Dear Students: This is to let you know of the interest meeting that will be held on Monday, November 24th at 4:00 PM in 302 Schumacher Hall to formally introduce to students the faculty-led course to Buenos Aires:  SPAN 394 – The Literature and Culture of Buenos Aires.

A vital heart for writers, dancers, musicians, actors, filmmakers and artists from all over the world, Buenos Aires is one of the liveliest cities on earth. A resilient and nostalgic capital of unparalleled beauty that time and again responded creatively to recurrent economic and military traumas, its inhabitants are the descendants of Western European immigrants who arrived in Argentina throughout nineteenth century. Through the study of a wide variety of sources and immersion in the urban experience, students will explore the cultural history of Buenos Aires and encounter directly some of the city’s most exciting offerings: outstanding architecture, literary tours, tango lessons, café culture, concert halls, experimental cinema, street performances, soccer events and world famous graffiti. In search of a better understanding of Argentina’s complex literature, history and politics, the lessons will aim to guide the class through a rich variety of multilayered landscapes, art forms and worldviews. Course will be conducted in English and will include a research project.

There will be a presentation on the March 4th-15th itinerary abroad, followed by a Q & A session.  Students unable to attend wanting to learn more about the course please email me, Daniel Nahson at daniel.nahson@oneonta.edu, for an appointment.

Phi U will be assembling birthday bags for St. Mary’s food pantry on Monday December 1st. We would greatly appreciate any non-perishable donations including cake mix, candles, paper plates, plastic utensils, etc.  Please drop off all donations in the Human Ecology office before the 1st labeled “Phi U.” Thank you!

Aging in the 21st Century: Presentation will be given by Lisa Curch at noon on Thursday, November 20th in the Butternut Valley Room in Hunt Union.

The talk will address experiences of and attitudes towards aging in the United States and the implications of such notions for everyday life as we grow older. A general conclusion can be made that we as a society, as local communities, and as individuals need to do a better job of planning and preparing for later life. To do so, we need to be familiar with and work with changes that come with age – physical, psychological and social – rather than continually fighting and/or denying that such changes happen. And while the challenges of aging will be brought up, the rewards and opportunities, for society and ourselves, will be highlighted.

This presentation is brought to you by the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Committee.  The NYS Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is funded through negotiated agreements between the State of NY and CSEA, PEF, UUP, C-82, DC-37, NYSCOPBA & GSEU. GOER provides funding on behalf of M/C employees.

Bill Harcleroad, Director of Campus Activities and Kent Sumner, Assistant Director for Marketing at Oregon State University co-authored the article “Unified Publicity Across Diverse Platforms” in the November/December 2014 edition of Campus Activities Programming a magazine published by the National Association of Campus Activities (NACA).

The grand opening of The Red Closet Thrift Shop was a great success. There was a steady flow of enthusiastic shoppers and sales were strong.  Our PWYW (pay what you will) pricing strategy seems to be working well.  Most items are a suggested price of $3 but some items we suggest more and some less. Ultimately the pricing is up to the shopper, knowing that the proceeds go towards a SUNY Oneonta sustainability scholarship. Staffed by volunteers, the store will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Netzer basement – look for the red door!

New items arrive each day, so check back often. Currently we are seeking donations of gently used items such as clean clothing in good condition (men’s women’s, and children’s), home décor, quality holiday decorations, jewelry and books.

If you have questions, please email us at oneontathrift@oneonta.edu.  Please like our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter at @OneyRedCloset.  Our Website: http://www.oneonta.edu/sustainability/thrift/
