Sometimes you have a problem and need someone to talk to.
When Lourdes Kincaid was growing up in Ecuador, she was the kind of girl who brought home hurt animals to nurse back to health and who was ready to help whenever a family member was sick. “My parents always said I’d grow up to be a doctor, a nurse, or a vet,” she said.
You expect to find advanced medical simulation technology at a premier research center like the University of Michigan. But you will find similar technology a few miles away in specially equipped classrooms at WCC.
Summertime is one of the best times to enjoy the WCC campus, and you don’t have to be a student to participate in a number of fun activities.
Helping others help themselves. Community service is all about extending a hand to benefit our community and the institutions that support it. That is what WCC students will be doing in droves this spring and summer as they spread out far and wide to raise money, awareness, and spirits.
“Batterrrrr UP!” That undeniable cry of summer, absent from the grounds of WCC since 2006, returns to campus this spring when a restored and expanded fresh air sports venue opens for students.
In March, the United Methodist Retirement Communities will partner with WCC to provide basic nursing assistant skills training to residents of Chelsea and surrounding communities. Classes for the three-week program begin March 15, and a mandatory orientation will be held March 8.
So the holidays are over and maybe you overindulged a bit (or a lot) and perhaps your New Year’s resolution is to get healthier (again).
For some WCC students, Welcome Day in September is their first introduction to life on campus. Usually held shortly after classes begin, Welcome Day showcases a host of activities on campus that are open to everyone. A Welcome Day for Winter Semester will be held Wednesday, Jan. 27.
