- A blog page inspired by "Nora and the Zombies," a short story by Andy Duncan, whose collection The Pottawatomie Giant & Other Stories the class read.

End of the Semester with Student Senate and College 101
Madrigal Singers Perform at President's House
Student Senate Christmas Dinner
College 101 Group Projects
The final two days of the term proved both busy and fun.
Thursday afternoon, for example, featured an excellent Christmas party at the president's house, and as usual Dan and Elaine Hanson organized quite a lot of tasty treats.
And a few of the Madrigal Singers--taking a break from practice for Friday night's big dinner--provided entertainment, along with David Norris at the piano.
A bit later that evening, I joined members of Student Senate for a dinner at Micki Willis's house; Micki and I serve as advisors for this talented and dedicated group of students.
I collected a few pictures from the Christmas parties and direct you to the Student Senate blog page that highlights many of the activities the group organized over the first half of the year.
Friday from around 10:45 to 12:00, my College 101 Class for Language Arts and Social Sciences joined with Ken Meints' class for the presentation of final projects for the term.
I describe these projects on my College 101 blog that features events over the course of the term and offer here links to the three my class presented:
The Art and Music group offered two very good Power Points about Peru State College and a video, through which the students argue for the need of a Designated Driver Program at PSC. I hope to post eventually this video.
