djwudi: Flickr/LJ Group Admins Wanted

Just on the off chance someone still pays attention to this group (probably partly my fault, I haven't exactly taken an active role in admin-ing things around here)...

I'm going to be graduating and moving on from NSCC at the end of this quarter. As such, it makes more sense for this group and the NSCC Flickr group to have an admin that's at or actively involved with NSCC in some way. Feel free to drop me a note here or on the Flickr thread if you'd be interested in taking up the reins for either or both of these groups.

Thanks!

seattlejo: (no subject)

So... The polaris is sunk, we don't have  a student government  How is it that those of us on campus can have  a voice? And any suggestions for an evening student who wants to be involved and vocal at times  other then 1-4  in the afternoon on a weekday?

tygerli1y: math teachers

Anyone here ever taken either D. Li or H. Li for math? I've only heard bad things, but their classes are the only ones that fit with my schedule for winter quarter. I figured the more opinions I hear, the better. Thanks!

(Just checked them out on ratemyprofessors.com... the comments are awfully polarized! Seems people either love them or hate them.)

Please welcome djwudi as a new moderator! He's done a much better job than I over the last year and a half of keeping us posted about what's going on around campus. I wish I could be more involved, but other obligations have gotten in the way.

I'm confident he will do great things. :)

djwudi: NSCC made the Seattle PI...

…pity it wasn’t for a better reason, though.

Seattle PI: Community colleges losing their student leaders

Article excerpt under cut...Collapse )

It’s not the content that surprises me — I already knew about the Student Government collapse — it’s that it made it into the PI.

For a Community College, we sure don’t have much sense of community, do we? The student government collapses (former VP Kikii Park gives an insider’s view of the collapse in the Polaris), what student activites there are are generally fairly poorly attended, the Polaris student paper may be going under, and while I’ve occasionally tried to pimp them out, none of the online communities I know of for NSCC (this LJ community, the MySpace community, or the Flickr group) ever seem to get much traffic at all.

On the off chance that anyone’s actually even paying attention to this community anymore…any ideas? Thoughts? Comments?

Or am I the only one out there that finds this to be a bit of a bummer?

djwudi: The Clothesline Project

Today's the last day to see the Clothesline Project display in the Baxter Center near the cafeteria. Here's my shots of some of the display if you can't make it in person...

djwudi: NorthSpeaks.com

Anybody taken a look at this yet? It was mentioned in the latest Polaris, and they've got 'NorthSpeaks.com' stickers (or flyers, or something) next to the library doors.

This is your blog - your chance to be seen and heard about the topics important to us as students, faculty and staff of NSCC.
