JOHNSON, VERMONT — Northern Vermont University-Johnson students involved with recent community service projects in the U.S. and Central America will discuss their experiences March 19 in campus presentations. The event, free for the public, will be at 4 p.m. in Bentley Hall 207.
Through NVU-Johnson’s community service program Badger Alternative Breaks, students worked with children at an environmentally focused camp, on a youth farm and in rural schools in California, Louisiana and Nicaragua. In the program, coordinated by NVU-Johnson’s SERVE office, students travel to their host community over their February break and participate in a week-long service project. The SERVE office has sponsored about 120 trips with 1,200 participants.
For more information about the presentations, call 635-1408.
On July 1, Johnson State College and Lyndon State College will become Northern Vermont University, a two-campus institution of higher education that combines the best of both colleges’ nationally recognized liberal arts and professional programs under a single administration. Driven by a mission to provide a high-quality, accessible, inclusive education for students in the state, the region, the nation and online, NVU is recruiting for its first class, which starts in the fall.
