Hello everyone, welcome to Mocs News I'm Shaadi Marand and I'm Phillip Jones
Phillip: In Campus, I am proud to announce that UTC is movin’ on up.
Quit literally! According to the 2006 edition of U-S News and World Report’s annual America’s Best Colleges Guide, U-T-C moved from 43rd to 40th among colleges in the south.
This is in part due to the fact that we now offer three doctoral programs.
Chancellor Roger Brown was quoted as saying and I quote, “I am particularly pleased to see that UTC continues to score well in academic reputation, class size, and other factors of academic quality.”
Career Day will be held onWednesday, February 8th @ 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. in the Tennessee and Chattanooga Rooms located in the University Center. Students are encouraged to attend this annual event to network with local and national employers. Career Day provides a great opportunity for students to investigate job opportunities.There will be 89 exhibitors participating. Career Day is sponsored by Placement & Student Employment Center, The Counseling & Career Planning Center, and the Office of Cooperative Education.
Phillip: The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga announces plans for a series of events surrounding the installation of Dr. Roger G. Brown as Chancellor of the institution. On Thursday, February 16, Brown will preside over a University Convocation for faculty, staff, and students where he will present his first “State of the University” address.
At that time, he will outline his vision for the future of the campus as well as highlight many of the accomplishments of faculty, staff, and students.
And since this is Black History month Mocs News will keep you updated with what’s going on throughout the month.
Today Februaury 6 there will be Moments in Black History presented by the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta @ 7:13pm in the Chattanooga Room AND... on Tuesday, February 7 th, The men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the Office of Multicultural affairs will sponsor the play, "Our Young Black Men are Dying and Nobody Seems to Care, The play written is by James H. Chapman. This free event is open to the public, and it will be held at 7 p.m.
in the UC Auditorium.
The play is a non-confrontational play that depicts the choices facing African American males today. It seeks to give purpose and mission to the needless slaughter of young people by telling their whole stories and showing them a way out or any crisis.
After the show, there will be a brief discussion with the women from the cast.
The session ends with a poetry selection that captures the theme of the evening.
