In honor of National Recycling Week, we are asking GCC students to share their thoughts and ideas about recycling at the Batavia Campus.
Please take a moment to complete this short survey and you will be entered to win the Recycling Raffle Basket featuring all kinds of College goodies. There are less than 10 questions in the survey, so it should take just a minute or two.
Please let your students know that the library is offering a workshop on how to avoid committing plagiarism. The workshop will be offered at 6 different days/times which will be held in the library classroom on:
11 – noon and 2 – 3 pm
12:30 – 2 pm
5 – 6 pm
11 – noon
2 – 3 pm
The workshop will cover summarizing, paraphrasing, and MLA citation, though students are welcome to bring any questions they have about other citation styles.
We would very much appreciate it if you would promote the workshop to your students (thanks!) and offer extra credit for their attendance (double thanks!!).
Any instructor who is listed by a student as giving them extra credit will be notified.

From the attached flyer you see that you have the opportunity to honor a veteran by placing their name on the Wall of Honor. We will have a table in the Forum or at the back of the cafeteria over the next couple of weeks where the cards will be available. Please take the time to stop and to fill out a card for each of the veterans that you know. There will be another opportunity to sign the Honor Cards on Monday, November 2nd from 12:00-2:00. And please take the time to come to our Veterans’ Day Program to honor all of the veterans. It will be at 11:45 in the forum on November 11th. More information will be sent to you about this at a later time. Thank you.
Once again, Career Services will be hosting Open Resume Review hours on Wednesday, November 4th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm on the Batavia Campus in the second floor bridge area (2ndfloor between the Cafeteria and the Forum).
All are welcome to bring their resume (printed or on a thumb drive) to be reviewed by a Career Services staff member. No registration is required; simply walk up!
For more information or to schedule further appointments, feel free to contact the Career Services Center (B201) at 585-345-6888.
The GCC Ski Club is skiing on Monday nights this season. We will travel as a group to Holiday Valley on Mondays starting in the Spring semester.
Our season passes cost $135 (if ordered by November 1st), include 8 free lessons, and are valid beginning in December. Many local students find opportunities to use their passes over the winter break.
If you are a skier or snowboarder, and would like to take advantage of the college season pass rate, let me know. The savings over buying passes on your own is considerable. I will be putting our club order in on Thursday or Friday of this week to take advantage of early-bird pricing. You can still get passes after November 1st, but the cost is a little higher. Some of the season pass options are:
Monday nights $135 Tuesday nights $135 Wednesday nights $140 Thursday nights $140 Friday nights $185 Saturday nights $185 Sunday nights $160
Ultimate night college season pass (7 nights) $199
Ultimate college season pass (7 nights and weekdays) $299
It is going to be a cold winter…. Make the best of it, and hope to see you on the slopes!
