NEASC Informational Meeting

Next fall we will be visited by a team from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) who will be conducting a comprehensive evaluation of CSJ and all of its programs for accreditation purposes.  This is part of a regular 10-year cycle of such evaluations.

The extensive preparation for this visit has already commenced and will, over the next year, involve the entire college community.  There will be an important informational meeting to review the NEASC process on Wednesday, Sept. 3 from 11 AM-12 PM in Tuttle Hall Theater.

From the Registrar’s Office

The last day to add a class for the Fall 2014 semester is Friday, Sept. 5 at 4 p.m..  Add forms are available in the Registrar’s Office.  Adviser and instructor signatures must be on the form.

Study Groups

Many students prefer to learn on their own, but there are others who learn best when they can work with others.  For those students who need to learn in groups…the answer is “study groups”.  A study group can be formed at CSJ anytime, and in a variety of ways.  If anyone feels there is a need for study groups, please contact the Learning Center (susan.boyce@csj.edu).  We will create any specific study group needed, including reading chapters to students and building their comprehension of text.

Library

The Giorgetti Library now has Films On Demand.  — FOD (Master Academic Collection) consists of 16,000 video titles (238,500 segments) in Humanities & Social Sciences, Business & Economics, Health, and Science.  You can access Films On Demand in-house or remotely by going to Find Resources in the Library Services section of our web site.  Ask the Librarian if you need assistance using this database.

Don’t forget to fill out the Library Survey for weekend hours.  You can submit it online, or use the  paper ballots available in the library.  Your opinion matters to us.  Thank you.
