Support students in need through campus food drive

Ghering Health and Wellness Center faculty and staff operate an on-campus food pantry for students in need throughout the academic year. But they are facing a frightening predicament this spooky season – the pantry’s supply is freakishly scarce.

Suggested donations include the following:

Spooky Food Drive
  • Oatmeal
  • Dried or canned fruit
  • Canned soup or chili
  • Canned pasta
  • Canned tuna, chicken or other meat
  • Microwavable noodles or rice
  • Toilet paper
  • Hand soap
  • Body wash
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Toothpaste

Conference Services to offer space reservation trainings

Conference Services

Do you need to schedule space on campus for a meeting or event, but aren’t quite sure how to do it? Do you have questions about the space reservation process and how it works? 

Conference Services will host EMS scheduling training sessions at the following times:

Both sessions will be held in Frank G. Pogue Student Center, Seminar Room 143.

For those who are already regular users of the EMS Reservation System, this session will focus mostly on how to update reservations once they have already been requested – adding or deleting services, changing dates or times, providing notes to the service providers for your events, etc. This session is open to faculty, staff and students! 

For additional information, please contact Kari Althof, associate director of Conference Services and Pogue Student Center.

Ep. 3. Culture, history and progress of computer animation 
Karabo Legwaila, Assistant Professor, Art 

If you’re an artist, sometimes looking back on your earliest work can be – well – somewhat embarrassing. But as Edinboro University professor Karabo Legwaila explains in today’s episode of “Tartan Talks,” that’s one of the best ways to improve as an artist.

Karabo Legwaila joined the Art Department in the fall of 2016 as a professor of Computer Animation. Prior to that, he spent 10 years as a lead technical animator and dynamics specialist. Originally from Botswana, Karabo received his Master of Fine Arts degree in Computer Animation at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

He discusses what it’s like seeing your work in front of millions of people and how the field of animation has come a long way with inclusive culture.
