The alumni reunion, first held in 1918, brings back alumni from the Northwest School of Agriculture, a residential high school located on what is now the University of Minnesota, Crookston campus. The NWSA opened its doors in 1906 and graduated its first class of 8 students in 1909. The campus educated students for 60 years, and during its last two years of operation, the campus transitioned to a two-year technical college, known as the University of Minnesota Technical Institute. In 1993, the campus transitioned yet again as the University of Minnesota, Crookston and began to offer baccalaureate degrees becoming the first-ever laptop university in the nation.

HigherEdCommServHonorRoll.jpgThe University of Minnesota, Crookston has been named to the 2010 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).  This is the fourth time the campus has earned the honor.  To be named to the Honor Roll, a school must demonstrate that its students, faculty, and staff are engaged in meaningful service that achieves measurable results in the community.  This national level honor recognizes a college or university for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement.

 

The CNCS, which has administered the Honor Roll since 2006, has recognized more than 600 colleges and universities for exemplary, innovative, and effective community service programs.  It named 511 colleges and universities to the Community Service Honor Roll for 2010.  For a full list of recipients and descriptions of their service, visit www.NationalService.gov/HonorRoll.

 

Honorees are chosen based on a series of selection factors, including the scope and innovation of service projects, the extent to which service-learning is embedded in the curriculum, the school's commitment to long-term campus-community partnerships, and measurable community outcomes as a result of service.

 

At the U of M, Crookston in 2010, students tallied over 8,400 hours of service learning through their academic courses and nearly 9,500 hours of community service on their campus, in Crookston and their local communities, and across the country.   Additionally, the campus continued a commitment to designate 10 work study students in the community to serve as America Reads tutors at Crookston's Washington Elementary School, Highland School, and Our Savior's Lutheran Day School. 

 

Lisa Loegering, assistant director of service learning at the U of M, Crookston, confirms the positive influence on students who get involved in service projects, "Our students who choose to get involved with their community through service-learning and community service not only feel more connected to their community but also have a better context for the material they learn within the classroom."  Service-learning courses are found across all departments, and each of the nearly 40 student clubs and organizations strives to complete two service projects per semester.

 

"As members of the class of 2011 cross the stage to pick up their diplomas, more and more will be going into the world with a commitment to public service and the knowledge that they can make a difference in their communities and their own lives through service to others, thanks to the leadership of these institutions," said Patrick A. Corvington, chief executive officer of CNCS.  "Congratulations to the University of Minnesota, Crookston and its students for their dedication to service and commitment to improving their local communities.  We salute all the Honor Roll awardees for embracing their civic mission and providing opportunities for their students to tackle tough national challenges through service."

 

The Corporation for National and Community Service is a federal agency that engages more than five million Americans in service through its Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America programs, and leads President Barack Obama's national call to service initiative, United We Serve.   The agency is a strong partner with the nation's colleges and universities in supporting community service and service-learning.  CNCS oversees the Honor Roll in collaboration with the U.S. Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development, Campus Compact, and the American Council on Education.

Eighteen members of the University of Minnesota, Crookston Natural Resources Club treeplanting.jpgalong with several natural resources faculty and staff members returned to the Little Cutfoot Sioux region of the Chippewa National Forest the weekend of April 30-May 1 for the 29th consecutive tree planting trip for the U.S. Forest Service.  The Crookston Crew, as they've come to be known by Forest Service personnel, planted 4,500 red pine seedlings on a clearcut area near Talmoon, Minn.

Phil Baird, associate professor in the Agriculture and Natural Resources Department knows the impact of these trips on students. "This is something students will remember for the rest of their lives," says Baird."Each year we have a number of alumni returning to join us from across the region and country. It's hard to believe that the club first hoisted their dibble bars on the Chippewa more than 12 years before this year's incoming freshman class was born!"

treeplanting2.jpgThe crew was joined by former students from Washington and Wisconsin who couldn't pass up another shot at this rite of spring for the club. The club returns to the forest each spring to plant trees and again each fall to budcap some of their younger plantings to protect the seedlings from deer browsing.

smith_dustin.jpgThe 82nd annual Minnesota State FFA Convention brought more than 3,000 high school students to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus in early May. One of the items of business on the convention agenda was the election of state officers for 2011-12. Dustin Smith, a sophomore at the U of M, Crookston, was elected as the new State Sentinel, making him one of a very small group  of students from the Crookston campus to ever hold a position as one of the state's six officers. Smith, who is from Staples, Minn., is a triple major in agricultural business, business management, and agronomy on the Crookston campus.

To be elected to an office at that level, a candidate is gauged in eight competency areas including communication, team player, areas of knowledge, organizational skills, character, passion for success, influence, and critical thinking. They must complete a detailed application and series of interviews after which a nominating committee selects the top six individuals for office. The sentinel's responsibilities include among others helping the president maintain order, meeting room preparation and caring for the emblems of each office, and keeping accurate records of members and their activities.

Smith is honored by his selection to state office, "Being elected to state office has been my goal ever since I had my first interaction with a state officer," he says. "The impact that past state officers have left on my life are my motivation for doing the best I can and being able to make a difference in the lives of FFA members will make this the most meaningful thing I've ever done."

Along with Collegiate FFA, he is also active in the Ag Business Club, Campus Crusade for Christ, North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) team, and serves as the assistant director for intramural activities on the Crookston campus.

"give2grow" was the convention theme. Students attending had opportunities to develop leadership and communication skills, gain career and agricultural knowledge, and gather new ideas from prominent agricultural leaders and fellow FFA members. The new officers and their home FFA chapters are President: Hillary Kletscher, Wabasso; Vice president: Andrew Miron, Forest Lake; Secretary: Katie McNab, Waseca; Treasurer: Tyler Warren, Litchfield; Reporter: Chelsea Vilchis, Hutchinson; and Sentinel: Dustin Smith, Staples-Motley.
