    (New Orleans) - On Friday, August 23, Dillard University’s Class of 2017 will package 10,000 meals in partnership with “Stop Hunger Now,” an international hunger relief agency, as part of a freshmen community service project. Students will prepare the meals from 9 a.m. until noon in Henson Hall.   Carretta Cooke, director of the Center for Career and Professional Development, said that this is the first time Dillard students are partnering with the non-profit agency that operates out of Raleigh, NC.

    “We hope that by participating in this event our students will have a better understanding about hunger and how a brief time of service can affect people on a global scale,” Cooke said.  “This is important for our students because they get to view the world through a global lens of inclusion and are educated about hunger and its impact,” she added.

    Dillard University has been recognized nationally for its student engagement efforts in the New Orleans area. As part of its graduation requirements students must complete a minimum of 120 hours of community service. Last year, the Class of 2013 completed more than 36,000 hours of volunteer service.

    Since 1998, “Stop Hunger Now” has been distributing food and other lifesaving aid to children and families in countries throughout the world. It began its meal packaging program in 2005. The program perfected the assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets. Each meal costs only 25 cents. The food stores easily, has a shelf-life of two years and transports quickly. “Stop Hunger Now” works with international partners that ship and distributes the meals in-country.

    AUGUST 22, 2013 - Each month we are bombarded with bills in our inbox, smartphone, or mail. Of course with anything, without having a sound system in place, we can easily be overwhelmed.


    
If your bills have gotten the best of you, here are three steps to help manage your monthly bills.


    
Create a System
    
Having a system for your bills is key. A great idea is to pay your bills according to your pay schedule. For example, if you are paid on the 1st and 15th, you may want to pay your bills on the same dates. Let's say for instance if a bill is due on the 7th, paying this bill on the 1st will not only reduce late fees, but also give you peace of mind knowing this bill has already been paid.


    
Write it Down
    
It doesn't matter where or how, but writing your bills and due dates somewhere visible can help you better manage your bills. Consider using a bill calendar or making one of your own. There are also apps that are available that can help you manage your bills. 


    
Reduce Them
    
Of course bills could be overwhelming, but there is something you can do about it. After you have taking the time to write your bills, review each one to determine whether you can eliminate or reduce it. This will not only help you better manage your bills but in the long run, help save you money as well!

    Dillard University welcomed a group of 24 public school teachers from Brazil this summer for an intensive English language study program and received a dose of global awareness in return.

    As part of a new collaboration between the U.S. and Brazilian governments and historically black colleges and universities in the United States, the teachers are spending six weeks taking classes to improve their reading, writing and speaking abilities, then taking their sharpened English skills back to their students.

    The teachers were warned to give Americans more personal space and told that Americans are not as outwardly friendly as Brazilians but found a warm welcome in New Orleans.
