The Skyline College Beta Theta Omicron members had a busy summer volunteering in the community. They initiated several community service projects during the spring semester and continued the projects throughout the summer. Continuing their Computer Literacy and Internet Competency for Seniors (CLICS) program, our students held training sessions at Magnolia Senior Center to help senior citizens learn to use their smartphones and tablets. Chapter president Karen Lai said she “felt a strong sense of accomplishment when seniors learned to send their first text message, or post their first picture on Facebook. Their excitement and happiness motivates me to continue volunteering.”

Beta Theta Omicron continued their precollege outreach at the Boys and Girls Club of North San Mateo County. Chapter members encouraged children to learn science with a fun, edible lab on making ice cream.

Chapter members also participated in established community service events including Habitat for Humanity in San Francisco and the San Francisco Food Bank.
