Stark Galleries, Memorial Student Center, Texas A&M University
A full scale presentation of the Texas Aggies Go to War exhibit which debuted in Bastogne, Belgium in 2014 will be on display on the Texas A&M campus in the J Wayne Stark Galleries in the Memorial Student Center. The exhibit will tell the story of five former students of Texas A&M University who each had a role in the pivotal Battle of the Bulge which led to the Allied victory in Europe. These five—James Hollingsworth ‘40, Turney Leonard ‘42, Willie Peña ‘42, Joe Routt ’37 and Earl Rudder ’32 —are representative not only of all Aggies, but all Americans, who served in World War II. Through them a story is told of dedication, sacrifice, reconciliation, healing, and deep ties, both personal and economic, between people an ocean apart. The full exhibit will be part of the Military Heritage Center, which will be built in College Station's Veterans Park.

Overview: If you're like most career professionals, chances are you feel time-pressed right now. If so,you might be comforted in knowing that you're not alone: nearly everyone in our society is experiencing time pressure. The pace of change in society has increased, and human response to change hasn't caught up yet. A crucial step in controlling your time is to condition your environments-your office, home, car and other physical spaces of your life. To manage your time effectively now and in the future, learn to manage the beforehand (as opposed to the aftermath). Managing the beforehand involves creating space-mentally or physicall-in advance of what comes next. It is clearing out the old and unsupportive, and making room for where you are heading. It requires anticipation, forethought, and vision. It is an approach for integrating your priorities and goals with your personal "systems," including how you keep your desk, office, closets, car and other spaces. Each time you have attempted to get organized, did you quit after a couple of hours, believing it was hopeless? To manage the beforehand requires getting organized. For many, it is a welcome relief to learn how much time it will take only one full weekend and several week nights. Why do some people seem to stay in control of their time and on top of things almost effortlessly? The answer lies in their ability to organize.
Some people approach personal organization with fear and trepidation, and allow endless interruptions to take them off course. They become anxious about doing nothing but getting organized. Yet, getting organized is an essential element to more time in your life. You are probably retaining too much; you have saved too many things and over-filed. Much of what you have collected does not serve you or support your priorities and goals.
Why should you Attend: Does time seems to be passing more quickly these days? Well, as it turns out, many others are experiencing the same time-pressure as you, and certainly you cannot be at you best when you're tired, hungry, and haven't exercise lately.
