14448854_978605438917164_6282734762068816448_n

UPC hosted its annual Gala on October 8, 2016. This year’s theme is Secret Garden, and did they go all out on it! Instead of hosting the gala indoors like in previous years, UPC decided to bring the event outdoors to the Slayter Commons. There were strings of lights, chocolate fountains, flower arches, flower arrangements, and a whole Jazz band. Although the weather got a little cold (typical bipolar Ohio), the turnout was great (food was gone in like an hour if that’s any indication). 

CCCE did a little survey of our own, and found out that what people like most was the decoration and the food, especially the fondue.

Spring Break Away 2016

This spring break, thirteen Denison students traveled to Gaston, North Carolina to volunteer at their local KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) College Preparatory charter school. The school is located in a low-income, rural area where college preparation has been inadequate in public education. At KIPP, they call themselves a “Rural Revolution” because they strive to bring education reform to areas that are commonly ignored. At the school, students worked from 7:30a.m. until 5:00p.m. to help teachers and administrators with various tasks.
