“The Double”

Sunday, July 27, 2014
3:00 pm – 5:30 pm
“The Double” is shown at 3 p.m. by the Winchester Film Club 3.0 at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. In this 2013 film, Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg) is a timid office clerk working in an ominous government organization. He is overlooked by his boss (Wallace Shawn) and colleagues, scorned by his mother, and ignored by Hannah (Mia Wasikowska), the lovely copy room girl he pines for. Undermined and undervalued everywhere he turns, it seems that his directionless life couldn’t get any worse until the arrival of James Simon, his new co-worker. James is both Simon's exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and seductive with women. Tickets are $7 online or at the door. (Winchester Film Club 3.0 helps bring indie, foreign, classic and documentary film to the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Screenings are open to the public, and membership is not required.)

Rising senior Jaclyn Mohlmann and the Hornets women’s track & field program have been honored by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) for academic achievement in selections announced on July 22, by the organization.

Mohlmann, an MBA student, was named as a USTFCCCA Scholar-Athlete while also being a member of a women’s program that earned All-Academic team honors.

All student-athletes competing at either the NCAA Indoor or Outdoor National Championships with GPAs of at least 3.30 on a 4.0 scale were eligible for the individual award.

The USTFCCCA recognized all teams achieving at least a 3.1 average GPA on a 4.0 scale.

Mohlmann has a 3.46 GPA following her first year in the MBA program.

The 15-woman track & field program had a 3.22 average GPA this past year. That squad was one of 12 (of 20) at Shenandoah to achieve at least a 3.0 GPA.

SULLIVAN ADDED TO WOMEN’S HOOPS STAFF

Shenandoah University Head Women’s Basketball Coach Melissa Smeltzer-Kraft announced on July 21, that she has added Meghan Sullivan to her staff as lead assistant.

Smeltzer-Kraft, who took over the program in May, brings Sullivan on as her full-time assistant.

Sullivan, a 2010 graduate of Elmira (N.Y.) College, comes to Shenandoah after four seasons as an assistant coach at Catholic University of America.

While at CUA, the Elmira, New York native helped the Cardinals to a pair of Landmark Conference titles and was the first assistant on a staff that was named Landmark Coaching Staff of the Year in 2013-14.

The Cards were regionally or nationally ranked in three of her four seasons at the school.

She also earned her Master’s Degree in management with a leadership concentration from Catholic in 2014.

“I was very impressed with Meghan throughout the interview process,” Smeltzer-Kraft said. “She is passionate about coaching basketball and Division III. She has been part of successful programs as both a student-athlete and a coach, and I know she will bring that winning mentality to our program as well.”

As a student-athlete, Sullivan was a four-year member of the Soaring Eagles program, assisted them to an Empire 8 title in 2007 and graduated magna cum laude as a business administration major.

With the Hornets, Sullivan will be involved in all aspects of the program including practice and game management, opponent scouting and player development.

WEIGH IN ON THE NEW SHENANDOAH ATHLETICS MARK

Shenandoah University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Doug Zipp has announced a series of open houses to gather feedback about the logo designs for the university’s new primary athletics mark.

In February, the university contracted with Skye Dillon Design of Florham Park, New Jersey to design new athletic marks and the design process on the primary mark is preparing to be completed.

Before a primary mark is selected, the design committee, led by Zipp, will hold presentations discussing the process including its origins, its current state and the next steps before selecting a new logo.

A series of prospective primary marks will be unveiled as part of the presentation and feedback on these marks from those in attendance is invited.

Student-athletes, Shenandoah faculty and staff and fans are all encouraged to attend one of these presentations and offer their thoughts on the prospective primary marks.

Public presentations are planned for 2 p.m. on Monday, July 21; 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 22; and 8 a.m. on Thursday, July 24. All presentations will be held in Halpin-Harrison Hall, Room 226, and are planned for durations of 30-45 minutes.

In addition to a new primary mark, secondary marks as well as a font system are being designed. The public will be invited to offer feedback on the secondary marks and font systems later this summer.

HORNET CENTRAL: THE ONE-STOP CENTER FOR REGISTRATION AND FINANCIAL SERVICES

The folks at Hornet Central are ready to eliminate the “Shenandoah shuffle” by providing a one-stop location for registration and finance. Students can work with a student service specialist who can take care of their registration and financial needs.

At Hornet Central, students can make student account payments; register and make changes to their schedules; receive answers to basic student account and financial aid questions; pick up and drop off forms for Hornet Central, the Registrar, Financial Aid and Student Accounts; and pick up transcripts.

Cross training of all Hornet Central staff will be completed by the end of July. Questions? Contact Hornet Central Manager Susan Dawson at sdawson@su.edu or Hornet Central Assistant Manager Becky Lins at rlins@su.edu.

PREGNANT? HELP PA STUDENTS PRACTICE THEIR MONITORING SKILLS

The Physician Assistant Program seeks pregnant individuals who are in their second or third trimester to serve as standardized patients and help students become more proficient measuring the size of the unborn child (determining fundal height) and listening to those little heartbeats (auscultate fetal heart tones).

Standardized patients are paid for their time. If you are available Thursday, Aug. 7, from 1 to 3 p.m. and/or Tuesday, Aug. 19, from 3 to 5 p.m., please contact SUPA Clinical Team member Joanna Filson at jfilson@su.edu or 540/542-6211.

ATHLETICS SUMMER SERIES ANNOUNCED

On June 18, the Shenandoah University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics begins its sixth annual ‘summer series’.

This series starts with a look at the Top 10 moments from the 2013-14 athletic year, continues with the announcements of recruiting classes for each of the 21 intercollegiate teams and concludes with the start of the fall sport practices in late August.

In addition to the Top 10 list on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the series features a different sport schedule being unveiled every Monday, ‘#ThrowbackThursday’ and Senior Spotlight on Fridays. 

The Top 10 list runs from Wednesday, June 18, through Wednesday, July 23, before football leads off the recruiting announcements on Tuesday, July 29. One program a day will release its recruiting class with baseball anchoring the segment with its class announcement on Wednesday, Aug. 20.

From the opening soccer/soccer/field hockey tripleheader to Jaclyn Mohlmann competing in the NCAA Championships at Ohio Wesleyan, the Shenandoah University Intercollegiate Athletics Department had a great deal to be proud of in 2013-14. The summer series is the department’s annual attempt to capture the best moments of the past year as well as looking forward to next season.
