Western works hard to provide for the safety of the campus community. It does so in many ways, as can be seen on the Campus Safety Resources website. As part of this continuing effort, the Central Health and Safety Committee has recommended that three safety drills be performed per year: lockdown, earthquake and fire. Supporting this recommendation, the all-campus lockdown drill will take place in conjunction with the Fall Western Alert Test on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 9:35 a.m.

Laurie Nesheim is retiring from Western this fall. She first came to campus as a freshman in 1981 so this has been her educational and professional home for 36 years. Laurie worked for University Residences and the Western Front as a student then graduated with a degree in Visual Communications Education. Since then she has worked in Publishing Services, the Alumni Office, and the Western Foundation.
As we all prepare ourselves for the new quarter, your colleagues at the Professional Development Program would once again like to play a supportive role in your growth and development. We have a new schedule of professional development workshops on skills ranging from planning your many projects to using the Adobe Suite for design.
