A semester’s worth of research, interviews, site visits and planning culminated this week as four teams of Black Hill State University tourism students presented their vision for the future of the City of Redfield.
The student teams, who are in Dr. Ignatius Cahyanto’s Tourism Planning and Development class, each created a five-year sustainable tourism plan for the city, located in the north east part of South Dakota.
The conference room in the Black Hills State University Life Sciences Laboratory was turned into Santa’s workshop last week as a handful of graduate students and professors filled 77 stockings of donated items from pencils and calculators to socks, hats and games which were delivered to the Red Shirt community this week.
The stuffed stockings, however, are just a part of the donations that were brought to the community as part of an ongoing tradition started by two BHSU students 12 years ago.
Black Hills State University has been ranked on two national blogs as one of the safest and most affordable universities.
For artistic director and choreographer Jodi Lomask, it is the mysteries of the world that inspire her work, and the creative minds of scientists and artists that collaborate to unravel those mysteries.
Lomask brought her unique perspective on art and science to the Black Hills State University campus earlier this week.
Gibson, BHSU assistant professor of digital media, currently has an art exhibit featuring 78 pieces, all inspired by the 78 cards in a tarot deck. The exhibit titled “Illuminations” runs until Dec. 8 at the Apex art gallery at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology.
Literature’s favorite quirky inquisitor takes on a new mystery – his own – in Black Hills State University’s holiday production Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol. The show runs from Thursday, Nov. 39 through Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Woodburn Theatre on the BHSU campus.
Lomask, who has trained at several prestigious dance schools including the Royal Ballet Academy, Merce Cunningham Studio, and London Contemporary Dance School, will speak in the Pangburn Theatre Monday, Dec. 3, at 7:30 p.m. She will also give a talk at the Dahl Arts Center in Rapid City Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. During her talk, Lomask will take a deeper look at the creative processes that scientists and artists share. She will also show video of her troupe’s performances.
With more than 25 years of education experience, Sandy Klarenbeek’s list of accomplishments is extensive. The Black Hills State University health professor can now add 2012 South Dakota Association Health,Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (SDAHPERD) College Teacher of the year to that list.
It’s the unique way humankind and nature collide that most inspires Black Hills State University professor of photography Steve Babbitt’s photos
“I rarely take photos of just landscapes. My most successful photos are ones where men and nature come together in an unusually ironic or humorous way,” said Babbitt. His photo “Out House” depicts that. The photograph is currently on display at the first juried exhibition at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls.
Amy Varland‘s resume is a colorful one. She’s been a tour guide at Walt Disney World, a travel agent, a television production assistant, a golf course manager; she’s a licensed bail bond agent and certified to officiate wedding ceremonies. In May, the Black Hills State University student found her true calling.
Varland, a Mass Communication major with a Spanish minor, took the advice of her college professor, Dr. Mary Caton-Rosser, and applied for a summer internship with South Dakota Public Broadcasting. Now, several months later, Varland is still with SDPB working part time from a little makeshift recording studio from the living room of her Lead home.
