My Test: Jacob Carter’s Wilderness Shelter

If you found yourself stranded in the middle of the forest, would you know how to survive? Any wilderness expert will tell you the first thing to do is build a shelter, but it’s a skill known by fewer and fewer young people in an age where the closest the average teenager gets to the wilderness is Farmville. For Professor Lisa Phillips’ fall 2014 Digital Storytelling class, Jacob Carter spent five days in the forest building a wilderness shelter, learning valuable lessons about the wilderness — and himself — along the way.

For the past two years Epic Glee Club has been voted by SUNY New Paltz as the best club on campus, but what is it about this club that makes it so special? Students Kelsey Fluery, Jacob Carter and Jennifer Hussein take a look in, get to know a few of the key members, and find out what it really takes to be apart of Epic Glee.

Four college students from SUNY New Paltz tell their stories and experiences surrounding Dungeons and Dragons. They discuss the stereotypes associated with the game with Samantha Pritchard, Heather Handler and Josh Govier.

As a college student, eating healthy is very challenging. Because of a busy life between work and school many students end up eating large amounts of fast food and junk food.
