Students Raise Awareness for D-Squared

Students working with D-Squared will be in A&S until 4:00pm to provide information about the organization’s services.

By Megan Kelly

On Wednesday, April 8, four Georgian Court University Digital Communication students will be set up in the lobby of the A&S, in order to provide students and faculty with information about a local non-profit organization, D-Squared. They are providing free baked goods, promotional bracelets, and information on the organization, while encouraging donations of any size. While donations are always appreciated, the primary goal is to get information out about D-Squared and the service that they provide.

What they Do

D-Squared is a local nonprofit organization that provides cost-free, emergency transportation to 18-27 year-olds in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Founded by Karen and Stephan Dushnick in March 2014, after the fatal vehicular accident took the lives of their two sons, Stephan and Michael, D-Squared was created to give young adults a judgment-free, safe ride home.

Students Getting Involved

This semester, Dr. Gina Marcello is instructing CM465, Digital Communication Professional Practice. In this course, students are working in small groups with local businesses, in order to help them develop different aspects of communication, marketing, and community outreach. One of these groups has been working with D-Squared, in order to help promote the organization before the summer months begin.

To learn more about D-Squared and upcoming events please find D-Squared on Facebook and check out their website http://www.d-squared.org/.

National Catholic Sisters Week Celebration

By Megan Kelly

This past November, four Georgian Court students took part in the interviews of six different Sisters of Mercy from the Mid-Atlantic region. These interviews were conducted as a part of Saint Catherine University’s National Catholic Sister Week, a campaign that brings awareness to the lives of Catholic Sisters. The interviews were recorded and transcribed, in order to be included in an international online database.

Highlighting Mercy

In order to continue with this effort, Georgian Court will be hosting a dinner with a number of Sisters of Mercy that select students will be invited to attend. This dinner will include a panel made up of these students and sisters, who will be recounting their personal experiences with the project.

 

The dinner will take place this Friday, March 13, to coincide with this year’s National Catholic Sisters Week.
