Change in Holiday Break Schedule

I am pleased to announce that senior leadership has decided to extend the holiday break one additional day this year for all of our staff employees.  Instead of the semester break beginning on Tuesday, December 24, 2013, as was originally planned, the break will begin at the end of the day on Friday, December 20, 2013 and run through Wednesday, January 1, 2014.   The campus will reopen, and staff are expected to return to work, on Thursday, January 2, 2014.

We hope you enjoy this gift of additional time and have a wonderful holiday break!

Film Screening: "Waking Sleeping Beauty" with Director Don Hahn

By the mid-1980s, the fabled animation studios of Walt Disney had fallen on hard times. The artists were polarized between newcomers hungry to innovate and old-timers not yet ready to relinquish control. These conditions produced a series of box-office flops and pessimistic forecasts: maybe the best days of animation were over, and maybe the public didn't care.

New Directory to Launch Next Week

The new directory will launch on next week. Featuring an improved look, links to department pages, and a variety of search options, the directory will help you find staff and faculty across the college.

Stay tuned for more information next week.
