Need an attitude adjustment? NMSU hospitality students have just the recipe


At the end of a grueling workweek, sometimes you need a bit of an attitude adjustment to start your weekend off right. Thanks to the School of Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management at New Mexico State University, you can get that attitude adjustment on campus once a month and support student clubs and organizations at the same time.

The Adjustment Project, or TAP, is a monthly social event at 100 West Cafe in Gerald Thomas Hall on the Las Cruces campus. Generally on the first Friday of the month from 5 to 7 p.m., TAP offers beer, wine and specialty cocktails for sale, along with complimentary appetizers and live music. Due to the Labor Day holiday, the next TAP event will take place Sept. 9, and a special Homecoming edition will take place Sept. 30.

Public invited to open forums at NMSU with author and lecturer Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin, a world-renowned author, lecturer on autism, and designer of one-third of the livestock-handling facilities in the United States, will visit New Mexico State University Aug. 25 and 26 to speak to students as well as the local community.

Grandin?s visit is in part due to the "common read" program that is being tested at NMSU. The goal with the common read program is to have all freshmen students read the same book. This semester, the book chosen was Grandin?s ?Thinking In Pictures. My Life With Autism.? In this book, Grandin writes from the dual perspectives of a scientist and a person with autism and how she was able to break boundaries to function in the outside world. Currently, Grandin teaches courses on livestock behavior and facility design at Colorado State University and consults with the livestock industry on facility design, livestock handling and animal welfare.

The following lectures and open forums are free and open to the general public, on a first-come, first-served basis. All lectures will be held at the Atkinson Recital Hall in the Music Center on the NMSU Las Cruces campus.

Thursday, Aug. 25

8:55 to 10:10 a.m.: ANSC 100 class ? Lecture Topic: Grandin?s book, ?Animals Make Us Human?

1 to 3:30 p.m.: University Common Read Open Forum ? Lecture Topic: Grandin?s book, ?Thinking In Pictures. My Life With Autism?

6 to 7:30 p.m. ? Public Open Forum

DACC building to be named for its first president, Alex Sanchez

Dona Ana Community College President Renay Scott announced this week that the original building on DACC Central Campus will be named in honor of Alex Sanchez, the first president of the community college, who served from 1972 to 1978.

The public and the campus community are invited to a celebration from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 26 in Room 75 of Alex Sanchez Hall, formerly known as DAMA. This is the first time a DACC building has been named after a person.

Sanchez started programs that are still educating students today, including radiological technology, building trades, nursing, welding, engineering technology and water utility operations. He worked collaboratively with NMSU and DACC professors to garner a $250,000 EPA grant for the first water and wastewater technology program in New Mexico. In addition, Sanchez secured $1.26 million from the state to build the first building.

His passion for community colleges began at DACC. Sanchez went on to serve as president at several community colleges, including Central New Mexico College in Albuquerque, and Rio Hondo College in Whittier, California. He finished his career at Oregon State University, teaching doctoral students in community college leadership. Sanchez mentored many students in the program, 26 of whom completed their doctoral degrees.

A veteran, Sanchez retired from the Air Force Reserve as a colonel after serving at Tachikawa Air Base in Japan, the Air Force Academy, the Air War College, and the U.S. Air Force Headquarters in the Pentagon. Sanchez and his wife, Elaine, reside in Salem, Oregon.
