Students, We Want to Hear from You
University Marketing & Communications is looking to highlight the silver linings that have come about during the difficulties of the past several months in the next issue of Montevallo Today.
While we’ve all experienced some form of hardship as a result of the COVID-19 quarantine, the changes have also brought unexpected positives such as more time spent with family and developing new hobbies. What are some good changes you have experienced despite the challenges of the pandemic?
Please send responses to Neal Wagner, manager of communications and media relations, at email@example.com.
Milner Archives and Special Collections is asking students to consider sharing their experiences over the past several months. The program, Stories of the Pandemic, intends to record personal narratives relating to the disruption caused by COVID-19.
If you wish to participate, sign up for a timeslot here for Oct. 8 or 9. Students will have up to 25 minutes to record a particular story or talk about a series of events. The archives will provide a clean space, a digital voice recorder and discussion prompts (if needed). All you have to do is sign up and show up next week.
College Drive Closure Update
Due to weather, a section of College Drive will continue to be blocked off until approximately Tuesday, Oct. 13, for road repair. The section of the road is located behind the outdoor basketball court behind the SAC. This closure will only block access to the Physical Plant employee parking lot. To access the Student Retreat Center, tennis courts, sand volleyball court or the back of the SAC, traffic must enter the Student Retreat Drive loop across from Peck Hall.
