Announcements:

• Once again, UWG is being represented in the National Rockonomix Contest. Kim Holder's classes at UWG are supplying the demand and want you to "Save."

Their economics themed music video parody is competing against the students of Northern Kentucky University, the University of Wisconsin ­ La Crosse and Cal Poly State University.

Rockonomix is a student-produced music video parody project that uses popular beats combined with economic lyrics to promote student learning. You can watch the videos and cast your vote online at rockonomix.com. Voting will close on June 12 at 12 p.m.

• Is your department or unit planning activities and events around Homecoming and the Presidential Inauguration, September 18-20? If so, consider sharing your information with Alumni Relations and we can market your event to a larger audience. Contact alumni@westga.edu.
