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

This fall, we made sure to have a mentor program in place for freshman students who were interested in Human Environmental Science majors. We also focused on recruitment to increase our chapter size and participation.

In the spring, we continued on with the mentor program and got feedback from it. We also taught members how to give a Kids N' Careers presentation to middle schools and a few of them were able to do so.

3. Tentative plans for next year

While we are trying to reconstruct the structure of this organization, we noted what our members wanted more of. Our meetings throughout the year will focus on scholarship opportunity and academic endeavors, research opportunities, networking, and service. We plan on having one service opportunity per month in which the members can interact with the community at the boys and girls club, food banks, and habitat for humanity. We hope to create a stronger bond between the members by planning socials and study times so that as leaders we may share ideas to help each other be more successful. The mentorship program will stay in place and we will continue to work on recruitment during HES week and tabling events. Before initiation in September, we plan on providing students with adequate information about the organization. After initiation, we will have a booklet for new members to understand procedures, expectations, and KON benefits. In order to keep the leadership strong, we will create a stronger election process in which we will prepare the officers before they are turned over into their positions. We are excited to start a new school year with these ideas and ambitions.
