Coordinator's Corner September 2022
It is hard to believe that we are already four weeks into Fall 2022. We are so happy to see so many students back on campus. The Reading Writing Center is back to a hum and we are starting to see more students face to face and working at the tables again. Zoom services are here to stay for both one and one appointments and small groups, but it feels great to have human contact again!
Our RC Literary Arts Speakers Series kicks off this month with author Talia Lakshmi Kolluri, who will be reading in the Forum Hall on Sept 8th, 2022, form 7 pm to 8 pm. We also have free copies here in the RWC of the One Book One College Text, The Murmur of Bees, by Sofia Segovia. For those of you interested in a bit of magical realism and history of the Mexican Revolution...with the complication of the 1918 outbreak of Influenza... you will find it a story you won't want to put down! Homecoming activities will also return at the end of the month with Safari Days and introduction of our new Fall Sports Teams! Student clubs are back with some new additions, including Theater and Creative Writing. Look inside this issue and find something new to make your back to campus experience the best one yet! As ever, you are all invited to come by the RWC and see our new location in the Library. We are here to help and look forward to seeing you this year. Happy September!
