    Residue: Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall exhibit at the Cohen Gallery

    Nov 3- Dec 8, Opening Reception 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3

    The Cohen Gallery presents the work of Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall in “Residue,” opening 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3.

    As humans we leave a trail behind us- a record of our personal histories. Some of these marks are egregious like the oil spills in the oceans, others are poetic like the subtly scuffed paint surrounding a well-used door knob. The artists in this exhibition are using residue as a tool for making their art. By making objects to create stains, mimic stains, or employ stains for creative reflection, these four artists reflect how residue can create a metaphor for life’s experience.

    Did you know that you can update your direct deposit information at any time with Human Resources? If you do not currently have Direct Deposit you can elect it at any time!

    When you elect direct deposit that allows payroll to directly put your net paycheck in your account. This money is available on Friday morning of a payday, which is a lot more convenient than having to cash a check and wait for your money.

    Important Notice:
    Please allow up to two pay periods for your request to take effect. You will receive a wage statement via your Alfred University email account each pay period; please review this statement carefully each pay period. If you discover an error in your deposit, please notify Payroll immediately.

    Changing Institutions or Accounts:
    You need to complete a new form. Please remember to allow two pay periods for the change to be effective. During this time, you will be paid by CHECK.

    Closing Your Account:
    Failure to notify Payroll promptly that you have closed your account means that your bank will probably reject the deposit - and your pay will be delayed.

    Canceling Direct Deposit:
    Please complete the cancellation section of a new form. Payroll must receive your instructions at least two weeks before your next payday.

    It's Movember and the Wellness Center is focusing on men's mental health.

    For all the men out there, we encourage you to grow a moustache to generate conversation around the often stigmatized subject of men's mental health.

    For those who do grow a moustache this Movember, you have the chance to be rewarded by entering the Moustache Competition to be held at 4:30 p.m., Thursday, November 30 in the Kenyon/Allen Room. Prizes will be awarded to the "best moustache," "the most creative moustache" and "the fullest moustache". Light refreshments will be served (the kind that won't get stuck in your moustache)!

    Can't grow a moustache? There are other ways to support this awareness campaign like taking the "Move for Movember Challenge" or by showing your support by wearing a Movember pin or bracelet (available at the Wellness Center).
