All proceeds from this 5k will support the Rutland Community Cupboard, reminding us how important donations and volunteerism are this holiday season. Wear your warmest winter layers, and don’t forget those Christmas sweaters, because the event includes an ugly sweater contest as well.
Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the 5K starts at 10 a.m. This pet-friendly event will cost $10 in advance. The cost is $10 and two canned goods or $15 at the event, and youth 16 and younger can participate for free. Free refreshments, including hot cocoa, will be available.

CSJ is considering offering an interdisciplinary course (History/English) on World War I. This course would be offered in the spring of 2015 and would include a 7-10 day field trip to Europe to visit sites related to the history of the war. Tuition for this course (including the field trip) would likely range from $3000-$4000, but students may apply for financial aid to cover the costs. We are trying to measure student interest in such a course, and we would greatly appreciate if you would fill out and return the brief survey. Thank you for your time and input.

The last day to register for the Spring 2014 semester without a late fee is Dec. 13. After this date a $50 late fee will be charged to the student’s account.
