Film Showing: "Frankie and Alice" - Dec 2

The Women's Resource Center and the Human Services Technology department will be hosting a film showing on Tuesday, December 2 from 10:00-12:00 pm in Leslie 143.

The film, Frankie and Alice, is a 2010 psychological drama inspired by a remarkable true story of a popular black go-go dancer in the 70's with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). The film portrays Frankie's (played by Halle Berry) struggle with 2 alternate identities as well as her treatment; as she begins working with a psychiatrist who helps her reclaim her life.

Our goal is to help students, faculty, and staff gain insight regarding the struggles of clients dealing with mental health issues. Frankie and Alice explores complex issues of violence, tragedy, racism, and family dysfunction. Halle Berry worked with The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to bring awareness and support to people struggling with mental illness. Since the DVD's release on August 21, NAMI created a discussion guide for the film. We will engage the audience in a discussion at the end of the film utilizing materials from NAMI.

All students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend. If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact Olivia Sutton at 7222.  See the "Frankie and Alice" trailer on YouTube®.


First meeting of PCC's Philosophy Club - Dec 3

Time and Location: Wednesday, Dec 3, 2:00 pm, CER 102

We will meet briefly in order to introduce what we hope to do in the spring as well as to obtain the signatures required for us to move forward for official recognition by the College. So far, the idea is pretty straightforward: we gather over food - pizza or subs or whatever - and talk casually through an issue or two, perhaps once a month. Before each meeting, the faculty advisor will post a few articles on Moodle for members to read in advance so that we can have an informed discussion. The Philosophy Club will therefore run a bit like a book club - except, of course, we won't be discussing whole books.

Although the Club is open to any student at PCC, we would encourage only those students who have completed ENG 111 and one of the following courses to attend: HUM 115, PHI 240, or REL 110.


Priority Registration for Spring 2015 ends Dec 5

Students who register during this period have the best choice of classes. Contact your academic advisor today for help in creating your Spring 2015 schedule.

Note: Payment for classes added during this time period is due by 5:00 pm on Dec 15.
