SOS to feed students Saturday

April 20, 2011 —

Significant Others Support (SOS), the organization for spouses and significant others of students attending Des Moines University, is hosting its last Feed the Students event for the year this Saturday, April 23, at 9 a.m. in the SEC Commons for second-year medical students who are participating in the Kaplan study course. SOS will offer baked goods, fruit, yogurt, juice, soda and coffee during the first break at 9 a.m. We hope that all second-year students studying their hearts out on Saturday will take this opportunity to feed their brains while they fill it with board knowledge.

This is the fourth Feed the Students event that SOS has hosted this school year, and I want to thank all the volunteers for providing food and time away from their busy calendars. The students appreciate it! Also thanks to DMU for providing some of the food for this last event!

Students, we’ll see you on Saturday. Study hard!
