Phi Theta Kappa Monday Funday, 2010-12-06

This was a fun event organized by Nikki Sfraga, current president of Phi Theta Kappa, at Daytona State College on Monday, December 6, 2010. From 11 A.M. to 2 P.M. we had free food, music, dancing, and games in and around the clock tower at the Daytona Beach campus.

The free food included hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, nachos with cheese, hot chocolate, and bottled water. There was an inflatable basketball hoop and a dance contest. I enjoyed this a lot and hope we do this next year!

Below are 244 photos I took at the event. I installed a new gallery plugin which makes posting photos easier, so this is a different format from most of my posts and because of the large number of photos, I am not making the ten-megapixel high-resolution versions available to download.

You can just browse through the thumbnails and click one to enlarge, or click “View with PicLens” below for an interactive display that you can enlarge to full-screen or browse through with your keyboard’s arrow keys. Please make sure you have JavaScript and Adobe Flash enabled.

Enjoy the photos. 🙂

The Welcome Party

Hi everyone! I’ve been busy on my personal development blog, the Tweet This plugin for WordPress I made, and my Daytona State College classes. But I want to share these photos from the DSC welcome party last week (August 27).

People at the party, enjoying the cool Florida weather. 😎

Dr. Michael Flota (left) and Steve Pruitt (right), of Phi Theta Kappa. Pruitt is the student president of the Daytona State’s Mu Rho chapter, and Flota is on the board of directors. Dr. Flota teaches sociology (fall) and economics (spring) at QUANTA.

Professor Frank Gunshanan says hello. He teaches English in QUANTA, and does a bang-up job of it.

Random people!

I forget this fellow’s name. He’s preparing the Phi Theta Kappa dunk tank.

The army recruiters are active on campus. I told them I couldn’t join because of my overwhelming cowardice. 😀

A near hit! The dunk tank was a fund-raising event: each person donated $1 while throwing three balls at the button.


2008-08 Welcome

Who is this person? If only I knew.


2008-08 Welcome

Dr. Casey Blanton, Chair of Learning Communities and Humanities professor at QUANTA, and another gentleman whose name I can’t remember Bruce Cook, Assistant Dean of Student Activities department and co-adviser of the school newspaper, DSC In Motion (thanks Jennifer! 2008-11-17).

At last, Dr. Flota gets dunked! Dr. Blanton (above) is also one of the advisors for the Mu Rho chapter.

Miss Cariann and friends, getting the word out for the American Medical Student Association. She was in QUANTA 24 (last year).

It was a fun event, lots of people shuffling about, great food and music. I got a couple hot dogs and some sodas. [2008-11-17: I’m a vegetarian since October 1, so no more of this.] The only problem was the terrible heat! Too bad they couldn’t have done it indoors. The spring event (January) ought to be cooler.
