On October 8th, 2013, at the Open Forum: Meet the Deans, a small group of students had the opportunity to get to know five of Folsom Lake College’s deans. The deans that were present included: Gary Hartley, Dean of Instruction and Technology; Dr. Monica Pactol, Dean of Instruction; Dale van Dam, Dean of Instruction for the El Dorado Center; Dr. Bruce Werner, Interim Dean of Career and Technical Education; and Dr. David Williams, Dean of Planning and Research and Visual and Performing Arts. After the deans introduced themselves, attendees were able to play a game of human bingo, which was great fun. Folsom Lake College’s senate president, Jonathan Rogers, then commenced a questions and answers session with the deans, which allowed students to get to know the deans on a more personal level. The questions that were asked were often about the deans’ personal lives, such as who inspired them the most and why they chose the colleges they went to. Finally, the question and answers portion was ended with casual questions about the deans’ childhoods, such as what their favorite cereals were when they were children.
The next Open Forum will be Tuesday, November 5th, from 12:00-1:00pm in the Peregrine Room. Be sure to attend to voice your opinions and stay updated on campus events.
