CAVE To Be Featured in CSU Media Campaign

CSU, Chico is one of three CSU campuses selected to participate in a systemwide multi-media campaign on community service learning. The goal of the series is to convey the transformative individual experiences and overall impact of community service learning across the 23-campus system. The end product will be a DVD with individual stories from each participating campus. CAVE staff member Erik Hormann and sociology professor Cynthia Siemsen will represent the Chico campus. While serving as the CAVE Seniors Program director, Hormann partnered with Siemsen to create a service-learning component for her Sociology of Life course. Filming took place May 4 and 5.

Anthropology Exhibit Separates Fact from Fiction

Were there ever snakes in Ireland? Do people in The Netherlands really wear wooden shoes? Students in Stacy Schaefer’s Exhibit Research and Design class answered these and other questions as they developed an exhibit concept into an actual exhibit display located on the second floor of Meriam Library. Jacob Carr and Christy Newton created The Netherlands, Alyssa Bomar and Anna Kimball created Saint Patrick’s Day, Anna Dietze and August Potor created Historical Archaeology, and Chelsea Murray and Darah Votaw created Organic Food. The exhibit will remain up until mid-May.
