Three candidates were in the running for WCC president, but the search committee wanted to find more candidates. The current president of WCC Larry Whitworth has been in the position for 13 years.

The next president may have the job for 10-15 years, so the committee wants to make sure we get the right person for the job.

WCC student enjoying the OE lounge

Off the beaten path so to speak is the Occupational Education Building. Unless you have a class in one of the technical majors that has classes in the building, most students probably have not venture into the OE.

For some time, the lobby area was empty because of the construction, but it now has a fully furnished lounge and study area that is nice and inviting to students who want a place to eat their lunch and study that is less crowded than the Student Center.

Sabina, a Secondary Education major said she used to come to the OE lobby a lot before the construction started.

“Now that it is all done, it is really nice,” said Sabrina.

The lobby has comfortable chairs and side tables and a bunch of taller tables to sit and meet with friends over lunch.

And on rainy days, the OE lobby provides the perfect lookout for those waiting for the bus.

Fun Fashion at WCC

Some times you walk by someone in the Student Center and you just have to know their story. This was one of those times.

Meet Beni. He is a Network Security major who happens to also fancy walking around campus with funny ears/horns/antenna on his head.

“I found them in a box,” said Beni.

Beni says that he loves Washtenaw. He transferred from Eastern Michigan University from the nursing program.

He felt that Emu was too big. He came from a town where his high school had a few hundred students. The some 20,000 at Eastern was a culture shock.

“It [WCC] is more down home,” he said. ” And it is cheaper.”

Washtenaw Community College Richard W. Bailey Library Cracking Down on Food

No Food in the Richard W. Bailey Library at WCC

I knew something was up when I (and I think all WCC students) received an email from Victor Liu, the Dean of Learning Resources, about helping to keep food out of the Richard W. Bailey Library. (click on image below to read the email)

“We were a little lenient about allowing snacks in the library,” said Bethany Kennedy, Director of Access Services.

“But is started getting out of hand. People were ordering pizzas and getting delivery from Jimmy Johns. Students were also taking their Subway sandwiches and plates of food from the Student Center and taking them into the private study rooms.”

Kennedy noted that the custodian staff commented about having to clean up  the mess left behind.

“We have computer equipment and books, so we need to keep our facility clean so their is no damage,” said Kennedy.

Now a large sign located as you walk into the library clearly states the library’s food policy and the staff is now making the rounds to enforce it.

This means that students will have to have their pizza parties some where else.
