Springtime in West Virginia

Springtime in West Virginia

Springtime in West Virginia Even though spring has officially arrived, it seems as though it is taking its sweet time bringing in the warmer temperatures. Lately, if it is not raining, the sun has been shining albeit with some very bone chilling winds, but rest assured, the warm days will soon arrive. With this return of spring weather, I would like to encourage us all to escape from the florescent lit class and dormitory rooms, and see the kind of outdoor adventures available in the [...]



GSC: Operation Sole Support

GSC: Operation Sole Support

GSC’s Operation Sole Support While many know that Glenville State College offers a quality education for local students, as well as being a source of employment for many families, it is often understated how much the college contributes to the daily lives of other people in the community as well.

This is Your Brain…on Spring Break

This is Your Brain…on Spring Break

This is Your Brain…on Spring Break While this pause in the semester for spring recess gives us all a much needed break from the papers and exams of midterm week, for many, this will be a time when their education takes a back seat to personal desires. While we all welcome this distraction from the continuous pressures of scholarly pursuit, most of us do not take advantage of this time to keep up with school work. Many will go to warmer climates for spring break [...]

The Gsc Bluegrass Program

Founded on August 3, 2007 at GSC, this uniquely original program was the first of its kind offered in the country. This program was built around [...]

Martin Luther King Jr: Uniter of America

Martin Luther King Jr: Uniter of America

“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” Martin Luther King Jr. With the recent observation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I am reminded of the forward progression our nation has made in regards of racial relations and tolerance. In the not too distant past, races were segregated and minorities were treated as second class citizens here in America, the “land of the free”. [...]
