Several students from the the A&M-Kingsville Wildlife Society have been spending their weekends helping with cleanup efforts in Refugio. The damage left behind after Hurricane Harvey is still abundant, and roughly 25-50 members have been heading out on Saturday's and Sunday's since early September.

Got the W! Congratulations to our Hogs on their 37-9 victory over West Texas A&M on Saturday, October 7.

Check out the brand new images on our recycling bins! Don't forget to utilize these bins throughout campus. We can all take steps everyday to make our planet a little bit better.

October is Campus Sustainability Month! This is how we're celebrating:

The first is The Typists, written by Corey Ranson, associate professor of theatre and director of theatre activities at the university. The Typists will be performed at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Oct. 12-13.

The Typists finds the actors in the mists of World War II and the battles are raging in the European and Pacific campaigns. These women have a job and that is to inform the country about the status of their sons. Sofi, who is new to the process, learns not all of our country can read English. Her journey to remedy that is one that is met with surprise and opposition that the perils and news of war does not soften.

The second offering for October will be The Nether, written by Jennifer Haley and directed by Ranson. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 19-21, with a 2:30 p.m. matinee Sunday, Oct. 22.

The Nether is a virtual wonderland that provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every desire. When a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers an interrogation into the darkest corners of the imagination.

Both The Typists and The Nether will be performed at the Kennedy Center American College State Festival at Angelo State University, Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 26-29.

Admission is free to Texas A&M-Kingsville student who show a valid identification card. For more information, call 361-593-3401.
