Wednesday, June 01, 2016

As the spring semester drew to a close, Watson Student Leaders helped greet incoming freshmen at Pre-Seahawk Saturday. They also greeted guests at the Razor Walker Awards Dinner and served as ambassadors at WCE’s AIG conference.

Thirty-three WSLs volunteered at Work on Wilmington on April 23. Students also volunteered to assist faculty on special projects, including the Fly Trap Family Fun Day at Carolina Beach State Park, the Duke Energy Science Night at Howe Pre-K Center and the Forest of DREAMS mural project in downtown Wilmington.

The WSLs partnered with the UNCW Yoga Club to host a Yoga-thon to raise funds to build desks for school children in Malawi and joined freshmen in UNCW’s Education Learning Community (ELC) for a social event at Defy Gravity Trampoline Park.

In total, the Watson Student Leaders completed 1,559 hours of service to the college, the university and the community during the 2015-16 academic year.

About the Education Learning Community (ELC)

The Watson College introduced the ELC in 2014 to provide first-year education majors a residential learning community that supports academic, social and educational development. Through the ELC, students have the opportunity to live with other pre-education majors, connect with Watson faculty and staff, attend seminars and participate in education field experiences prior to being admitted into the Watson College of Education.
