Connors Grad Named Hites Scholar http://connorsstate.edu/connors-grad-named-hites-scholar/ http://connorsstate.edu/connors-grad-named-hites-scholar/#comments Fri, 22 Aug 2014 17:46:49 +0000 http://connorsstate.edu/?p=6661 Hites ScholarTen two-year college students have been named recipients of the 2014 Phi Theta Kappa Hites Transfer Scholarship, receiving a total of $75,000 to assist in the attainment of baccalaureate degrees. Among the winners is Stacey Dawes of Connors’ Phi Theta Kappa Mu Chi Chapter. Dawes plans to attend Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

“We are beyond proud of Ms. Dawes,” said CSC President Dr. Tim Faltyn. “She was an outstanding student and we are honored to call her part of the Connors State College family.”

Scholarships of $7,500 each were awarded to 10 students based on applications submitted by members. Students enrolled in associate degree programs and eligible to transfer to a regionally accredited baccalaureate degree-granting senior institution in the fall of 2014 were eligible to apply. Judges reviewed and scored applications for academic rigor, engagement, and leadership. The 2014 Hites Transfer Scholars were selected from more than 2,200 applicants.

“When the Hites Foundation and Phi Theta Kappa joined together a few short years ago to take the initial steps toward establishing the endowment, none of us anticipated the severity of today’s economic challenges facing both students and colleges,” said Phi Theta Kappa’s Executive Director Dr. Rod Risley. “The Hites Transfer Scholarships are helping to meet a need that becomes more crucial every day – helping our students follow through on their commitment to complete by providing financial assistance to make earning a baccalaureate degree possible. We are grateful for our partnership, and we congratulate these 2014 Hites Transfer Scholarship recipients.”

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is the largest honor society in higher education with 1,285 chapters on college campuses in all 50 of the United States, plus Canada, Germany, the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the British Virgin Islands, the United Arab Emirates and U.S. territorial possessions.  More than 2.5 million students have been inducted since its founding in 1918, with approximately 135,000 students inducted annually.

Connors Celebrates Week of Welcome http://connorsstate.edu/connors-celebreates-week-of-welcome/ http://connorsstate.edu/connors-celebreates-week-of-welcome/#comments Fri, 22 Aug 2014 17:17:59 +0000 http://connorsstate.edu/?p=6645 Week of Welcome

The Connors State College Office of Student Activities kicked off the new school year with “Week of Welcome” (WOW), two weeks filled with exciting, fun and educational activities. Week one was a huge success!  Each event aimed to unite students and faculty and to help new students settle into college life. WOW began on Move-In Day, when hundreds of students and their families ascended on the college dorms to meet their roommates and settle into their new homes.

Welcome Back Luau

On the evening of Move In Day, students were treated to a Welcome Back Luau at Millers Crossing dorms. Many participated in the cookout, limbo contest, cardboard boat race, watermelon eating contest and outdoor movie.

“The Welcome Back Luau was a great way to greet our students and offered them some fun activities after a hard day of moving,” said CSC President Dr. Tim Faltyn.

DUI Go-Karts

Connors State College students recently got the chance to experience what it is like to drive and walk a straight line under the influence of alcohol thanks to specially designed goggles that emulate the effects of delayed motor skills.

Students attempted to drive a go kart through an obstacle course while wearing the goggles. They were then asked to walk a straight line by Connors’ Chief of Police James Mendenhall. While the results of both provided hilarious entertainment the seriousness of driving under the influence was not lost on the students.

 Call of Duty: Ghosts Tournament

Several students gathered together at the Connors State College Fine Arts Auditorium to compete in a Call of Duty: Ghosts tournament on Tuesday, Aug. 19.

“A video game tournament is not a huge event,” said Student Activities Coordinator, Cody Clovis, “but it provides an opportunity for students to hang out and interact with one another. Sometimes it’s the smaller, more interment events that allow students to really get to know one another.”

Winners of the tournament were Jordan Gresham and Colt Taylor.

 Welcome Back Bash

The CSC campus came alive once again with the Welcome Back Bash held Wed. night, Aug. 20, on the Fine Arts lawn in Warner. Once again the Office of Student Activities hosted a cookout and students enjoyed the music of the live band Livin’ Country. The event was complete with informational booths about CSC organizations, free giveaways, and yes, even live snakes!

 Grocery BINGO

Several students gathered in the Cafeteria at noon, on Thurs., Aug. 21, not to eat lunch as one might expect, but to play several rounds of grocery bingo.  The Grocery Bingo winners chose from a wide variety of grocery items to take to their dorms.

 

“Overall I think Week of Welcome went great,” said Student Services Director, Mike Jackson. “I have really enjoyed all of the events and interacting with the students and I believe they enjoyed it as well. It was a great way to start what I believe will be a great semester.”
