We would like to remind everyone that if you need help with writing papers, doing research, writing citations and reference pages, or just another pair of eyes to look over your work, stop by the library and see Tina Walker, Library Director. Remember you don’t have to do everything alone.
Finals are only 3 weeks away!
Even though we all had quite a bit of fun over Thanksgiving Break, it’s time to settle back into the rest of the semester, which is only 3 weeks left before finals. Hopefully everyone had a safe and wonderful break; please remember that they library staff are here for you to help with final papers or projects.
Christmas CarolReview over the Christmas Carol was done by MCC students, faculty, and Community Members. It was performed at the Fox Theater Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The following is from the director Sue Watts:
Christmas Carol 2012 marked our twelfth production of the show. We began in 1993, with Don Harpst as Scrooge and Phil Lyons as the Ghost of Christmas Past and have been doing it every other year (sometimes every year) since then, with Don and Phil still in those roles. This is the third production at the Fox Theater. This production was warmly received by large, responsive audiences. The actors and backstage crews worked very hard and had fun putting together this excellent production. The first Tiny Tim, Christopher Lyons, graduated from UNL, and is now serving with the Peace Corps in Mongolia. The turkey has been with the show for five productions.
