ASAP Kicks Off Fall Term by Volunteering at the Red Wolf Sanctuary

After spending the first week of fall term in class, ASAP students were excited to spend their first Friday of the term outdoors at the Red Wolf Sanctuary in Rising Sun! The students are pictured with Paul Strasser, who founded the Sanctuary in 1979. ASAP spent the day clearing trails of brush and debris for the upcoming 5K fundraiser hosted by the Sanctuary. The non-profit sanctuary relies on monetary donations to maintain their facility and care for the animals there. Interested in touring? Contact the Sanctuary at (812) 438-2306.

Study Session Over Lunch

Ben, Logan, Cara, Josh, Rachel, and Zachery spending their lunch break studying for an upcoming Ethics test. Group study sessions before tests are just one perk of attending classes as a cohort. Discussing topics as a group helps prepare for written exam questions where you will need to articulate an answer in your own words.
