The Music Therapy club at Marywood University made Fun Friday a lot more fun for Sarah and Felicity! The young women enjoyed listening to the music and singing along. We are looking forward to friendships and musical collaborations that will evolve from this wonderful event.

This week, SOAR students are learning about supervisor evaluations, especially about how to take constructive criticism well. Difficult lessons for anyone! During break today, this was put into practical application when one first-year student had to put away a laptop early. Another student, a second-year student, stepped in for comfort and inspiration. "Try to let your disappointment go," and "Think of how your favorite TV hero would rise to the occasion," he advised. It's wonderful to see lessons taking fruit, and students mentoring each other in SOAR!

Connor and Sean work in the parts department in the maintenance building. They walked in recently and were asked if they could do a rush inventory of the belts. George and Jeff, the two Marywood parts room employees, needed a count ASAP so they could call it in that day. The men hustled through the job and were able to meet the deadline! Good work, men!
