Can you guys believe that we are already halfway done with Fall semester?!? I know I can't - time is whizzing by!
The coming weeks hold importance for many of us on campus as midterms, transfer applications, and the holidays are approaching and can often times be overwhelming. If you were able to attend this past weeks meeting, led by our Newsletter Editor Noelle, you were led through a guided meditation and shown the importance of mindfulness in everyday life. Hopefully you were able to take away at least one piece of advice that hit home for you!
This coming week, a cleanup will be hosted at the Emma McCrary entrance to Pogonip (Golf Club Drive - 36°59'25.3"N 122°02'12.6"W) from 5pm - sunset. There are always good times to be had out on the trail, and we hope to see some of you out there!
In closing, I would like to give a big thank you and round of applause to Noelle this past week for her relaxing meeting and informative guest speaker; you did great! This coming week, our General Board Meeting will be hosted by Qifan, who plans to bring some fun activities to the table ... come ready to make new friends and find your groove in AGS!
I hope that you all had a safe and relaxing weekend in the rain - drive safe and stay dry :)
Hello and happy 5th week of classes, everyone! We are officially 1/3 of the way through the Fall semester which can only mean one thing ... things are about to get a little crazy.
Like all of you, I know what it is like to have classes, work, and outside responsibilities piled on - sometimes, it feels a little too overwhelming. My go-to solution is usually to drop the "least important" item on my schedule in an attempt to balance things out, and I assume some of you do the same.
If this sounds like you, and AGS Meetings are falling second (or third, or fourth) to your other obligations, I would invite you to reconsider.
Tomorrow's meeting (though it will still require an hour of your time), is centered around the topic of stress and how to best manage things when life seems to get out of hand. We will be discussing coping mechanisms, support networks, and resources that are available to support you through the semester, and life!
So, take a deep breath - you are doing it (and killing it!). Know that you can handle that which has been handed to you, even if you do need a little more support. It is okay to ask for help!
I look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow in Room 913 from 5 - 6pm!
Due to location issues, our FIRST BAKE SALE has been moved to tomorrow, Wednesday Sept. 21st near the library.
Feel free to leave your baked goods (labeled with your name and student id #), in senate office or at the bake sale table!
If for some reason you are unable to find the table, please send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible!
Hope to see you then!
Wow! What a first meeting that was!
It was so wonderful to see so many new and returning faces at this weeks General Meeting - I think it is safe to say that we have an amazing semester ahead of us. With a good deal of enthusiasm (and pizza!), we had a full house. BUT, if you were unable to attend, not to worry! AGS will be hosting weekly meetings throughout the rest of the semester and we would love to have you!
AGS will be meeting every Wednesday, from 5 - 6pm in Room 913, unless otherwise posted. If you are unsure of the date or time, please check out our Fall 2016 Calendar (located on our websites main page), or check our Facebook for event updates.
Looking to drop of your membership form or member dues? Our lock box is now located in the Student Senate Office, next to the cafeteria - just look for our AGS logo and make sure to label your fees with your name and student ID!
Interested in getting hours this coming week?
Contact Daphne Tomlin (email@example.com) for information on this weeks Bake Sale! We will be tabling on Monday (times to be determined), and cookies/brownies/treats are always needed!
Have a great weekend everyone, I hope to see you all next Wednesday!
Hello and Welcome to all new and returning AGS members!
I hope that the first two weeks of school have flown by ... only thirteen left (it will go faster than you think!) until Winter Break!
Kidding aside - this semester is going to be a good one, I can feel it in the air. With the beginning of a new school semester comes new classes, new friends, and new experiences - one of which can (and should, if you ask me) be joining Cabrillo College's AGS Honors Society! While it may seem crazy to add more to your schedule, AGS is a great way to meet new people, volunteer in the community, and gain access to loads of scholarships to help pay for your education! Thinking about transferring? AGS is the only club that has the ability to appear on your transcript. And, I don't know about you, but "John/Jane Smith, AGS Honors Society Scholar" sounds pretty freaking cool.
If you are interested in learning more about our club, or just feel like eating some free pizza, swing by Room 913* this coming Wednesday, September 14th from 5 - 6pm for important information, member registration, and hot food!
Hope to see you all there!
*Room 913 is located next to the Bike Coop, underneath the Aptos Campus Cafeteria!
This is just a reminder that Salsa Night is this Thursday, Cinco de Mayo! This is one of our last big events so please come by! There will be a free Salsa dance instruction, Salsa tasting competition (so please bring some homemade salsa!) *disclaimer: chips will be provided*, as well as an open dance floor!
Here are the details for the event:
Thurs May 5th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Watsonville Campus Dance Studio
318 Union St,
For further information please contact Richie, the VP of Community Service!
So come on by, bring your friends, support AGS, and lets get our Salsa on!
I hope everyone enjoyed our much needed spring break and that we are all feeling refreshed enough to finish off the semester strong! Here some updates for this week:
This Wednesday 4/6/16 there will be a general member meeting at 5:00 pm in SAC East. Hope to see you all there!
This Friday 4/8/16 will be the start of the AGS State Convention! Let's wish that our fellow Cabrillo members attending this event have a great time!
Thanks and lets finish off this semester strong!
As you can see by looking at the front page calendar, your executive board will be meeting during the first two weeks of the semester to do some needed planning. Look for updates there once we confirm dates and activities. If you are a returning member and want to be involved in planning events or volunteering for Welcome Week activities, let us know by email or come to an e-board meeting. For everyone else, our first general member meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 10th at 5pm in the cafeteria. New potential members should consider coming to this meeting because many questions will be answered. As with every semester, new applications, dues, and volunteer service hours must be done for all members. Subsequent meetings will be each Wednesday at 5pm in SAC East room 225. On behalf of the AGS E-board I would like to say that we are looking forward to a great semester and, of course, Welcome Back!
Hi All!I hope you have had and enjoyable break and are now ready for a great spring semester!
Bring a gift for the Teacher Staff Appreciation Dinner, and receive an hour per gift. Remember the gifts are going to be raffled out to instructors and staff from Cabrillo. The dinner will be December 3rd at the cafeteria. If you would like, you can turn in the gift in advanced to any e-board member. Tax Id is in the attached form.
