Bellin College Students Named to Fall 2016 Dean's List
On January 7-15, Bellin College students, faculty members, and Bellin Health medical providers traveled to Alda Punta de Palma, Izabel in Guatemala for a medical mission trip.
Bellin College has given me many opportunities to learn and grow not only as a person, but as a future nurse as well. I am nearing graduation and only have 2 sessions left of my program, and even though I will continue to learn every day from here on out in my nursing career, I believe that I have been properly prepared for wherever I end up after graduation.
On January 2nd, four Bellin College nursing students and one faculty member set out for Chicago for an urban immersion service experience at the Darst Center. The Center is a social justice education center located in the Bridgeport neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. The Center is unique in providing opportunities for young people to see more clearly the faces pushed to the margins of our society. The Darst immersion program focuses on the issues surrounding homelessness, poverty, food insecurity, incarceration, immigration, and education. In addition to participating in programs and services, time was set aside each day for the group to debrief and reflect on what they experienced, how perceptions and interpretations affect these issues, and how they were both personally and professionally affected by these experiences.
Students from Bellin College will join two professors from the Bellevue school and a pair of health professionals from Bellin Health on a flight Saturday morning to Guatemala.
