There was an article in the newspaper a few weeks ago about an Honor Society induction in Bradenton for SCF. I thought, “Honor society? What honor society? And why aren’t I a part of it?” After poking around for awhile, I found the club advisor of the Alpha Mu Upsilon (honor society chapter in

Venice) and she answered my questions.
Having no knowledge of those Greek lettered clubs that exist on every college campus, I came to find out you must be invited into the honor society. However, being invited relies on your academic status of a 3.5GPA and at least 12 credit hours taken at SCF.
The biggest perk for inductees is scholarships available only to members! The honor society is part of a nationwide organization named Phi Theta Kappa. This Spring a total of 41 students were inducted. Those students can stay in the club and even transfer to a PTK in their university!
After finding this information out, I had a chat with two girls who are members of PTK! They said it was a wonderful experience to offer community help, and go on trips. In fact, they’d just arrived back from a PTK internation trip to Orlando, where the “chapter was awarded a 5-Star Chapter Development Award for participation…” (Stephanie Cook, club advisor). The two members also went on to say the list of possible inductees had been messed up the last two years. That’s when I said, “Ohh, that explains why I wasn’t invited!” My advice to you, if you want to participate is to get in touch with Stephanie Cook and find out if you’re eligible for next semester.

Excellent News and a Slam

Over the weekend I received some excellent news in the mail in the form of an invitation. I was invited to the Honors Convocation on April 30th to

receive an award. I knew who was behind my nomination, so upon asking the professor who nominated me, all he said was, ‘It’s to acknowledge your efforts to expand literature. Make sure you are there, and try to bring Kelly; I’ll be there too.’

Should I go?

While talking about literature, I’d like to say some things about my fellow students and the Slam coming up this Thursday at 7 pm in the Selby room of the Venice Campus.

There are some extremely good poets on campus this year. The poetry readings have been such a treat for the audience and me especially. Even though I am president of Swamp Scribes, I do not claim responsibility for the growth of participants this year. SCF had a major increase in enrollment, and there are more poets on campus this year than last. Also, when the economy is down and free food and entertainment is offered, who wouldn’t go? Those, I think, are the three main reasons why the poetry readings have increased to over 50 audience members, and at least 24 readers (32 at the last evening reading.) If you have not been to any of the poetry readings (and even if you have), you MUST come to the Slam. I hope many poets on our campus will compete against one another.

Slams are not for the faint of heart. If you read your poetry at a Slam event, YOU WILL BE JUDGED by your

peers. If you wish to compete, bring at least 5 poems to read. The Slam during the Fall brought in over 100 people in the audience. I wouldn’t mind topping that this semester. Slams are poetry readings that are designed to bring poetry back to the roots of the art form. It is not about written word, it is about spoken word. Slammers are graded based on their poem and their performance (reading) of the poem. I will be emceeing the

Brett Favre and a Fairival

Campus Activities, Clubs No Comments »

I have decided to cancel all plans today, save classes and work. Any other activities planned for today will have to reschedule. Today will be a catch-up day. I have been behind in my courses for a little bit now, and I have put off catching up for too long. Ugh, I think I’m going to play a game instead. I don’t want to do school work. We’ll see… So this must be what Brett Favre feels like…

ALL YOU CAN EAT PIZZA!! During Spring Fling (Wednesday, March 3rd), on the Venice Campus, SGA will be offering all you can eat pizza for $5 from 11.30 to 12.30. The money will be used for the Haitian Relief Fund. The money will be handed over to the Red Cross for proper disbursement of the funds raised.

Speaking of Spring Fling, the theme this year for the Venice Campus is a Fairival. If you have not figured it out already, it is a cross between a Fair and a Carnival. Clubs are free to advertisements their clubs as they wish – within the means of student conduct. Entertainment is going to be great: A live DJ, Rock Climbing,

Massive SpaceShip Slides, Obstacle Course, among others. We are having another ICC meeting this Friday at Noon, so more information might come from that meeting.

There is an Open House for the college and clubs on Tuesday, March 2nd, from 5-7pm. For the Venice Campus, this will take place in the Selby room in building 800.

Also, On Thursday, March 4th, there will be a School Tax Referendum debate in the Selby room at 11am. If you wish to learn more about, or debate the school tax referendum, then feel welcome to show up. If you wish to learn more about it before attending, go ahead and Google ‘Sarasota County School Tax Referendum.’ That should provide you with some formation on it. And please, be sure your source is credible.

Keep an eye out in the future for more exciting stuff. The students have some great ideas this year, and everyone should be able to easily find something they will enjoy. Is Flag Football still happening? I’ll try and find out. I know they have one today from 1-3 behind the amphitheatre on the Venice Campus. I will find out if it is going to continue. Money raised for Haiti so far: $668 (Venice Campus). Good job, everyone! Keep it up.

What, Exactly, is a Hermitage?

Campus Activities, Clubs No Comments »

I had the pleasure of a guest writer in one of my classes this week. Her name is Alice Pung and she is currently residing in a hermitage in Manasota Key. She had some amazing wisdom for other writers. She said to write everything down. Alice said if you don’t get out all the crap then you can’t get to the good stuff (this makes me think of layers in your mind with crap being the first).

