RSU Students with Children Can Now Relax
By student Kyle Olson
It is almost a necessity in this day to have a degree in order to get a career. Rogers State University offers a wide variety of degree and great ways to kick start your career. So, what if your only set back to getting a degree is that fact that you have a responsibility as a parent.
That all changed when the RSU Kiddy College was up started at the Claremore campus of RSU. Students, faculty members, and anyone else could have a place to send their child and know they will be in great hands. After a while, the Kiddy College started deteriorating a bit. That is when the PSI CHI Honor Society stepped in and made the facility way more decorative.
Setting up many donation drives, PSI CHI raised nearly $15,000 for the renovation process. Dr. Kevin Woller was there for the first donation to the last stroke of fresh paint. "After raising the money we all chipped in and repainted, re-carpeted, and made the facility go from a one-star to a two-star center,” he said.
The facility benefits many parents, including Lindsay Briggs. "I was so excited when they remodeled the facility, you could tell my daughter was having a much better time, because the atmosphere became friendlier,” Lindsay says.
No longer the Kid Center, now the Child Development Center, it is refreshed, revamped, and ready to help out anyone who needs there services. Dr. Woller is very proud of PSI CHI’s achievement. "I love looking over at the Child Development Center and knowing that PSI CHI had contributed everything into making it was it is today.”
