Study Abroad Interest Meeting
All A+D students need to complete the following questionnaire ASAP if you have not taken a study abroad trip (or if you have completed a trip and would like to participate in additional trips). Seniors graduating in December 2021 or May 2022 do not need to complete this survey if you are exempt from completing the study abroad requirement. The study abroad scholarship committee will be meeting next week to determine award amounts for the Spring 2022 New York trip.

We have informational meetings about scholarships every semester so be looking for emails if you are interested in attending. You may also direct questions to the A&D office. The following is the application Process:
Complete the ACU general scholarship application at: acu.academicworks.com
Complete the A&D Study Abroad Scholarship Application at: forms.gle/nSpDjctQowTuuKRE9
Deadline for Applications: November 8th. Late applications may be considered the following year. After the application deadline, a small committee of faculty will review the applications and schedule one-on-one meetings with a selected number of applicants. By mid-November, applicants should receive notice of final scholarship decisions.
Ethnos Culture Show
The International Students Association’s BIGGEST culture show of the year is on November 20, 2021. Tickets are on sale now. Several Art + Design students are in the show this year and would love your support in attending. Don’t delay – buy your tickets today! Use the QR code on the flyer to purchase your tickets.
Snackin’ in the Lounge
You may have noticed that we’ve added some snacks to the student lounge (room next to Kara’s office on the first floor). We ask that you please be considerate of other students and only take what you need at the time. The first day the snacks were put out, they were completely cleared out by the next morning. The snacks are not there to restock your dorm/apartment/house. Please take in moderation as needed. If you are able to make a donation for the snacks you take, you may leave it in the blue dish on the cabinet by the snacks. We hope this will help you and be a nice treat at times! Comments and suggestions are definitely welcome as we try out this new idea.
A&D Departmental Chapel
Join us for the A+D chapel series Juxtaposition. We meet every Thursday at 11 am. Chapel is held in the Art History room (DM 141). All A+D majors are encouraged to attend, all ACU students are welcome to attend.
First Year Student One-on-One’s
First year students, please click on the blue “You Can Book Me” link YouCanBookMe and it will take you to my calendar. Select an appointment time for next week, November 1-5, that works for your schedule. I would like to have 1-on-1 appointments to orient you to important things in the department. Thank you to those who have already done it and I look forward to chatting with the rest of you.
Videographer Job Opportunity
Below is an ad from the CEO from Right Hand Media (RHM). RHM is an agency-model business on campus that focuses on content and strategy development. They are currently hiring for a videographer. Click on the ad for additional information.
Please be sure that you are using the large format printer only for A+D projects and only if your print job can not be done on another printer in the building. A new printer has been added to the print room for all of your more traditional printing needs. The smaller printer in room 207 that keeps jamming has also been replaced. With the addition of these 2 printers, you should have better options for printing. Please send me an email or shoot me a text anytime you are having trouble with a printer so that we can keep everything in working order for you.
Mask Reminder (Update and Corrections)
Most Art+Design classes still have a mask requirement. Unless your professor instructs you otherwise, please assume that this is still the case. A number of spaces, such as the Art Office also have a mask requirement. Please pay attention to signage and if you are unsure, ask your professor.
Lockers are available on the 2nd and 3rd floor for all students enrolled in art classes. If you would like a locker for storage of your supplies and projects, please come by the A+D office or send an email to email@example.com to reserve one in your name. All unclaimed lockers will be emptied periodically throughout the year.
Blog and Student Handbook
…an answer to all of your A+D questions – a very important resource for all art majors. Click this link to go directly to the blog: acuartanddesign.com. Be sure to check out the Student Handbook under the Resources section of the blog. The link to the blog is also included in my signature in all emails that I send out. I will go over this blog in detail with all first year A+D students during our one-on-one appointments in September. (You’ll hear more about the one-on-one’s in a few weeks.)
