Cougars & Mustangs
By CHRIS WHITE-SANBORN
Well, it’s the last Thursday before you begin classes again, Cougars, and—what? You’ve not even registered yet? Well, better do that fast! If you don’t want to just do it online, walk-in registration is an option—but today (depending on when you read this) is the last day for that: from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the SLO campus Student Service Center, Building 3100; from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the North County Campus, 2800 Buena Vista Drive, Building N3000; and from 4 to 9 p.m. at the South County Center, Arroyo Grande High School Administration Building, 900 Wing, located near Orchard Avenue. I’ll remind you that classes begin on Tuesday, Jan. 22.
By the way, to any new Cuesta-goers reading this for the first time, I’m going to suggest that you get an ASCC Social Club card. College is new for you, and times are tough, and the occasional free meal and opportunity to relax and play pool or Halo can help you through it. I’ll get off my pulpit now; regular readers have heard me say this speech several times before. Either way, welcome to Cuesta.
OK, while the Cougars are taking care of Cougar business, here’s something for the Mustangs. On Wednesday, Jan. 23, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Chumash Auditorium on campus, attend a panel titled “Paths to Sustainability in Food and Agriculture.” This event, presented by the Cal Poly College of Agriculture, Food & Environmental Science’s Center for Sustainability, will involve panelists from four of California’s leading food producers and processors shedding light on their experiences and techniques, as well as giving advice to students and holding a question-and-answer session.
That event occurs right before Poly’s 24th annual Ag Showcase, a student-run job fair allowing networking between students and company representatives, and job and internship opportunities. That’s set for Thursday, Jan. 24, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Agricultural Operations Building (Building 9).
Finally, Poly’s University Art Gallery will be featuring the exhibit “Swimming Upstream,” a collection of graphic designs, illustrations, and photography by artist Jay Vigon, from Friday, Jan. 18, to Saturday, Feb. 16. Vigon will be holding a free lecture to open the exhibit on Jan. 18 at 5 p.m. in the gallery in the Dexter Building, Room 171. Vigon, a graduate of the Art Center College of Design in Southern California, is known for his logo designs, music packaging, and fashion advertising. He’s done work for television commercials for AT&T, Diet Coke, Toyota, and others. You can visit the exhibit from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays through Saturdays. It is free.
