Warm Dranks, Will Dodds, Emerald Klauer, Kelsey Johnson

Ethos

Baby, it’s frickin’ cold outside. You have to bundle up to the point that you can’t move your arms down, not to mention all the times you run into an attractive person only to have your nose run like Niagra Falls. All you want to do is go home, turn on the heat full blast, cuddle underneath some blankets and watch Netflix. But what drink will you choose for this celebration of warmth? Lauren Grant, a journalism and culinary science double major, and the Wide World of Web provided a few trusty recipes for non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks ...

Frozen veggies are not only cheaper than fresh produce, they also hold the same nutritional content and have a longer shelf life (obviously). So skip the cans and grab a variety of vegetable bags from the freezer aisle. This is a must-have for every college kitchen and these recipes will help you utilize them in single-person servings.

Influence Of Parents, Peers, Internet Product Search And Visual Social Media On College Students’ Purchase Behavior: A Mixed Methods Study, Jennifer E. Johnson 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Influence Of Parents, Peers, Internet Product Search And Visual Social Media On College Students’ Purchase Behavior: A Mixed Methods Study, Jennifer E. Johnson

Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design: Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research

Visually-oriented online social networking websites (VSNS) have become frontrunners in the race for popularity among all other online social networks. Pinterest, Instagram, Wanelo, and Snapchat have allowed for consumers to share their everyday lives, as well as the products that define their personal cultures. Products that require less financial and social risk tend to not only be influenced by online social networking websites, but also by peers (Kim & Sung, 2008). Products that require more financial and social risk tend to be influenced by family members and the amount of Internet product search behavior (Drozdenko, Jensen, & Coelho, 2012). Little research has ...

School Gardens: Cultivating A Child’S Nutritional Habits, Environmental Knowledge, And Sustainability Practices, Jeffrey Meltzer 2015 Colby College

School Gardens: Cultivating A Child’S Nutritional Habits, Environmental Knowledge, And Sustainability Practices, Jeffrey Meltzer

Honors Theses

School gardens have existed since the late nineteenth century and today are becoming increasingly popular in many parts of the world, including where I studied in Maine and Australia (AUS). Multiple organizations support school gardens in Maine, including the Maine School Garden Network, which has over 125 registered school gardens. In AUS, the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation primarily supports the school garden movement and has over 800 registered school gardens. While many researchers have studied school gardens, few have compared two countries, focused on environmental sustainability, or investigated Maine in particular. This thesis combines information from literature reviews, and ...


Bootstrap Blues, Hannah M. Frantz 2014 Gettysburg College

Bootstrap Blues, Hannah M. Frantz

SURGE

Meet David*. In mid-January, he came to the small town Iowa elementary school where I work. David has attended more schools in the two years since he started school than I have in my lifetime. In fact, the school he just moved from only has four days of attendance listed on his record. David moves so often because he’s homeless. His situation is not what we may stereotypically think of as “homeless”—you wouldn’t see him on the streets or even in soup kitchens. Instead, David stays with his mother, and they couch surf from one home to ...


Family And Consumer Sciences Teacher Educator's Perception Of Integration Of Reading Skill Instruction, FREDERICK POLKINGHORNE, Sally E. Arnett-Hartwick 2014 BOWLING GREEN STATE UNIVERSITY

Family And Consumer Sciences Teacher Educator's Perception Of Integration Of Reading Skill Instruction, Frederick Polkinghorne, Sally E. Arnett-Hartwick

Online Journal for Workforce Education and Development

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine family and consumer sciences (FACS) teacher educators’ perceptions on the integration of reading skill instruction in secondary FACS courses. Background: As a result of low national reading scores and legislation, family and consumer sciences (FACS) teachers are being challenged to explicitly teach reading into course curricula but feel untrained to do so. Therefore, this demonstrates that FACS teachers know the value of literacy integration, but lack pedagogical skills too successfully and explicitly integrate literacy in the FACS curriculum. This draws attention to the preparation of FACS teachers, moreover FACS teacher educators ...

Correlations Between Parents' Academic Achievements, Emerging Adult Children's Perception Of Their Parents' Socio-Economic Status And The Educational Attainment Of The Emerging Adult Children, Iris Michelle Young-Clark

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

It has been well-documented by researchers that having a higher socio-economic status (SES) enables one to have greater access to an array of materials, goods, and services to promote or support academic achievement (Sirin, 2005). Education is stressed as the most consistent and reliable means to achievement. The investment in one's higher education benefits not only the individual but also broader society and the fundamental well-being of our nation. Given that vital educational decisions are made during the span of years characterized by adolescent becoming emerging adults, research is needed to explore the basis or association of these decisions ...

Measuring And Articulating The Value Of Community Engagement: Lessons Learned From 100 Years Of Cooperative Extension Work, Nancy K. Franz 2014 Iowa State University

Measuring And Articulating The Value Of Community Engagement: Lessons Learned From 100 Years Of Cooperative Extension Work, Nancy K. Franz

Education Publications and Papers

The Cooperative Extension System was created in 1914 with the passage of the Smith-Lever Act. The act provided resources to improve access to education by creating this nationwide organization to bring land-grant university research and resources to people where they lived and worked. Cooperative Extension was the first formal nationwide structure created for university–community engagement. Expectations for Extension as an engaged institution have changed over time. Once seen chiefly as a source of private value for program participants in local communities, Extension is now also expected to provide public value for those not directly involved in Extension programs. After ...

Exploring The Relationship Between Financial Behaviors And Financial Well-Being Of African American College Students At One Historically Black Institution, Vivian Mason Fluellen

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

College students are at an important time in their lives as they move from financial dependence to financial independence. Given this concern, motivating young adults to save is an important objective. Research on college students and their finances has focused on credit card use. The current study explored the relationship between financial social learning opportunities and financial behaviors of African American college students at one HBCU. Similar studies have been done at predominately white institutions and community colleges, but none examined 1890 historically black colleges.

The current study drew from social theory to attempt to understand saving behavior. Bandura (1977 ...

Analysis of college strategic plans was also completed to assess language related to engagement and engaged scholarship. We found why faculty, administrators, and students conduct engagement work and the challenges and opportunities of doing so. We also discovered what criteria these individuals use ...

A Pilot Study: The Use Of A Survey To Assess The Food Knowledge Of Nutrition Students At Various Levels Of Nutrition Education, Chante Chambers

Open Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

A working definition of a concept known as ‘food literacy’ encompasses using basic food preparation knowledge that has been learned, understood, and practiced to make better food decisions. To advance these skills for client service, a post-secondary nutrition program would need to include objectives that allow application of knowledge. For this reason, the purpose of this study was to determine the difference in knowledge and application among students in 100, 200 and 400 level college nutrition course(s). A survey was developed to measure the food knowledge of these college students as they prepare for careers as health care professionals ...
