Little Fockers - Official Trailer [HD]

Friday April 1, 2011

Friday: 8:00 PM & 10:00 PM

Lane University Center 111



It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get "in" with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack's suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam's entire clan-including Pam's lovelorn ex, Kevin (Owen Wilson)-descends for the twins' birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he's fully capable as the man of the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack's final test and become the family's next patriarch...or will the circle of trust be broken for good?

UPC Feature Film: School Daze

Spike Lee's: School Daze

Friday April 8, 2011

8:00 PM  

Lane University Center 111


Spike Lee's follow-up to his unlikely hit She's Gotta Have It was this ambitious--some would say too ambitious--attempt at a musical about college life. But Lee, ever the provocateur, doesn't settle for a simple college comedy. Rather, he wants to make a point about the social divisions within all-black colleges: between the socializers and the socially conscious, and between light and dark-skinned blacks. Laurence Fishburne plays a politically aware student trying to bring his fellow students together; Giancarlo Esposito plays the fraternity boss who constantly seeks to insert a wedge between the haves and have-nots. Lee himself plays a pawn in the middle, a would-be frat boy undergoing a wicked Hell Week as a pledge. The story doesn't pull together and the musical numbers--more spoof than anything else--only serve to fragment it. While it offers interesting points, it never does so in a particularly cohesive way.

7:30 PM

Lane University Center 232 Atkinson Room 



Imagine a former IRS tax auditor telling you how to prepare your taxes. Imagine the head engineer at Lexus fixing your car whenever it breaks down. Imagine your college professor helping you write the essay questions for your final exam. That's what "Confessions of a Recruiting Director" is for students looking to land their first job -- the ultimate insider's guide to navigate the hiring maze. "Confessions of a Recruiting Director" is an "exposť" that dispels the myths and uncovers the truths behind getting that first job. From the moment you click "send" on your computer to submit your resume, what happens? How are just a few candidates chosen from a stack of hundreds of resumes? What exactly are Recruiting Directors looking to hear when they interview candidates? What are the common mistakes that students make time and time again?

Tenor jazz saxophonist Javon Jackson gained international recognition when he performed with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. But Jackson has quickly established himself himself as a leader in jazz music and has toured with the Javon Jackson Band throughout the world. Playing professionally in clubs since the age of 16, Jackson met and was mentored by jazz great Branford Marsalis. After graduating from Boston's prestigious Berklee School of Music and later getting his master's degree in music, Jackson became a sought-after entertainer. Over the years, his style of jazz has grown to reflect his influences form the funk, R&B and rock worlds. He often departs from his hard bop jazz and adds a mix of soul/funk to produce a sound that is daring and honest.

Frostburg State University is once again competing in the annual RecycleMania Tournament, and we need everyone's help to recycle the most and take the title!! RecycleMania is an 8-week competition between over 600 colleges across the country and around the world that started on February 6th and ends on April 2nd. FSU is competing to have the highest percentage of recycled materials, the largest number of pounds of recycling per person on campus, and the lowest number of pounds of garbage per person. Below are tips that will help every FSU student, faculty, and staff member ensure a Bobcat Victory in RecycleMania!!


START RECYCLING if you haven't already!! Recycling bins are located on every floor of every building on campus. Recycling stations have bins for plastic and glass bottles, cans, and mixed paper (office paper, newspaper, magazines). Instead of throwing your plastic bottle in a trash can, carry it the extra two or three feet to a recycling bin.


ONLY RECYCLE materials listed on the bins. Trash or items that do not match the label contaminate the recycling load and disqualify the bag from the competition. In order to be able to count all of our recycling it is CRITICAL that you follow the labels on the bins.


GET INFORMATION on how FSU is doing in the competition by visiting the Learning Green, Living Green Facebook page Recycling information is updated weekly as we submit our results to RecycleMania. You can find out more about RecycleMania at


TELL YOUR FRIENDS about the competition and encourage them to start recycling.
