Buffalo City Mission Highlights Medaille Students’ Work as ‘Community Changers’
Students in Medaille’s “Children's Literature” course (ENG 375) recently visited the Buffalo City Mission to donate new reading materials to the after-school program and read to the children. As part of a semester-long Community-Based Learning Project, the students worked with assistant professor Dr. Alice Villaseñor (Division of Humanities) and Library Director Andy Yeager to research age-appropriate books to add to the materials used by LEAP (Literacy Enrichment Afterschool Program).
The Buffalo City Mission website called the Medaille students “Community Changers," explaining that “[e]ach student had the opportunity to present us with a piece of literature of her choosing and the reason she chose it. It was an inspiration. We are so thankful for nearly 25 new books to our collection for the kids!”

The Faculty Research, Scholarship and Creativity Panel was open to the entire campus community and aimed to celebrate faculty scholarship, mentor students on the research process, and promote the annual spring semester Student Research, Scholarship & Creativity Day.
The second phase of development at the Medaille Sports Complex, slated to be completed in summer 2020, will add a baseball diamond, three softball diamonds, four dugouts, two batting cages, press boxes, scoreboards, and a multipurpose field to the already robust site.
Biology students at Medaille will now have 10 acres of land in Amherst to use as a "living laboratory" to study ecology, thanks to a wetland donation made by Frank and Jeanette Levin.
