BURRIS NAMED ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICA

Junior Danielle Burris has been named to the Capital One Academic All-America team for Division III women’s soccer in selections by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Burris, a midfielder, was named as a third team Academic All-America in voting conducted earlier this fall by CoSIDA.

She is the 15th student-athlete in Shenandoah University history to be named Academic All-America and the second from the women’s soccer program.

Shenandoah has had at least one student-athlete earn Academic All-America honors for the past nine years.

Burris is a 3.98 student as a kinesiology/pre-physical therapy major, and earlier this month she was named as the ODAC/Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Scholar-Athlete of the Year for women’s soccer in addition to earning third team All-ODAC accolades.

A Cooksville, Maryland native, Burris is also a candidate for NSCAA Academic honors.

To be eligible for Academic All-America honors, student-athletes must have at least a 3.3 GPA on a 4.0 scale and be a starter or important reserve on their team. Nominees are voted on in one of eight national districts by CoSIDA members with first team All-District honorees moving on to the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.

Off the field, Burris is involved in Habitat for Humanity, Hungry Hearts and Salvation Army, the Alpha Chi National College and Alpha Lambda Delta Academic honor societies, the Health and Life Sciences Club, and she serves as a reading mentor at Quarles Elementary School.

She joins Dr. Renee Summerson, ’09, ’11 D.PT as Academic All-Americans from the Shenandoah women’s soccer program.

YOUR EMAIL MESSAGE FROM NOSEXUALMISCONDUCT@SU.EDU

On Nov. 17, Shenandoah employees received an email from nosexualmisconduct@su.edu. This email account is managed by Assistant Director of Student Conduct & Title IX Coordinator Ashley Wisniewski.

The message – with subject line “Employee Sexual Misconduct Training” – includes a link to a “Consent & Respect” training module.

All faculty and staff: please take 20 minutes to complete the training before Friday, Dec. 19. Even though some information may not be new to you, the training is a requirement of the recently enacted Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act, which clarifies minimum standards for institutions of higher education regarding disciplinary procedures covering domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. (The content deals with assault and may be triggering to some people.) Learn more at Campus SaVE Act. Questions about training, sexual misconduct or Title IX at Shenandoah? Contact Wisniewski at nosexualmisconduct@su.edu.

SUPPORT COMES IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES, SO BRING IN YOUR BRAS AND JOIN THE CUPS OF CHEERS FUNDRAISER

The [Not Just] Women’s Center (NJWC) invites you to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season and the end of the fall semester by donating your new or gently used bras via the Cups of Cheers Fundraiser. The bras will be donated to “Free the Girls,” an organization that focuses its heart on helping to end sex trafficking.

Through this organization, the women of Mozambique and beyond sell these donated bras, which allows them to earn three to five times the minimum wage and gives them greater opportunities.

When you go home for Thanksgiving Break, you are encouraged to bring your bras back to donate. All cup sizes are welcome. Drop off your bras at the Brandt Student Center (BSC) between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 4.

After you donate your bras, continue the celebration by going to Sweet Frog between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. to support the NJWC. Remember, support comes in all shapes and [cup] sizes! For more information, contact NJWC peer mentors Katie Moss at kmoss14@su.edu; Cortney Gensemer at cgenseme13@su.edu; or Ellen Sena at esena11@su.edu.

SUPPORT A FELLOW STUDENT’S RESEARCH BY TAKING THIS SURVEY ABOUT CYBERBULLYING

OF MICE AND OTHER THINGS…

With the changing weather, some of you in your residence halls and offices may encounter the uninvited company of creatures we normally prefer outdoors… mostly ants, stinkbugs and mice.

There’s little to be done to keep them out, as they’re looking for shelter. However, you can help reduce the longevity of their stay by reducing their food source.

Stink bugs are easy; vacuum them up, or sweep them into a dust pan and throw them outside.

Ants are more problematic, as they’ll subsist on the tiniest bit of food left behind; crumbs and sticky residue are a feast for these insects. You can vacuum them up as well, or spray them with any variety of bug spray; and, be sure to empty your trash regularly.

Similarly, mice will eat things we wouldn’t think about… not just cereal, ramen noodles, cheese crackers and candy. They’ll also eat scented candles, toothpaste and cosmetics. It’s best to keep food in your dorm-sized fridge, or in glass or metal containers. No food means a better chance of not having mice.

The presence of this type of intruder may be disconcerting, but it’s rarely an emergency. As always, you are encouraged to submit work orders when these concerns arise.

To put in a work order, visit www.su.edu and scroll to black section at the bottom of the page. Look for the “In The Portal” section and click on the link called “Put in a work order.” Questions? Contact Director of Physical Plant Barry Schnoor at bschnoor@su.edu.

SEHD DOCTORAL CANDIDATE PREPARES TO DEFEND DISSERTATION

Veronique Walker, a candidate for the degree of Doctor of Education in organizational leadership, will defend her dissertation, “African American Women Superintendents: Perceptions of Barriers and Strategies Accessing the Superintendency,” at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 2, in the Bowman Building, Room 112. Members of the Shenandoah University community are invited to attend. Committee: Clarresa Morton, Ph.D., Chair; Catherine Shiffman, Ph.D.; and Dennis Kellison, Ed.D. For more information, contact Dr. Morton at cmorton@su.edu.

PLEASE NOTE THIS PERMANENT CHANGE TO THE CAMPUS TRAFFIC PATTERN AT THE SOUTHERN END OF MAIN CAMPUS

As Phase One of the Millwood Public Improvement Project nears completion, a final step in the process is to alter the campus traffic pattern at the southern end of main campus, specifically in front of Ohrstrom-Bryant Theatre (OBT). As of Nov. 10, the stretch of roadway directly in front of OBT is closed to through traffic. Access is for parking spaces only.

When entering campus from University Drive near OBT, vehicles should turn right to access the old stretch of Millwood Avenue. This allows for access to the Vickers Communications Center and campus space east of Abrams Creek. Directional signs have been posted; view a map of the area here. Use the same route when exiting campus from Wade Miller Drive. View the full campus map here.

As a reminder, Beltone is private property; this driveway and parking lot should not be used as entry to or exit from campus.
