JAVA the HUTT – Campus Events

If you have an event on campus which would involve serving coffee/danish or pastries, please remember to give Java the Hutt "a chance to submit a quote" on your event. Since they are on our campus, we like for them to have a chance to quote on events. If you find a lower vendor, you certainly go with the lower bid. However, please remember to allow Java the Hutt the chance to bid.

The Great SouthEast ShakeOut

At 10:17 a.m. on October 17, 2013, millions of people will “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” in The Great SouthEast ShakeOut, the region's largest earthquake drill ever! All colleges and universities have been encouraged to participate in the drill.  Virginia Western has been registered and is looking to you for voluntary participation.  We ask that you look over the ShakeOut link and determine if your participation may be something we can count on.  This is strictly a voluntary venture on your part.  If as a staff or faculty member you wish to join in, all you need to do is click the link (ShakeOut Drill Video) either in your classroom or in your office on October 17 at 10:17 AM and play along.

Major earthquakes may happen anywhere you live, work, or travel. The ShakeOut is our chance to practice and discuss how to protect ourselves, and for everyone to become prepared. The goal is to prevent a major earthquake from becoming a catastrophe for you, our organization, and our community.

Why is a “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” drill important?  You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake before strong shaking knocks you down, or something falls on you.

Feedback: if you are a “prepper” and decided to participate (good for you!!) please send an email and let me know how the event was received by you, your counterparts, and/or students.

Thank you and have fun with this event!!
