Cross-Cultural Club Spring Easter Project
In early April, members of the Cross-Cultural Club completed their spring project and assembled more than 40 Easter baskets for donation to the Atlantic City Rescue Mission. The baskets were filled with candy, small toys, coloring books and erasable drawing boards. Shirley Shields and Michael Kammer, club advisers, assisted club members with this project.
Earth Day Celebration
The Atlantic City Campus celebrated Earth Day on April 18. Students were given peat pots with flower seeds made by The Cross-Cultural Club. Additionally, the club displayed posters of nature from various countries. Thanks to the club volunteers and advisers, Shirley Shields and Michael Kammer, ESL professors, for all their hard work in making the day a huge success.
Student Services provided the students with giveaways that consisted of: Earth Lolli-pops, stress balls and key chains. They also provided sunglasses, bubbles, book bags with notebooks, pens and lanyards. Thanks to Caesar Niglio, master technician, for providing pretzels donated by the ACCCEA.
Sexual Assault Awareness
The Women’s Center from Linwood brought Sexual Assault Awareness to the campus on Wednesday, April 19. They provided a host of activities for students and staff: The Denim Day Project, where students decorated jeans to tell the stories of survivors, and learned about its origin that came from a case in Italy when a woman was forced to remove her jeans by her rapist. Because she removed her own jeans, the courts determined consent and set her rapist free. Protestors assembled on the steps of the court and wore jeans in objection of that decision and in support of the survivor. I Can, We Can- an activity where painting on hands and writing messages on them to be posted on social media, The Clothesline Display Project- an activity where victims of sexual assault told their story on T-shirts or memories of those who passed away from sexual assault. Thanks to Karen Massie, Sexual Assault Supervisor, for bringing her team to the Atlantic City Campus.
