Freezin’ for a Reason

We are so excited for Winter Carnival 2012 “Freezin’ for a Reason” and look forward to your involvement. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email: James Dube at jcdube2@plymouth.edu or Amylee Keith at alkeith@plymouth.edu

Packets in PDF form

This packet includes a week-long calendar of our events as well as brief descriptions of participatory activities and events throughout the week. At the end of the packet you will find a breakdown of our points system, as well as a registration sheet for you to fill out and turn into the Student Activities Office.

Events returning are the Student Smack Down, Bingo and the Food Drive.

We devised a new recording and update system of who has how many points and who is in what place. This will always be on display in the PACE office. You will notice the same participation points as well as bonus points listed throughout the packet as there were during Homecoming.

REMEMBER the earlier you turn it in your registration sheet, the more points you get! Also, the more your group participates in the registration and the more events your group attends the more points you earn. We are working with positive reinforcement!!

Events are open to all students who wish to participate, opposed to just student organizations. So for example if a few friends from the Student Apts. or the 7th floor of Grafton wanted to form a group and name themselves they can participate as well! Groups which have been “unrecognized” or not sanctioned by the school may not participate. PACE will have the final say on whether groups may participate or not.

“Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock”

Thursday, February 16, Boyd Hall 001

Her roles as a newspaper publisher and then president of the Arkansas NAACP would have been enough to make history. But in 1957, Daisy Bates brought the struggle for desegregation to the steps of Little Rock’s Central High School. As nine African-American students attempted to enroll in the school, the story of Daisy Bates encompasses multiple issues of racism and feminism.

A discussion of the film follows led by Assistant Professor of Childhood Education Mary Earick and Assistant Professor of English Education Megan Birch.
