Study abroad participants going to Ireland gathered April 8 for orientation at FVTC. Individuals from Moraine Park, NWTC, CVTC, and MATC met each other for the first time and will soon be traveling across the ocean together.
Courtney Hoffman recently moved to West Bend from Shawano seeking new job opportunities and an education. She has chosen to pursue the Business Management with emphasis on Management and Supervision degree at Moraine Park Technical College. Hoffman has had a positive experience at Moraine park with both online and face-to-face classes and stated that all of her instructors have been helpful, responsive and motivating.
As yet another academic year winds down here at Moraine Park, let’s take some time to check out the experiences of a few of our students, or what skills they find most valuable for their career field, in their own words:
Our academic year is winding down quickly! I am sure that the students graduating in May feel like the semester flew by! This year, as in past years, the prospective graduates attended the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS) Wisconsin annual convention April 3 – 5. This event allows students to network with others in the profession, meet with recruiters, learn about trends in laboratory medicine and compete in the student bowl. As an Medical Lab Technician (MLT), they will work in a field that studies body fluids to assist physicians in diagnosis and treatment.
To celebrate another academic year winding down, Moraine Park once again hosted “Last Blast Lunches” this week.
Free lunch was provided, along with entertainment from John Cassidy.
John Cassidy is a professional comedian, magician, and balloon artist who holds several Guinness World Records for balloon sculpting speed. His records include Most Balloon Sculptures Completed in One Hour and Most Balloon Sculptures completed in One Minute.
Everyone has seen the television shows that depict the nation’s prisons. From Orange is the New Black to 60 Days In, the television series show a highly dramatized version of life in prison. After all, drama sells and reality is not always glamorous. What about a prison riot, what would that experience be like?
The Criminal Justice Corrections Club get to experience just that, a prison riot. Next week, the several members of the Corrections Club will embark on a trip for West Virginia to participate in a Mock Prison Riot. The Mock Prison Riot is a annual training event hosted by the West Virginia Department of Corrections. The training event welcomes tactical teams from around the world to participate in the different training scenarios. Last year, over 20 different countries and over 30 different states were represented at the event held at a decommissioned prison in Moundsville, West Virginia.
What do the students get to do? The students participate in scenarios and act as inmates creating the disturbance. The different tactical teams will address the situation presented to them in the scenario and restore order. Moraine Park students are able to witness the team work and communication skills involved with being part of the criminal justice field.
In addition to the scenarios, students are also offered the opportunity to attend various workshops and seminars to enhance their knowledge base. As the week progresses, students are also able to interact with the international contingencies to gain insights on how different countries handle crime and incarceration and discuss what problems different areas of the world may be encountering.
