Shook Fine Arts Building theater. The show will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday, Nov. 19-20; 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Nov. 21-22; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23.

The Global Student Network and the ESL 100 are sponsoring the SCC Shoe Drive to benefit Shoeman Water Projects, which recycles and sells old shoes to raise funds for water projects in countries such as Kenya, Haiti and Guatemala. Shoes can be deposited in any of the cardboard shoe bins located just inside the doors of most major buildings on campus. The shoe drive will run until Nov. 23.

The SALT program was introduced to SCC’s campus in Fall 2012 to start spreading financial literacy among the student population. This free online resource allows students to gain knowledge about paying for college, managing debt and planning a career. Students can enter an SCC book scholarship contest just by engaging in lessons on the website before Dec. 1.
