Service and College
The women of Iota Kappa Pi served at the Teal Ridge Retirement Community Center through the Wings program through which the program enhances the lives of adults with functional disabilities who cannot live comfortably on their own in society.
“It was great just being able to spend time wit older people and just spend time with them and also learning from them”, said Charina Sullins, a junior in the club” “It is grand seeing young people stepping up in the community and taking care of those less fortunate because even though people may be impaired, the impaired also contribute to the community.” That is something all can learn.
Now the men of Kappa Sigma Tau will be heading out to Norman, Okla. this upcoming weekend and doing some demolition work and other kinds of physical labor at a camp up there to help with renovations going on there.
“It will be awesome to finally be to wreck something and not get in trouble for it. I mean, what guy doesn’t want to smash something and it actually being for a great cause?” said sophomore Scott Ulrich. If people are going to break something, at least it will not cause damage to anyone or anything.
Lastly the wonderful ladies of Theta Theta Theta and their service project of going to a local restaurant and writing letters to soldiers fighting all across the globe for the country’s freedom.
“It’s so great that these men and women are sacrificing their lives for our sake; I think the least we could is send them a word of encouragement and let them know that we care and support them”, said Karly Monday, a sophomore and new member of Theta Theta Theta.
People have heard “all work and no play” and think it is impossible for one to work and have fun at the same time, but students at Oklahoma Christian University are living proof that that is not necessarily true. These students have shown that service to others truly brings joy to oneself and also unites the school through kindness.
