The Take Back the Night Alamogordo annual march and rally, co-sponsored by SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners), SART (Sexual Assault Response Team), SNMWA (Southern New Mexico Wellness Alliance), and NMSU Alamogordo, will be held on April 11th, 2014 from 7 to 9 pm at the NMSUA Tays Center, which is located on the corner of Scenic Drive and Indian Wells.
Everyone is invited to come out in support of the community, take a stand against sexual assault and domestic violence, and share in an evening of education and entertainment. The first 300 participants will receive free T- shirts. In addition, there will be the chance to win terrific door prizes and to watch Zumba and Tai Kwando demonstrations. Community agencies will be displaying information on the services they provide to prevent sexual assault and domestic violence, to be sure that perpetrators of these crimes are prosecuted, and to support victims in the healing process.
Together, we can foster awareness of the needless suffering caused by domestic violence and sexual abuse in our community. For more information, call event co-chair Fran Johnston at 575-434-3519 or email her at email@example.com.
As a unique commemoration of National Library Week (April 13-19), students from NMSU-A’s communications classes (led by professors Wakkinen and Gallagher) have recorded readings from Guy de Maupassant’s “The Necklace” and Saki’s “Open Window”. The student readings will be broadcast as a serialized radio drama on KALH 95.1 FM in Tularosa. Station owner and manager, Ken Bass, is excited about these presentations and will interview our Library Director, Sharon Jenkins, about the project and other upcoming library events.
This year the data closet for our network access has been relocated to the newly constructed room in our Business Office. In order that this upgrade meet codes, all new wiring is taking place in the Community Education Office, Business Office, and all of the Administration Offices.
Hats off to Rusty Jaskolowski, David Sanders, and Chris Sisneros from NMSU-A’s Computer Support Services for taking on this necessary project!

New Mexico SUN Online Course Enrollment Opportunity Begins Summer 2014.
Students if there is a class you really need to take that is not offered in the NMSU system, there may be another opportunity for you to enroll. SUN Online is an online course sharing system with colleges all across New Mexico. You actually register for the course through NMSU-A, your grade will come through the NMSU-A system, and your transcript will show you took the course from NMSU-A, but you will actually be in an online class at another college in New Mexico. This is a great opportunity for you to have access to courses that might not be available when you need them. For more information on available courses, see your advisor. More detail about SUN Online can be found at http://skillupnetwork.org/students.
