PhotosNew Employee Pictures

Greetings New CSI Employees,

I'm addressing employees that I know of who have joined us here at CSI within the last few months to invite you to have your directory photo taken, free, at one of the upcoming sessions I hold in the Canyon building. The next opportunity will be 9 - 11 a.m., Thursday, April 26.

Both of these sessions will be in the Canyon building's old television studio. You're welcome to drop in without an appointment. I'll have everything set up for walk-ins and it takes only a few minutes. I'll send you your photo and it will be added to the CSI website.

A note to the fiscal agencies: I gladly take photos of your employees, too, so please send any of your employees who would like a portrait. 

Hope to meet you all soon. Please note that I will do once-a-month staff photos May through August and those will be held at various outdoor locations, to be announced later.

Thanks everyone!

GiveBackEagles Give Back to Our Community
This year marks our third Eagles Give Back volunteer day. The primary goal of the service day is to have students engage with local community organizations and provide a service. Through these experiences, we hope to discuss community, partnerships, and their role in active citizenship. This year, we are looking to partner with Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a non-profit organization that builds bunk beds for kids in need. There was a recent episode on Mike Rowe's show, Returning the Favor. You can see the episode here: http://mikerowe.com/2018/02/returning-the-favor-sleep-in-heavenly-peace/

We are hoping to do a build on Saturday, April 28th from 9-12pm with about 100 student leaders. Our goal is to make 20 bunk beds! This organization not only builds the bunk bed, but supplies kids with the appropriate bedding including a mattress, sheets, pillows, and comforter. This way kids are receiving more than a hollow bed, but everything they need to get a good night's rest.

We would love to have you participate!

Option 1) Donate your time by joining us

Option 2) Donate new bedding, we need the following:
  • Standard Pillow and Pillow Case
  • Standard Flat Sheet and Fitted Sheet
  • Twin Size Comforter

Option 3) Donate money and we'll buy the supplies on your behalf.

You can sign up by e-mailing Samra or donate the bedding by dropping it off in the Student Affairs Office, SUB, 2nd Floor. Let us know if you would like to be a part of this experience.

April 25 - 28 and May 2, 3, and 5 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Theater  

"Blood will have blood".... The CSI Theater Department, in collaboration with CSI Dance and Music, present a modernization and reimagining of Shakespeare's most exciting play, Macbeth. With original compositions, choreography, and design, we will explore the themes of vengeance, ambition, violence and the roles of men and women in our culture. This is not the traditional Shakespeare you experienced in English class. You will experience a fast-paced, visually exciting, spectacle as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth murder their way to the crown pushed onward by the supernatural, led into the depths of guilt and insanity by their violent and vaulting ambition. Tickets: $10/adults or $5/seniors or students. CSI students are free.
