Just before the start of Fall Semester classes, there is a group of new and returning students who have already been on campus at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College working and building our campus community with our Student Services and program staff. We call this pre-college camp Seek to Learn: Nandagikendaan, and it’s a powerful experience created through federal Title III funding to help our students achieve greater success in their college endeavors.
One of the activities Nandagikendaan students participate in each year is making a music video focused on positive messaging around our college’s core values of Integrity, Compassion, Stewardship, Innovation and Respect. This video is the result of creativity, collective focus, vision and great teamwork.
This year’s video production was facilitated by Jeremy Gardner and the ODAS Workstudy Crew of Darek DeLille, Shandelle Friedman and Hunter Jaakola.


It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.
