Patricia Denault of Elon was one of 47 interns who completed the Clinic Challenge Experience during the fall 2018 quarter at Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, S.C.

CCX was designed to help students make a successful transition from classroom to chiropractic internship by sharpening their professional focus, energizing their passion for chiropractic and exposing them to success principles for practice.

The ropes course on Sherman College’s campus consists of a variety of “challenges by choice” — using ropes, pulleys, walls, platforms, poles — all of which present students with the opportunity to use problem-solving skills and teamwork. Facilitators and teammates encourage participants to face and overcome whatever fears are blocking their ability to accomplish the tasks.


Students at High Point University are partnering with Food Lion Feeds, N.C. Campus Compact and other colleges and universities across the state to raise support for hunger relief.

Through the Collegiate Challenge, they are also competing to win up to $20,000 to further their efforts toward alleviating food insecurity in High Point.

HPU and 17 other Campus Compact member institutions are hosting events on their campuses through the month of December to collect donations and raise awareness about hunger and homelessness. They will earn points for each event. The campus that collects the most food adjusted for its size will win $10,000, and another $10,000 will be awarded for creativity and engagement. The prize funds will support hunger-related initiatives such as campus-based food pantries, campus or community gardens, food recovery efforts, or fresh produce distribution.

Meredith Kreeger, an AmeriCorps VISTA hosted by HPU who works on healthy food access in the community, and senior Hannah Gordner, a nonprofit leadership and management major and member of the Bonner Leader Program, are leading HPU’s campaign.
