From Globe University-Sioux Falls Service Learning Coordinator-Brandy Gruis:
The Fall Quarter is in full swing, along with that students are starting to become more involved with different service-learning projects in a number of classes. The end of October is just the beginning of the service-learning this quarter.
The first project in the Fall Quarter began in Global Citizenship. We had some students help the Washington Pavilion with their Spooky Science night at the Pavilion. Students dressed up and worked with different children in a variety of capacities while at this event.
October 26th is a big day for our Medical Assistant Program here at Globe University Sioux Falls. Students in classes such as Patient Care Sciences I and CMA Review are working with the National Kidney Foundation on their Kidney Early Evaluation Program. Students will be helping with the entire process from check-in to screening.
Although October is almost over, November proves to be even more involved with various service-learning projects. Students will be assisting with Blue Star Families Appreciation on November 12. This is an appreciation event sponsored by Active Generations as a thank you for those individual’s with a family member on Active Duty.
November 19th, Our Vet Tech department is teaming up to host a Nail Trim and Dental Clinic at Your Pet Stop from 9:00-12:00am. New students and our more veteran students will be working together to host this clinic which is open and free to the public.
These are just a few projects that are happening at Globe University Sioux Falls. With each week more and more students are beginning work on their projects. Stay tuned to more details about service-learning throughout the Fall Quarter.
