The CSEA Women’s Committee Annual School Supply Drive is running from August 1st through the 19th. Please bring in new school items. Last year The Family Service Association was able to serve 487 children. Each year we are able to provide several boxes of new supplies to students who otherwise wouldn’t have any. If you would like to donate, please click on the following link for a list of items needed and the campus areas where collection boxes will be located: School Supply Drive.
Thank you in advance for donating!

As most of you know Mancini construction’s concrete sub contractor has to replace the concrete in the Hunt Union entry drive due to improper finish.
Our plan is to remove the concrete on Monday August 1,2016 and reinstall the new rebar.
On Tuesday August 2 the new concrete with proper finish will be installed.
Therefore the West entrance to Hunt Union will need to be closed until Wed Morning.
Signage will be put up to direct the general public to the entrances at the Lower Level of Hunt Union:
1. South Pond entrance to elevator & corridor.
2. Rear door to Service corridor near disabled parking spaces.
Thank you as this will correct the condition before the students return Mid August.

Amie Doughty, English, has published an edited collection of essays called Children’s and Young Adult Literature and Culture: A Mosaic of Criticism with Cambridge Scholars Publishing. The essays, based on 2015 presentations from the Children’s Literature and Culture area of the Popular Culture Association, represent a range of topics in children’s and young adult literature and culture. Topics include fairy tales and fairy tale revisions, intersectionality in African American Girls sports literature and in YA dystopian fiction, religion in Harry Potter (and Snape as a Judas figure), bullying in picture books, and the popularity of YA fiction with adults. The collection includes an essay by Doughty about environmentalism in Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series.
