November 2015 – Leadership Council collect donations in the wake of the Paris attacks.

Last November, CENet celebrated the end of the semester by renting all of the lanes at The Alley, the beloved Hillsborough Street bowling alley which closed its doors this past weekend.

After raising $150 for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the Leadership Team has continued the tradition of celebrating with service!

Last night, crafting met culture as students from around the world sat down to create cards to donate to local ill children. The exchange of greeting cards has become a unique part of American culture, especially in the last 6 weeks of the calendar year when over 2 billion cards are sent each year.

CENet students took a break from the stress of exams and essays to share some pizza and perspective. Although crafting a greeting card may be a simple task for our creative Wolfpack, the activity was both relaxing and rewarding. We are so happy to be able to send 72 holiday greeting cards to Zach’s Toy Chest this season.
