Alexandria Groundbreaking for New Academic Building

Alexandria Groundbreaking for New Academic Building

 

The new three-story 80,000-square-foot academic building will be a state-of-the-art facility, which will incorporate several key elements such as transparent spaces, flexible uses and a visually exciting architectural environment, all in an effort to draw in students and engage their passions.

President Robert G. Templin, Jr., opened the ceremony and stated that the new building is part of a larger effort by the College to increase college access for an additional 25,000 students. The building is the eighth to be constructed at NOVA in a decade, he said.

Following Templin, Alexandria City Mayor William D. Euille congratulated the College for its endless effort in educating not only Alexandria residents, but those students who live “across the nation and around the globe.”

“We look forward to your continued success,” Euille said. “Your best days are yet to come.”

The new building is being constructed to be energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. NOVA Board Chair Michael Wooten said, “The new facility will be better for the environment and for the people who inhabit it.”

Alexandria Provost Ronald Buchanan said two streets on campus will be renamed. A portion of East Campus Drive will be renamed to honor former provost and faculty member Jean Netherton who passed away in 2011. West Campus Drive will be renamed in honor of Dr. Donald L. Bisdorf, the Campus’ first provost.

The new building will house the music, studio arts, dance and drama programs. The structure will also include administrative offices, classrooms, activity rooms, a bookstore and a black box theatre.

The groundbreaking gave everyone a glimpse into the future of NOVA’s continued commitment to excellence.

NOVA STUDENT FILM CLASSES

NOVA STUDENT FILM CLASSES

Dear Colleagues,

In the Fall 2014, CST film students from the Alexandria campus (members of the Film Collaborative International) started the development phase of making 4-shorts films. These included students from my Screenwriting, Film Directing, Acting for the Camera and Film Appreciation classes. Students wrote scripts, auditioned actors, and rehearsed. They were given complete creative control; well almost complete, as I have had to remind them occasionally that NOVA is a state institution.

The objective was 2-fold:  Pretty young woman holding a clapper.

1) Promote film courses

2) Give film students a chance to apply, what they learned in these film classes

The result, by Spring 2014 we went into production; the films were shot & edited and screened at the 1st Annual NOVA Student Film Festival – Alexandria, thanks be to GOD!

Now I am happy to report that I am putting these films into good use. Here is the film classes line up for the Fall 2014: http://blogs.nvcc.edu/lgebre/?page_id=104

Enjoy the films and please help spread the word. As always, I am grateful to the Alexandria Village for your continued support!
