Super Bowl Party

   Get ready to rumble at the President’s place! The N.Y. Giants will battle the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XXXV and you can catch all the action on the President’s big screen TV.
   U of O’s annual Super Bowl Party begins at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 28. There will be plenty of snacks and everyone (students, staff, and faculty) is invited. The event will be hosted by John and Julia Frost and David and Malea De Seguirant. Don’t miss out on the chance to cheer for your team! RSVP to Paula Wills at Ext. 1242 by Friday, Jan. 26.

Maintenance On-line

   Do you have something that needs repaired? Well, now you can find help on-line. There is a new on-line method of contacting the U of O maintenance office for work and repair requests on campus.
   If you have a maintenance work/repair request, call up the U of O web site (www.ozarks.edu), click on the “Campus Services” link and then the “Physical Plant” link. Fill out the “work request” form describing your problem and “Send It” in. You will receive an e-mail response from the maintenance department concerning your request. The maintenance department believes this new on-line work request option will help make the process more effective and efficient.

Faculty Enrichment Award

   The Alumni Association will once again present the Faculty Enrichment Award, which includes a stipend of approximately $1,000.
   To apply, submit a letter/proposal that states the reason you seek the award, indicating very specifically how you plan to use the stipend and how it will enrich you as a faculty member of Ozarks. Please limit your proposal to two pages and include letters of recommendation from a student and division chair. The selection committee will review applications based on merit, but will also focus on how the proposal relates to the stated mission of the university.
   Please turn in your letter/proposal to the Alumni Office no later than January 31, 2001.

2001 Alumni Scholarships
   The Alumni Association has scholarships available to returning Ozarks students for the 2001-2002 academic year.
   You should have an application in your C-box. However, if you did not receive one or you live off campus, you may pick one up from the Alumni Office located in the Mabee Administration Building.
   Interested students must be individuals exemplifying good moral character with a minimum 3.0 GPA. The completed application form must be submitted with two letters of recommendation (one from an Ozarks' faculty member). The deadline date has been extended and all applications are due on February 2, 2001, not January 29th, 2001. For any questions contact Lori McBee in Alumni Relations.

Community Service Hours
   Get community service hours easily and help fulfill your scholarship requirements!
   Community service hours can be met by tutoring school age children (K-12). These hours are counted as long as students are not paid for the work. For more information on tutoring, contact Claudia Granger in Student Life or Sara Stucky in the Sciences and Mathematics Division.
   For those interested, the After School Program still has some Friday openings. Students can contact Sara Stucky to sign up.

Earthquake Rattles Students

   On Saturday, Jan. 13, a major earthquake shook the ground in Central America. The natural disaster caused extensive damage to the country and affected U of O alumni and returning students.
   Dr. Rickey Casey, director of international studies, has received word that all students and
U of O alumni are OK. However, Roberto Amaya, a 1998 U of O alumnus, lost his home in a mud slide. In addition, the earthquake damaged the international airport and delayed the return to U of O of some current students. Several of the students were interviewed for an article about the earthquake in Sunday’s Russellville paper, The Courier.
   On Monday, Jan. 22, all international students will meet to have a group prayer for the country and the people affected by the disaster. Also, plans are in the works to create a relief effort for the country, which will include funds for Roberto Amaya. For more information, contact
Dr. Casey.
