As I posted last week,  Professor Ed Taylor is showing a documentary on Thursday. I just learned that TCC students in Taylor's Documentary Filmmaking class will also show their documentary, "Cathedrals of Downtown Tulsa," making Thursday's event a Documentary Double Feature! This is a great opportunity to sit inside a comfy, air-conditioned building and learn more about our world and our awesome city!
When: 1 p.m. Thursday
Where: Event Space, Center for Creativity
Why: To learn about study abroad, service learning, documentary filmmaking, cathedrals in Tulsa, etc.

Professor to debut documentary about students helping Nicaragua community

Caption: Professor Ed Taylor, whose hand can be seen holding his camera on the far right, will premiere a documentary about TCC students in Nicaragua on Aug. 2. 

A 40-minute documentary that follows Dental Hygiene and Nursing students on their recent service learning trip to Nicaragua will premier next week. The premier showing of "TCC in Nicaragua....An Excellent Adventure" is 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2 in the Event Space in the Center for Creativity on TCC's Metro Campus.

If you are thinking about taking a class that requires a service learning component, thinking about ways to volunteer, or thinking about taking a study abroad class, this is a great opportunity to hear directly from students.

Want to quickly figure your summer grade? Here's a website to help

After making a not-so-wonderful grade on my mid-term, I decided I needed to figure out what my current grade is in my summer class. I'm not a whiz at math, and so I googled to find a website that would figure my letter grade for me quickly. Sure, I could have done it myself if I wanted to invest some time, but I wanted to figure it out fast so was my answer.
All you have to do is enter the number of points you received and the number of points possible. Then, the calculator figures the percentage. Obviously, you can see from that percentage if it is an A (90 & above), B (80 & above), C (70 & above), etc.

The website gives you a couple of different options of figuring your grade. I used the second one, BTW. Good luck with the rest of your semester!
