coffeebreakReminder: Cans Across the Conference
Support SAAC and God's Storehouse! SAAC has placed boxes in offices around campus to collect canned goods. The deadline has been extended and boxes will now be collected on Monday, Oct. 28.

Please help support our student-athletes in this endeavor.


coffeebreakShare Information with Students
Is there something going on you need to let our students know about? Bill Woodward, dean of students, sends them a weekly email on Tuesdays. Email Bill with your information by Monday and he'll make sure it is shared with students. Please be sure to include all of the pertinent information such as date, time, place and a brief description if necessary.


coffeebreakCoffee Talk: Kazakhstan under Stalin
The library will host a Coffee Talk on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 11:15 a.m. in the academic commons (main floor). Continuing the theme of history and human rights, visiting Fulbright Scholar Dr. Sholpan Gaisina will relate experiences of her family in Kazakhstan under the Soviet regime of Joseph Stalin.


coffeebreakChina: A Cycling Kingdom
Join Averett student Xiaomin "Min" Xu, as he takes you on a cycling journey through China on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 4 p.m. in Davenport 107. He will discuss tips for doing this yourself and show highlights from his own cycling expedition.


coffeebreakEngaging Students by Connecting
Have you set up your Moodle profile? Each instructor has a personal page in Moodle called a profile, where you can provide a little description of yourself, a photo and your contact information. It's important to introduce yourself like this in online classes, but even if you teach only in the face-to-face classroom, providing this information gives students another opportunity to learn about, and connect, with you.

In your introduction, consider sharing your reasons for teaching, like how you enjoy helping students think critically or fulfill their career goals. If you'd like to learn more about Moodle, register for tomorrow's (Oct. 24) workshop at 11:15 a.m. on the Main Campus.


coffeebreakLunch & Learn
Dr. Jill Hamlin, director of autism studies, will host a Lunch & Learn on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 11:30 a.m. in Main 131.

Did you know there are actually seven sensory systems? Did you always wonder what sensory modulation and sensory integration meant? Do you have a co-worker or family member that you liken to Tigger or Eeyore? Maybe you, yourself, could be Taz! Whatever the reason for your interest, join Jill to explore the world of sensory processing and all its quirky glory! Bring your lunch, your enthusiasm and your questions to Main 131.


coffeebreakHalloween Candy Collection
On Thursday, Oct. 31, beginning at 6 p.m. in front of Main Hall, we will be passing out candy to children in the Danville area. If you are interested in helping that evening, please contact Lesley Villarose at lvillarose@averett.edu.

Every Halloween we have hundreds of children come through so we need a lot of candy! Please donate a bag of candy in the Student Center or Main Hall. Every little bit counts!


coffeebreakAnnual Halloween Costume Competition
Come one, come all! The annual Halloween costume competition will be held Thursday, Oct. 31 at noon in the dining hall (lunch is not provided). Prizes will be awarded for first and second place groups (offices/departments), first and second place individual and the top two student costumes. Come and join the fun!
