E-Bulletin of February 26,
While offices are undergoing renovation on the second floor of the Student
Center, the Registration, Advisement, Enrollment Service and Financial
Aid offices have moved into the area previously occupied by the college
bookstore. These are temporary quarters for approximately six months.
The moving process was described by several staff members as surprisingly
smooth. While privacy is minimal, the area is large enough to accommodate
all quite comfortably. Photos here.

Role of the Church from Slavery to Today
Rev. Michele Bazin, senior pastor of New Horizon Baptist in Groveville,
N.J. implored MCCC students to become a vital part of their churches and
other places of worship in her spirited presentation, The Role of
the Church from Slavery to Today, one of a series of Black History
Month events coordinated by the African American Student Organization.
Referring to the historical origins of the black church and its relevance
both past and present, Rev. Bazin stressed the need of the church to clearly
define its relevancy for todays youth. The church needs your
ideas, enthusiasm and energy, she said. We need to make the
church more relevant to you, to be able to communicate with you. We need
to start anew. I encourage you to live your dream and do all that you
can do. Have fun but have a purpose.

Fagan Presents Talk for Princeton Photography Club
With themes that
echoed last season's Dangerous Women Two exhibit at the MCCC Gallery,
Curator Tricia Fagan presented an hour-long slide lecture for approximately
50 members and guests of the Princeton Photography Club at the D&R
Greenway on Feb. 11. Her focus was three women photographers -- Gertrude
Kasebier, Berenice Abbott and Margaret Bourke-White -- who are recognized
not only as pioneering women photographers of the 20th century, but are
also generally considered to be among the best in the field. "Kasebier
was a pioneer in the early stages of pictorial photography. The 50-year
span up to Bourke-White, which includes Abbott, is the trajectory during
which photography evolved from pictorial to photodocumentary," Fagan
said. All three photographers were active in this region, with both Kasebier
and Bourke-White residing in New Jersey. Photo here.
