On Thursday, May 28, Davidson College will conduct a full-scale campus emergency exercise in conjunction with Davidson Police, Davidson Fire Department, Cornelius Fire Department, Mount Mourne Fire Department and Mooresville Fire Department.
The event will occur on the main campus area, and the college asks that the general public avoid the area as much as possible from 9 a.m. until noon. The event will include the presence of emergency vehicles, equipment and personnel.
The exercise is part of regular emergency preparedness activities the college performs every year.

This seminar explores various ways that words and images combine to make meanings. You will study a range of word-image texts, from illuminated books and graphic narratives, to digital poetry and blogs. You will write critical papers about these image-texts, and you'll create your own. The seminar is a double hybrid--word/image texts and critical/creative writing--designed to stimulate your intellectual and imaginative faculties, and to help you develop literacies for the digital age, including mastery of WordPress. No previous technological training required.
