Student Success Day

Raz the Raider, mascot, handed out reminders to promote Student Success Day on the Brainerd campus of Central Lakes College. The campuses of Central Lakes College on Wed., Sept. 28 will observe the third annual Student Success Day. This day is dedicated to all CLC students as a means to enrich and otherwise add to each student's livelihood and practical knowledge base. Dozens of 45-minute seminars are packed into the day in which only classes meeting at 3 p.m. or later are still being held. Otherwise, courses do not meet. Instead, students may enjoy sessions that include topics such as developing an environmentally friendly lifestyle, note-taking tips, cardio kick-boxing, yoga, money management and low-budget living, test-taking strategies, cyber smarts, auto maintenance, tolerance and diversity, and parenting. Keynote speaker is Marc Elliot, whose topic is "What Makes You Tic?" with a message of tolerance. Those attending his one-hour talk receive a free lunch. The grand prize on each campus is a Samsung Galaxy Tablet valued at about $350. The last part of the day offers recreation and friendly competition in dodgeball, paintball, Minute to Win It, and a talent show.
