Holiday volunteer opportunities abound through FIRSTLINK
Whether you'd like to wrap toys for tots, serve up a Victorian tea party, or help deliver a "Miracle on Long Street," there is a volunteer opportunity waiting for you this season through the FIRSTLINK organization.
Although a few of the opportunities listed at this link have passed by, most are associated with the upcoming holidays, up to and including Martin Luther King Day in January.
FIRSTLINK's mission is to strengthen and enhance the quality of life in our community by mobilizing volunteers and connecting people to critical community resources.
A wide range of volunteer projects are listed, including some that can accept children volunteers for a great family holiday activity.
PTKs invite alumni to holiday festivities
Alumni of Phi Theta Kappa are invited to join local chapter Alpha Rho Epsilon at 5 p.m. Friday, December 1, for a holiday get-together. The party will be held in Nestor Hall Seminar Rooms A-D. Bring a dish to share with the group, and there will be a variety of activities. Children are welcome. Please contact Mary Hooker-Myers at email@example.com if you'd like to attend.
If you are interested in helping to form a local alumni chapter of Alpha of Ohio (http://alphaofohio.org/), Phi Theta Kappa's Ohio alumni association, contact Becky Murray at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The IT Support Center will be available for assistance during finals week during the following hours:

Here is a quick tip for grade entry:
If you are entering grades for your class and find the system is running slowly or the grades are not completely entered after hitting submit, try entering them in increments of no more than 10. By doing this you are less likely to get timed out.
