Trunk - or - Treat is Really Sweet

Trunk Or TreatAutumn is here in full swing. The leaves are turning, the temperature is dropping and more importantly everyone’s favorite time of the year is right around the corner. Each year at the end of October hundreds of thousands of children go out dressed as their favorite superhero or princess to collect candy.

However, the biggest concern for parents and loved ones if how difficult it can be for children to do so in a safe manner. The solution…Monmouth University’s Trunk or Treat!

The event was introduced to the campus and surrounding community by the First Year Service Project last fall as a way for Monmouth University to provide a safe place for children to trick or treat

Former Student Coordinator and alumni, Deanna Getty said “It gives me so much joy to see the students of Monmouth working together to do something wonderful for the community. Seeing the joy on children’s faces last year was priceless and I can’t wait to see how successful the trunk or treat is year!” Most children are unable to go out late on the night of Halloween to collect candy because they have school early the next day, or their parents work, or the family doesn’t feel safe with their children out too late.

Getting Involved with the NSSLHA

Involved NSSLHAThe National Student Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (NSSLHA) provides both undergraduate and graduate students interested in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology with a support system that encourages the pursuit of these professions.

Monmouth University launched its Speech-Language Pathology master’s program in 2014, and since then there has been an increased spark of interest in the field of study amongst undergraduates.

The program’s rigorous curriculum, implementation of clinical experience, research opportunities, and experienced faculty has deemed it to be under “pre-accreditation” status by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

This status signifies that the program has met the standards issued by ASHA. Although the SLP master’s program is becoming nationally recognized, many undergraduate students are uncertain of where to inquire information about this particular field of study.

Student Activities Board Goes ‘All In’ for Casino Night

SAB Casino NightThe Student Activities Board held their annual “Casino Night” on Saturday, Oct. 1 in Wilson Hall to show parents a great time during Parent’s Weekend.

It is that time of year when SAB plans and executes all of their amazing events for the student body to have a good time, as well as give them something to do on campus. Luckily for this specific event, it landed on the weekend of Parents Weekend.

This year’s theme revolved around the 1920’s Jazz era, and the décor and layout of the event embodied this theme. Concert’s Chair for the Student Activities Board and junior business major James Ruffino stated, “I couldn’t have thought of Casino Night going any better than it did. The turnout was absolutely amazing and the set up and appearance of the event was great. It goes to show that all the time and effort the executive board puts into these events are worth it”.

Casino Night is essentially an event where people can come and play casino games for a chance to win amazing door prizes. As students and their families entered Wilson Hall, they were greeted by board members welcoming them to the event and showing them to where they get their chips to begin to play the different games.

At the table, more board members handed each attendee a cup of chips worth $3,000 and that is what they would use to bet. Once they had their chips, they were able to play any games they want. At this year’s Casino Night, the games of choice included Craps, Roulette, Texas Holdem, Blackjack, and slot machines.

The unique aspect of this event is that all the dealers at the tables are either board members from SAB or Professional Staff from the University who volunteered their night to help the event run as smooth as possible. Aside from just playing casino games, attendees were welcomed with small finger foods and beverages.
