USU College of Humanities and Social Sciences to conduct second Student Giving Campaign Event Wednesday
LOGAN—For the second time during this semester alone, the student council of the USU College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHaSS) will be holding a marketing event to give students the opportunity to give back to the university and college that provides so much to them. The CHaSS Student Giving Campaign will continue Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the east side of Old Main, on the USU campus. The CHaSS Council will be providing free hot chocolate and information to learn about why it is important for students to financially give back to the college. Students will be given the opportunity to donate whatever amount they choose to future scholarship funds from the college. They can pay $5 for a CHaSS Student Giving Campaign t-shirt to account for their donation.
“I am a big believer in starting a habit of giving while you are young,” said CHaSS Senator Erika Norton. “The CHaSS Student Giving campaign gives students that opportunity and they know that every dollar donated goes directly back to students in the form of a scholarship. I am excited for the upcoming event and know it will be successful because of the giving nature of the students in our college.”
Wednesday’s event is a follow-up to a successful CHaSS Student Giving Campaign launch. Behind the efforts of members of the CHaSS Council, the launch took place Mon., Oct. 18 at the Taggart Student Center patio on the USU campus.
The primary purposes behind the event were numerous. Besides the opportunity to receive a free cookie, USU students were given the opportunity to pick up information about how to receive one of two $500 scholarships, effective next semester. The students were required to write a 500-word essay about why a liberal arts education is important.
“The College of Humanities and Social Sciences senator and council have begun another new tradition for our college,” said John Allen, dean of the college. ”This is just another example of how our students value one another and are willing to give to others so everyone gains a solid and exceptional education while here. I am very proud of our students who stepped forward to help others which in turn will help us all as we face the challenges of the future.”
