Tutoring at Clark
FYI-Tutoring will start back up the week of January 11th!
Psst! Do you have a grade of 75 or below? Don’t worry; be happy because you are required to attend tutoring at Clark to get some extra help to bring that grade up! But where do I go? So glad you asked! Come to Clark University! We will be having tutoring help along with Upward Bound. Tutoring will be held in the Jonas Clark building. On Wednesdays tutoring is located in the following rooms, JC 105 (Computer Lab), JC 206 and JC 218. On Thursdays it is located in rooms JC 102 and Sackler 120. Remember that this is open to ALL of you if you need help with your homework but required of you if you are below a 75 in any class.

Answer for last year’s riddle

This month at Dynamy we really want to think about support and what it means to be a community that supports each other. Check out the story below and reflect on what it means to you.
That’s Not My Job
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have.
