GSU shows spirit of giving

“It was a glowing experience and I don’t think they expected the kind of work, as far as using a hammer or removing concrete. It was new to them but rewarding when they finished,” said Rory Bedford, GSU director of service learning.

Mr. Scissorhands' match

Usually, when I have spare time, I like to lie on my couch and let the breeze from the ceiling fan lull me into a state of complete relaxation, broken only by the sound of my dog panting after he comes back in the house from chasing any varitey of wildlife that made the unwise decision to venture into our yards

RHS falls to No. 1 ranked Barbe

A combination of solid pitching from starter Spencer Matthews, a balanced 14-hit offense and two inning-ending double plays by the defense proved to be the winning ingredients for the Buccaneers.
“Spencer started off and did a good job of pitching for us,” said Barbe head coach Glenn Cecchini, “and then we were able to get enough early runs to support him. Our players hit the ball well today, but we knew we would have to have a lot of runs against Ruston’s pitching. They have two of the best pitchers in the state and we had to get as much as we could early.”

Tech building promises success

The biomedical engineering program has approximately 170 undergraduate students, 115 master’s students and 30 doctoral candidates, as well as 14 faculty members. These numbers will continue to grow, and with that growth will come new breakthrough discoveries and more acclaim for Tech, and with that acclaim, fame for Ruston.
Much gratitude goes to Tech’s president, Dan Reneau, for his visionary outlook that Louisiana Tech would have a state-of-the art research facility as this. Reneau knew what Tech needed, and he did all he could to make sure the institution had it.

Graduation around corner

One of my most memorable experiences was a job interview with a pharmaceutical company that was looking for a technical writer. While the job itself sounded boring as white rice to me, it paid well and — the most important part — it was a JOB.

Lumpkin named Tech CAB dean

“We are very fortunate to have him join us and have his strong leadership in the college,” Kenneth Rea, chair of the search committee for the new dean and vice president of academic affairs, said. “He brings to the position a wealth of experience in higher education as he has served as dean of two business colleges at OSU and Bradley University (in Peoria, Illinois).”
Rea said Lumpkin was chosen due to his community involvement, administration experience, scholastic achievement and extensive experience with higher education.

Variety is the spice of life

We had a barrier to hurdle in choosing from a menu filled with foods with Japanese names, and including ingredients like avocado, eel and crab. There was definitely no sign of chicken and mashed potatoes on this menu. Believe me. I looked.
“What is this?” was the question of the evening, and I’m sure the server grew tired of answering it for us.
“Well, I mean, most of them have what they are,” he said, visibly flustered, as he looked around at our blank stares and proceeded to tell us what exactly was in a California roll and whether it was cooked.

Day with arts a good step for students

Cox got on board because of Project ACHIEVE’s initiative to build partnerships in the community which will help bring resources that accelerate academic achievement and enrich the educational process.
The day began at the Lincoln Parish Library where students got a taste of history with a World War II exhibit provided by the Louisiana Military Museum. Students were able to see artifacts that were once possessions of members of the armed forces who served during World War II.
