Building on the Block: New Half Block Programming

The Charge: Develop new Half Block programming that will enhance the existing "for-credit" programs, yet be focused on helping students explore interests, develop new skills, and enhance existing skills.

What's Happening: The group led by VP of Student Life Mike Edmonds organized 21 new courses and outdoor education programs ranging from graduate test preparation, IT skill building, public speaking, leadership, careers in healthcare, and craft production. Three hundred ninety-eight students participated in the new courses, which culminated in a dinner class on etiquette. One participant in the new Half Block had this to say: "I thought it was fantastic, and love that they offered career oriented classes, especially because I would be disinclined to think about career stuff during a class, especially a hard one. It was a lull on campus and a great time to think about how to advance career/internship searches during the block."
