Activities from Fall 2017

In the Fall 2017 semester, PASS mentors and mentees participated in residence hall tabling for Be the Best U. During tabling they gave out information about campus and community resources to help support their fellow students.

PASS mentors and mentees showed support for veterans and active military members by attending the Bloomsburg Veteran’s Day Parade downtown. Prior to the parade, they showed off their creativity during group sign making sessions. The parade participants and other spectators definitely appreciated the signs, and everyone was happy to see a group of students at the parade!

PASS participants spread holiday cheer to a local nursing home by making over 50 holiday cards for residents. We enjoyed snacks and admired each other’s artistic abilities during several group card making sessions.
