Volunteers Needed for Healthy Athletes Program
What is Healthy Athletes?
This program provides free health screenings in a fun, welcoming environment that removes anxiety that people with intellectual disabilities often face when visiting a doctor.

You will provide guided health education to athletes through our health promotion discipline! Our health promotion stations include: Nutrition, Physical Activity, Hydration, Hygiene, and Tobacco Prevention/Cessation.
They are recruiting for two shifts of volunteers: 11am-2pm and 2pm-6pm. The event is Saturday, July 14, 2018.
Aspiring Educators Club
The Aspiring Educators Club is a new group in the College of Education to build connections, advocate for current and future education professionals, and connect students with resources they need to be successful before and after graduation. This new club is looking for people to share ideas and get involved in planning events for next year. They hope to collaborate with other clubs, schools, and educational organizations to bring the community together and provide opportunities to truly help the education system in our city, the state of Oregon, and the nation as a whole.
They will be hosting a social Wednesday, May 30, at 5:00 pm in FURM 404 for anyone who is interested in being a part of the club. They will be hanging out, de-stressing before finals and gathering ideas to take into consideration when planning for next year. Anyone with ideas, no matter how big or small, is strongly encouraged to come! Also, there will be free pizza and cookies.
This new student club is a great way to connect with your fellow OSU students who are thinking about a career in the field of education while building community and developing resources!

Puerto Rico Service Learning Trip: Reflection and Information Session
In Spring 2016, a group of Oregon State University students traveled to Puerto Rico for a service learning trip. A second trip was held in December of that year, with a focus on creating curriculum for K-12 school agriculture programs in the region.
Program organizers intended to return to Puerto Rico, but in 2017, a devastating hurricane rocked the island, destroying infrastructure and driving many out of their homes. The natural disaster shifted priorities for trip organizers, but also galvanized their desire to return and focus their work on areas that would directly benefit those living under difficult conditions in Puerto Rico.
During the last week of March of this year, 32 students from eight different OSU colleges flew to Puerto Rico for Spring Break to do a variety of projects in conjunction with Puerto Rico’s land grant university, University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez. They worked in the town of San Sebastián, which is in the northwest part of the island. That’s where the Segunda Unidad Bernaldo Mendez Jimenez school is located, and OSU representatives and Mayaguez officials worked closely with school administrators to create a service learning plan that will benefit students there.
The students who went on the service learning trip, will be presenting their projects at the MU Horizon Room on Monday, June 4, 3-4pm. There will also be a 30-minute period when attendees can hear about individual experiences, during the open poster presentation. This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff!
