With the help of ZPN and UA Adult Learners, Adult Focus is holding a food drive to help our neediest students through the holidays.

Many of us do not realize that we have students here who may be living in their cars, who do not have adequate winter clothing and who have children who count on them for food and shelter.

With the help of the Office of Student Financial Aid, we will identify those in dire need this season. Please help by bringing non-perishable food items to Carroll Hall 55.

Slackline at the Climbing Wall; come “walk the line!” Dec. 9 - May 11
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Slacklining is a dynamic balance sport that puts a new twist into tight rope walking.

Besides being incredibly fun, walking on webbing was used for a new type of concentration and balance exercise. Some people use it for meditation or to bring their balance and concentration to a new level for performance in any sport. Others just find it relaxing yet exciting as a sport itself.

We will have a slackline set up at the climbing wall Thursday nights from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for anyone who would like to try it out. No experience necessary.

Any questions, please call 330-972-8636
