IRR seniors head to Nicaragua

On January 19, seven International Relief and Rescue students, alongside IRR instructor Aaron Kent, traveled to Nicaragua for their annual overseas semester—the final step in completing the degree.

This year’s group includes seniors Emilian Grigor, Amy Matsuda, Jonatan Rojas, Shannice Baker, Tyler Underwood, Tylar Bissell, and Connar Kragel.

While in Nicaragua, students will obtain experience in the fields of medicine, community interactions, and international development.

Union student's essay wins McDonald's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Essay Contest

When Union College sophomore J-Fiah Reeves heard about the opportunity to enter the McDonald’s Martin Luther Kind, Jr. Essay Contest, he jumped at the chance to explore the life and ideas of the civil rights leader.

The contest asked Nebraska students to write what King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech meant to them. “I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn more about Dr. King and listen to the whole speech,” said Reeves.

At Union Market, students can eat cereal to help feed hungry Lincolnites

For the next month, Union College students and the Lincoln community can eat at Union Market, the college’s dining hall, and help hungry Lincolnites at the same time.

Now through February 20, “Kellogg has partnered with Union College to encourage students to make the choice that makes a difference by participating in the ‘Eat.Share.Prosper.’ program,” said Jennifer Jaacks, a spokesperson for Kelloggs, in a news release.

Taking every opportunity to lead

In her light gray, long-sleeved Social Work Club t-shirt and dark skinny jeans, Shawna Ansari, 24, sat cross-legged on a rustic oak coffee table in the second floor lounge of Rees Hall. A senior at Union College, Ansari reflected on life events that resulted in leadership roles, both at her summer job at North Star Camp and at Union College.

Smiling as the autumn sunshine streamed through the lounge window and illuminated the amber glint in her eyes, she told me it all began at age nine with her first trip to North Star Camp in Brainerd, Minn.

Campus clubs build leadership skills

Like many student leaders at Union College, Sameera Sigdel didn't go looking to be in charge. But thanks to Union's leadership minor and campus work experience, when the time came she was ready.

Born and raised in Nepal, Sigdel first arrived in America in 2009 to attend Campion Academy in Colorado. Told that it was a safe place for international students to attend school, Sigdel started classes that September—a choice that set her on the path to Union College.
