Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Early estimates have determined that around 35% of faculty and staff and 35% of students at Baton Rouge Community College have lost everything due to recent flooding. The vast majority did not have flood insurance. When our campus was impacted by the 2011 tornado, others reached out to help us in our time of need. We have the opportunity now to help our sister institution in Louisiana as they face a time of devastation. While the needs are constantly evolving, BRCC has provided us with a specific list of their most urgent needs as of today. Their Foundation has set up a distribution center on their campus to aid impacted students, staff, and faculty. We have divided these needs up by division here at WSCC, with a goal of filling our semi-truck to deliver these items. The breakdown is below. Please keep in mind that they are not requesting clothing (except as listed below), electronics or bottled water at this time.
The deadline to donate is Wednesday, September 7. We will need the assistance of all available campus clubs, organizations, teams, and students needing volunteer hours to sort, organize, and pack these items as quickly as possible after the deadline for donations so that the truck can deliver the items. Packing will take place on Thursday and Friday, September 8-9.
We will be collecting items in the Upholstery/Interior Refinishing Building (between Business and HVAC) daily from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, in the evenings (Mon-Thurs) from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Susan Peek is coordinating day drop-off efforts and Wayne Manord is coordinating night and Sat drop-offs. Susan may be contacted at 256-735-9137 for drop-offs at times other than the ones listed and can be contacted for any questions that arise.

Wallace State Theatre announces AUDITIONS for Singin' in the Rain. Auditions will be held on Tuesday, August 30 at 2:30 pm in the Burrow Center choir and choreography rooms. Please prepare 32 bars of a song in the style of the show that shows range. You are welcome to sing from the show. An accompanist will be provided. Be prepared for a dance audition, including tap. You might be asked to read from the script. For more information, please contact Lauren Salerno at lauren.salerno@wallacestat e.edu. Auditions are open to ALL Wallace State students.
To keep Blackboard running efficiently, we will have a standard maintenance window between 1:30 AM and 3:00 AM Central time, Monday and Friday mornings. Blackboard may be unavailable for part or all of this time during updates and restarts.
Wallace State now offers a deferred tuition payment plan which allows students to pay 50% of their total charges (financial aid funds will be applied first, if available), plus a $40.00 processing fee by the payment deadline, and pay the remaining balance by the mid-point of the semester. This is an effort to assist students who are unable to pay 100% of their charges at one time. Students wishing to take advantage of this option must sign a Payment Deferment Agreement form with the Business Office first, and then pay the total amount of 50% of the total charges plus the $40.00 processing fee before the end of registration (the Business Office will assist you in calculating the amount due).
