Welcome to the Decades Week

UACCM would like to welcome everyone back to campus for the start of the Fall 2010 semester! As we near the 50th anniversary of the college's founding, we want to pay tribute to each decade we have been in existence.The Student Government Association (SGA) has planned lots of activities this week, starting with 1960's day on Monday, August 16. Step back in time and celebrate the era of mini-skirts and tie-dyed shirts when Petit Jean Vo-Tech was established as the state's 2nd vocational technical school.
Among today's activities presented by SGA is TOTALLY TATTOOS. Come get a free air brush tattoo from 10 am to 4 pm at Union Station in the Kirk Building.

Also, stop by the “Question Tent” today – come meet your SGA president Doug Welter outside the Fine Arts Auditorium under the red tent.
