|New Look of Communication Services in Admin. 218|
|(Above and Below) Old Look of Communication Services|
Beginning just before winter break, the Office of Communications temporarily moved from Room 218 in the Administration Building across the hall to the Board of Regents Room and break room while changes were made to their office. Cubicles were dismantled so that carpet could be replaced and the office reconfigured in a more open and inviting layout.
|During the Transformation After Carpet Had Been Removed|
|Stop By for a Tour|
On Jan. 5, the new office layout became a reality with an open floor plan and client meeting area.
Please stop by and take a tour.
New Publication and Web Request Form Created

Etiquette Training for Students Continues This Semester
by Jennifer Neilson
The spring semester will continue with class and style as Student Affairs will broadcast helpful tips for students to improve their etiquette, according to Dr. Judith Haislett, vice president for Student Affairs. The tips will be distributed around campus leading up to the Etiquette Dinner which on Feb. 23 in the CUB Ballroom at 6 p.m.
The dinner will consist of a presentation by consultant Jackie Ingle from Professional Edge with Dr. Chris Taylor, dean of the College of Business, as the emcee. The focus will be on appropriate dress, presentation and interviewing.
Sodexo is donating the dinner as a gift to ENMU students.
This evening will be a required training for RA staff as well as for some in various departments.
There will be four tips of the week between now and Feb. 23:
Eliminate the phrase “You Guys.” Try a week without it, just say you!
There is no privacy. If you post it, the world knows it!
Eliminate “um.” Try counting your “ums;” instead of saying “um,” be quiet before you continue speaking.
You are your song. Ringtones and messages say a lot about you. As a start, avoid: Rap ringtones, songs with personal messages and profanity.

Graduate Heading to West Africa
by Dawn Wolf-Taylor
ENMU alumni Andrea Elizondo, who graduated in December of 2011, is headed to Ghana, West Africa on Feb. 8 to work with the City of Refuge Ministries. The ENMU Foundation picked up the tab and ENMU Alumni Affairs arranged for the design and printing of t-shirts with the image shown here for the children who benefit from the program and with whom Andrea will be working.
About the project, Andrea said, “I will be going to the city of Tema which is about 16 miles from Accra. The organization I will be helping with, City of Refuge Ministries, is a home for trafficked and abandoned children and is Christian based.” She will be working with this group through April 2012.
Andrea also played soccer for Eastern, and the ENMU soccer team is sending soccer balls with her to take to the kids. There are 121 students currently in Africa who call City of Refuge home. To learn more about City of Refuge, go to http://www.cityofrefugeoutreach.com/ or see their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/cityofrefugechildrenshome?sk=wall.
Watch for pictures of Andrea with the children wearing our ENMU t-shirts in a future issue of Monday Memo and on the ENMU Alumni Association Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ENMUAlumni.
