Jeans for Justice Day 2014

On Wednesday, April 23, WEAR JEANS.

Why Jeans?

Wearing jeans has become an international symbol of protest responding to the Italian Supreme Court’s overruling of a rape conviction in 1999. An Italian woman was raped,   and   when   the   case went  to  trial,  the  jury  found her assailant guilty. The Supreme Court then overturned the ruling saying that jeans were too difficult to remove  and  the  assailant could  not  have  done  so without the victim’s help.

Earth Day Project

Dear UNCSA Community,

You will be noticing a few changes in the cafeteria next week. In an effort to reduce our school’s carbon footprint, we will be working to reduce napkin waste and raise awareness of the environmental costs of consuming meat.

We have noticed an excessive use of napkins during meal times because of their availability at the tables. We propose reducing the use of napkins by removing the dispensers from the tables and relocating them to the food-service area. With the limited supply of napkins, we ask that you please be considerate of other students and only take what is necessary.

In addition, signs will be posted around the cafeteria informing students and faculty of the environmental and health costs of meat production and consumption.

In the spirit of Earth Day, we hope you will participate in our efforts and not take offense. UNCSA is a great school, please help us make it extraordinary.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Schneider’s High School Environmental Science Class

At the edge of scientific inquiry we often learn from the most unlikely opportunities.

News From Counseling and Testing Services

 

Counseling and Testing Services invites the entire UNCSA Campus Community to come and experience our new labyrinth, which will be set up in Eisenberg on the following dates and times:

  • Monday, April 14th  9 am – 5 pm
  • Tuesday, April 15th 8 am- 5 pm
  • Wednesday, April 16th 8 am – 4 pm
  • Monday, May 5th  1 pm – 5 pm
  • Tuesday, May 6th 8 am-5 pm
  •  Wednesday, May 7th 8 am – 12 pm

 

A labyrinth is walking meditation, a path of prayer and an archetypal blueprint where psyche meets Spirit. It has only one path that leads from the outer edge in a circuitous way to the center.  There are no tricks to it and no dead ends. Unlike a maze where you lose your way, the labyrinth is a spiritual tool that can help you find your way.  Walking the labyrinth reduces stress, quiets the mind, grounds the body and opens the heart.  Counseling and Testing Services will provide information on how to use the labyrinth.  Additional information about labyrinths’ can be found at:  http://veriditas.org/aboutlabyrinth.

2014-15 Student Body President Elected

 

SGA would like to announce John ”Zach” Saffa as Student Body President for the 2014-15 academic year. The election for Student Body President was conducted earlier this week by SGA and verified by the Division of Student Affairs.

 

Zach is a rising second-year graduate student in the School of Music who moved to Winston-Salem in 2006 to attend Wake Forest University where he graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Economics and minor in Music. During his time at WFU Zach studied abroad in Venice, Italy and served as the captain of the men’s Ultimate Frisbee team.

 

In an introductory meeting with SGA Advisor Steve Gallagher, Zach stated he is honored to serve as UNCSA’s Student Body President and is “looking forward to both continued excellence and many great changes as we approach the school’s 50th anniversary this coming year!”

 

UNCSA’s current Student Body President and 4th year Filmmaking student, Joseph Blankinship, has faithfully served UNCSA this year and his term will conclude at UNCSA’s Spring Commencement, at which time Zach will begin his service as Student Body President.

 

Students who would like to contact Zach with questions, ideas, etc. may do so via email at saffa.jz@artist.uncsa.edu.

If you have a need for students beyond the commencement dates above, you may process a Non-Student 301 that starts after their commencement date and ends on or before June 15, 2014. It MUST be a separate 301 than the initial Student 301.

 

We have also updated the website to include the 2014 Bi-Weekly Payroll Calendar. It can be found at the following address: http://www.uncsa.edu/administration/BannerPayroll.html

If you have any questions, I can always be reached at ioannouc@uncsa.edu or 770-3301.

 

Thank you,
