The College of Arts and Letters (CAL) has established itself as one of the most prestigious college councils on campus. In addition to their students’ drive for academic success, CAL is also initiating programs to promote active campus involvement from their students. There are over fifteen organizations that make up the representation of the College of Arts and Letters Council. The President, Kevin Hancock, and his executive team has developed some great goals and plans for the year so every student is eager to watch the goals grow into reality.
The first initiative produced by the College of Arts and Letters is there One Love campaign. This requires over 250 hours of community service from the college and also requires students to participate in Aztecs Rock Hunger as well as CAL’s annual clothing drive. These service events provide students the opportunity to give back to the community. In correlation with community service, the College of Arts and Letters is continuing to reinforce the sustainability pledge. This pledge reinforces the concept of sustainability as an essential element of the average student’s life and core value that CAL is striving to improve on.
Along with demanding more of its students, the College of Arts and Letters also gives back to the students and faculty that put in the effort to make CAL the outstanding college it is. This year, CAL will be holding its 2nd annual awards ceremony in the spring. The awards ceremony recognizes the tremendous effort demonstrated by students and faculty on a daily basis. In addition to the awards ceremony, CAL Alumni will also be able give two scholarships this academic year.
I think it’s safe to say that CAL is making big moves for this coming school year and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them take College Council of the Year at the Aztec Achievement Awards.
