NCA Accreditation Team to Campus The North Central Accreditation team will be arriving on campus this Sunday. The specialized study, cen- tered on the Renaissance of Shared Values, will accentuate the positive changes and additions to Glenville State College and allow us to work with the accreditation team to provide accurate information about all aspects of the institution. The word renaissance reminds us that these values are not anything new for Glenville, but instead repre- sent values that have been in place since our incep- tion more than 130 years ago. They are the values we live by and those which we embrace in dealing with our students, our colleagues and our community. Simply stated they are: civili~ excellence, faimess, freedom, integrity, responsibility and tolerance. Recruitment Efforts Intensify As spring approaches, Glenville State College is intensifying their recruitment efforts. Recruitment is the key to our future success and we are focusing on spreading the word about this outstanding institution. Spring Open House and campus visitation day is set for this Saturday, Apnl 6. Prospective students and their parents are scheduled to be on campus throughout the day for campus tours, special aca- demic presentations and a private concert by our very own GSC Percussion Ensemble. If you know of prospective students interested in attending, contact the Admissions Ot~e at 462-4128. Following the open house weekend, an intense call- ing plan involving our current atudents, faculty, staff, interested alumni and Pre=klential Ambassadors will be implemented. We want to offer a preview of the personalized attention students can expect when they enroll at GSC. As an advocate for GSC, if you would like to be involved in our recruiting efforts please contact College Advancement at 462-4125. GSC remains committed to serving the people of central West Virginia. We are also keenly aware of the fact that the number of high school students in our state is declining. This ill why we are expanding our recruiting efforts to involve an out-of-state corn- portent which highlights our location and the beauty that is central West Virginia. It is called High Adventure and it is being well received by students, teachers and parents throughout the northeast. Wdhout question, we have always and will forever embrace these values as we continue to provide a valuable education in a quality leaming environment.

Professional Development Schools Enhance Teacher Education Curriculum Glenville State College is responding to the changing needs of our teacher education students. Professional Development Schools enhance practical teaching expenence by placing teacher education students in the classroom from the beginning of their academic experience. It develops real partnerships with public schools and offers more individualized attention to the stu- dents in those classrooms. A workshop will be held this weekend and attendees will hear from nationally-acclaimed presenter on Professional Development Schools, Dr. Lucy Begnaud of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
