Hormel Foods is a Fortune 500 company that comes from small town roots and now serves customers globally. Beginning next year, the company will offer two years of free college tuition to the children of its employees without consideration for the students' GPA or test scores. The students can attend any community college so long as they meet that college's enrollment requirements.

This program is such a great way for a company to give back to its employees.

The Dreamweaver Foundation provided 300 easy-to-use video communication devices to senior citizens.

For over 25 years, the Dreamweaver Foundation has served senior citizens by providing end-of-life dreams. The Dreamweaver Foundation has donated 300 video communication devices to senior citizens at no cost to them in order to make it easier for them to video chat with their loved ones, especially during quarantine. The reactions from the senior citizens that received the devices was overwhelmingly positive, as for some of them this was the first time they'd been able to see their loved ones in months, even through a screen. These devices are complete with modifications for easy use for senior citizens including large buttons.

Bringing families closer together, especially during quarantine, can be a life-changing thing. Feelings of loneliness are very tough among senior citizens, especially among those living in nursing homes and hospice centers, and this device is a great way to help them feel less isolated and more connected to their loved ones.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
