Students, staff make “our house” shine at Jacksonville University Spruce-Up

Students, staff make “our house” shine at Jacksonville University Spruce-Up

For Jacksonville University student Andrew Soloway, Feb. 24 was all about cleaning up “our house.”

The senior in economics /business administration was out on the St. Johns River shoreline with fellow rowing team members, picking up trash as part of the annual JU Spring Spruce-Up.

“This is about the whole school coming together,” the Varsity coxswain said as a stiff breeze blew in. “This is like cleaning our home court.  The baseball team makes sure its facility is clean, and we want to be sure we keep our facility clean. And we have the largest one. The river.”

Several hundred students, faculty and staff took part in the seventh annual Spruce-Up, designed to landscape and boost the look of the campus grounds. Participants were treated to a lunch of hamburgers and hotdogs, and prizes were raffled off as well.

Among other things, a new JU monument was erected on a new base, areas were re-sodded and shrubs were planted across campus.

EWC Students Integrating Social Media Tools

As I teach Educational Technology course 250 the dynamic benefits of
Social Media there is an influx of digital technologies that are embedding
themselves in future careers of these students. Technology gradually
changes my student’s career choices, lifestyles and the decisions they
make in connecting with others in a digital environment. The instructional
components change as the integration of technology changes the role of
the instructor from a lecturer to a facilitator of learning.
