This week we had our first ever “Coffee Break,” in which free coffee/tea and cookies were provided in the cafeteria at break time for students and faculty in the various classes meeting each evening. It was great to chat with so many people as we set up advising appointments for spring 2014 and passed out information: the Fall 2013 “Survival Guide” and blog/Facebook flyers.
A HUGE thank you to those who supported those in the Human Services capstone class by bringing it the items that they seek for their products: cell phones for Alesandra Sanchez, baby items for Kayla Neilsen, and canned goods for Parker English. Each will benefit the organizations that each of these students are helping; thank you!
