Coming Events

Zumbathon Monday, Oct. 3; Students Ask for Faculty Staff Support for Diabetes Association
It's time to dance to your health! On Monday, October 3 at 12 noon in the Gym, MCCC's Student Activities hosts the first ever "Zumbathon." Multiple instructors who teach at area gyms are volunteering their time. They include Donna Friel, Laura Shappnus and MCCC faculty member Helen Tanzini. Proceeds will be donated to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Suggested donation is $5, but any donation will be accepted! Wear sneakers; water will be provided. Free water bottles with a "Fun Zumba Design" will be given to participants as well!

Even if you aren’t planning to Zumba, please consider making a donation to this important Student Activities event. With Type II diabetes reaching epidemic proportions and affecting increasing numbers of young adults, this is a pressing cause. An ADA representative will be present with information. Donations may be dropped off in the Student Activities Office, (SC111), or delivered on Monday to the PE Building. All are invited to attend, hear great music and watch the dancers.
For more information contact Danielle Garruba, ext. 3412.

Nursing Alum Mischele Lewis Praises Faculty
Five years after graduation, Nursing Alum Mischele Lewis has amassed a wealth of experience. She recalls a rigorous curriculum taught by dedicated faculty members such as Donna Penn, Margaret Fink and Judy Reid, who offered lots of encouragement and feedback. She also gained valuable first-hand experience in a variety of clinical settings. "Without Mercer, I am not sure what kind of nurse I would be," Lewis says. "My instructors helped me - a raw, rough piece of clay - and molded me into someone who is making a difference in the world."
