Feick to Host J Henry Fair Photography Exhibit
An exhibit titled “Industrial Scars” (see above photo) by New York City-based photographer J Henry Fair is now open at the College’s William Feick Arts Center. A reception for the artist will be held Thursday, November 4 from 5-7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

"Industrial Scars is an aesthetic look at some of our most egregious injuries to the system that sustains us, in hopes that the viewer will come away with an innate understanding of her complicity and a will to make a difference,” says Fair of his work. His photographs include large aerial images of river deltas and industrial panoramas that are inherently colorful and arresting until the viewer understands them to be unnatural landscapes shaped by environmental degradation.

The Feick Arts Center is free and open to the public Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays 12-6 p.m. "Industrial Scars" will be on display through November 19.

Amy Barra '09 Introduces New GMC Enthusiasts
Graduate Amy Barra ’09 is working at the Cornell Cooperative Extension in Auburn, N.Y. as the Cayuga County environmental educator and sent this photo of a 5th grade Auburn N.Y. class sponsored by GMC through the No Excuse University program.

Each classroom at the school chooses a different college sponsor, with the aim of getting students excited about going to college. Many students will be the first in their families to go on to higher education. “I visited our class today and wanted to send you a picture of the students,” she writes. “They were extremely excited about the College, they loved the idea of our hands on service learning projects and our farm.” The t-shirts were provided by the GMC Admissions office.



CORE Survey for Students
The CORE Drug and Alcohol Survey was developed in the late 1980s by the US Department of Education and advisors from several universities and colleges. The survey is used by colleges nationwide to determine the extent of substance use and abuse on their campuses as well as to determine student attitudes towards drugs and alcohol. All GMC students are invited to take this online survey at www.coresurvey.com. The log-in login ID is 17911. more...
