Subject:Southwestern Energy at Hendrix College
Time:10:48 am
 (Taken from Senate Notes this week. Southwestern Energy: BJ went to the Board of Trustees meeting and told them that they did not do the students justice, and that the whole thing was just kind of, more or less, sucky (I kind of think of it as "Hendrix Footbal: the Sequel", as part of the series including "Hendrix Football, episode 1: The New Mascot"). They in turn apologized, but said something to the extent of that the real world doesn't care/wait for student wishes (head to the website notes for a better version of this convo), and that the real estate and business industries work too fast to see if students are OK with it. Tough shit, basically. But, then they said they would try to be better in the future. So whatever that means to you.)

This is the note I sent to Senate:

Ok. So the school didn't include us and kind of gave us the "tough cookies" brush off. I still think we shouldn't just roll over and let them make decisions like that without even mentioning anything until its done without some kind of consequence. All that does is pave the way for more instances like this one. Excuse me, but realty deals really don't go through THAT fast. The fact that they were even THINKING about doing that should have been in the very least mentioned to the student body. Eventually Hendrix will be just another UCA. Thats disgusting. Is there any way the students can actually be heard again???? I am so ashamed to be at this school now. A lot of things have caused me feeling that way over the last few years but this Southwestern deal was just the last straw. I feel like I was tricked into coming here based on the values the school used to have, which were quickly demolished in both the metaphoric and literal sense. It was clear my first year at Hendrix that the school was changing. It just makes me sad that students in the future probably won't even hear that Hendrix had honor and ethics at one point, instead of just a fat wallet. It is evident that this school cares more about money than the people who work at or attend the institution. I will never donate money to this school after graduation and everyone I have talked to has the same sentiments. They won't call and congratulate me on a job, or ask me how my life is going a few years down the line. They'll be just as interested in me as they are now, and they only thing they are concerned with is my money. My question is why should we give money to a school that never thought we were important enough to listen to? To put it in terms a capitalist would understand: If Cloyd only cares about the almighty dollar, maybe he should consider the alumnus donations which he relies on and what effect treating the students this way will have on future donations. Since I'm sure thats the only thing in this note that would even be of concern to a "business".

I suppose in Hendrix's "statement of purpose" when they said we would be utilizing powers of ethical deliberation and empathy for others, and discernment of the social, spiritual, and ecological needs of our time. They forgot to add an (Except where it interferes with us making some money.)


I remember when the best walking trail in Conway used to be there.

I've been accepted to Hendrix for the 2006-2007 school year and am thinking about which houses to list as my first-third choices on the housing application. Any suggestions?

Subject:Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture
Time:01:51 pm
Hello. My name is Guy Lancaster, and I’m the new assistant editor of the Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture, which is a project of the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, a division of the Central Arkansas Library System. We're working on building a comprehensive reference work for historians, teachers, students, and individuals for the purpose of promoting the study, understanding, and appreciation of Arkansas's heritage. We plan to launch the Encyclopedia online in May of next year with about 1,000 entries, expanding that to somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 entries when the project reaches its completion date of 2010. In addition, there are plans in the works for a CD-ROM and two-volume print edition.

We are looking for writers willing to compose entries on a wide array of Arkansas-related topics. A list of available topics can be found here (the ones in bold are those currently unassigned to anyone). Also on our website you can find our author guidelines, as well as the means by which to recommend to the editorial staff an author for a specific entry or a subject matter you believe we have overlooked.

Prospective writers do not need to be experts in their respective fields, merely people with an interest in the state and a willingness to do some basic research.

I hope you will take this opportunity to help build a heritage resource that promises to preserve and disseminate the history and culture of Arkansas. If you are interested in taking a particular entry, please e-mail me, and if you have any questions, please contact me at the address below or respond to this post:

Time:10:46 am
just thought i would give everyone a heads up in case people haven't heard. remember when hendrix said they were raising *returning students'* tuition, and not incoming students'? well, that was a mistake, and our tuition is actually lower than incoming students'. does that make anyone feel better? it does me.

I really like Hendrix, and I'm thinking about going there in the fall. I was just wondering if any of came from the west coast, or know anyone who has. What was it like adjusting to life in Arkansas?
Any information would be very much appreciated.
Thanks!

I'm going to be working in Conway from early June to mid September and need a cheap place to live. I'd like to have my own bedroom, but other than that I'm very flexible. Any suggestions?

Hey everyone with a hendrix.edu e-mail address ...

Go to http://www.thefacebook.com/contact.php and request that Thefacebook add Hendrix to its network.

If you don't know what it is - it's kind of like Friendster, only better.

They add schools based on the number of requests they receive over time, so the more the better.
