Things are Heating Up

A month has gone by and I feel exhausted by it all already. It does not help taking on multiple literature courses, participating in a magazine, being president of a club, and other things. I wish the school handed out vacation time to students. I could use one. That’s all part of life, though, right?

There are a few exciting things happening in the next week. On Thursday on the Venice Campus, February 18th, my very own club, Swamp Scribes, will be hosting a Poetry Reading in the Student Union at 7pm. The turnout last semester was incredible. Not once did we have less than 45 people attend, and the least amount of people who read was 23. Those are incredible numbers compared to things I have seen in the past. Some literary professors are offering extra credit for someone to read their own poetry, check with yours to determine if that is true of your professor. If you wish to read, there will be a sign-up sheet at the event.

On Friday, February 19th, the Venice Provost, Darlene Wedler-Johnson, is holding a Venice Campus Green Team Meeting from 2-3pm in the Selby Room. If you do not know where the Selby Room is, it is the very large room on the first floor of the 800 building. It located directly in the center. Also on this day is another ICC (Inter Club Counsel) meeting at 12pm. If you are part of a club and would like to represent your club, the meeting will be held in room 847.

Until February 26th, building 300 in Venice is holding a Women Contemporary Artist Juried Exhibit. It is free to take a look and runs all day (8am to 9pm). For those interested in art, this is an ideal event to attend, so be sure you make it in before it is over.

There have been reports of sightings at SCF of Dracula. To let everyone know, these reports are true. Dracula has come to the college. On February 19th, 20th, 26th, and 27th, Dracula will be performed by the theatre department in Bradenton. The shows begin at 8pm and cost $10 for general admission, and $5 for students. On the 21st, and 28th at 2pm, there will be a matinee. For more information, visit the SCF calendar from the homepage.
