From March 23-25, 2018 Moraine Park Student Senate President, Alex McCleary and Experiential Learning Coordinator, Anne Lemke, both members of our Moraine Park Fair Trade Team, had the privilege to attend the 2018 Fair Trade Campaigns National Conference in Washington DC.
Moraine Park Technical College’s student senate is hosting a free public event with Green Bay Packer legend Jerry Kramer. Students, staff, and community members are invited to the Fond du Lac campus commons area, on Tuesday, April 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., to listen to the two-time Super Bowl champion’s story.
Across the country, there are millions of college students striving to be a better version of themselves. Many of them work, have families and are juggling multiple responsibilities, but still, they have made the commitment to their education. Moraine Park students are no different. In fact, the one thing that all college students could probably all agree on is that college, in general, is far from easy. However, if you walk the hallways of any of the three Moraine Park campuses you will see a robust list of student names on the wall. If you’re wondering, there are 1,163 to be exact. (Yes, I counted.)
Many of you may have been wondering what all the construction was all about on the second floor of the A building. After all the banging, pounding and drilling, the dust has cleared and construction is complete. Come and visit to see what’s new!
The Student Success Center (SSC) is bright and airy – a great, quiet place to come study and have instructors answer your questions on reading, writing and math. Here you can earn a GED, study for your nursing test, get help learning to write papers, and so much more! We have private study rooms and lots of resources to help you brush up on your skills. Newer additions to the SSC include some fun games where students win prizes, as well as a Student of the Week Award.
What images does the name MAXIMUS conjure up? Does your mind go to a powerful gladiator? A saint? A Roman emperor?
In this case, he’s the mild-mannered and friendly mascot at Moraine Park. Maximus has been around for a number of years, but this year he’s gotten a new look. We affectionately refer to him as “Maximus 2.0.” He’s been brought into the twenty-first century with a new look, several new poses representing various College program areas of study, and a new attitude.
Thanks to Student Life, free donuts and snacks, social hours and plenty of laughs with performances from Comedian Adam Grabowski welcomed students back this week for the start of the Spring 2018 semester.
Student Life is responsible for campus activities and events, student government and clubs, leadership development, community service, volunteerism and awards. Getting involved in Student Life at Moraine Park allows students the opportunity to enhance and enrich their college experience. Student Life provides students the ability to meet new people, develop leadership skills, enhance their resume, and network and travel to conferences and competitions through student government and student clubs.
But did you know often times Student Life activities at our campuses aren’t just limited to just students?
