    A large group of students, faculty, and staff from the North campus recently visited Texas Children’s Hospital to bring some cheer and good will to young patients at the hospital.

    The photo at left shows North campus employees Tina Sanchez, Amy Ammerman, and Tom Cortez, who participated in the volunteer effort.

    San Jac people distributed cute teddy bears to children in their rooms and provided cosmetology services to the young patients, as well as to their visiting friends and relatives. Students dressed as life-sized cartoon characters roamed the hospital walls to visit with the youngsters. Some entertained children with karaoke singing. Others spent quality time with the little patients in a recreation room, playing pool, Guitar Hero, and other video games. A group of faculty members and students hosted a live broadcast on the hospital’s closed-circuit Lolipop radio station that prompted people to dance down the hallways.

    Be sure to watch the related slideshow (below) to see more photos from the fun event.
