Board of Regents Meeting on Campus
On Friday, November 15, we will be hosting the regular meeting of the State Board of Regents. Governor Herbert will be joining them for part of the day. As you know, this is our governing board, and having them on campus is a great opportunity for them to personally experience the atmosphere of Snow College. Meetings will be held in the Noyes Building and Huntsman Library. An agenda is available at http://higheredutah.org/agendas/.
On Friday morning, the parking lot directly east of the Huntsman Library will be reserved for our guests traveling to campus for the day.
Each non-student employee should again plan to receive a Christmas turkey this year. We’re told most employees prefer the whole bird, but it has also been suggested that we offer the sweetheart roasts as well. And, so, whole birds will be ordered for everyone unless you send Marci or Patsy an email by December 1 and indicate you prefer a sweetheart roast or vegetarian option.
In Ephraim, turkeys will be distributed after the staff Christmas party (approximately 1:30) on December 12) in the Student Center and in the Plaza on December 11 from 11-1:00. In Richfield, employees can pick up their turkeys after the Christmas party on December 10.
Again, let Patsy or Marci know if you would like to break the tradition of the whole bird and try another product.
125th Anniversary Kick Off and Buster's Adventures
As we continue through our anniversary year, we hope you are proud to be a Snow College badger. There are a few ongoing activities and upcoming events. Details are below:
Refillable stadium cups were distributed to all employees during Fall Assembly. If you did not receive one, please stop by the front desk in the Noyes Building.
Mini Buster the Badgers are available to take on adventures with you. We just ask that you snap a photo of him on your trip. It will be fun to see where he travels this year. So far, he’s been to some pretty exotic places.
Plans for a concert (featuring Kurt Bestor and our music students) are underway for the first part of May. More details and information at www.snow.edu/125.
As you may know, the College Council has been discussing shared governance. A lot of time has been spent researching different models, and an Evergreen Valley College seems to be one of the best. Their model is being used as a starting point for us, and it will be modified as needed. Your comments are welcome and should be sent to your vice president. There has apparently been some confusion as to which Evergreen institution is being used.
