NMSU joins global GivingTuesday movement to build scholarships

GivingTuesday is a global day for giving when people and organizations all over the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to contribute to causes that matter to them. Locally, that day will have a direct impact on student success at New Mexico State University.

On Dec. 1, 2015, GivingTuesday will unify alumni, students, faculty, staff, businesses and community members as NMSU celebrates generosity by providing people everywhere with an opportunity to make a difference.

Gifts can go to any cause, college, campus or department. To further the impact of gifts on GivingTuesday, NMSU will use the day as an opportunity to build scholarships across campus by implementing an exciting matching gift incentive. On GivingTuesday, every dollar donated to a scholarship anywhere in the NMSU system will be matched dollar for dollar.


ASNMSU Center for the Arts brings ?Frankenstein? to life

The American Southwest Theatre Company and New Mexico State University Department of Theatre Arts will present ?Frankenstein? by R. N. Sandberg at the ASNMSU Center for the Arts.

This version of the classic story is set in the icy Polar Regions where scientist Victor Frankenstein has chased his creation to the final confrontation. The script is not the traditional story of the creation of the monster; instead, it takes place later after the monster has escaped his creator and is wreaking havoc wherever he goes.

?This is a highly emotional story,? said Tom Smith, NMSU professor of theater arts and director of ?Frankenstein.? ?Frankenstein feels physically and emotionally abandoned and every action he takes is solely to regain the love and attention of his father. There?s a real sense of tragedy that underlies the story.?
