As others will remind you, Genesee Community College isn’t just that campus in Batavia. Actually, that campus in Batavia is only 50% of the college. We’ve spread things around as a way to make it easier for you to get to us.
One of the ways we do this is through campus centers. There are actually 6 now (alphabetically: Albion, Arcade, Dansville, Lima, Medina, Warsaw), built up over the years. Lima is the newest (hmm… maybe more about that at some point) but I was invited to Arcade to work with faculty on some of their course materials. Someone (you know who you are!) also told me that the Tim Horton’s on Route 16 is like the best Tim Horton’s anywhere.
TPTB will remind me to say there are also Distance Learning classes that don’t have a physical campus and a ton of high schools in which Genesee offers ACE program courses. But that’s not today’s topic.
So, of course, I packed my trusty camera and took pictures. I suspect a lot of you haven’t been out to a campus center ever, so thought I’d bring a flavor back with me.
It’s fun going out and working with folk I normally only ‘talk’ to on email. Hey! I can be as sociable as the next person! ::pouts::
I did get to work with a number of folk, got some serious work done helping faculty do things in Blackboard or for their courses and had fun visiting over lunch! Thanks, Deb, for lunch if I didn’t get to say so.
The entire collection is on Flickr again, located here. I took pictures of some great student art and ceramics. I didn’t get them all, and my apologies to everyone I missed, but there is some very nice student work on display in the building. Stop by to see it if you’re ever in the area.
If you’re an Arcade student, you probably know Anne Heale, and if you’re on Facebook, you already know to friend her. If you haven’t, feel free to do so, she uses Facebook to post announcements about the campus and events, so it’s a good way to keep in touch!
Probably going back out in, hmmm, March. Watch for it!
