Happy March: Things to do this month

Well, that had to have been the strangest February on record in northeast Indiana, weather-wise. We hit a month low of 1 degree back on Feb. 6 and a high of 70 on Feb. 20. That’s a 69-degree shift over the course of about two weeks. That’s normal, right?

As we usher in March, which brings you the week of spring break followed by the last official day of winter, tug out your calendars and make some plans with Ivy Tech.

Automotive Student/Employer Networking Night

5 p.m. March 6 in the automotive lab in the the Steel Dynamics, Inc. Keith E. Busse Technology Center
Attention automotive technology students! Stop by to meet auto employers who are looking to hire. Bring your resume and dress to impress.

Munch & Movie

Noon to 2 p.m. March 7 in the Student Life Center commons
In honor of Women’s History Month, Student Life will screen Iron Jawed Angels. The movie, starring Hilary Swank and Anjelica Huston, looks at women’s suffrage during the 1910s and follows suffrage leaders Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, who use peaceful and effective strategies and dialogue to revolutionize the American feminist movement to grant women the right to vote.

Spring Break!

March 11 to 18, Fort Wayne to Cancun
Enjoy your week off! And if you’re doing anything fun or productive, or are just really excited to have a week off school, email those plans to jgarver2@ivytech.edu by March 6. I’ll compile what comes in for a future Green Light post. Include your full name, major, Spring Break plans, and a selfie or other photo of yourself.
