The Vicksburg-Warren Campus of Hinds Community College celebrated the grand opening of a disc golf course Nov. 11.

The new addition to the campus was the brain child of several administrators and students. Rip Engler, assistant dean of the Vicksburg-Warren Campus, came up with the idea several years ago, but wasn’t able to find the resources needed to get it going. Recently, Marvin Moak, the new dean of the campus, Mark Stanton, district director of student activities, and Dr. Sarah Nichols, Phi Theta Kappa advisor, along with several PTK students, took the time and energy to make Engler’s idea a reality.

“I am excited about the disc golf course because it’s a successful completion of our PTK project, and also because it’s going to give me something to do between classes,” said student Tiffany Carroll of Vicksburg. “I usually go home between classes because there’s nothing going on. But now I’ll be challenged to learn something new and also have an opportunity to socialize with friends.”

The Vicksburg-Warren Campus’ disc golf course is only one of two courses in all of Vicksburg, and is the only public course. Anyone from the community is welcomed to use it. The course opens at dawn and closes at dusk.

“We hope this will bring more visitors to campus to see what the college has to offer,” said Stanton. “We plan to hold a disc golf intramural tournament here in the spring, as well.”

Hinds CC Raymond Library hosting Welty photography exhibits

Hinds CC Raymond Library hosting Welty photography exhibits

 

webWelty_3396

An exhibition of photographs taken by acclaimed Mississippi author Eudora Welty is on display throughout November and December at Hinds Community College’s McLendon Library on the Raymond Campus.

Welty once worked as a junior publicity agent for the Roosevelt depression-era Works Progress Administration. The WPA, as it was known, helped millions of unemployed Americans with steady employment.

For a year Welty traveled extensively across Mississippi taking hundreds of photos of her native state. Hinds is hosting two exhibits on Eudora Welty’s WPA experience – “Welty” and “Eudora Welty: Other Places.” 

 The “Welty” exhibit contains 14 photographs taking during her Mississippi travels. The photos are juxtaposed with passages from her books “The Wide Net,” “Delta Wedding,” “The Golden Apples,” “A Curtain of Green” and “Some Notes on River Country” to show the relationship between her source material and her writing.

“Eudora Welty:  Other Places” presents 22 photographs taken by Welty during her WPA travels to New Orleans and New York City from 1936 to 1939. Welty sought out less commonplace subjects in New Orleans and New York taking casual, mostly unposed snapshots. In New York, she photographed the shadows and patterns of light on the elevated subway, the street over which it loomed and groups of unemployed men gathering to hear speeches and wait for jobs.

The two exhibits are on loan from Mississippi Department of Archives and History and are available for viewing at the Hinds Raymond Library during open hours Monday-Thursday, 7:45 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. The library is closed Thanksgiving week.

As Mississippi’s largest community college, Hinds Community College is a comprehensive institution offering quality, affordable educational opportunities with more than 170 academic, career and technical programs. With six locations in central Mississippi, Hinds enrolled nearly 12,000 credit students in fall 2014. To learn more, visit www.hindscc.edu or call 1.800.HindsCC.

Hinds CC featured in University Business article on energy savings

For the entire University Business article headlined “Energy synergy in higher education: How higher ed institutions are adopting energy management initiatives for energy savings,” click here.

 

Perhaps most imperative in efforts to save energy are the people who live, study and work on campus. Hinds Community College in Mississippi first focused on staff habits. Hinds has 12,000 students on six campuses, along with 5,000 personnel who have office computers and peripheral machines.“We began by asking staff to make sure lights, computers, monitors and printers were turned off when not in use,” says Jason Pope, director of sustainability. “We simply explained the costs. Making a presence and checking behind folks is critical to maintaining this type of program as well. Accountability is key.”

Encouraging consciousness of energy use goes beyond flicking a switch at Hinds. Students are encouraged to report any misuse of energy they spot on campus, including lights that do not turn off, parking lot lights on during the day, sport field lights, classroom lights left on, water leaks and broken sprinkler heads. Through a combination of these and other actions, the Mississippi college is now approaching $8 million in energy savings since 2008.
