Road Work – Batavia Campus

To the Campus Community,

Site development continues on our roadways and parking lots for the construction project.  Starting Wednesday (July 13) work begins on the West-end driveway near the 90-degree bend that turns towards the college, across the back north parking lot and into the service driveway.  Blacktop is being removed and resurfacing will take place.  This may result in some delays along the West driveway and service entrance driveway.  Work will go through Friday and possibly into Monday.

Traffic may be delayed entering and leaving the service area and there will be short periods of time where traffic cannot get through.  Large deliveries should be scheduled to avoid this time or expect delays in getting to the loading dock.

Thank you for your continued understanding and assistance.

Upcoming showing of free feature length movie – He Named Me Malala

Dear Friends,

The Global Education Committee is inviting you and your students, as well as friends and family members to our free showing of the movie

He Named Me Malala.  It documents the story of Malala Yousafzai  – the young girl who defied the Taliban in Pakistan.

She was shot in the head by a Talban and survived!  Students in several classes read her book – and were greatly inspired by her courage.

Please make the opportunity of seeing her story on the large screen available to them!

Date: Thursday, February 11

Time: 12:30 sharp (it will take the full 80 minutes!)  If you have students in 12:20 who will see it – they must be in their seats by 12:30!

Place: Stuart Steiner Theatre

No cost!  Open to all.  For group reservations  contact Nina Mortellaro, ext. 6228
