Student Life savors victorious "Road Kill" trip, announces new activities and events for students, faculty and staff

January 14, 2003

Student Life and Leadership partnered with Housing and Residence Life to host a motor coach trip to Murray, Ky, this past Saturday.

"We fondly refer to this yearly event as 'Road Kill,'" says Blanche Wilson, director of student life and leadership. "This was Road Kill IV. We took 47 students and five staff members to see the APSU women's and men's basketball teams annihilate the Racers in their own house. It was a great trip. We plan to do it again next year!"

For those who enjoy more sedate activities, the Office of Student Life and Leadership is offering a series of scrapbooking classes. One class, taught by Aurelia McDuffie, will meet on campus, according to Wilson. Former APSU basketball player Georgie Stimson will teach another group at the Scrapbook Superstore.

"Organizations or groups are encouraged to sign up for the same night so a class tailored to their specific needs can be developed," Wilson says.

Black Men Emerging invites all African-American male staff and faculty to join them for an interest meeting Jan. 15. in UC 303. Dinner will be served, and attendees can participate in a discussion of plans to revitalize that organization.

The Zulu Connection, a dance troupe specializing in African dance, will visit APSU on Feb. 5. Through a workshop in the UC Ballroom from noon until 2 p.m., members of the troupe will demonstrate traditional dances, warm-up exercises and choreography, as well as discuss the history, folklore, instruments, song and language of African dance. The campus performance will take place in the music/mass communication concert theatre from 7 - 9 p.m. There is no charge for either event, and friends and family are welcome.

John Artis, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter's co-defendant in the movie "Hurricane," will speak to students, staff, and faculty during Black History Month. This free presentation will be in Clement Auditorium the evening of Feb. 19. Guests are welcome.
