As everyone makes their August plans, I wish to remind you to consider attending Pi-Con! Pi-Con is a weekend-long celebration of science fiction and other fan interests - there's webcomics, science, costuming, gaming, larping, filk, lifestyle, and lots more. This year, it's happening August 21-23 in Enfield, CT right off 91, just south of the MA border. Register today!

This year will feature Author Guest of Honor Mary Doria Russell (award winning author of The Sparrow and Children of God), Webcomic Guest of Honor Jeffrey Rowland (creator of Wigu, Overcompensating, and the awesome t-shirt site Topatoco), and Guest of Awesome Genevieve Iseult Eldredge. We will also see the return of our video game room, two full rooms of all day board/card/table top gaming, many favorite panels and events including the panel in the pool, and the new addition of Filk programming! There will also be performances by our local Rocky Horror and Repo casts (The Come Again Players and Genetic Imperfection)

Full weekend pre-registration rates for Pi-Con are currently $40 for adults or only $25 for students! Get your registrations in at the early rate!

Room reservations are *open* for Pi-Con! Room rate will be $109/night + tax. Just go to http://www.pi-con.org/hotel.php and you can register online for a room (note: Discounted room rate ends August 10th, reserve soon!).

Hey, everyone! I'm trying to get students from all 12 Connecticut Community Colleges to connect on Facebook so that we can get to know each other and talk about issues that are important to us all, including tuition and cocurricular life. Join the Connecticut Community Colleges group and promote it in your own college's group(s) so we can spread the word. Thanks! :)

We need to jump a little life back into this community. I left livejournal altogether, save for reading my friends' page regularly, but I would also like to return to maintaining this community.

I'm Danielle, I'm the admin here & I currently attend 2 community colleges now, Nauagatuck Valley & Middlesex (in Middletown). I take US History @ NVCC & Organic/Biochem @ MXCC. Both PM classes. I'm making a transfer to St. Joseph in the Fall to complete my bachelor's in Nursing.

How is everyone else doing in their endeavors? Updates people, UPDATES!! Last week & this week are the spring break weeks for all community colleges (how lucky for me, my colleges fell into 2 different weeks so I didn't really get a complete break at all). So I know you've got some free time!!!!

And if you really love this community (or atleast are bored), you'll recruit your friends. If there's anything you'd like to see posted on here regularly (academic schedules, midterm/final dates, etc) just let me know. I want to know what you guys want to read. This is STILL the only community dedicated exclusively to those students of CT CC's, and we should take advantage, don't ya think??

basically everyone on livejournal ever should join this community-


..not so much "random facts" (which are cool, but theres like bah-zillion LJ communities dedicated to that), but more focused on potentially life-changing tips/hints that we pick up daily and continue to use. I just started it, join if it seems like something youd be into/could contribute to!

Plus it has an awesome user icon that I feel really sums up the essence of its purpose.

:insert any due apoligies here for my wasting 9 seconds of your time, if you so feel necessary:

Got this link sent to me this morning via e-mail; for those of you who attend NVCC, it's a list of student activities coming up:

The Happening Online.

Also check out the NVCC myspace forum. I am sure there's a myspace for every comm college though, so go search around!

Hope the semester is going well for everyone!!

The Manchester Community College Political Union, Greater Manchester Young Democrats, and Connecticut Young Democrats are co-sponsoring a forum on health care issues this Tuesday, February 6, from 6 - 7:30 p.m. at the SBM Charitable Foundation Auditorium at Manchester Community College. The panelists are State Senate President Pro Tempore Donald Williams, State Rep. Andy Fleischmann, the Connecticut Business and Industry Association's Eric George, and Christine Cappiello from Blue Cross/Blue Shield. It will be moderated by Angelo Messore, co-advisor to the Political Union and professor of political science and economics at MCC.

The event will be followed by a reception with free pizza and soda from 7:30 to 8. There will also be tables set up with information on health care and how to find more information.

Even if you're not interested, pass it on to your parents, grandparents, or anyone else who might be interested in this issue (or pizza).

As many of you probably saw in the Courant, the CSU system has raised tuition and fees about 6%. UConn recently raised theirs as well.

How would you feel about a similar increase for the CTCC system? Would you be okay with the cost going up? What do you think would be an appropriate amount? Would an increase in cost affect your ability to pay for your education?
Current Music: Robert Altman's "Nashville"
Are there any Angels and Airwaves fans out there?

The band is playing the Webster Theatre in Hartford in November, and I am looking for a few fans who can volunteer 1 or 2 hours of their time anytime this coming week to help promote the band’s online fan club and advance ticket presale.

Fans will earn INCREDIBLE free stuff for helping out, including concert tickets to the show, Army of Angels fan club meberships, merchandise autographed by the band, and passes to a special pre-show meet-and-greet soundcheck party with the band.

If you are interested and want more information, please email Scott at scott.santos@musictoday.com

Please feel free to pass this message along to all those who may be interested.

Hey everybody! I'm Aly, and this fall I'm entering HCC as a freshman. I plan on attending here for a year, maybe two, and getting all my core stuff done. My major for now is general studies. After I finish the core credits, I'll transfer, and eventually I'll be going into forensic psychology.

Anyway, I was wondering who the best/worst/easiest/hardest professors are at HCC. Any feedback would be really appreciated. Thanks so much!! :)
