Business program ranks high
The Pitt State Kelce College of Business has made the U.S. News and Report’s 2015 list of “Best Graduate Schools.”
The publication bases its rankings by a combination of statistical data and assessment data.
Sigma Tau Delta, Pitt State’s English honor society, is printing T-shirts in honor of Shakespeare’s 450th birthday.
The shirts are $20 for all sizes, with an additional $5 charge for mail orders. Checks and cash will be accepted. Checks should be made to Lori Dyer or Jamie McDaniel and be taken to McDaniel’s office in 402 Grubbs Hall.
Payments should be enclosed in a sealed envelope with name, e-mail address and shirt size included on a separate piece of paper. All payments are due by 5 p.m. Thursday, April 3.
The design is a black and white graphic of “the Bard” with the quote, “I think I’ll write a love story—Everybody dies.” It will be printed on a gray T-shirt, and the design may be viewed at www.facebook.com/events/661947170537181.
Enrollment and drop deadline
The summer and fall 2014 schedules of classes are now available online at the Pitt State website. Enrollment will begin at noon Sunday, April 6.
Students are encouraged to make appointments with their advisers and begin preparing to enroll.
Also, the registrar’s office has announced that the final day to drop a class and receive a grade of “W” is Monday, March 31.
All students who wish to drop a class after that day must withdraw from the university. At that point, professors may assess a grade of “W” or “F” for each class.
Broadcast upgraded to HD
The Pitt State sports broadcasting program has recently acquired new technology. The new high-definition equipment will allow the university to display HD footage and replays on the video board inside Kansas City’s Municipal Stadium.
The equipment will also serve as learning instruments for students and allow potential broadcasts of HD programming on the university’s TV station, CAPS 13.
Social media draft
A discussion draft by the Kansas Board of Regents Social Media Workgroup is available online at the Pitt State website.
Students are invited to view and submit comments. Comments must be submitted by Friday, March 28.
