Vandal EDGE is a first year program to help you engage in the Vandal community and develop strong academic habits. Bulletin boards are regularly updated announcing upcoming events and opportunities.
Students are encouraged to complete the following tasks:
- Cultural Events: Campus or community events that provide students an opportunity to expand their knowledge of current events, topics of academic and societal interests, appreciate the fine arts, or observe cultural traditions and values.
- Organization/Involvement: Involvement should consist of active participation in cam
pus or community organizations, research with faculty or staff, intramural, ROTC, University sanctioned sport or large service events (i.e., ASB trip)
- Social Justice: Campus or community events that unite around, educate about, and advocate against social injustices that affect our campus, local, national, and global communities.
Proof of participation will be necessary for you to complete these tasks. Proof is as easy as you taking selfie at events or in a club or organization activity. Ticket stubs, event programs and handouts also qualify as proof.
As you complete these three tasks, check in with your RA to tell them about your experiences to ensure that you receive credit.
