Middle College Students Design New “Urban Center”

Senior Economics students at Middle College recently worked in teams on an Urban Plan project that required them to design a new urban center for a 5 ½ block area called “Elmwood.”  Each team built a three-dimensional version of their plan.  They also created a financial analysis of their plan that projected the number of jobs, revenue for the city and profit for the development company.  However, the most challenging aspect of this project was that they had to address the competing economic and political interests of the politicians and neighboring residents who would have to live with the redevelopment once it is built. The teams were visited twice by actual land use professionals that critiqued their plans and offered insights and constructive feedback.  The work culminated in a presentation mid-November. Each team defended their proposals to a “City Council.”  This was a very complex and challenging project that will forever change students’ views of modern urban development. Great job Middle College students!

Aragon, Burlingame and Capuchino Students Collect More than 2,000 Cans of Food

iStock_000058325798_Medium.jpgIn addition to sporting some friendly competition, the ABC (Aragon, Burlingame, Capuchino) Canned Food Drive collected more than 2,000 cans of food that were donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of San Mateo to help local families in need. The Students In Action Club (SIA) at Burlingame, together with leadership teams from both Aragon and Capuchino led the effort. SIA, one of the youth programs founded by the Jefferson Foundation, trains and develops youth leaders. SIA Burlingame has committed to creating community change through one local and one global initiative. In addition to the canned food drive, the SIA Club is running a year-long water bottle recycling campaign to raise funds to purchase goats for a family in a third world country. Club members were inspired by the Dons and Mustangs and are excited to work with district schools in the future to further its impact on the community.
