One Student's Journey to Jamaica
Diana Foronda '17 was among the students who took part in the Jamaica Cultural Immersion Program during Hollins' Spring Break this year. In this video, she captures her experiences while engaging in a variety of community-based service projects in the town of Lucea on Jamaica's northwest coast. Since 1988, Hollins has organized a mini Peace Corps project to an impoverished community in Jamaica. Students teach in local schools, serve in the local infirmary, refurbish community buildings, and work with children in a recreational capacity. Learn more at www.hollins.edu/jamaica-immersion.
Battle of the Bins 2015
At Battle of the Bins, students compete to see who can design the most creative and aesthetically pleasing eco-themed recycling bins. Students paint as teams or by themselves, and a panel of judges awards cash prizes to the top three bins in each category (Most Humorous, Most Effective Message, Most Artistic). Now in its 11th year, Battle of the Bins began in the fall of 2005 when Roanoke County established its first public recycling drop-off site at Hollins. At the same time, the county placed 75 hard-plastic, 48-gallon containers on campus for use by students, faculty, and staff to collect recyclables. Two Hollins students came up with the idea for a bin painting contest to help celebrate the recycling initiative and since that time the event has been held annually to coincide with the start of the new academic year.
