Once the semester begins and students have had an opportunity to purchase textbooks at the bookstore; we return the unsold items to the vendors to make room for next semesters books. We remind students before returning textbooks so they know to come purchase the textbooks while they are still on hand.
Please make your final textbook purchases and pick-up all special orders before 5pm on March 5th, 2015. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Daniel Simerly or me at 461-8733.

The sounds of the season will ring through the Mary B. Martin Auditorium of Seeger Chapel at Milligan College when the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Robert J. Seebacher, presents “Home for the Holidays” on December 13. Joining the symphony will be the City Youth Ballet of Johnson City. The concert is sponsored by BedInABox.
The City Youth Ballet is a chartered, not-for-profit performance organization offering an extensive repertoire of classical and contemporary ballet performances for the general public and school groups throughout the year. The CYB provides high quality performances of classical ballets such as “The Nutcracker,”
“A Christmas Carol,” “Cinderella,” and “Coppelia,” as well as contemporary and lesser known ballets such as “Dracula,” “Peter and the Wolf,” and “Hans Christian Andersen.” Original, commissioned works are also part of the CYB’s repertoire. Along with the expertise of Susan Pace, the CYB’s artistic director, the CYB invites guest dancers and teachers from internationally celebrated companies and schools to conduct workshops for its dancers and for interested community members. The City Youth Ballet will join the symphony for the performance of “The Polar Express” Concert Suite by Alan Sylvestri and Glen Ballard and arranged by Jerry Brubaker.
Other holiday-themed work on the program for this concert includes “March of the Toys” from Victor Herberts Babes in Toyland, Mel Tormé’s “The Christmas Song”, “Festive Sounds of Hanukkah” arranged by Bill Holcombe, the “Pastoral Symphony” from The Messiah by George Fredrich Handel, Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Polonaise” from Christmas Eve and “Dance of the Tumblers” from The Snow Maiden, and more, including a Christmas Sing-a-long.
The December 13th “Home for the Holidays” concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Mary B. Martin Auditorium of Seeger Chapel at Milligan College. Individual concert tickets are $35, $30 for seniors (65+), and $10 for students. Season tickets are still available online at www.jcsymphony.com or by calling the symphony office at 423-926-8742. Tickets for the entire season range from $70 to $150. The symphony accepts Master Card, Visa, and Discover.

- Inclement weather policy reminder
With the weather turning colder, this is a good time for everyone to be reminded of the College’s inclement weather policy. You may review the College’s snow schedule online at http://www.milligan.edu/documents/snow-schedule.pdf . When bad weather threatens, all faculty, staff, and students should monitor weather conditions as well as local media outlets. You may view a list of these media outlets in the Milligan College Student Handbook, available online at http://www.milligan.edu/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/student_handbook.pdf , p. 6. On mornings when there will be a weather delay or cancellation, the College will typically notify local media by 6:00 am but most certainly by 6:30 am. Unforeseen changes in weather conditions during the work day may necessitate later decisions on rare occasions. Notification will also occur on the College web home page, on the Milligan Today page, the outbound recording on the College switchboard, and via the College’s Rave text alert system. If you haven’t already signed up for the Rave notification system, now would be a good time to do so. You may sign up at https://www.getrave.com/login/milligan .
The primary consideration for the College in making weather-related scheduling changes will be the safety of faculty, staff, and students. So as we near the season for icy and dicey weather, let’s be alert and safe!
