SFA student service hits new heights

It's one thing to mow your lawn or repair your deck, but it's quite another to collect brush and re-build a porch for complete strangers.

Stephen F. Austin State University students have done those tasks and more, putting smiles on faces and accomplishing something that would have taken more time and resources had it been left to others, SFA Assistant Director of Student Life Jamie Bouldin said.

At of the end of March, nearly 123,000 hours of volunteer work had been achieved through students and faculty, smashing the university's goal of giving 100,000 volunteer hours back to the community. More

Book signing for Nacogdoches Now and Then
Friday, May 14, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Hotel Fredonia lobby


The book is a result of a Summer 2008 project undertaken by SFA Assistant Professor Chris Talbot and his photography students to recapture historic locations throughout Nacogdoches. Using a group of old photographs found at the East Texas Research Center as a guide, the artists attempted to pinpoint the exact positions where the pictures were originally taken and re-photograph the area to show the development of Nacogdoches over the past 100 years.

According to co-author Dr. David A. Lewis, SFA professor of art history, the book functions as a pictorial guide, presenting paired “Now” and “Then” photographs of 20 specific Nacogdoches sites, along with maps that mark each location with coordinates of the vantage point and directions for viewing.

Talbot and Lewis will be available to autograph books. Hard cover books are priced at $29.95, and soft cover books are $19.95. Nacogdoches Now and Then is a product of the Stephen F. Austin State University Press.
