bicycling and healthy lifestyles. Students
enrolled in Engebretsen‟s 2011 Leadership
Development class continue to work toward the
goal of increasing biking on campus and in the
community, as a means of promoting health
and environmental benefits. This spring, in
conjunction with Earth Day activities,
Engebretsen‟s students instituted a Green Bike
Patrol who gave out wristbands imprinted with
this year‟s theme ‘Burn Calories- Not Gas‟ to
everyone they witness riding a bicycle. They
continue to „catch‟ bicyclist these last few days
of classes.

    Students enrolled in Lifespan Development
   under the direction of Jean Karlen worked with
   community partners to provide assistance for
   newly developed programs at the Wayne
   Community Activity Center. In addition, some
   students facilitated a town and gown opportunity
   at Elderfest. Students were able to visit with
   community members and assit them in a variety
   of ways.
An Elderfest Volunteer made a comment to the effect - that so many
   times the stereotypes of college students are not very good but
   those students working the Elderfest were great....I know there
   are many more like them at WSC. This person went on to note
   that it was a pleasure working with the students- “they were
   great helpers.”
