As a college student, you'll spend a lot of time in class, but even more time outside of the classroom. Here are some examples of what our students are doing to build their professional resumes and have some fun.
Collegiate Middle Level Association (CMLA)
CMLA is the collegiate affiliate of the National Middle School Association, providing service, professional growth and leadership development opportunities for its members. While the emphasis is on teaching and working with children in grades 4-9, any student may participate.
Kappa Delta Pi is an international honor society open to juniors and seniors in the Department of Education who meet certain criteria, including a high scholastic standing.
HAND- Heidelberg Awareness of Needs and Disabilities
HAND's aim is to spread awareness of special needs and disabilities throughout the campus and in the community. The group works with the School of Opportunity in Seneca County, OH. The students hold fun events for the residents of the School of Opportunity such as hosting them for lunch at the dining hall in the university and having a special day of activities to help celebrate diversity.
The CARE (Caring About Relationships and Education) House is one of Heidelberg’s Cooperative Learning Communities (CLCs); the CLCs are student-developed, service learning projects in which members live in College-owned homes.
Residents work with the Education Department and sponsoring agency The North Central Ohio Educational Service Center to accomplish the following goals:
- Provide opportunities for prospective students to have overnight campus visits and ask questions of current students, particularly Education majors
- Volunteer monthly at area schools and education programs
- Provide volunteer opportunities for the campus community that will benefit area schools and education programs
- Invite children and community school representatives to participate in on-campus activities
- Sponsor an on-campus “Operation Christmas” project that will allow students and faculty to provide for needy children in Africa
CARE House projects already completed or planned include co-sponsoring the Christi Thomas Memorial Lemonade Stand, providing childcare for an alumni event, organizing a story hour and hosting an Education Department luncheon.
