Hello LC Hornets!!! I think spring has sprung and that the sun has flown the coop. We have sent out search parties to look for her but we have heard nothing back from them. We hope that they can locate the sun and get her back here in time for the weekend. It would be nice if she could stay longer than a day, but I suppose you can only ask but so much of the sun! So let’s get to our updates of the day before things cloud up. (Get it…cloud up…so funny!)
Senior Day!!! This weekend the Softball , Men’s Lacrosse, and Women’s Lacrosse will all honor their seniors. Contrary to D1 sports, we are not a one and done place! More like 4 and out the door! (i.e. graduation door that is!!) So come out and honor our seniors!!! (And see us win too!)
Just when you thought March Madness was over, our alum Joe Sancio is still taking votes so his alumni basketball team can make the tournament. Click here and be a part of our Hornet Pride! http://www.thetournament.com/teams/lynchburg-college-club-basketball
Friday April 17th Is the National Day of Silence. This day seeks to highlight the plight that many members of the LBGT community feel in that they cannot express who they really are. Students participating in this event will have a flyer that they will hand to you to explain their silence. Please give them your support so that one day we can have a National Day of Shout Outs!
Have you ever seen a scrum??? Well, sometimes it’s better to see one than to actually be in one, especially if you have a bad back like me. At any rate, if you feel a need to see a scrum, come check out our Rugby Club. They will be playing, kicking, scratching, grabbing, tackling, and yes, scrumming on Saturday! Lynchburg Rugby will be playing UVA Rugby at 12:00 p.m. at 582 Leesville Road, Lynchburg for the last game of the season. Scrum on dude!!!
Remember those bubble sheets you use to do for course evals? First year students wouldn’t remember them at all, but the rest of you probably do. Well LC has decide to join the 21st century, save over three acres of trees, and go with a wild a crazy idea of….wait for it….ON LINE COURSE EVALUATIONS!!! Yes, isn’t it just crazy!!! I mean what will they think of next… lights that turn off when no one is in the room??? At any rate, go to your MyLC and complete these evaluations. They are critical to becoming a better learning community!
Many thanks to the 130 volunteers and Tevin Ware for hosting the LC Special Olympics for 55 athletes last weekend! By all reports, the athletes had a great day and received a warm LC welcome and continual support and encouragement!
And lastly, don’t forget Relay for Life! If you aren’t careful, you’ll find yourself walking around the Dell at 3:00 in the morning freezing to death wondering where are all the Relay Teams and participants. Well silly, the relay is now in the day! Faculty and Staff, please bring your families out and take a lap or two! Opening Ceremony is at 10:00 am, Saturday, April 18!!! Let’s walk for all those who fought and continue to fight this terrible disease in hopes that someday we will take hold a Victory Relay because we have cancer beaten! It’ll see you out there walking or at the grill serving up my famous hotdogs!
Boy, I sure wish there was something going on this weekend???
