We love having visitors here at the ALC. Today we were privileged to have three visitors from BYU, in our History and Psychology classes. Savannah Burdine, Kayla Stewart and Ruth Bruce are part of the David O McKay Teaching Program and were observing classes, and even lead some of the discussions in the classes.
It is fun to meet new people and it is always great to interact with the colleges.
Thanks for coming today ladies. Good luck with your studies
The Advanced Learning Center is thrilled to announce a new album recorded by our talented students here at the ALC. It is a tribute to Neil Young.
We knew that our students here at the ALC were talented, but "WOW!" This exceeds anything we have heard so far !
We are so proud of these students and look forward to many more songs in the future.
One of the songs on the album is entitled You See Your Baby Loves To Dance, released November 15, 2016 featuring:
This week the ALC has been holding their Utah College Application week. Our teachers have been sharing where they attended college, some of their experiences, as well as the importance for students to attend college. Our wonderful counselor, Annette Pukahi, has been visiting classes, giving information on scholorships, FAFSA, and different college choices. She has specifically helped students in our English 1010 classes fill out college applications. She even put together a fun bingo game for all our students to try and mark off items pertaining to experiences at college.
Last Saturday at 7:30 in the morning, members of the ALC faculty, along with family, registered and then lined up to take part in the Salem Witches 5k run.
It was a beautiful day for a run and in some cases, a walk. The efforts of the ALC Team paid off with all team members winning a loaf of healthy bread and some yummy jam for having great team support the day of the event. Team members also won prizes from the drawing they had. The ALC Team was by far the most energetic during the drawing.
This last week students in Mr. Powell's 3D Graphics and Animation class created 3D Jack O' Lanterns in blender. They used their modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering skills to achieve the desired look for their ghastly creations. The results were spooky! Jack O' Lantern faces ranged from traditional to cartoon characters. The object of the exercise was to introduce the students to organic model techniques. While organic modeling can be difficult the students jumped right in and did a great job!
The ASC, (The Advanced Senior Center), would like to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Halloween.
Today started out at 7:30 with the residents (a.k.a Faculty & Staff) enjoying a wonderful breakfast of fruit and cemebroulie french toast , prepared by our ASC chef, Gaye Cook. There were also fun activites scheduled for noon time, including wheelchair races and bingo.
Our Resident doctor, Dr. Heston Warr, was on hand to supervise these actvities to ensure no one was injured during the races.
