Common Courtesy

Campus Activities, Thoughts No Comments »

I use the student union fairly often. Maybe twenty minutes on Monday, a couple of hours on Wednesday. I think most students do! The student union is a nice place to gather, after all. It has food (mmm, sustenance!), it has friends, and there is a lot of space.

However, there’s always that one table… thats just a mess. Its loud and kind of trashed and not very fun to be around for the rest of us. It reminds me of these amusing signs stashed all over the art building, actually. “Your mother doesn’t work here, clean up your mess!!” Cute, huh? And I mean, even if we were at home, we’re all adults here. We know how to pick up after ourselves. :)

So, I’d just like to bring up a friendly reminder for common courtesy. We’d all like to enjoy what the student union has to offer, and a lot of people go in and out of this building. I just wanted to make a few suggestions.

Thats really the basics of it! Its doesn’t take any time out of your day to be courteous to everybody else. :D After all, treat others the way you want to be treated! Along the lines of the student union, I was wondering who uses the student union, and for what? It is a hang out, or just a place for a meal. Do you hole up and game on your laptop, or are you writing a paper? Let us know in an email to studentblog@scf.edu!

Aria Concert

Campus Activities, Uncategorized, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

You know what your plans for the day should include?

Attending SCF’s Aria concert tonight! At 8:00 pm in the Neel auditorium, lots of SCF students will be performing some beautiful pieces of music. The main focus (if you couldn’t guess from the name) are aria’s from famous operas (some more famous ones being The Marriage of Figaro and The Magic Flute). Many pieces will be accompanied with live music and over-all I think the show is going to turn out great!

I’d really like to go, but unfortunately I found out after I’d already made other plans. Basically, it sucks to be me, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t go and enjoy it for me! ;) Tickets for admission will probably be around $8, and students are half-off! I hope you have a good time (because you’re going, right?) and please let me know what songs were your favorites! Our email is studentblog@scf.edu.

Student Art Gallery

Campus Activities No Comments »

If you’re an art student, you probably already know about this…

The student art gallery is opening next Friday!

Today was the last day to submit your pieces, but for anybody who is only interested in looking, have no fears, your time has not past. I submitted three pieces of my own and while doing so I got a glimpse at some of the fantastic things made by SCF students! I really hope everybody takes the time to check out the artwork that was submitted. There were some fabulous paintings and pencil drawings, lovely photography, and I was really blown away by the 3D pieces!!

If you’re interested in checking this out (which you really, really should be), the art gallery is connected to the Neel Performing Arts Center, on the side next to the Social Studies building.  If you need any more help finding the lovely art gallery, send us an email at studentblog@scf.edu.

Meanwhile, I have to skidaddle and work on my history paper. @__@ Time really flies, I can’t believe there’s pretty much a month left until the semester is over!!

Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks!

Spring Break & Spring Fling

Campus Activities No Comments »

Aahh, vacation, you leave us so quickly.

Alas, the time has come for classes to resume. I already miss my dear bed and my video games and my books. And my fish, I did a lot of betta fish things over break. But those days are over! For a couple more months, at least. For anybody getting too nostalgic for our mini-vacation, the school did through the Spring Fling!

Did any of you attend this? It was a really fun event! I wasn’t able to stay for the whole thing because of classes, but I caught two of their live music performances. The first one I caught was the Jazz Band, which was fantastic. It was only instrumental, they had a couple of pieces where there was singing. I sadly missed the names of the singers, but they sounded great. While Jazz Band was performing, I went ahead and got one of the free funnel cakes. It was (thankfully!!) nice and small. Tasty fair food in more manageable portions, very good. I had to leave for class after the Jazz Band packed up, but when I returned there was a rock band playing. They did some covers and some original pieces, all of which sounded awesome. I’m glad I was able to visit this! I was with friends so I didn’t really get around to the booths, but there were a lot of cool things set-up. For example, you could make your own flip-flops.

And to top it all off, the Bloodmobile was at the school as well!

I hope you guys were able to visit at least one of these places! If you did, tell us your favorite part in an email to studentblog@scf.edu, we’d love to hear from you!

Concerts

Wow, there are a lot of concerts this week! Three that I know of. If anybody is taking Music Appreciation, like myself, you might want to check some of these out and get those concert reports out of the way. :D

  1. Monday night at 7, in the Holly Hall (I believe), where the Sarasota Youth Orchestra rehearses, they will be having a concert

    tonight. I’m excited to go because my cousin is performing in it! I’m not sure if tickests cost anything.

  2. Tuesday night at 8, Neel Auditorium at SCF! I believe its the wind ensembles that are playing then? Either way, the experience is sure to be fantastic. $4 for students, $8 for not-students.
  3. Thursday night at 8, Neel Auditorium at SCF. The orchestra will be performing that night. As someone who used to play with the orchestra, I’d really like to make it to this one. $4 for students, $8 for not-students.

Sadly, I have other obligations later in the week and will only be going to the on Monday. Oh well! I’ve heard great things about the Sarasota Youth Orchestra, and this is my first time attending any of their performances. I look forward to it, and I hope I see some of you there! If you know any upcoming concerts, specifically ones leaning towards big band, classical, or jazz, please let us know in an email to studentblog@scf.edu.

