Last week we talked about the rise in mental health challenges in higher education, specifically on college campuses. With 14% of college students saying they dropped out of college due to mental health issues, the need for help is there. However, tackling the issue is more complex than just offering more counselors and encouraging students to make appointments for 1:1 help. Because of this, campus administrators are starting to find more unique ways to reach students who may be struggling.
Thank you for following along with us during Pride Month and learning about some fantastic organizations aimed at providing safe and inclusive places for LGBTQ+ people both on and off campus. Here’s a recap of the spotlight organizations:
It’s Earth Week! Campuses across the US are known for actively working to reduce their carbon footprint and there are organizations out there holding them to those commitments. Second Nature and The American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment is one of the organizations addressing global warming and the impact of college campuses.
Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a celebration of the integral role women play in science and technology fields. There has been a push in recent years to empower girls and women to find an interest in science, as there has been a decline in women embarking on STEM careers. Organizations like The Scientista Foundation are dedicated to such a cause.
We’re all stuck inside a bit more right now and looking for things to do to occupy our time. Art is a great outlet for so many and craft stores have been seeing items fly off their shelves, presumably by those of us looking for a relaxing pastime or something enriching to do with the kids in between virtual learning. Unsurprisingly for Kappa Pi members, art is often seen as a therapy, which is perfect for 2020!
Tomorrow is Election Day in the United States and it is shaping up to be the most important election in many voters' lifetimes. When Americans head to the polls on November 3rd, 2020, they’re looking to elect a leader. Omicron Delta Kappa is no stranger to leadership -- it’s in their name! ODK is The National Leadership Honor Society.
We last talked about the changing seasons and stormy weather celebrated by meteorology students of Chi Epsilon Pi, but if you’re wondering how to prepare your lawn and protect your plants for the upcoming dip in temps, you should ask a member of Pi Alpha Xi!
Up in New England where our office is located, the days are getting shorter and the weather is much colder. The rainy day today got us thinking about Chi Epsilon Pi, the honor society for students who dedicate themselves to the study of meteorology!
Earlier this week we talked about the remarkable academic achievements of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, including her membership of Phi Kappa Phi. So, what does it take to be a member of an honor society with a Supreme Court Justice alum? We’re going to find out!
Founded in 1869 by four law students at the University of Michigan School of Law, Phi Delta Phi is the oldest legal organization in continuous existence, even predating the American Bar Association. It was created as a means to champion students who choose to dedicate their lives to a just legal system.
If you’re considering a career in the healthcare field, you might want to explore respiratory therapy. US News & World Report rates respiratory therapy among the top 25 healthcare support careers and their need is on the rise, largely in part due to the effects from the COVID-19 pandemic.
