Non-profit agencies such as the Boys and Girls Club, the United Way and Goodwill will be in attendance. Come find out how you can volunteer in the community!
Calling all researchers, reviewers, creative writers, photographers and poets! It's time to dust off your academic and creative work or to start working on that new project you've been putting off.
The deadline for submissions to the 2011-2012 Averett Journal is Oct. 18. We would love to your submission before then if possible (Hint: Please don't put this off.).
We are accepting work in the categories of: research and application, poetry, short stories, essays, book reviews and photography.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact Susan Huckstep or Steve Ausband. We look forward to another great edition of the Averett Journal.
|Party On With Our Alumni!|
Homecoming weekend is fast approaching. If it's not already on your calendars, (Sept. 30-Oct. 2) mark it now. As faculty and staff members, you are an important part of the Averett experience for our alumni. Please make plans to attend as many Homecoming events as possible. Special reunions include English and education majors, Averett in the 1990's, CSU/BSU and alumni that traveled with Dr. Ed Fisher on his summer trips.
A full schedule is available on the web, but the big items are:
1) Friday night, 6:30 p.m., Homecoming Hometown Party at the Community Market. Tickets are $25 per person, child care is available at the Danville Science Center for $20 (if you sell 10 tickets, you get a free ticket). We will need volunteers to help with the event by helping watch the door or serve beverages.
2) Saturday morning tailgate party, club carnival and football game vs N.C. Wesleyan at 1 p.m. Come and support current students, see alumni and watch what promises to be a great game.
If you would like to help with Homecoming to make it great for Averett, Danville and the world, please contact Dan Hayes, the alumni guy.

|Chance For a Free Chick-fil-A Sandwich|
Chick-fil-A has teamed with the department of athletics this fall to get a free Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich into the hands of everyone who attends a football game. To make sure you have an opportunity to receive a free sandwich, pick up a ticket at the gate and then cheer like mad (chanting eat more chicken would work) for the team to score at least 35 points. If the team scores 35 points or more, the bearer of the football ticket can receive a free chicken sandwich at either Danville Chick-fil-A location (Piedmont Mall or Riverside Drive).
|Professor to Write Monthly Column|
English/Journalism Professor Dr. David Hoffman will be writing a column for the local newspaper, the Danville Register & Bee, called "All the Beauty of Nature." The first column, "Summer of the White Twin Deer," will appear Sunday, Sept. 18. Be sure to read it when it comes out.
