The Panther Military LLC has been off to a busy start loaded with action-packed events! The students from the LLC are a very tight-knit group and often organize group outings together via our facebook page. The first event that the LLC participated in was a panther bowling social with the Military Education Benefits Office (MEBO) and the Military and Veterans Resource Center (MAVRC). Students from the LLC attended the event and learned about military academic and supportive resources on campus via Sarah Terry from MAVRC and James Schmidt from MEBO. After the bowling concluded, the students and guest speakers enjoyed fresh pizza courtesy of Palms Gardens.
With midterms in full swing, I felt that it would be appropriate for our next event to be a focused on stress-relief activities. The Peer Health Educators from Norris Health Center are coming in and working with the LLC students and we will be making stress balls and having chocolate fondue. My residents from the LLC are very excited about this upcoming event.
