A common misconception about working out is that it is simply for looks. Exercise has far greater benefits than what meets the eye and Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) is trying to get this message across loud and clear. Studies have shown that students who get involved in exercise actually tend to have better grades as a result.

"What many students don't realize is that exercising can really help boost your life in all aspects such as school, health and even interpersonal relationships," said Lyle Bartelt, Manager of Fitness and Wellness at EMCC.

Teaching Educators What it Means to Care

How many teachers have put on a film, or told students to open a book and read instead of working with them and encouraging them? While there are some inspirational, courageous teachers out there worthy of a Hilary Swank Freedom Writers title, there are not enough. 

According to Census.Gov there are 77 million children enrolled in the United States alone. This means 27 percent of our population's future and education depend on its teachers. However, student action has been taken to put quality back into teaching thanks to the Future Teachers of America Club (FTC).

Catwalk on Campus

Fashion Show at EMCC

Fashion is something that has been a part of our culture for thousands of years. In the 1800s, it was petticoats and ball gowns; in the 1920s it was red lipstick and flapper dresses. Society is obsessed with looks, beauty, and the clothes people have on their backs.

Some people go a bit too far (like wearing a dress made of meat), but if it gets the attention of anyone who matters in the fashion world, it is considered a score. Whatever is considered “fashionable” can take time to come into popularity, but it can also change drastically within the course of a few days.
