|Studio One features human rights awareness and the "Staying on Track" program|
The next edition of Studio One will feature Emmanuel Jal, a man who uses his music to help end human rights violations. Born in Sudan, Jal was forced to become a soldier at age 11. Now, he uses music to educate people about human rights violations that are happening throughout the world. Jal argues that donating money isn’t enough. He says that education will help people in need. “The worst thing you can do as a human being is to give a fellow human being food, but not show him how to make that food,” Jal said. Find out more about Jal’s efforts to raise awareness for his cause.
Lisa Burger, the director of the Student Success Center at UND, will discuss the benefits of the “Staying on Track” session series. This program helps students succeed academically by teaching study skills, such as how to effectively read a textbook and take helpful notes. The program also includes seminars on budgeting, nutrition and stress. “Staying on Track’ is not just a program for succeeding in college, it is a program that will help students succeed in life,” said Burger.
