SGA Needs PUBP Representative

Fellow Public Policy Students:

Hello, my name is Travis Horsley. I was elected by you in the previous semester to serve the School of Public Policy in the Undergraduate House of Representative, part of the Student Government Association. I am deeply humbled by being allowed to serve you in this position for the previous semester, but I would like to inform you that I have recently decided to resign from SGA in order to focus on classwork in preparation for graduation. If you would like to represent the Public Policy students in SGA, please send an email to Parker Hancock at parkerhancock expressing your interest. Thanks for allowing me to serve you!

Yours in White and Gold,
Travis

Contest: Where Do You Learn Best?

Herman Miller, a leading designer and manufacturer of office and learning environments, announces its first student video contest titled, “Hey, Where Do You Learn Best?”. The contest is designed to encourage full-time students attending 2-or 4-year U.S.-based colleges or universities to share where they learn best (on or off campus) and why that place best supports their learning.

They hope this contest and its results will be of great interest to campus leadership, as well as faculty and students. Video responses will shed new insight into the rapidly changing needs of students and how higher education facilities can effectively respond to those needs.

Full details of the contest are available online and from their Facebook page.

Entries will be accepted until March 26, 2010. The entries that best represent creativity, originality, and appropriateness to the theme will receive a first prize $2500 Visa gift card, a second prize $1500 Visa gift card, and a third prize $1000 Visa gift card.
