2. Campus or community projects, activities, or events:

This past year Nu Omega collaboratively put on a March nutrition month health fair where free homemade nutritious snacks were provided to passer-bys and a mini anthropocentric assessment was offered along with a nutrition fun quiz. We were also involved in every Club Day (at the beginning of each quarter) where we made ourselves known on campus and let any interested sign-up to receive our Nu's Letter. We attended every Undergraduate Open House as well, to give advice and guidance to prospective students. Nu Omega held semi-healthy bake sales nearly every quarter where gluten-free and vegan items were available along with treats made with veggies and fresh fruit. We also did a frozen treat fundraiser made with all homemade organic ingredients. Nu Omega also participated in the Hunger Walk 2013. Both of our initiation ceremonies (in the Fall and Spring) were well attended by members (past and present) and faculty. We had the honor of having the Vice President of Academic Affairs speak at both of our ceremonies as the honored guest.

3. Tentative plans for next year

Our tentative plans for next year is to continue our Elementary Healthy Living Presentations to first graders. We plan to reach out to more schools and do it more frequently as long as our funds are sufficient. We will continue to administer our mentoring program and our scholarly Nu's Letter. We plan to be more involved in community service activities on campus such as clean-up and orientation assistance. We also will have an opportunity to work with an underprivileged group of runners and give them nutritional presentations and guidance.
