Student Organization Spotlight
The following registered student organizations were highlighted in Spring
Sigma Gamma is being highlighted for their
volunteer work with Hope Lodge, where they serve dinner, deserts, and drinks.
They enjoy giving back to the community and they collaborate with other
organizations throughout the semester to volunteer and make a difference. They
have had small events on campus that promotes sexual health and their
organization is becoming better every day.
Gamma Chi Epsilon has been highlighted for their dedicated and compassion to those in need. They are local service and social sorority that offers many of the same aspects that national sororities offer, but their organization is unique because it brings together women from every background to provide true friendships and bonds for life. They give back to the community in various ways and they have fun doing it! They volunteer at the Hope Lodge to support their philanthropy which is focused on cancer. They spend their weekends helping to clean the Hope Lodge, as well as host special events on some weekends, such as Bingo Nights. Their group may not seen big, but when compared to the community service they perform, it is a true statement of how something small can do something big.
PRSSA is another highlighted organizations. This organization gives their members opportunities to prepare for the real-world by providing them with numerous resources
such as networking opportunities, meeting professionals at national conferences,
scholarships and information on internships. Not only do they give back to the
community through projects like Operation Christmas Child and Relay for Life, they also know how to have
a good time!
FUSE (Ignite College
Ministry) is being highlighted for their diligence in ministering to over 250 different students. FUSE allows students to develop relationships with each other and with Christ,
and has a strong emphasis on service. FUSE is also focused on
developing strong student leaders, both in the classroom and the community. One particular service event that they
were a part of took place in October, when a group of students traveled to
Grifton, N.C. to help with Hurricane Clean-up efforts to those who were still in
need. It is the vision of FUSE to lead students into becoming fully devoted
followers of Christ, but also to serve those in their community, as well as
their campus. FUSE also sponsored two
large worship nights on campus this semester, where campus-wide mailers were
sent out, flyers were distributed, and posters were put up to spread the word,
and both events were a huge success!
