A Friday Cornucopia

zcornucopiaHappy fall and happy All Saint’s Day!  Hope that you all had a safe and happy Halloween.

This week we have a veritable cornucopia of various announcements about deadlines, events, and activities.  See details below!

  • At your class break next week, join us in the cafeteria for a “coffee break:” free coffee/tea and cookies, plus a chance to schedule your spring advising appointment, pick up a fall 2013 Survival Guide, and meet others in the Professional Studies Program.  Several Human Services seniors are collecting items to help different agencies, so if you have:
    • Cell Phones, Alesandra Sanchez will turn them into cash for a local preschool;
    • Canned food, Parker English will add them to that which he is collecting for Second Harvest; or
    • New or gently used baby items (including new diapers), Kayla Neilsen is helping to support Teen Success.
  • From Amy JobinPlease join us in supporting the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in Nicaragua by walking or running in the NicaArgo 5K event on November 9, 2013!  If you would like to run, walk, or volunteer for the NicaArgo 5K, you can sign up on on-line at:  http://www.ndnu.edu/funrun/.  Please feel free to pass this along to family, friends and others in the Bay Area; children are welcome too!  This event is part of (Dis)Abilities Week from Nov. 4-9 at NDNU, more details coming soon.   Email sprzybus@student.ndnu.edu or ajobin@ndnu.edu ifany questions.  We hope you can join us!
  • DROP DEADLINES/FEES.  If you need to drop a class, do it soon!
    • If you drop your class by November 5, there is a $25 per class penalty fee;
    • If you drop between November 6-12, there is a 50% tuition penalty fee;
    • If you drop between November 13-19, there is a 75% tuition penalty fee; and
    • After November 19, there is no refund for a course dropped.
    • BE AWARE that there are also potential financial aid implications to dropping classes as well, so talk to your adviser if you need help.
  • On Wednesday, November 6 at 7PM in the Cunningham Chapel, Tamara Rozofsky will be speaking “in conversation” with School of Education professor William Barry on Faith, Disability, and Humor.  The event is free; a dessert and coffee reception will follow.
  • On Friday, November 8 from 2-4:30, you are invited to join Professor Miriam Zimmerman’s Holocaust Class to meet Holocaust Survivor Annemarie Yellin.  She will talk of her experience of Krystallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, which occurred on November 9 and 10, 1938, 75 years ago.  Hear of her escape from Germany and rescue by nuns in a convent school in Belgium.  This is a unique opportunity to meet one of the last living survivors of the Holocaust and to hear her story.  Meet at the Province center of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur at 1502 Ralston Avenue (lower campus, opposite Ralston Hall).

Stay tuned next week for:

  • What to do about your GE requirements if you have a math phobia; and
  • Survey results about what graduating seniors think of their program here at NDNU.
