Recently, Globe University-Sioux Falls hosted Student Appreciation Day. Since it was also Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution, the lounge was decorated in a red, white and blue theme. In conjunction with Constitution Day, students could also take a Constitution-themed quiz to win prizes provided by Dean of Students Aimee Miritello.
Staff served American staples such as cotton candy, grilled cheese sandwiches, pretzels, and a red, white and blue cake. The cake was gobbled up quite rapidly, and some staff members learned how to make cotton candy. Students also had a chance to take a break from classes by playing skee ball or indulge in some face painting.
“It’s always an exciting day when we, as an organization, get to celebrate what makes us unique and special, which is our students. They are the reason we all do what we do and challenge and motivate us to continue to work hard on their behalf,” Ann Kolbreck, director of career services, said.
“I really enjoyed the cotton candy and grilled cheese at the event! We were very excited about this student appreciation day and the activities that were provided. Nobody could beat Marshall (Peterson) at skee ball, but we had a lot of fun!” Holly Horst, veterinary technology student, said.
“This was one of the best student appreciation days I have been to while attending Globe. I would like to challenge our program chair Kim Smith to a rematch in skee ball, but she’s in charge of my grades, so I’ll let her have this one!” veterinary student Marshall Peterson said.
This quarterly event is a way for the Sioux Falls staff to say thank you to all the students for their hard work and enrollment at Globe University.