Farmers’ Market

Campus Activities, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

Howdy y’all! Hope you are doing great on such a lovely day. Today the blog will be about 10,000 words, mostly informational, and super boring!!

I kid. However, I do want to give you some information! For those of you who don’t know, on the south side of the Bradenton campus, between buildings 8 and 9 there is a Farmers Market. It’s every Wednesday from 10AM-2PM, and it’s great! Not only is there a wide variety of greens to choose from, a great bonus is that it’s all grown locally. That means your dollar stays right here, and doesn’t go overseas. It’s important to keep our local vendors local, and grabbing up some of these veggies is a great way to do so.

As I understand it, all of the food is local, some is hydroponically grown, and some organically.  They also have honey, bread, pasta, cookies, muffins, and more! All grown right here. It’s a win-win situation, because you even earn Wellness Points for every dollar spent! How great is that?

Give me a shout if you see me there! Or, even if you don’t, you can give me a shout over email. studentblog@scf.edu

Reflection Pond

Campus Activities, Classes, Thoughts, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

How many of you knew out SCF’s reflection pond?

Its pretty out of the way, snuggled between two parking lots and the Neel Auditorium, and it is a place I think everybody should check out. I have a slightly annoying habit of setting my classes up so that there is at least one day a week where I am on campus all day. But it didn’t take me long to realize that this wasn’t necessarily a bad thing!

There are a lot of things to do on campus. For example, this semester my on campus day is a Wednesday. Did you know about the Farmer’s Market? I’ve mentioned it before, but I’d like to tell you about it in a little more detail. There are multiple booths set-up near the library and social studies buildings. They sell all sorts of thing! There’s a raw booth, a booth that sells snacks and meal replacements for anybody feeling adventurous and willing to try eating nothing but raw food (a very healthy choice, if one manages it properly!). There’s another one that sells Mediterranean food, and another that sells baked goods.

You can even purchase naturally made body products and essential oils at one of the booths. Its a very nice experience.

For anybody stuck on campus around lunch time on a Wednesday, how about you try something new? Drop by one of the food booths, grab something to eat and head on over to the relfection pond. There are picnic tables and the wifi reaches out there. You can watch some of the geese that live on our campus and watch the snake birds and the ducks. You might even come across some ducklings.

Have you been out to the reflection pond? Or checked out the Farmer’s Market? Share your experience with us, our email is studentblog@scf.edu!

“Blithe Spirit”

Campus Activities, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

This morning as I walked into my ENC 1102 class, I overheard a fellow student talking about a play that he had just seen the night prior. He and the teacher were talking about it, and it sort of peaked my interest, so I chimed in. I asked what they were talking about, and they told me about a play that was very interesting. The name of the play is “Blithe Spirit” and it was apparently outstanding. I cannot say for sure, as I did not personally see it. (Heck.. I didn’t even know about it until today.) But, I cannot imagine it was anything less than amazing, coming from the Manatees. =]

Anyway, I did some research, and found out that it is still being performed, so if you would like to see it, it is still on from Thursday-Saturday (23-25) in the David S. and Anne V. Howard Studio Theatre, at the Bradenton Campus at 8pm. A matinee performance is  also scheduled at 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 19. Here is a brief description of the play:

Written by Noel Coward, “Blithe Spirit” is a comedy about a novelist who invites a medium to conduct a séance, which goes awry with hilarious results.

The SCF production is directed by Ken Erickson Jr., director of SCF’s Theatre Program. Cast members include SCF students William Fisher as Charles, Sally Fint as Ruth, Rebecca Moore as Madame Arcati, Rachel Xavier as Elvira, and Andrew Bins as Dr. Bradman. Madeline Heath and Hannah Zachowski will alternate in the roles of Mrs. Bradman and Edith, the maid.

For the general public, admission into the play is $10. For all of the Manatees interested, admission is $5 if you have your student I.D. Tickets are on sale now in the Neel Performing Arts Center box office, which is open from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. For more information, call 941-752-5252.

Shoot me an email and let me know what your thoughts are on this play! studentblog@scf.edu

Friendly Reminder

Campus Activities, Classes, Coursework, Uncategorized No Comments »

Howdy everyone!

Hope you are well. I know this week has been a bit stressful for me personally, I had a math test to take on Wednesday, and to be honest I was worried. I studied, but still didn’t feel very confident I would do well. Luckily, the test wasn’t as bad as I had expected, (Don’t tell my professor!!) and I think I did well. Time will soon tell.

Anyway.. Just a friendly reminder, in the student planners it says Friday there won’t be classes unless they are after 4 p.m. and I wanted to let you all know that this is false information. They moved the date back to March 2nd, so this Friday there ARE CLASSES!! Don’t be fooled by your planner. It was printed during the summer, and they changed the date post summer -(Obviously..LOL.)- so the date in it is incorrect. Be sure to mark March 2nd as the new date!

Hope you have a great week! Go Manatees!
