When Severe Weather Approaches…

The Recreation Services staff has gotten plenty of practice executing the emergency action plan for severe weather over the past week. With more severe weather in the forecast, we’d like to pass along a few tips in case you are in our facilities and the sirens are activated.
When the outdoor siren is activated, you will be advised by our facilities staff to seek shelter in the locker rooms at SRC-North and the dumbbell room at SRC-South. Patrons in the Student Aquatic Center will be evacuated to the locker rooms in the SAQ. It is recommended you stay in these gathering areas until any active warnings expire.

A Typical Night at the SRC-North?

Outside of the normal cardio sessions, weightlifting routines, intramural sports competitions and group fitness classes, two unique and vastly different events took place Thursday, April 7 in the Student Recreation Center-North/Student Aquatic Center. The 2002 movie “Enough” starring Jennifer Lopez was shown in the Student Aquatic Center as part of Enough Is Enough Week.

Just a few feet away, a group of students enjoyed a game of Cricket in the West Gym. The picture shown here provided some excitement as the ball traveled just a few feet above my head!

Redinger one of four winners in Sustainability Idea Competition

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Dec. 2, 2010 – The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Southeast Missouri State University has announced the winners of the 2010 Sustainability Idea Competition held during the recent Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The competition sought the best ideas for promoting a campus culture of sustainability. The competition was jointly sponsored by the Office of the President, the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and the University Sustainability Committee. Submissions were evaluated by a student, staff, faculty, and administrator panel.

The panel recognized four first-place winning submissions and three honorable mention submissions.  Redinger was announced as the winner of the Staff category.

Here is a summary of his submission:
Signs of Change–The proposal from Redinger is to use appropriate signage on campus to call attention to current efforts to improve sustainability on campus and to encourage even greater awareness and interest in sustainability. The proposed signage would highlight visible “signs of change” taking place at Southeast and would be viewed by both current members of the University community and visitors to the campus. Redinger indicated that signage is relatively inexpensive and provides “a lot of bang for the buck” in promoting sustainability on campus.
