Hello once again all! After the nice long extended weekend with the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, we are already almost to another weekend! If you have been feeling stressed with your load from classes or other activities, just keep that in mind!
Speaking of this weekend, are you looking for something to do? Why not take advantage of the time to possibly save a life and donate some much needed blood? The "Rock N’ Roll Up Your Sleeve” Blood Drive will be HERE on the Rockford College campus from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on this Saturday! Stone and Double T from 104.9 the X will be here supporting the Rock River Valley Blood Center, and you can even register to win PRIZES! It is not often that we have an event like this where so many lives can be touched!
Once the weekend passes, it will be Monday and time for the first Forum Series event of the semester as Dr. Peter Phillips comes to discuss "Media Democracy in a Time of Truth Emergency.” If you have forgotten about the Forum Series, let this serve as a reminder! You must attend two of these per semester in order to fulfill graduation requirements. I usually try to make it to one of the first couple Forums so I at least have one under my belt as the semester moves on, but you should make sure to pick ones that seem interesting to you! The Forums may be a graduation requirement, but they are also thought-provoking and insightful and do have quite a nice selection to choose from for which ones to attend!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and stay safe with all the hazardous wintry conditions!
Until next time…
