In November 2015, Cedric Norris Jr. was a freshman weeks into his leading role in “The Ballad of Emmett Till,” when he got a call from home. 

His granddad had been killed two days before Thanksgiving.

Americans waste 40 percent of the food we produce, yet one in seven Americans are food insecure. The passion and dedication of two students led to a new way to fight hunger in Milledgeville while cutting down waste from the university’s dining hall.

The Center for Teaching and Learning offers a confidential, formative, mid-term student feedback service available to all Georgia College instructors. To schedule an assessment, complete the attached form and send it to ctl@gcsu.edu.

How the process works: At the invitation of an instructor, a faculty facilitator trained in the Small Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGID) technique guides students through a 30-minute, group consensus-building process in which they address the following four questions:

1) What do you like about any aspect of this course that helps you learn the material?

2) What suggestions do you have for improving any aspect of this course that would help you learn more?

3) How could those suggestions be implemented?

4) What can students do to improve this course?

The facilitator collates and types up the data then meets with the instructor a week or so later to go over the student feedback. The facilitator will not report data on the student feedback to anybody other than the instructor.

Georgia's Old Governor's Mansion recently received two nostalgic pieces to add to their collection - an 1850s ladies writing table that belonged to First Lady Mary Ann Lamar Cobb and a mid-19th century apothecary box that was also a Cobb family treasure. The writing table is in the Ladies parlor, and the medicine cabinet is in the master bedroom.

Both pieces were donated by a direct descendant, who has previously given objects to the museum.

"It is gratifying to have these objects donated to the museum," said Matt Davis, director of Historic Museums at Georgia College. "Pieces like these allow for a greater understanding of life in the 19th century, and help us better tell the story of those who lived at the Executive Mansion."

For tour information about the Old Governor's Mansion, visit http://www.gcsu.edu/mansion/tours.
