Walsh University Office of Residence Life is a featured program.
The Residence Life Benefit Fish Fry is the spring service project that raises support and money for a member of the University community. The Residence Life office works in collaboration with University departments to select a faculty or staff person (or family member) that is in need. Past benefits have included a campaign to raise money for our Founding Brother’s mission in Haiti to help provide disaster support, a Campus Police officer severely injured in a traffic accident, a support staff member battling cancer, and a faculty member diagnosed with a terminal illness. Regardless of the cause, the University community consistently donates their support to help one of our own!
For the event in March of 2017, menu options included a choice of fish or pasta, with a baked potato or French fries, a choice of apple sauce or coleslaw, and a dinner roll. The event also featured raffle prizes, gift baskets and gift certificates. This year all proceeds benefit Walsh employee Becky Scheibelhood, who is currently on medical leave as she battles cancer. For the past 20 years, Becky has had tremendous influence on Walsh students living in the residence halls where she has worked as a housekeeper. See Annual Benefit Fish Fry – March 3, 2017
