ROYAL FAMILY STRONG

Our community and neighboring cities have experienced unspeakable tragedy on different fronts the past few days. We are deeply saddened and stand with those impacted. Our Royal Family itself has deep connections to these events and we will rally together and support each other and those in need. The coming days and weeks will be difficult, but Royal will do its part to help those we love. #RoyalLife is first and foremost about Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with so many at this moment. More info to come as we return to work this week.

HOLIDAY BOUTIQUE SALE FUNDRAISER

With the help of our ASB Clerk Ashley Rotellini, our Leadership class has planned a Holiday Boutique Sale Fundraiser for Saturday November 17th at Knolls Station. While this was originally an event to support our Leadership class, we have decided to dedicate all funds raised (and any donations collected) to support victims of the Borderline shooting and the recent local wildfires. Please consider supporting this event for holiday items and to help support our neighbors in need. For questions, please click and email Ms. Rotellini (above).

COLLEGE OF THE WEEK

Each week, Royal will provide insight into unique college options for students & families. Our source is the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2019 - an annual comprehensive catalog of diverse universities here in California and nationwide.


THIS WEEK: ECKERD COLLEGE

Click here for Admissions Info

Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info

Enrollment: 1,738

Acceptance Rate: 73%


DETAILS: Attending Eckerd College demands a special sort of willpower. Why? In the words of an international business major: “We are right on the water, and it is like going to college in a resort.” With free canoes, kayaks, boats, coolers, and tents always available for student use, it’s a wonder anyone finds time to study. But study they do, as administrators continue to lure capable students to Eckerd with small classes, skilled professors, and a thriving social scene. “Few schools are located right on the beach,” says a sophomore. “It’s Eckerd’s paradise-like setting that seals the deal for most prospective students.”


Autumn Term, Eckerd’s version of freshman orientation, is a three-week term before the regular fall semester that introduces new students to the academic expectations and social responsibilities of the Eckerd community. First-years also take a yearlong course called Human Experience, which focuses on topics like justice, power, freedom, and global citizenship, and all students must meet composition, foreign language, information technology, oral communication, and quantitative skills requirements. Also required are one course in each of the four academic areas—arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences—plus one course each in environmental and global perspectives. The capstone senior seminar, organized around the theme “Imagining Justice,” asks students to draw on what they’ve learned during college to find solutions to important issues. Seniors present their capstone work at a festival in the spring. All students are also expected to complete at least 40 hours of community service before graduation; service opportunities are built into reflective service-learning courses that are offered in every major.

EC Student Perspective: “Although the classes are intellectually stimulating, engaging, and challenging, there is not too much competition among the students.”
