News and Events for the week of October 8

Good Monday Morning:

A little rain last week reminds us that summer is over and we are well into our fall semester. We are all a buzz with students, faculty and staff working to have a successful fall term. As I watched the end of a 60 Minutes segment last night, author of The Fault in Our Stars, shared this as he ended his interview: DFTBA – Don’t Forget To Be Awesome. I loved it!

And we have a busy week ahead.

New Student-Centered Funding Formula

I am inviting all who wish to attend a presentation given by Vice Chancellor Dr. Ryan Corner on the new Student-Centered Funding Formula. The presentation will take place this Tuesday, October 9  in the Student Union’s multi-purpose room on the 3rd floor from 12:45pm to 2pm. I encourage you to attend, so I am allowing offices where all employees want to attend to close between 12:30pm and 2:15pm. Be sure to put a note up about any office closure.

LACC Pop-up Food Bank

Every Monday, our new pop-up food bank opens to students. Registered LACC students in need can pick up fruits, vegetables, drinks, dry goods and snacks in front of the student union from 11am until all the food is gone.

That is right.

To receive a flu shot, students need to bring their student ID card and bring proof of paid health fees. Flu shots will be given in the Health and Wellness Center, Room 120, in the Student Services Building.
