Much of the work of the senate takes place through an elaborate network of... Continue Reading →

SOC 221 REFLECTION

Another requirement for my Leader Advancement Scholarship and Leadership minor is SOC 221 Social Problems.

LAS-in-the-D

Wow! LAS-in-the-D was such a successful trip jam-packed with so many new memories and learning outcomes. Detroit felt and looked so different than I expected (haven't been to the city in almost 2 years) and we, LAS, truly had a blast. Planned for the trip was a visit with the students at Jalen Rose Leadership... Continue Reading →
