Building Up Over Break

 Kean University students partnered with Habitat for Humanity for this year's Alternative Spring Break project. The project took place from Tuesday, March 12 to Saturday, March 16 at an Asbury Park Habitat for Humanity project that will be home to a single mother and her four children. The project boasted 16 volunteers in total to help out with the house. Volunteers were tasked with a variety of jobs including house sheathing, general labor, woodworking and more. 

How to Come Out of One's Shell

One issue that is prevalent in college students is the fear or inability to interact with peers. Many students find this intimidating, yet in order to succeed in today's society it is a vital skill to have. To help combat this issue, the Student Organization Class of 2019 hosted a professional development workshop March 5 titled, "When You're Not a People Person: How to Come Out of Your Shell." The intention of this workshop was to help students communicate more effectively and comfortably with those around them and ultimately help students understand others better.  

Month of Empowerment

The month of March is dedicated every year to International Women's History Month, a month for remembering and honoring the historical and influential female figures throughout history and those around us in the modern day. To commemorate the beginning of International Women's History Month, Kean University, Student Organization and P.U.L.S.E. hosted the Women's History Month Kickoff to start off a month of events in commemoration women. This year Women's History Month's theme is Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence, referring to generations of women who fought to end war, violence and injustice.  

Let the Countdown Begin!

The countdown until the last day of the semester for seniors officially began March 6 at the Grad Fair. Seniors flooded into the Miron Student Center Atrium (MSC) to celebrate their achievements and their time spent at Kean. Additionally, there were many tables set up with useful resources for seniors as they complete the last days of their undergraduate years.
