Trunk-Or-Treating

Greek Life Suspended IndefinitelyThe First Year Service Project hosted their 4th annual Trunk-or-Treat, on Sunday, Oct. 28.

 This event started in 2015, as a way for The University to reach local families engaged with the campus community.

The event was held in Parking Lot 16, outside of the Jules L. Plangere Center.  This event features various clubs and organizations to participate in a family friendly community event where they host a “trunk” and give out candy. This event was free and open to the public.    

Katherine Browna, Coordinator of Transition and Leadership, oversaw the event.  “We had over 300 Monmouth students/employees participated to host those trunks, over 1000 community members came over the course of the 2 hours,” said Browna.

“The event is hosted by The First Year Service Project, which is an organization out of the Office of Transition and Leadership Programs that works to provide community service opportunities and community engagement through on and off-campus service events,” Browna continued.

Many families from neighboring communities come to Monmouth for this event.  David Aroscera, a resident of Long Branch, has brought his family here for the second year in a row.  “I think this is a really great event the University offers,” said Aroscera.  “It’s safe, fun, and my kids love it.”

Greek Life Suspended Indefinitely, No Deadline for Proposal

default article imageThe Greek Life Suspension enacted by administrators will continue indefinitely.

This suspension was announced via an email from President Grey Dimenna, Esq. on Sept. 6, following a variety of problems within the Greek community, including low academic performance, hazing allegations, and two fraternities being closed by the University.

President Dimenna and Vice President for Student Life and Leadership Engagement Mary Anne Nagy decided to let the Greek community take control of the reigns by submitting a proposal that would offer “sustained and meaningful” reform within the current operations. 

A rough draft was required by Aug. 15 and the final draft was slated for Oct. 15.  However, there was no draft submitted by Aug. 20 which sparked the initial suspension.

There is now no deadline for the Greeks to submit a proposal.

“I have not seen a proposal yet, neither has the President,” said Nagy.  “I think that’s fine; I want them to take a deep serious look at the root causes of these issues.  If it takes a little longer to really make a good report, we’d rather have it right than have it rushed.”

The three student-run leadership councils overseeing the Greek community are the Inter-Fraternity, Panhellenic, and Greek Senate Councils.  They work in conjunction with the University to govern about 750 students currently involved in Greek life.

Come Get Dirty in the Woods with the Outdoors Club

Outdoors ClubYou wake in the throws of friends’ blankets, pillows, sleeping bags and snores, all packed inside your cozy tent. Tucked under a pine, you can hear the tree’s boughs brush against the wind, threading itself through the swell of leaves.

Someone is making pancakes, attentively tapping each of the six dollops of batter with a spatula, and stacking them on a plate. People slowly pour from the tents and ven­ture toward the smell of food.

After breakfast, you walk a ways down a dirt road, where the swim­ming hole boasts the shimmering reflection of a mid-September sky. Some kids wade in the water, while others spring from rope tied to lean­ing trees at the bank. A few perch at the bank, pressing their bare toes into the sediment.

Later, you’ll all sit around the fire and eat homemade chili, watch the sun melt between the cracks in the forest, listen to the natural hush and the skilled strum of Emerson on guitar. Some venture into the woods with flashlights that dot the path, hollering and laughing; oth­ers squeeze around the fire to sip hot chocolate, toast marshmallows, and play “mafia.”

Finally, in the black hours of the morning, with faces lightly toasted by the fire, everyone crawls into their tent with leaves, dreams, and expectation for tomorrow’s adven­tures swirling above their heads.

New Club Helps Gain Connections in Professional Sports Industry

New Club Sports IndustryThe Sports Studies Club is    the newest Club at Monmouth University, and we hope that it will provide a great benefit to the entire student body. The club plans to give Monmouth University students the ability to gain insight in the highly competitive sports industry.

Formed in the Spring of last year, the main goal of our club is to help sports interested students gain networking connections in professional sports and allow them to garner internships with professional sports organizations in the Tri-State area.

We are proud to announce this upcoming school year we are planning on partnering with organizations and personnel from the National Basketball Association (NBA), Major League Baseball (MLB), National Football League (NFL), National Hockey League (NHL), and the Major League Soccer (MLS).

Our specific plans involve having professional sports organizations arrange panels at Monmouth University to speak about their internship programs and plan trips to these sports team’s stadiums for private tours and meetings with front office personnel. Another idea is to set up is a speaker series where we will have sports industry professionals speak at our club meetings to members about their current occupations, how they started their career and if they have any tips for college students who are interested in working in similar sports related fields.
