Vegetable Adventures - Lasagna

We close out the fall series with our most-requested topic. You’ll make a vegetable lasagna (for 2) to take home and bake. Then we’ll sit down together to enjoy lasagna the SWC team has made in advance. You’ll learn the building blocks for making lasagna your way…all veggie, loaded with herbs, with noodle options, super saucy or dense and creamy. Plus how to amp up flavor with techniques for caramelizing onions and reducing a sauce. Our meals include cheese, but will not include meat.

BLS Certification Course

BLS Course

Campus Recreation offers a series of FREE American Heart Association Basic Life Support Certification classes throughout the year, thanks to a grant provided by BlueCross BlueShield of TN Foundation. 

The goal of the Basic Life Support Course is to train participants to save lives of victims in cardiac arrest through high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The American Heart Association designed the BLS course to teach healthcare professionals how to perform high-quality CPR individually or as part of a team. BLS skills are applicable to any healthcare setting. BLS students will learn rescue techniques for adults, children and infants.

This course will include a combination of videos, skills practice and testing. A written test will be administered at the end of the course. The BLS for Healthcare Providers covers core materials, including:

  • adult, child, and infant CPR, including one and two-rescuer scenarios and use of the bag-valve mask and other breathing barriers.
  • foreign-body airway obstruction (Heimlich maneuver) for adult, child, and infant (conscious and unconscious).
  • AED (Automated external defibrillation) on both adult and child.
  • special resuscitation situations and cardiopulmonary emergencies.

Limited spaces are available. Once you register for this class, you MUST attend. Participants who register for a class and fail to show up, arrive late or leave before the class ends will not be able to register for future courses. Courses are held in the Student Recreation and Sports Complex (Former Rec Center) Fitness Studio.

Proper CDC standards including wearing masks and social distancing will be followed.
