New Faces

The following people have recently joined the Gustavus community:

* New Support Staff

  • Douglas Evans, on-call officer (Campus Safety)
  • Maria McLane, part-time custodian (physical plant)

From the President and the Provost

We write to say thank you, first to the entire community for making Nobel Conference 46 such a success, and to everyone who was involved in all of the many activities surrounding the Conference. We especially want to thank this year's Nobel Committee, chaired by Professor Heldke. The thousands of visitors who attended the conference on our campus or over the Web were made to feel a part of the Conference itself and the campus community.

Both of us heard comments from the presenters, who expressed their deep appreciation for the planning that went into the Conference. We talked to individuals who attended their first conference as well as those who have attended all 46 conferences. The feeling of gratitude was universal.

Thanks to Dr. Niederriter for his leadership and to all those who coordinated the logistics for the Conference. We also want to note how important it was for the presenters to connect with our faculty and students. Thank you to those who helped coordinate the visits of our distinguished guests.  

We now turn our attention to Nobel Conference 47, and know everyone will help Professor Ferragamo and his committee, as we have Professor Heldke and her committee. Next year's conference will be at the start of the College's Sesquicentennial celebration.

News & Announcements

Flu Shot Clinic for Employees... On Wednesday, Oct. 13, from 7:30 a.m. through 12:30 p.m., the College is offering a flu shot clinic for employees in Alumni Hall. The cost is $25, which may be paid by cash or check or billed to your insurance. If you would like the vaccine billed to your insurance, you will need to bring your card to the Flu Shot Clinic; you will also need to provide the policy holder’s name, address, and date of birth. Spouses, domestic partners, and dependents over the age of 18 may also receive the vaccine at the Employee Flu Shot Clinic. This year’s flu shot will protect against Influenza A, Influenza B, and H1N1 Influenza. The flu (influenza) is a highly contagious viral respiratory infection that is spread from person to person primarily when an infected person coughs or sneezes. After a person is infected with the virus, symptoms usually appear in 2-4 days. The symptoms include fever, chills, headache, dry cough, congestion, and muscle aches. Unlike the common cold, influenza can cause extreme fatigue lasting several days to more than a week. All flu shots administered will contain inactivated virus. You CANNOT get the flu from this. PREVENTION IS KEY!

  • Get an annual flu shot.
  • Wash hands FREQUENTLY! Use soap and water or an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your cough! Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your sleeve (not your hand).
  • Avoid sharing food, drinks, water bottles, or personal items with others.
  • Have tissues readily available.
  • Stay home if you are sick. Do not “tough it out” and come to work, classes, or practice if you are ill, especially if you have a fever and are coughing or sneezing. You are exposing others when doing so.

Questions? Stop by Health Service or call (ext. 7630).

Website Tips

Titles Are Important... Actually, titles are the most important part of any page. They not only are one of the highest weighted parts of the page by search engines, but titles also show up as the link text in search engines—so that is what people will read when they make a search and determine if your page is what they are looking for. The rest of your content doesn’t matter if nobody finds it. Like the subject of an e-mail, titles should be descriptive and concise.

For most people, putting together a website is a pretty big project; putting together an effective website can be a Herculean effort. The Gustavus Web Team hopes you will consider these easy tips to make sure all of your effort is focused where it counts.

Plugs

Wanted... Childcare provider for 21-month-old boy every other Friday, 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Contact Bridget at 612-226-0296 for more information.

For Sale... Air-hockey table (approximate size is 6’ x 3’). It is in great shape and would make an excellent gift. $50 or best offer. Call Paul, evenings at 934-3827.

"Plugs" is maintained as a forum by which members of the Gustavus community may offer goods and/or services to others in the community, or seek the same from them. It is not meant to accommodate ads or announcements from area businesses such as real estate agents or retailers, although from time to time such announcements may be published when deemed to be of particular interest to the community.
