Doing Good In & Out of Rosemont College

 

Hello Readers,

rosemont.college.ravens.rallyThis week at Rosemont we held our Raven Madness Night, which is a pep-rally for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Aside from getting students and athletes excited about the basketball season, it’s also a great opportunity to raise money for the Rosemont Service Immersion trips.  We also collected canned goods for the Saint Francis Inn located in Philadelphia.

The Rosemont Service Immersion trips, which are run by the Rosemont Campus Ministry, are when students from our school travel to a part of the world in need and assist them in any way possible. This year some of the Service Immersion teams are headed to Puerto Rico and Alabama & Louisiana to volunteer their time.


The other cause was for the Saint Francis Inn, which is a place for the homeless men, women, and children in our area.  It is a place they can go for food, shelter, and clothing. It operates mainly from donations and Rosemont is always willing to help! This year we donated a lot of canned goods and other non-perishable items, thanks to the Raven Madness night!


Raven Madness night was a lot of fun. The R.S.A.A.C. team hosted the event and gave out a lot of great prizes. Some of those prizes included brand new Nike sneakers, and $100. Other prizes were things that Rosemont College donated for the occasion.

The night was just one of many events that Rosemont College offers for students to go out and spend time away from the books. Rosemont College is the power of small where you can always find something for you. If there is something you are interested in doing that isn’t already planned contact the Rosemont Activity Counsel (RAC) who will work with you in planning something new. They are always open to new ideas!

The Ravens Madness night was a great night! Being able to support our athletes while also helping two great causes was an added bonus! If you did not attend the event I hope to see you at our next R.S.A.A.C. activity. If you have any questions or comments email me at mmanning@rosemont.edu. GO RAVENS!!!


Tips to Balance Being a Student and An Athlete

 

rosemont college lacrosse fieldWelcome back readers! This semester I will focus on useful tips for an in-season athlete, as the lacrosse season is underway! The Lacrosse season started on the twentieth of January and I’m just settling in to my busy schedule. This could be a lot for anyone to take on but after a couple years of it you learn the tricks of the trade.

The first key point you want to do is look at your practice schedule and your game schedule.  Bring a copy with you to your advisor’s office when you sit down with them to pick classes. Find classes that work best with your practice schedule and try to avoid conflict with as many games as you can. The athletic department will give you excused absents for up to three classes in each class, but trust me you don’t want to use them cause once you miss a class you do fall behind. Also, in the off season of your sport try to challenge yourself academically because this is the time to get your grades up and knock some of those difficult classes on your course requirement list. The main point of picking your classes when you’re in season is never to forget you’re here to get an education. Your coaches know that, your team knows that, and the athletic department knows that; so if you have to miss some practice or game, remember that you’re a student first. They don’t call us student athletes for no reason.

If you have any question please email me at mmanning@rosemont.edu and feel free to share this blog on Facebook or Twitter. Thanks and GO RAVENS!!!!
