My husband teases me because I get so proud of students I've never even met. This morning, he had plenty of reason to mock me: I read the most lovely article describing the Eckerd College Rescue Team, as reported in the Tampa Bay Times.
One of the reasons I started the Campus Highlight feature is because of the way the media often portrays college students in a negative light. And yet, in reality, college students are doing amazing -- and often unsung -- things each and every day. The Eckerd College Rescue Team, for example, comprises Eckerd College (St. Petersburg, FL) students and, quite literally, saves lives through their efforts. What a wonderful example of how college students really can -- and do -- change the world. I'm proud of you guys! Keep up the great work.
(Each Monday during the academic year, I feature a "Campus Highlight": a unique, interesting, and noteworthy student organization, program, or initiative that demonstrates the amazing things college students do each and every day across the country.)
