Student Services/Fin. Aid (Billi Hornbeck)__Congratulations to Ms. Wanda Fields, she is the 2011 Oglala Lakota College Student of the Year! Wanda is from the He Sapa College Center in Rapid City, a freshman majoring in Social Science. She will represent OLC at the AIHEC Student Congress conference in April.
Woksape Tipi (LaVera Rose)___The library homepage will have links to student information by Friday of this week. Students need to be aware that they are responsible for any materials borrowed from the library. If materials are lost or if they are not returned your name will be sent to the Registrar’s Office and holds will be placed on your grades and financial aid. Don’t forget that the library at Piya Wiconi is now open until 8:00pm on Tuesdays. We look forward to assisting you this semester!
Applied Science (Doug Noyes)___Check out the photo of the first ever automotive class!
We are starting to get a lot of questions so here are some answers to a few FAQs. (1) How do I register for Automotive? Answer. Enrollment in Automotive is limited to 14 students. To get in you must meet with one of the instructors and take a test. You must also have passed 093 English and Math to be admitted. Because this is the first semester you can be concurrently enrolled but must complete it this semester. You will be told as soon as possible if you have been accepted and the instructors will register you in Jenzebar. (2) When and where do they meet? Answer. Automotive will meet from 9 to 4 Monday through Friday. The Automotive Program building is still being completed in Kyle so this semester classes will be held in the Applied science Building at Piya Wiconi. Students will not be released to attend other classes. That means enrolled students can take night or weekend classes but nothing else. (3) Can I get a stipend? Answer. Stipends will be paid to second semester students only. Budget issues have limited the number of stipends available and no new students into Applied Science will receive one. I can be reached at 455-6076 or my cell 391-1718 and e-mail. Or try email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for help also. Thanks.
Notes from the Editor: Great News! It is so very good to see Paul Cedar Face (Applied Science) and Theresa Bettelyoun (Library) well on the road to recovery after their surgeries. Best wishes to you both for a healthy New Year. Pearl Cottier (LaCreek CC) is home and recovering from her surgery. She is already trying to go to the office for a few hours. Her daughters may have to threaten to handcuff her to her bed for a few days. What a dedicated and wild woman!
Pilamaya to the maintenance/grounds keepers for keeping the sidewalks and the rest of the Piya Wiconi campus shoveled and plowed. (Alan Brunsch is the Director of Maintenance.) I just might make it to the first day of Spring without falling.
Did you know? I heard from several sources that OLC was on Thursday’s TV show Jeopardy. The category was colleges and universities and what State they were in. The answer was Black Hills State and Oglala Lakota College & the player answered w/South Dakota. And, surprisingly the host (Alex) pronounced Oglala Lakota correctly. How great is that!
