8月星期二. 1, the grounds of 澳门威尼斯人网址’s 克里特岛 campus rang, not with the bells of Merrill Tower, but the laughter of children and drum beats from performances by 克里特岛 High School’s drumline and cheer team, POYDS舞蹈团 and the Asian 社区 & 文化中心. The university co-hosted a Back to School 社区 Picnic with the City of 克里特岛, the 克里特岛 Police Department, 克里特岛 Public Schools and Public Health Solutions.
The event had around 400 attendees at its busiest, and around 400 drawstring bags filled with school supplies were given to area students.
The evening was capped off by a keynote speech given by Jaime Carias, civic engagement coordinator at the University of Southern California. Carias’ speech was given in Spanish, with translation and headsets provided by 克里特岛 Public Schools.
In addition to the co-hosts, event sponsors included Smithfield, 雀巢上贴, 顶峰银行, 鲍尔保险, 拉法屋面 & 建设, POYDS舞蹈团, 水晶的面包店, 超级拉丁, 既, Epicentro, Carniceria San Fernando, 莫泽会计 & Tax Service, Bryan 克里特岛 Area Medical Center, Henning’s 克里特岛 Floral & Gifts, Vero’s Tax Service LLC and Smart Chicken.

老虎起飞 helps students transition into college environment
老虎起飞 launched at the end of last summer to impressive success. The program was initiated in an effort to ease the transition into college life for incoming freshman, especially first-generation, out-of-state and fall sport students. 去年, the average GPA of 老虎起飞 participants was one point higher than students who were eligible to participate and didn’t.
The program returned this year from August 2-11. 学生, staff and faculty led workshops on the skills critical and resources available at Doane for academic success. Topics covered include: time management, goal-setting, note-taking, reading and writing strategies. Social activities like sand volleyball, BBQs and s’mores ensured participants bonded with each other. Once classes started August 14, 老虎起飞 participants had friends by their side and were acquainted with campus.
学生 are back in residence halls
Move-in on Doane's 克里特岛 campus is split up over time, with students in 老虎起飞 and fall sports moving in first, toward the start of August, followed by first-year students and returning students. It's an exciting time for students, for parents and for Doane staff, faculty and administration.
