2010 Toy Drive 

Now thru Dec. 1st

Your Student Government Association is honored to sponsor the 2010 OLHCC Annual Toy Drive. We are excited to announce that this year’s toys will be donated to House of Ruth, Inc., a non-profit organization that helps hundreds of New Orleans area women and children find permanent housing and stability.

You can help us make this a special Christmas for our extra special children in the Algiers area. Simply bring your unopened toys (do not wrap them) to the OLHCC Student Life & Campus Ministry office. All toys are due by Wednesday morning, December 1st, at 10 a.m. We will deliver the gifts to the House of Ruth.

In honor of our annual Advent Prayer Service tradition, all toys will be placed under the Christmas tree during the tree lighting ceremony, at 12:30 p.m., in the courtyard by the Hurricane Café.

Remember, even the smallest gifts can bring the deepest joy to children who otherwise might not get anything.

For more information, please contact Student Life at 504-398-2110 or email Jennifer Tubwell at jtubwell@olhcc.edu.

Hello Everyone,

It has been awhile since the last time I wrote. I just wanted to let everyone know the movie night was fun. We will have one again in the spring. Fall Fest is coming up in November. The semester is moving quick now and I hope everyone has registered for their classes for next semester. We are about half way through the semester but don’t give up on your classes. You need to give 100% all the way till you are finished with your finals. Halloween is Saturday and I hope everyone has gotten their costumes. I am running late this year. I tried to go get my costume tonight but they didn’t have my size, so tomorrow after work I got to go shopping big time to find one. Hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend.

Lifelong Learning?

July 21, 2009 by

Lifelong learning?  Does that mean you never get to graduate?

Well, not exactly……….it just means that your education is never finished.  Ever.

I’m Jim Curry and I’m the director of the newly created Department of Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning.  Our goal in Lifelong Learning is to make sure that you start early in life to make a habit of always learning, always increasing your skills and knowledge.  It’s a habit that can bring you a lifetime of satisfaction, on and off the job, no matter which career path you choose.

And it starts very simply with a simple question:  What really interests you?  You can find no more satisfying path in life than the one that keeps your interest and keeps your desire to always learn more.

So let me know what really interests you.  What lights your fuse?  What is it in this world that you can’t ever find out enough about? …………………and we’ll see what we can do about bringing it here to OLHCC in the year ahead.

Good news

July 21, 2009 by

Well I got good news this weekend, my pre-proposal (which is a summary document) for my disseration was approved. This means that I can start writing my first 3 chapters. You would have thought I had received an Oscar I was so excited! I have been dreading working on the literature review, I’m feeling rather intimidated by it, so I think I might start there and tackle the hardest part first…does anyone have an opinion on whether you start with the easiest part first (to build confidence) or just do the hardest part first? Anyway, I’m going to dive right in on it!
