Local Students Earn Academic Honors

Dorvil Serving in Leadership Position of Assumption’s ALANA Network

The Assumption College Office of Student Activities has announced that Gemaers Dorvil, of Everett, is currently serving as president of the ALANA Network for the 2018-19 academic year.

The ALANA Network is made up of students who foster an inclusive environment and awareness of diversity among members of the entire Assumption community. ALANA educates and engages the community through events, discussions, and meetings.

Assumption offers nearly 60 clubs and organizations that provide students the opportunity to network with professionals; take on leadership roles; and apply classroom knowledge to better the community. The student-run clubs appeal to a variety of interests and include offerings such as academic clubs (psychology, neuroscience, etc.); media (College television station, literary magazine and student newspaper); athletics, and many more.

“Student involvement is an important aspect of personal and professional growth at Assumption,” said Kaitlin Bevins, director of student activities and leadership development. “Engagement in one or more of the wide array of student clubs and organizations encourages students develop their leadership skills and discover their passion. Participation outside the classroom, in community and social settings, also helps them hone their talents and skills and builds confidence.”

Learning at Assumption happens inside and outside the classroom, in the local community and beyond. In addition to the strong academic curriculum, the variety of clubs and organizations promote the importance of social, recreational, academic, and cultural activities among the student body. Joining clubs on campus gives students the chance to hone their leadership skills, meet new friends, network with faculty and staff, and perhaps find one’s future vocation.
