Lunch Buddies: Rogers State University faculty, staff and students have lunch with Claremont Elementary students to encourage them to focus on their studies and prepare for college on the first and last Tuesday of every month.
I was partnered with an amazing 8 year old boy named Joe. We talked about four-wheelers, sports, and his family, among other things. Joe is very interested in reading and told me about some of the books that he has read. He also told me that he likes coffee quite a bit, but his mom disapproves of his drinking it. He is a very nice kid and I really enjoyed spending his lunch break with him! – Sam Baird, RSU Student
Reading Day: RSU faculty, staff and students read to a classroom or group of kids on the first and last Thursday of every month.
I really enjoyed reading to the kids at Claremont. Having the opportunity to give back to the kids, means a lot to me and our University. The kids at Claremont were awesome! They are going to make great Hillcats someday! – Derek Larkin, Head Men’s and Women’s Soccer Coach
