Student Leaders in Education Attract New Students at Spring Activities Fair
Student leaders from around the UMN-TC campus gathered in the Great Hall in Coffman Union for the Spring Activities Fair attracting interested students to learn more about their respective organizations. DirecTrack to Teaching and the Education Minnesota Student Chapter were each represented at the Fair. Nearly 30 students signed up to learn information about both organizations.
Shawna Zielinski, Co-President of the EDMN Student Chapter and a DirecTrack to Teaching Student Advisory Board member gave her highlights for the day "The annual Spring Activities Fair was an exciting opportunity to represent and exhibit both our DirecTrack to Teaching program (put on by its new Student Advisory Board) as well as our newly-formed Education Minnesota Student Chapter to hundreds of students in the University community. Seven student leaders in these groups, including myself, were in Coffman Memorial Union's Great Hall throughout the day Tuesday to talk to students about our programs and what they are doing for our future teachers here at the University of Minnesota. Highlights included several conversations with interested students who signed up for our mailing lists, and of course a visit from DirecTrack's Program Lead, Shuji Asai who was kind enough to buy us all lunch!"
