Hi, my name is Gillian Ventura, and I am partners with Caitlyn Kunkle for our Capstone project. We are hosting a “Mental
Health Free Night of Passion and Relief” Talent Show at 7:00pm on April 14th in the CPAC. We are showcasing our talented students to the audience, along with having a discussion on mental health and
how it impacts our community. We are looking for students to sign up and take part in performing on the CPAC Stage.
This event will go on for about an hour and a half, so please come out and support! If you are interested in performing any passion or talent of yours,
please email me at!

Did you know that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish by weight?! I hope that this, along with some fun service hours, grabs your attention!

I would like to invite anyone interested or wanting to get some extra service hours by coming with me (Liselotte) for a clean-up to support our earth AND my capstone! My capstone has everything to do with plastic pollution in our environment, and I think that it will be a lot of fun to pick up plastic debris with cookies, food, & friends.

The dates & times are:

April 7 –> 9-10:30 am

April 14 –> 9-10:30 am

I will also have some prizes at the end to help you out with your green thumb! 😉

If you are interested, please email me by THIS FRIDAY at: for more information on where to park, what to bring, etc.

As Summer Break draws nearer and nearer, one of our favorite activities is traveling. In fact, my Capstone is associated with my interest in travel through the experiences I had when I went to Ghana in 2014. April 1st until April 5th, I will be hosting a coin drive on campus as an advisory competition. In each advisory, there will be a jar where I will be accepting spare change (as well as cash if you would like). Whichever advisory donates the most money will receive FREE ADVISORY BREAKFAST.

The money will be given to a Ghanaian college student named Samuel Segla. He is starting a motivational speaking business in Ghana meant to inspire high school and college student. The funds that are raised will go towards the production of a website so he can more easily communicate with schools all across Ghana

If you have any more questions about my Capstone or Samuel Segla, feel free to e-mail me.

Hey guys! My name is Clara Kinken and I am looking for volunteers for my Capstone!

Hello fellow cougars,

My name is Andrew Aldous. I’m a senior and I am hosting a book drive for my capstone. The book drive is to support my Eagle Project which were free community libraries at 3 public elementary schools.

I am in need of book donations for children 4-11 years old. The drive will be from March 25th to April 5th. There will be 3 donation bins setup and clearly marked around the school.  So clean out any old book shelves you have and I look forward to your support.

For our biorex, we are doing three small experiments on dogs to determine if they are left or right-pawed. The experiments will be putting tape on their nose, retrieving a treat from a kong/dog toy, and placing a treat under a chair for them to get. If you would like to volunteer your dog, we will be meeting on April 7th at 11am in front of the softball field (right next to sophomore parking). The treats provided will be free of most common dog allergies. If you are able to come, please fill out this form to make it a quicker and easier process for both you and for us!!

Thank you, Renee Boisvert and Lia Carnes
