Sign-up sheet available now for Winter semester Information Stations

December 11, 2018

A message from Joe Courtade, Coordinator of Student Life and Conduct:

“Dear GRCC Family,

I know it’s hard to believe we’re talking about welcoming students back when they haven’t even left yet, but I wanted to get this information out to folks earlier rather than later. January 7-9, we will once again be welcoming students to the new semester at our well-stocked Information Stations across campus. Student Life couldn’t pull this off without your help–we’re hoping you will consider volunteering some of your time again!

The Information Stations will be at Sneden, Main, Student Center, Calkins Science, and the ATC this coming semester at varying times. See our Winter 2019 Info Station Sign Up Google Sheet to sign up for a time.

Let me know if you have any questions, and as always I appreciate your commitment to assisting our students!”

This weekend: GRCC Players present “Good Kids” by Naomi Iizuka

December 5, 2018

Good Kids by Naomi Iizuka

December 6-8 at 8 p.m. at Spectrum Theater, GRCC Players

Good Kids synopsis:

Something happened to Chloe after that party last Saturday night. Something she says she can’t remember. Something everybody is talking about. Set at a Midwestern high school, in a world of Facebook and Twitter, smartphones and YouTube, Good Kids explores a casual sexual encounter gone wrong and its very public aftermath. Who’s telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you believe? And what does that say about you?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Caution/Trigger Warning:

This show may be triggering as it contains graphic content dealing with sexual assault, graphic language, and adult situations. Please know resources will be available in the theater lobby should anyone need to reach out to on-campus services for future discussion.

A note from the director, Carrie McNulty:

“As the director of Good Kids, I am incredibly proud of the students handling this challenging material. We have had to tackle some tough conversations regarding consent, sexual assault, and the very real case this play is based on. The cast has been open, supportive, and mature in bringing this sensitive subject to the stage.
The play is very timely, and our hope is to encourage conversation and a call to action. Because of the nature of this play, we will be encouraging the audience to stay after the Friday (December 7) performance to engage in a conversation with a talk back panel.”

Discussion Panel:

There will be a post-show Discussion Panel on Friday, December 7. Panel members will include:

  • Lina Blair (Director of Student Life and Conduct)
  • Kimberly DeVries (Director of Equal Opportunity Compliance)
  • Officer Robin Kritzman (Campus Police Officer)
