Greetings! We have been going through a lot of changes with the Student Library Advisory Committee since last spring! Several of our club officers have graduated and we have been working with some new students, staff, and policies. As the school year continues, we have been striving to achieve our goals of gaining new members, refocusing our meetings on library related topics, and discussing plans for a service learning project within the club. Please stop by the library to talk with Jill or Christina if you have any questions!
Our meeting times are every other Tuesday at 3:30pm in SCB 1515. Next meeting will be February 4th. See you then!!
I would like to formally apologize for the haphazard and lack of updates. Our meetings these last couple of weeks have been sporadic due to weather and other things going on.
However, yesterdays meeting went off without a hitch. We were joined by some new visitors who sat in on our meeting and got to see and experience what SLAC is all about. It was great being joined by some fresh faces and hope to see more new faces as the semester goes on!
We talked a little about the Oscars this past Sunday (congratulations to Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse), watched YouTuber Trisha Paytas sing “Satisfied” from the Broadway show Hamilton, and talked a little bit about how classes are going this semester.
Last week, Brandon, Anakin and myself record the highly anticipated Harry Potter episode of the 1515 Podcast! We discussed our houses and patronesses (Anakin is a Gryffindor, Brandon is a Slytherin and I am a Ravenclaw), talked about the movies and the books and be warned- there are many spoilers! The episode will be up in just a few short days.
Our next 1515 Podcast episode will center around Disney & Pixar!
We’ll be discussing the upcoming Lion King, Aladdin and Dumbo remakes and talking all things Disney & Pixar. Stay tuned for that episode in the next coming weeks!
Reminder: Meetings take place on Tuesdays at 3:30 PM in 1515 located in the HCC Libary.
We officially had our first meeting of the new semester on August 29th! We welcomed a new member, Hannah and had the general “get to you know you”-style meeting. It’s so great to officially be back and to be writing on this blog again.
This past Tuesday we welcomed another new member, Kaylee and recorded a brand new episode of the 1515 Podcast! After a few moments of technical difficulties, we finally were able to record with no further problems. We discussed the films we saw this summer and everything that went down at Comic-Con. We’ll be back in two-ish weeks with another episode, we’ll be discussing all the films coming out in the Fall/Winter of 2018 and the new images in Entertainment Weekly from the Captain Marvel film!
Happy Almost School Year, SLACers! Oh how I’ve missed this blog and all it’s geeky glory.
As the school year quickly approaches Brandon, Lauren and myself have been busy discussing our plans for activities and events for SLAC.
After much discussion, we have changed our meeting day! Our new meeting day will be on Tuesdays @ 3:30 PM, still located in room 1515 in the Library which is located in the SCB.
Our podcast, The 1515 Movie Podcast will be back next fall! We will be bringing you brand new, 30 minute episodes every other week. If there are topics you want us to discuss or share our opinions on, please let us know in the comments.
SLAC will be hosting a book sale on campus in 2 weeks! Be sure to check out the bulletin boards around Heartland for more information as it will be available very soon!
The Fall Semester begins on August 20th! Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, August 28th @ 3:30 PM!
Good luck to everyone this semester and stay tuned for new announcements!
Happy May the 4th Be With You or “Star Wars” Day SLACers!
We recorded a new episode of the podcast yesterday, I will be posting that later this weekend! We discussed all things Avengers: Infinity War (and we managed to discuss it in only an hour which I’m still impressed by).
DC Fans, your time has finally come. Next week we will be discussing the DC Film Universe! We’ll be talking about about the last 5 years of the films, including Suicide Squad, Batman v. Superman and Wonder Woman! We actually talked a little bit after recording the podcast episode about the DCU and all the (questionable) choices it has made in terms of casting, plot, films, etc.
If you haven’t already, check out our latest poll in the library! We picked 4 different films that are coming out this summer and it’s your job to decide which one you’ll be seeing (but you can see all of them outside of the one you picked). Your options are Solo: A Star Wars Film, Ant Man & Wasp, Mission Impossible: Fallout and Incredibles 2 (which is in the lead with 34 votes).
and with that, I will leave you all with this awesome gif of Wonder Woman to lead you into the weekend and into the dreaded FINALS week.
*Our last SLAC lunch will be held on May 18th, 2018 at 1:00 PM. We will be going to Biaggi’s!
