  • Have you wanted to start running, but weren't sure how to begin? The Couch-to-5K program can get you started running! By the end of 10 weeks you could be ready to run 5K (3.1 miles) in about 30 minutes. The program started Monday, Sept. 28. However, it's not too late to join. Just meet at Tech Gym at 5:30 p.m. Monday and Wednesday evenings. The program moves you from walking briskly to walking and jogging in intervals, until you're running continously. Each session lasts about 30 minutes. You'll also need to do a third session on your own or with a buddy on the weekends. That's it -- just 30 minutes three times a week for eight weeks. Questions?

  • What can you do with your empty printer and copier ink cartridges, and the cell phones you're no longer using? Put them in a collection box for the Rotary Club of Socorro. This project is partly community service, to keep the cartridges and phones out of the landfill, and partly an effort to raise funds for Rotary's local, national, and international projects. You will find collection boxes on campus in the Fidel Center, Human Resources, NRAO, MRO, and the Bureau of Geology. You will also see them at various locations around Socorro. Rotary thanks you for your help!
