Back2Basics Academy

Back to Basics Academy

The idea behind the Back2Basics Club is to follow the golden rule of “to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  So many of us have moved away from the simple values that we were born with.  Examples, saying thank you, giving common courtesies, allowing an older person to sit and the like.  However, this club will remind us of those values, but strive to do much more.  In other words, bring back what has worked in the past.

Back2Basics will be led by Student Workers of Career Services.  Other students, however, will be invited to join.  Students will make the rules, suggest topics to do panels on, (Life Skills Strategies) handle operation of club, and choose officers.  Students will visit area high schools to teach their same values and to help them understand how to utilize Career Services.  Students will also be sent to make presentations during classes on
GSU Campus.
