Spring formal tickets are now on sale at the front desk in Patterson. The fee is a refundable deposit of $10, but if you want to bring a guest the cost of their ticket is $20. Spring formal is Saturday, May 10, but we only have a limited number of tickets so make sure you pick yours up today.
You wouldn’t think getting outside for 30 minutes a day would be so difficult, especially living with wilderness just a step outside the front door, but the challenge is real for college student’s with busy schedules. For every hour I sit in the library, instead of satisfying my instinctual drive to be outside, my nerves madden and my young butt aches in discomfort, literally. Time to make the time, get off the struggle bus, and get outside.

If you are like me and many other people in the world, you have, at some time, gloomily felt something lacking in your life; you’re at a loss of understanding why you experience emptiness. You write gratitude lists, expecting a gentle and inspiring talking-to, but instead you end up ignored by the apex of your own vulnerability.
The hardest thing for me to admit is that I have a fear of being vulnerable. Sometimes I forget that the absence of self-compassion constitutes anxiety, fear, anger, worry and guilt.
A recent scroll through the multitude of TED Talks refined my fear of being vulnerable and expanded my youthful perception. It occurred to me that I needed to add a bit of color to my partly filled canvas. For the past decade, acclaimed speaker and renowned author, Brené Brown has studied human connections with an emphasis on vulnerability and courage.
The Tutoring Center at Sierra Nevada College aids anybody in the Incline Village Community who seeks help with learning a certain subject.

It takes a lot of will power for me to bite my tongue when I see someone in Tahoe buying a single use plastic water bottle. Sometimes I can keep my opinion to myself, but as those of you who know me will understand, it’s really hard for me to do so.
It stills amazes me that I see people buying plastic water bottles around here. I understand – kind of – if you are out and about and you somehow forgot to bring your reusable water bottle, and you just had to buy that single use plastic water bottle. I get that. But why keep on buying single use plastic water bottles time and time again?
“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.” Henry Thoreau said that.
But where do we find the truth nowadays?
The LNT (Leave No Trace) Campaign at Sierra Nevada College is here! Random acts of sustainability are being watched! Staff, faculty, resident assistants and student government members will be taking notice of students who are achieving the goal of bringing the LNT principles to an urban setting.
When we do lose someone in our lives we reach out to those around us for support and that’s exactly what the Sierra Nevada College community did at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11, four days after Freshman Vincent Magnano, Vinny as he liked to be called, suddenly passed away.
The Devil Makes Three has been playing rowdy American music to eager crowds for over a decade. The three piece string band tours hard and fast, with their most recent campaign passing through South Lake Tahoe on Feb. 8. After hundreds of high energy, sold out concerts and exponentially increasing popularity, one might worry the DM3 is getting close to jumping the shark. Did Devil Makes Three jump the shark? No way.
The drones. Like clockwork, every minute on the minute, the glance, not at the horizon or the sky or even the pavement moving underneath hundred dollar sneakers, but at the phone. The constant buzz under the left or right butt cheek. The dadadaling echoes in classrooms. Is the ability to garner information at the speed of light a blessing or a curse?
