Centre promises "personal education," and a big part of "personal" is knowing the persons who are part of your community. For that reason, we frequently include a photo of the individual making the submision—to help bring "names and faces together." If you prefer not to have your picture included, just say so on your submission and we'll honor that personal request as well.

The dates for Centre Family Weekend 2010 have been changed to Sept. 17 and 18. After checking with the Danville hotels, we learned the local rates during the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington (Sept. 25-Oct. 10) will be on average $199 a night, with minimums of 3-5 nights. We assumed parents would not want to pay these rates or have to fight the predicted crowd of 600,000+ spectators and teams expected. While we have no way of knowing for certain what the impact of the World Equestrian Games will be for Danville, we felt it better not to take chances, and moved the date. We hope you will mark your calendar and make plans to join us!
Holiday Reminder. Residence halls and houses do not close for Thanksgiving Break. There is, however, limited meal service. Residence halls and houses do close for the holiday break Dec. 12 through Jan. 4 at noon. You will be sent a Survey Monkey survey later this month to sign up if you are staying over the Thanksgiving Break. This is for security and meal preparation. You will receive another survey the first week of December regarding the holiday break. We will try and accommodate flight schedules, (within a day), etc. if you let us know in advance. Please begin to make your travel arrangements accordingly.
Simon Fellowship for Noble Purpose. Established by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, the Simon Award recognizes graduating college seniors who are pursuing lives dedicated to and distinguished by honor, generosity, service, and respect. The Simon Fellowship is a $40,000 unrestricted grant awarded to those graduating college seniors who have demonstrated passion, dedication, a high capacity for self-direction, and originality in pursuit of a goal that will strengthen civil society.

The program runs every weekday from 3:15 to 4:30 or 5:30 p.m. (depending on when the parents are available to pick up the kids).

The Angels Are Here! Each year, the Centre College community generously supports Angels from the Salvation Army to ensure these children have a brighter holiday season. This year we have started with 55 angels who need adopting by members of our community.

If you would like to adopt an Angel this season, and help make a child’s holiday season a little brighter, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information – or look for the Angel Trees which will be out in Crounse and the Campus Center this week!
