Below are some reminders for you as you live with us on campus:
RESIDENT ASSISTANTS EXPERIENCE THE WORLD DOWN UNDER
Through a unique partnership between Kent State University Residence Services and Deakin University Residential Services, ten of our student leaders (accompanied by two professional staff members) traveled to Australia for a short-term study abroad program. Twelve students from Deakin Residential Services were amazing hosts during the time away. The program took place November 16- 23, 2019.
COMMUNITY 2 COMMUNITY SERVICE PROGRAM IN ACTION
As part of the Department of Residence Services Community 2 Community Service Program, Leebrick and Korb Halls residents and staff (Rachel Harris, Cameron Aloway, Kiara Carter, and Meghan Miller) recently visited the Center of Hope in Ravenna, Ohio to volunteer. The volunteers helped LaJoyce Harris, Program Manager, organize the pantry and accept multiple donations. The Community 2 Community Service Program is a partnership between the Department of Residence Services and a dozen local community non-profit organizations.
ALTERNATIVE WINTER BREAK TRIP PROVIDES OPPORTUNITY FOR SERVICE AND LEARNING
Over winter break, 16 Kent State students and staff members traveled to Washington, D.C. for an Alternative Winter Break trip, where the group focused on hunger and homelessness in the nation’s capital. Students stayed in the Steinbruck Center, a ministry of Luther Place Memorial Church, that provides research opportunities to learn about the root causes of poverty and homelessness. Upon arrival, the group took part in a Homelessness and Poverty in D.C. Workshop, then became involved by volunteering with community service at D.C.
