November 13, 2019 | The Clarion
Adventure Education Conference
Following the opening presentation, the
schedule was divided into three periods of
workshops, where attendees could choose from
an array of diverse, educational and interactive
seminars to take part in.
Upon invitation, those to lead workshops
were BC students and faculty as well as outside
members of the community.
During the summer, Fuesler took charge and
began to plan small, but important details. She
says that her primary task was to find a keynote
speaker for the conference. Fuesler said that

it was difficult, however, overall exciting
“reaching out to vendors, schools, and finding
people willing to present.”
“If I had attended this conference as a
participant, the two biggest draws for me would
be networking with other students who I might
one day be working with, and being able to
learn from people who have different areas of
expertise,” Fuesler said. “It gave students the
opportunity to interact with people who they
would not ordinarily meet.”
BC seniors George Dowis and Jason Doroski
agreed that networking was a huge advantage
for them at the AEC.
From “Rope Tricks” with Clyde Carter to
“Resumes that Rock” with Nacole Potts, there

Diabetes awareness event held in honor of Sweezy
On Tuesday, Nov. 12 BC Campus Life
invited students, faculty and staff to participate
in a diabetes awareness event. Campus nurse
Pat Clackler conducted diabetes screenings
in the lobby of Myers Dining Hall, where
students could pose with a banner and post on
social media in order to be entered into a raffle
to win $50 to the campus bookstore.
Bill’s Boiler House also featured a special
beverage for the day.
The festivities were both to raise awareness
about diabetes and to honor the life of Sweezy,
a beloved student who passed away due to
diabetes related causes.
