On Thursday, April 26, the Brooklyn Center campus held its first “Full Bellies 4 Full Time Students” event. The Education department is constantly trying to show students the importance and benefit of taking more classes, so Andrew Kagol, Associate Director of Career Services, came up with the idea to entice students with food in exchange for loading up on credits. 90 students at the Brooklyn Center campus were elligible for the meal because of their full time status of 12 or more credits. Of the 90 invited, 30 responded that they would love to participate.
Brooklyn Center held two meals, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. Students were treated to a pasta meal from Davanni’s, which included salad, breadsticks, and dessert. Staff and faculty mingled with the students during the meal to congratulate them for their choice to take a higher credit load. Ann Deiman, Dean of Faculty, said, “It was great to see how many students are taking advantage of a full credit load. These students who are able to take more classes are thrilled about the new tiered tuition as well, which excites all of us at Brooklyn Center.”
Thank you to all of the students who participated in the meal!
