It's time for our quarterly awards ceremony recognizing excellence in education. There are 3 lists that students can achieve recognition for which are as follows.

Honor Roll - 3.5 & up G.P.A.
Dean's list - 3.8 - 3.99 G.P.A.
President List - 4.00 - G.P.A.

These awards are handed out 4 times per year so come to the awards ceremony to be presented with your award.

Day students - ceremony is at 11:00 a.m. in the auditorium
Night students - 7:00 in the auditorium.

You must have attended 3 consecutive mods to be eligible for any of these awards. The lists are posted outside of the Student Services office if you have any questions. Even if you are not receiving an award, please come and support your classmates.

School starts Monday, July 20th

If this is a newsflash to you - you are in grave danger of being dropped from school for non-attendance! If you do not attend your classes in the first week of the module - YOU WILL BE DROPPED FROM SCHOOL!

So what does this mean to you? It means that you are not enrolled in school any longer, are in danger of losing your school loans and funding AND that your computer must be returned immediately because it is on loan to you as long as you are a student! NOT GREAT! You can come back to school the following module if your Associate Dean (me) allows you back in school and your financial aid is all squared away. But it is at the discretion of the school if we want you back as a student - so don't put yourself in that position.

School starts every 4 weeks - no breaks - no exceptions. As the module is ending, check your schedule in Angel to see if your classes are scheduled. If they are late posting, don't assume you don't have a class. Be pro-active - come to the campus to double-check. Every module in the 2nd week, I get a list of students that were dropped due to non-attendance - don't be on that list!

In other news - the new module is under way and classes are going well so far. See the previous post for a list of what is being taught on-ground starting yesterday.

Happy Designing!

Last Week of School - Hang in There!

So, it's the middle of summer and IT'S HOT OUT THERE!! It's natural this time of year to want to lay in the sun and forget about work and school while you work on your tan. This is the final week of this module so I encourage all of you to stick with it and get your homework done. Which reminds me, we do this again starting next week - July 20th.

Classes taught on ground at the Salt Lake Campus:

Day classes
1st period - DES 104 - Photoshop Basics - Peter Shultz
2nd period - DES 241 - Web Design Basics - Brad Joiner

Night classes

5th period - DES 242 - Logo & Identity Design - Brad Joiner
5th period - DES 250 - Portfolio Design - Jenny Rhodes

These are on ground classes so online schedules will vary. You are always welcome to audit classes if you need to review any material.

Also - CS4 is available on campus from either myself or Sean Pace.
