What's New at Walsh

Blackwell Field Trip to Troy Campus

6/21/2017 11:09:27 AM
Education is something that is close to my heart. I feel that everyone, regardless of their age or background, should have the opportunity. I have been very fortunate over the years to be given a variety of educational opportunities to learn and grow. I realize that not everyone is as fortunate, and that is one of the reasons why I got involved with students at the Blackwell Institute.

Mentoring At All Ages

4/27/2017 4:27:24 PM
Students of all ages can benefit from someone who is a little older, has more experience, and has been in their shoes before. Last Friday, I had the opportunity to participate in two events. The morning event was mock interviews with high school students in a business class. In the evening, I attended a networking event that focused on launching the Walsh College mentorship program.

Teaching Children the Importance of Serving the Country

3/6/2017 2:09:08 PM
Back in 2008, I started an outreach program with a Detroit elementary school. Over the past nine years, we have worked with several classrooms. We have hosted several collection drives, held field trips, scheduled monthly tutoring sessions, and hold an annual toy delivery with Santa. It has made a profound impact on the school, gained the respect of school administrators, and the students have grown to love Walsh.

We Have Holiday Spirit! Yes We Do.

12/8/2016 2:35:54 PM
During the holidays we sometimes get wrapped up in finding the best shopping deals, figuring out when to host the holiday party with family, decorating, baking, cooking, cleaning and the list goes on. One thing we all have to keep in perspective is what the holidays are truly meant for, thinking of others less fortunate.

Best Foot Forward

We all know it is important to have a good first impression on interviews and at the job. That comes at a heavy cost on the pocketbook. Guess the old theory of “Have to spend money to make money” applies here. There are essential expenses, including student loans that are starting to roll in as you’re looking for a job. This isn’t really discussed much, but Walsh understands the need and has taken steps to help you.

Veteran's Day 2016

10/25/2016 4:01:28 PM
A few weeks back I was at a gas station fueling up my car, and as I was standing there, a senior citizen hopped out of his large SUV wearing a WWII baseball cap. Considering there are so few of these veterans from that era still living, I was very tempted to strike up a conversation with him.
