It takes 200 volunteers two weeks to transform the 1839 Mansion into a showcase of the season. Georgia College faculty, staff and 50 students work alongside numerous community members to get it ready for thousands of visitors who’ll come to see its bright lights and holiday cheer.

Students from Dr. Peter Rosado Flores’ inorganic chemistry lab and Matt Forrest’s printmaking class collaborated recently to discover the natural chemistry between art and science.

The Office of Health Promotion, in partnership with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Active Minds, TWLOHA and ATO would like to invite you to hear Taylor Wesley, a Mental Wellness speaker on Thursday, Nov. 30 at 7:15 p.m. at the Depot.

More information about Taylor can be found here: https://www.taylor-wesley.com/

Georgia College is one of the few non-research universities to host the Southeastern section of the American Physical Society (SESAPS). The growth of the physics program was the compelling reason for identifying Milledgeville for this year's location for the conference, which takes place Nov. 16 - 18, 2017. 

For the past two years Georgia College has sent more students to the SESAPS meetings than any other university. The objective of the section meeting is the advancement and diffusion of knowledge of physics within the Southeastern region of the United States, including the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The section brings together physicists once a year for a November meeting. Graduate and undergraduate students are always welcome and are encouraged to attend this meeting.

Please join us for the Civility in the Workplace training workshop.  Below is the course description and registration link. We hope to see you there.

Course Description: While a training program on workplace manners and courtesy may seem like overkill, the reality is rudeness is an epidemic costing industry millions a year. Indeed, what society seems to be gaining in terms of both knowledge and technological advancement, it is losing out on basic social values that directly impact the bottom line. To address the growing problem of incivility in the work setting, this workshop introduces the concept of civility, its importance to a company, as well as its typical causes and effects. Skills needed to effectively practice civil behavior, as well as different ways organizations can systematize civility in the workplace will also be discussed. The benefits to civility in the workplace are countless and will pay off immensely in every aspect of your job.

Objectives:

  • Define civility, understand its causes and enumerate at least three of its behavioral indicators.
  • Understand the costs of incivility, as well as the rewards of civility, within the workplace.
  • Learn practical ways of practicing workplace etiquette.
  • Learn the basic styles of conflict resolution.
  • Learn skills in diagnosing the causes of uncivil behavior.
  • Understand the role of forgiveness and conflict resolution.

The workshop will be held on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017, in Atkinson - Conference Room 202: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.  

Please use the following link to register for the class. Space is limited.
