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.
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.
Who is this person? If only I knew.
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).
People other than me taking pictures! I always take pictures of people taking pictures.
More of Flota!
At last, Dr. Flota gets dunked! Dr. Blanton (above) is also one of the advisors for the Mu Rho chapter.
Our host, who blasted us with entertaining music.
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.
