coffeebreakStudent Life Department
The offices within student life have completed their moves and are unpacking their boxes. Notable changes that have taken place: the office of housing and residence life is now located on the fourth floor in the old dean's suite; we are working towards creating a new student leader resource room where students from all groups can come to make posters, fliers and learn creative new leadership activities for their students; and counseling services now has an office title on the door: The Office of Peer Education and Wellness.

We are very excited about the positive changes we have made to enhance the student learning process. Please keep a look out for a student life open house at the beginning of October.


coffeebreak"How I Became a Pirate"
The Averett theatre department proudly presents its Theatre For Youth production "How I Became a Pirate," a musical. The production will be performed Thursday, Sept. 18 and Friday, Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday Sept. 20, at 2:30 p.m.

Just a reminder that all faculty and staff receive two free tickets. So grab your children or your grandchildren and bring them to the show. For more information, give Richard Breen, theatre professor a call at extension 15711.


coffeebreakCans Across The Conference
The Student Athlete Advisory Committee is collecting cans for their annual Cans Across the Conference community service event. The cans will be donated to God's Storehouse. There are boxes located on the fourth floor of the student center, third and fourth floors of Frith Hall, Averett Central and the North Campus.


coffeebreakConduct/Academic Board
The office of the dean of students is looking for students to serve on the 2014-15 Conduct/Academic Honor Board. This board, which is comprised of faculty, staff and students, is an important part of the University's conduct process and annual review of conduct policies. Serving on the conduct board is a great opportunity for a student to represent the student voice and experience as well as develop critical thinking, problem solving and leadership skills.

Please consider recommending students to apply for the board by sending them the application, or send nominations to Marsha Foster. Applications are due by Sept. 24 (next Wednesday) to the dean of students' office on the fourth floor of the Student Center.

Collecting Donations

Frankie Reaves, a local pastor, went on a mission trip to South Dakota this summer. During the trip, Reaves visited a reservation, where the plight of the children touched him. Since his return, Reaves has partnered with other local churches to fill a tractor trailer with non-perishable goods to take back to the reservation.

If you would like to make a donation to this cause, drop items off to Tammy Wall in the business office. Wall also asks that if you don't use the coupons in Sunday's paper that you drop those by as well. If you have questions, or need more information please contact Wall at twall@averett.edu.
