IEEC went to: Hike Fairfield Observatory Event

This event was a great way to escape SSU campus and get some fresh air this past Saturday! Located near Gravity Hill this large expanse of land is practically untouched with a wide abundance of wild flowers, fallen trees, and small woodland creatures. This event was about three hours long but the reward for climbing all the way to the top gave us a great view of Sonoma County!

Cancelled IEEC Event:  Two Day Retreat in Arnold, California

 Unfortunantly, due to a lack of interest in this event the IEEC has had to cancel this two night trip. But a new soultion has been made with a event on April 30th going to Six Flags Amusement Park!

Happening at SSU

Investiture of Dr. Sakaki

This event starts Thursday, April 20th at 9:00am till 7:30pm. It is located at Weill Hall, Green Music Center.  Different events will be happening throughout that time period so be sure to read the schedule for the day and go be apart of SSU history! The below schedule is taken from the Seawolf living website.

“Investiture Mini Conference | 9 AM – 12 PM

A campus-wide event (open to the public) that will feature many exciting endeavors — including presentations, discussions, and performances born of our campus thinkers and creators around themes of: Community Engagement, Sustainability, Globalization, and Diversity.

Dr Sakaki Investiture Ceremony | 2-4 PM | Weill Hall, Green Music Center

Defined as the “act of ceremony of conferring the authority and symbols of a high office,” an investiture is an academic ceremony in which a new leader is “vested” with the official powers of office. Held during a president’s first year in office, an investiture provides an opportunity to welcome a new chapter in a university’s history and celebrate as a community. In short: “Inauguration” refers to events planned to celebrate a new president, “installation” is the actual moment the new president assumes office and an “investiture” is the ceremony itself.

Campus Reception for Dr Sakaki Investiture | 4-5 PM | Trione Plaza, Green Music Center

A Celebration of the Investiture of  Judy K. Sakaki featuring Hiroshima | 7:30 PM | Weill Hall, Green Music Center

Contemporary jazz masters Hiroshima will be performing as part of the Investiture of Dr. Judy K. Sakaki. “The group, led by Dan Kuramoto, continues to make their own East Meets West contemporary jazz.”

To get tickets go to tickets.sonoma.edu or go to the Student Center Info Desk/Box Office.

The following passage was taken from the Seawolf Living website. Please follow the link below for more information.

http://www.seawolfliving.com/featured/2017/4/4/clothesline-project

“The Clothesline Project was created to bring awareness to the issue of violence against women. For women who have been affected by violence, it is a means of expressing their emotions by decorating a t-shirt. After the shirts have been decorated, they are hung on a clothesline display. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against women.”
