|Equestrian Summer Camp|
The Averett Equestrian Center is happy to announce its first summer camp program, June 17-21, for students age 8-15. Whether your child has ridden before or is a complete beginner, our camp has something for every horse crazy kid out there!
The day camp will run from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., and focuses on riding and horse care skills. Space is limited, so please contact Cricket Morris at (434) 770-2941 for a registration packet or more information.
|Register for Advanced Emergency Training|
Attention emergency coordinators, registration for advanced emergency management training is still open. The training will be held May 20-22, May 28-30 and June 3-5. All sessions will be held from 3-5:30 p.m. in Blount Chapel. Participants must attend all nine workshops as the modules are built on one another - the final workshop serves as the skills certification.
If you have not already done so, send Kathie Tune an email to register for the May-June training program.

For any questions, please email Carly Pearce at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Using Cloud Apps for Collaboration and Storage|
Staff, do you need to collaborate with others to prepare documents or presentations? Faculty, would you like your students to work together to develop team papers, projects or presentations? Free cloud apps can allow group members to collaborate online by building a wiki, chatting synchronously, sharing files, drawing on a shared whiteboard and more!
Or cloud apps can just be used for storage. Instead of carrying a flash drive to the classroom or from home to the office, access your course presentations and files online from anywhere.
To learn more about cloud apps and gain some firsthand experience, register here for a one-hour workshop - Cloud Apps for File Storage and Sharing at 10 a.m., Thursday, May 9.
