The Homer Production Management Committee (HPMC) recognizes that the need to upgrade the Homer (Banner) student information system to SunGard Banner version 8 has become an overriding priority.  Installation of the upgrade to version 8 needs to be completed by June 2010 as SunGard will no longer support the current version the College is using.  This target date was established by looking at the most opportune times within the various cycles of the constituencies using the system.

Notes On Liberty, a new short documentary directed by John Scott and produced by Karen Rodriguez, will screen as a part of Ad Hoc: Inconvenient Films 2009. This human rights festival travels to three cities in Lithuania in late October and early November. It will also screen in mid-November at the 2009 Cucalorus Annual Festival of Independent Film in Wilmington, NC. And, Blackbird, an online journal of literature and the arts has selected it for its inaugural video essay feature slated for its spring edition.

Students who are planning to take the MCAT this year should begin planning for registering. 

The registration will open sometime on Nov. 2.  For more information on test dates, locations, and registration guidelines check their web site.

Seating can be limited at some testing centers and dates, so we highly recommend signing up early.  That way you are more likely to be able to go to a relatively nearby testing site on the day you choose.

Note that the MCAT is offered a number of times throughout the year at computer testing sites.  There are ten administrations between January and May of this year.

Submitted on behalf of Tom Torello, executive director of marketing communications.

This is North Korea, and very little has changed since then.

Come learn about the human rights crisis in North Korea and what we, as students, can do to make a difference.
