The weekend has finally arrived and what better way to start it off then to witness history! I had the opportunity along with fellow students, faculty and administrators to watch the fly over and final flight of the space shuttle as it passed over Disneyland. Just to watch it pass in the distance, despite the haze, was surreal.

Sometimes I know for myself, that I often take for granted or fail to realize the events that have taken place during my lifetime that have forever changed history and the next generation will only read about and not experience. This being one of them, the World Trade Center attack on America; which when I look at my 6 year old niece and 18 month old nephew think that they will never realize the magnitude and full effect on how it forever changed America. Yes, they will read about it, but actually being a part of history is something I feel many take for granted or do not realize that one day future generations will be reading about us in text books like we did with the Civil War, World War I and II.

On another note I recently found out that individuals can now register to vote online instead of the old fashioned paper version! Who knew that voter registration would ever catch up to the 21st century. So if anyone is interested and would like to register online and not be annoyed by the voter registration people, give it a try at

And don’t forget that you can now purchase Knott’s Scary Farm and Universal Studios Haunt tickets in the Student Affairs office, room 223 (above the cafeteria) for a discount if you have your current A.S. Benefits. Prices vary based on the day, so be sure to stop by and check them out and our haunted office!

Until next time!
