CSN Henderson Campus
Greetings to all! I hope your semester is going well. There is much activity on many fronts that I have covered in this newsletter, including financial aid, the e-Learning task force and of course, rumors and questions.
Please note that in the coming months, you may receive a call from Francine to come [...]
Congratulations to CSN’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter! I am proud to announce the nation’s largest community college honor society has designated CSN’s organization a Five Star Chapter, the highest level of distinction.
The designation recognizes the college’s chapter for its progress in meeting student engagement and community service goals. CSN will also receive a Five Star [...]
Prior to the town halls, CSN issued an open-ended survey question to college employees to solicit questions they would like addressed during the upcoming town hall. CSN President Michael Richards opened each town hall responding to the majority of these inquiries.
Salary & Benefits
Nearly half of survey respondents wanted information on salaries and benefits in the [...]
This is a belated March Chronicle, which primarily serves to lay a foundation for the college-wide town hall meetings that begin next week. I plan to share additional details as available from the state and Nevada System of Higher Education at those sessions. [...]

Early registration begins May 1 and the payment due date for students who register early for fall 2012 classes is June 1. Payment or payment arrangements (whether paying out of pocket or with financial aid) must be made by this deadline or students’ enrollment may be canceled. Registration re-opens for all students on June 4, after which time payment is due at 11:59 p.m. on the day of registration.
The use of this “rolling” enrollment cancellation process will help ensure CSN does not shutdown the entire registration system for all NSHE institutions as we did last fall.
The following steps will help students protect their enrollment from cancelation:
· Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form before May 30;
· Pay the balance due before 11:59 p.m. on June 1; or
· Sign up for a payment plan online via MyCSN and pay the minimum amount due by 11:59 p.m. on June 1, (or do so in person at a campus cashier’s office during regular business hours). [...]
I’m pleased to report on several actions at the meeting of the Board of Regents on March 1-2 held here at CSN.
First, the Regents voted to bestow the Nevada Regents’ Academic Advisor Award for Community Colleges to CSN Counselor Jana Wolf. She has been an invaluable resource and students constantly ask for her by name. [...]
At the beginning of each semester, I hold “roundtable” discussions for faculty and staff at each of our campuses. This year, I shared a number of items, and the group discussion added many more that I’d like to share with you.
What I Shared as Introductory Themes:
PEBP: We are unable to exit the current plan [...]
I want to follow-up on a news story that aired on Wednesday about the exposure of certain student data and provide you with complete and accurate information. Last week, a menu item link in our student information system, MyCSN, was inadvertently activated that allowed students to search and view other [...]
I would like to take a moment to call attention to a few CSN students who have received national attention in their fields this summer!
Congratulations to CSN Floral Design Students Monica Macaibay, Gayoung Park and Teryl Tollefsen-Soren for placing in the top 10 places at the summer Student American Institute of Floral Design Competition in [...]
