ASB North Carolina team making rain barrels

Oyster reef ASB team helped build in North CarolinaThe three Alternative Spring Break teams are headed back to Akron today, having logged 2,488 volunteer hours over four days, which is worth a combined total of least $35,500 of minimum wage labor. The teams of students and advisors worked at Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, Ga., which serves children with disabilities, with the North Carolina Coastal Federation in Mateo N.C., and with Habitat for Humanity in Marion, S.C.

North Carolina team members closed out their week by building rain barrels for Jeanette’s Pier in Nagshead, and making bird houses for an Outer Banks Earth Day celebration. Pictured at right is the oyster reef they helped to build.

Meanwhile, the South Carolina team members who did construction and siding on a Habitat home are celebrating a new homeowner getting the keys to her very own front door.

The Georgia team closed out its week with some camp activities, such as boating and archery, once the mulching and painting were finished.

The Office of International Programs will host orientation sessions for more than 300 new international students to UA on Aug. 25 and 26 for the Fall 2015 Semester. We are looking for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to serve as Global Peer Support Leaders for those two days.

Just like your GPS gets you where you need to go, our GPS leaders help new international students find their way on our campus. GPS leaders attend three days of training on Aug. 7, 13 and 14 to learn about the issues that international students face. Then, on Aug. 25 and 26, GPS leaders participate in all international student orientation activities.

At the end of International Student Orientation, a GPS leader will be assigned a small group of international students to communicate with during the fall semester. A GPS leader can play an important role in helping our new international students succeed at UA.

United States Marine Corp Recruitment Tabling Event April 2
11:00 am - 2:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Thinking about your future? Do you want to be a leader instead of a
follower?

Do you want a career that goes above and beyond-literally-into places and
experiences you can only imagine now? Will you settle for less-or will you
jump into the future with both feet?

If you're a college student now, please visit us outside the Career Center office on Thursday, April 2nd, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. to learn about such a career, and for the prestige and adventure that
comes with the title United States Marine Corps Officer!

We're looking for men AND women, under age 28 at graduation, who are
physically fit, and who have the drive and ambition to become Marine
Officers-who feel they should not settle for a ho-hum job after they get a
degree, and who want more out of life. We want self-staring individuals who
know that they can attain anything if they try; people who don't give up
when they encounter an obstacle, and who dare to challenge themselves.

You must be a US Citizen (native born or naturalized). We need you to be
physically fit, morally sound and to pass a Physical Fitness Test (PFT) as
well as a physical examination. You must be a full-time student if you're
in college (but not if you're in your final semester of school,) and have a
minimum score on either the SAT or ACT; you can also qualify by taking the
ASVAB (Armed Serviced Vocational Abilities Battery).

And there is NO OBLIGATION!! If selected, you will attend OCS for either 6
Or 10* weeks during the summer before graduation. Then you will return to
school to complete your degree, and once you do, we'll offer you a
commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. After
completing The Basic School as your first active duty, you'll choose your
career, and from there, we can only say the sky's the limit!
We have a lot more information to share with you-why not call us to discuss
your future? If you're not qualified, we'll let you know-but if you are, and
you want more, then maybe this call can change your life.


*Freshmen and sophomores who apply now go to two 6-week sessions and Juniors
go to one 10-week session in the summers between college years. Graduates,
or those about to graduate, may attend OCS at any one of three classes per
year-in June, September or January.

Art, Archaeology, and Advanced Technology: The Case of the Alexander Mosaic at Pompeii April 9
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image

The ARCHAEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE of AMERICA and the Akron/Kent chapter will host a lecture by Prof. John J. Dobbins, (University of Virginia, AIA Frieda Renner Lecturer). Prof. Dobbins will speak about "Art, Archaeology, and Advanced Technology: The Case of the Alexander Mosaic at Pompeii."

The Alexander Mosaic from the House of the Faun at Pompeii is perhaps the most famous mosaic that has survived from antiquity. This presentation addresses the ancient viewing conditions by posing two fundamental questions: (1) How visible was the space where the mosaic was located, i.e., the Alexander exedra? ; (2) How well could a person see the mosaic? The current condition of the House of the Faun does not permit us to address the two questions just asked. Enter advanced technology! Working with the speaker on these issues is Ethan Gruber who made a 3D model of the house that included a lighting package set for the year 100 BC, the generally accepted approximate date for the mosaic.

The lecture will take place in Folk Hall Auditorium, The University of Akron, on Thursday, April 9, 2015, 7:00 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served and you will have a chance to meet the speaker in the foyer starting at 6:30 p.m.

Parking: The main entrance driveway to Folk Hall, School of Art, University of Akron, is located on the south side of Exchange Ave. between Arc Drive and the Exchange Street Residence Hall. The Auditorium is located at the rear of the building. It is easiest to park behind the building and enter through the back doors.
