Presidential Search Updates

Plans are in place to begin to share information with our campus community and the public regarding the upcoming presidential search. Two resources will be available: a page on BEAVERNet under the Employee Services tab is available now and a presidential search page will be on the BVU.EDU site available mid-October. The BEAVERNet site will house information like the search timeline, the search committee members, finalist vitae and candidate open session schedules, and updates from the search committee chair. The BVU.EDU site will house information like the job ad and the profile of what our institution is seeking in a new president. The BEAVERNet page will have a link to the BVU.EDU page for your ease. At key times we will also be releasing updated information to the media, but only after the information is shared internally.

Gnaw On Some Beaver History

·        Burning of Old Main:

Sixty years ago, on September 27, 1956, Old Main, Buena Vista College’s central landmark for sixty-four years, burned down. Even though this was a major loss, it could have been much worse. Through the heroics of several students and faculty, items such as desks, and safes containing student and administrative records, were saved. This was important because it showed the general public that the faculty and students of BV would not let the fire, extinguish their dreams of having a private college located in Storm Lake. This determination resulted in the creation of the Dixon-Eilers Hall and the Schaller Memorial Chapel, which currently reside on the spot where Old Main used to sit.

Nonverbal Communication (COMM 380) this Spring!

Want to be more successful in your personal and professional relationships?  Look beyond the words.  Nonverbal communication says it all.  Some research suggests that as much as 93% of what we communicate is through our nonverbal behavior.  Whether it’s a walk to convey power, a greeting to gain the upper hand, or a gesture that can hide a lie, much of how we communicate is unspoken.  Every day as we go about our busy lives, we send signals via body language, micro-expressions, posture, self-touching, facial displays, hot spots, our use of space, and in many other ways as well.  In this course, we will dissect the body, the face, and the voice, to reveal hidden meanings, secrets, and much more!   Come join us in Nonverbal Communication (COMM 380) on MWF from 10:00 to 10:50 AM this Spring semester.  This class is open to any student who has earned 45 credit hours or more.

Gnaw On Some Beaver History

·         ACES

Cultural events and lecture series are part of a long tradition of campus life at BV.

In 1912, the college held six lecture events. One of the lecture events involved the “Brownie Girl,” whose “special features… [were] musical monologues, story telling and interpretative reading and character work.” Another event involved “[t]he Davault Company… [who] g[a]ve a mixed program of drama, comedy, music and reading.” The main goal of these events was to provide students and members of the community with educational experiences that they otherwise would not receive. Today, the ACES program fulfills the same goal.

Creating new pop/rock ensemble

The music production and technology program is proud to announce that we are forming a musical ensemble that feature various types of music from classic rock/pop, country to alternative and other contemporary forms of music. Our first get-together will be THIS Thursday evening (9/15/16) at 7:00PM in THE choir room in Edson. We will not start practice at this time. We will meet and look at who we have and decide at that time what music we will work on and perform for the semester. We will practice every Thursday evening from 7:00-9:30PM with a major concert near the end of the semester. All types of musicians are welcome including various types of singer’s to drummers, guitarists, bassists, horn players, and keyboardists. You must have prior experience performing pop/rock.  You must be able to read music OR be able to pick up the music fast from listening. You will receive credit for the class. Please contact me if interested.