Sometimes, or most of the time, I feel what I am writing is crap. Whether it’s for a short story, homework, or a paper. To be honest, I also feel more pressure to write well because I am an English major and I want to be a great writer. Then I stop. I realize we are all human, and we’re all still learning! I have also been told the first

To get to my main interest on Alice Pung (for this blog anyway) is where she is staying. She is at a hermitage. Apparently a hermitage is a beautiful building in which writers, painters, composers, etc. come to hermit themselves away. They spend all their time on their profession for a few weeks and pay back the community, like how Alice came and spoke to our class. Possibly you already knew what a hermitage was, or could have guessed from the root of the word. But I never knew we had one nearby! Hopefully more of the creative folks that visit will come and see us at SCF.

Charity walks/runs

Clubs No Comments »

In the past couple of months I have been a part of a few charity walks/runs and each one has been such an awesome experience! The first one was on October 3rd with SPARCC (Safe Place And Rape Crisis Center) it was a walk against domestic violence. It was a 3.5 mile walk in Sarasota over the John Ringling Bridge. My second was a 5k run on Halloween; it was at the MTI law enforcement academy in Lakewood Ranch. The proceeds went to help the academy students to be able to attend Skills USA. My most recent walk was on November 14th and I was able to attend with Phi Theta Kappa which was a cool experience because I was able to participate in something I love to do and be involved with

an organization at school at the same time. This walk was at New College in Sarasota it was 1.25 miles around a gorgeous neighborhood near New College. The turnout was great and 13,000 dollars was raised for the AIDS community in Manatee and Sarasota counties.

I guess you can say participating in charity walks has become a new hobby for me. I have found that they are a lot of fun, a good form of exercise, a great way to support different causes in your community and a great way to spend time with friends and meet new ones! I plan to keep being involved in charity walks and I would like to encourage you to get involved as well. You might suggest a charity walk as an idea to any clubs or organizations you are involved in. The morale at the walks is amazing and you feel great about yourself for being a part of them. I’ve found the easiest ways to find out about charity walks is to Google charity walks in Manatee/Sarasota County or to look around at local businesses. Businesses often have flyers hanging up with information about charity walks they support. I’m sure there will be a few to choose from with the holidays coming up!

So happy walking!

MCC Open House

Applying to SCF, Campus Activities, Clubs No Comments »

     There’s a very exciting event coming up that will interest future MCC students, as well as current students.  Both MCC Venice and Bradenton are holding an Open House!  There will be information available for future students to learn about the courses and programs at Manatee, as well as how to get enrolled.  Highlights on scholarships, grants and loans for students who qualify will also be accessible.
     The different clubs offered to students on each campus will also be there…clubs like creative writing, multi-cultural club or the progressive club.  These extra curricular actitivities are exciting ways for new students to meet others.  I didn’t get into a club on campus for a couple semesters because I feared I didn’t have the time to commit to one.  When in actuality, you don’t need to attend each and every meeting to remain a club member and participate in their events.  Plus, clubs are an excellent addition to resumes for your future University as well as an activity specified to your tastes.
     The Open House at MCC Venice is March third from 5-7pm in the Selby Room (bottom floor building 800).  The one at MCC Bradenton is February 24 from 5-7pm in the Student Union (building 14).

Helping people is thrilling.

Campus Activities, Clubs, Fall '08 No Comments »

MCC Venice is having a thrilling event next Saturday at 2pm(Oct. 25th), sponsored by the Pop Culture club. A large group of students are gathering together, dressed as zombies, to participate in the worldwide event “Thrill the World.” The goal is to help break the current world record of 1,722 people dancing to “Thriller” at the same time. Proceeds from the event will go to the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center in Sarasota, which helps domestic violence and rape victims.

example of how club events are both fun and help people at the same time. SPARCC is a great cause. It was an organization similar to SPARCC that helped my mom and I through tough times when we were victims of domestic violence.

I encourage everyone to go out and participate in dance fest. It’s going to be a blast!

In order to really have the MCC experience, you have to be involved in a club.  Clubs are a great way to get to know new people, learn leadership skills and participate in campus and community activities.  It’s also a great way to be able to explore new interests -without being graded on your progress.

For example, last year a professor encouraged me to join the Progressive Club.  I was a little hesitant because I didn’t know much about politics but I decided to join anyway.  As a member the first year my knowledge and interest grew.  Now I’m the president of the club!  I never would have imagined that I could come so far.  Now I have a real sense of accomplishment for all the things we’ve done as a club.  Plus being a club member looks good on your resume (and being president looks great) :)   I think that my active involvement had a lot to do with being accepted into several honors programs at private Universities. 

This year is very important for the Progressive Club because it is an election year. We are on a mission to educate students about the issues and encourage them to vote. 

On October 16th, the Progressive and Philosophy clubs will be hosting the movie “Freeheld,” which addresses Amendment 2 on the upcoming ballot.  This will be in the Selby room, 800 building, Venice campus at 7pm.  On the Bradenton Campus “Freeheld” will be shown in the Neel Performing Arts Center at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 21st.  These screenings are open to the public.  We encourage everyone to attend, regardless of where you stand on the “Marriage Protection Act” issue.

Of course not all the clubs on MCC are political.  We have a broad variety ranging from academic and business to the Kendo and Pop Culture clubs.  For a complete list of clubs, please check out  Links to the clubs will be on the left hand side.
