The 2016 Alcohol Awareness Event 'A Night Out' sponsored by the Healthy Hornets held on April 7th was a huge success.  Students from Health Promotion and Mass Communications assisted in the planning and activity.

The Public and Allied Health Organization (PAHO) participated in a Habitat for Humanity Building on Friday, April 1.  It was not only a good time but a huge learning experience as well.

Students created 2 sets of steps - one from the garage to the house, the other in the house into the crawl space; they built the handrail leading to the second story; framed a retaining wall for the HVAC unit downstairs; and did the ceiling in the front porch. The students used power tools ---and no injuries! Circular saws, hand saws, nail guns, and hammers involved.

It was a rainy day but totally worth it!  View slide show
