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.
Partners in Academic Coaching for Excellence (PACE)
This partnership between Seneca County Juvenile Court and Heidelberg University provides tutoring services to students on probation. The grant-funded program pairs Heidelberg students as “academic coaches” with local children, ages 12-18, as a condition of the children’s probation. The Heidelberg tutors work on homework and literacy, and providing a positive perspective about school and learning. Dr. Karen Jones is directing PACE.
