Student Life to host a fun-filled week

By Monica Suarez

Interested in rock climbing, tug of war or slushies?

If you’re a North Campus student, you will soon have your fix.

The activities will take place from Aug. 25 through Sept. 1 at Miami Dade College’s North Campus during Shark Pride Week— a week dedicated to school spirit.

“The students are in for a treat,” said Danyelle Carter, student government association public relations director. “Two years ago, I had a vision to make the school more spirited and thought a week-long of events would be amazing. This is the second annual ‘Shark Pride Week,’ and I must say we are kicking it up several notches so that the students can see how much the campuses appreciate the students.”

Many new students entering the North Campus have no idea where their classes are located, where to get an MDC student identification card or where to purchase textbooks. North Campus Student Life Director Jaime Anzalotta, said “Shark Pride Week” gives incoming freshmen an opportunity to get acquainted with the North Campus.

“This week was planned to welcome all students and let them know that we are here to cater to their needs,” Anzalotta said. “It’s a great opportunity for students to become engaged and see that college can be a good place to get involved.”
