We are responsible for organizing all the events involved in Homecoming and Yofest. Homecoming is a very big deal for us because it shows the campus community that we care! We can also earn up to $600 that we put towards charitable programs like Angel Tree.
We are the Recruitment Committee! We recruit people to come to Appalachian and the College of Education through open houses. We plan different events for possible future students to look at the college of education and learn more about it.
Outreach is a great opportunity for volunteers to spend time with students of a variety of ages. Schools bring students to our campus to expose them to the idea of college and how college life works. Volunteers get to tour campus with students, take part in question and answer panels, and really connect with students. One of the most popular parts of our tours are the Science Presentations of Jeff Goodman, a faculty member of the ASU College of Education. Check out this video of Jeff Goodman to see some great parts of his presentation.
If you are interested in taking part in outreach, check out our events on Appsync. This is where you can see upcoming events and sign up to be a part of them.
We plan Fall activities for the club, including creating a stop for Boone Boo trick or treaters!
Shining Light/Relay for Life Committee
Fall semester we host a Shinning Light party for families around the area who need a little extra help around the holidays. We organize the sponsoring of children to help buy them presents and then we put on a party for all the kids. In the spring we are in charge of setting up a relay for life team. We raise money for cancer by walking around duck pond field all night.
Social Justice Committee
The purpose of the Social Justice Committee is to provide our App Educators with knowledge about the diversity that they will encounter in their classrooms. Also to help App Educators to be able to have an open mind about the various population that they will use in their everyday lives! In the Spring we host a Social Justice Summit and host high schoolers on campus.
As Social Committee, we are here to get everyone together to make new and exciting memories! Stress is dropped at the door when you come to our events to simply kick back, relax, and have fun with your friends! We try to plan at least one event every month so make sure you look for them and come whenever you can! Have an idea you want to share? We are open to all ideas that you may have so feel free to contact us.
Public Relations Committee
We document by video and/or pictures all App Ed events. We make sure all App Educators are in good communication by managing our social media and spreading the word!
Fundraising and T-Shirt Committee
We keep our money in check. Because you know it's SO important! Our funds go a long way and the fundraising activities we do would not be such a success without YOU! Be sure to let us know if you would like to buy or sell anything.
Diverse Abilities Committee
We work with Special Olympic athletes and plan a special Valentine's Dance for them on campus! We also work closely with the Scholars with Diverse Abilities program (SDAP) on campus and sponsor a Spread the Word to End the Word campaign.
This committee keeps members up to date on policy and legislation that influnces the teaching profession.
