On December 7, over 350 first-year students at Medaille College will fill the Kevin I. Sullivan Campus Center and present the results of their community-based learning projects completed over their first semester at the Community 101 Fair.
Students will display multimedia and poster presentations to faculty, staff, students and community representatives. The goal of Community 101 is to extend learning beyond the classroom by exploring Buffalo's history, ecology, technology, leadership and more through hands-on research and collaboration with local organizations. Organizations that students worked with during the year include Forest Lawn Cemetery, Irish Classical Theatre, The Buffalo Zoo, PUSH Buffalo, Buffalo Central Terminal, Darwin D. Martin House, and Vive, Inc., which assists local refugees.
The event is open to the public and begins at 2 p.m.
The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
