Getting involved in school activities can help make students’ experience more meaningful
While academics and job training are the core priorities at the Harris School of Business, many students also find that getting involved in social activities helps them feel like part of a school community. The Student Council is an organization that plans a number of events throughout the year that help students get to know one another and take a short break from the pressure of the classroom.
By holding fundraisers throughout the year, the student council can raise money for a larger event such as a free hot lunch, or a free water ice day to celebrate the hard work that students are doing. Some of the popular Student Council events are:
- Soft pretzel sales
- 50/50 raffles
- Water ice days
- Wear your favorite scrubs days
- Bake sales
- Show your Phillies spirit days
- Cinco de Mayo day
- Holiday door decoration contests
- Food and clothing drives for charities
- Activities to help support fellow students in need
- Covered dish lunches
- Hoagie days
Jackie Emerson, a student in the Multi-Skilled Health Technician program, is the president of the Student Council at the Voorhees campus. She says, “One of the great things about the Harris School is the sense of community that you can feel as a student here. Being on the Student Council has been a lot of fun. We meet once a week, and the students seem to enjoy the activities we plan. It’s my way of giving back and showing that I care about the school.”
The Harris School of Business wishes to thank the student leaders who give their time and energy to holding these events, which improve the school experience for all of our students.
The Harris School of Business operates eight campuses throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Connecticut. Its core programs include medical assistant training, dental assistant training, medical billing and coding training, and other career-focused programs in the fields of allied health and business management.
