Make Your Own Hat

My father once said, “Who needs art anyway?” 

Little did he know he was speaking to a future graphic designer when he uttered those words.

My uncle, who is now an art director in Austin, found inspiration in the work of others. 

Creative works showcase the individuality of others through the expression of different colors, shapes, media, etc. 

“Below the Sight Line” does just this. 

Featuring work from Rebecca Drolen, Priya Kambli, Lupita Tinnen and Jaclyn Wright, this is one event you won't want to miss.

Did you know there is such a thing as a National Button Day? What about a National Button Society? 

I didn't. 

Founded in 1938, the National Button Society recognizes button collecting as an organized hobby. 

As a tribute to buttons everywhere, Nov. 16 was chosen as the national day to celebrate the function of buttons. 

Whether you're a novice or advanced button collector, take part in the celebration by creating your OWN button!

As fall ends and winter makes its yearly appearance, we're reminded of the holiday season. 

With Christmas right around the corner, children everywhere have started to write letters to Santa's Workshop at the North Pole. 

Some letters end up in shoes, Christmas stockings or even a big red mailbox in the mall with the hope that Santa will reply and assure them they have been good this year. 

While (spoiler) Santa is not real, the hopes and dreams of these children certainly are. 

Help the Student Activities Board get ready for the holiday season by writing fun letters from Santa to the local children at Buckner, a foster care and adoption agency.

Movie Poster

The film “Where the Crawdads Sing” follows the story of Kya, who, abandoned as a child, raised herself in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. 

For years, rumors of the “marsh girl” as they called her, haunted the city, isolating Kya from the community. When a man is murdered, she immediately becomes the No.1 suspect. 

Collecting over $90 million domestically and $45 million overseas, this movie can only be described as a box-office success.
