Weinberg First Year Students - Applications are due April 7, 2015! Don't miss the oppornity to grow intellectually, to learn more about the world, to belong to an intimate group of dedicated and lively students, and to make the world a somewhat better place through your collective efforts.
Brady Sophomores gathered on Saturday, March 15 to hear fellow Scholars present issues that they would like to address in the Senior Project. Of the four topics presented, two were selected for further examination: Nutrition and Education; and Mentoring Students from Evanston Township High School. One of these topics will be chosen after additional research is completed Spring Quarter.
Brady Juniors continue to examine the ways that Evanston assists young adults with cognitive disabilities, the issue this class will focus upon for the Senior Project. On March 12, students visited the Center for Independent Futures in Evanston, and reflected on their meeting immediately following. Earlier this year, they visited a transition house which helps Evanston Township High School graduates learn life skills.
Seniors have completed their project work after a very successful partnership with a community group called Our House, a transitional housing project envisioned by some of the team members at Curt’s Café, a non-profit organization that provides training in food service and life skills for at risk youth in Evanston. Brady Seniors assisted in the development of the new Our House website, hosted a campus-wide movie screening of The Homestretch, and brought together students and professors from across the University for a conversation about the impact of structural issues on youth homelessness. Congratulations Brady Class of 2015!
