Digital Record Perimeter College Face Lift

Built Environment Perimeter Collage Face Lift Georgia State University, Perimeter Campus – Clarkston Georgia Perimeter College had a facelift.  This mid-sized two-year college has transformed to become a bonified four-year institution.  Georgia Perimeter College has merged with Georgia State University to become one of the largest universities in the country. Exhibit one show GPC one year ago flying “Panther” colors with pride and documented distinction. There have been some infamous personalities who passed through these doors.  The new look comes with some opportunities that benefit students throughout Atlanta and surrounding vicinity.  Students will not have to travel so far to take a course.  The existing credit transfer eligibility will change to 100% credit for electives. The tuition cost will reflect the University standard across the board.  Tuition cost was the most attractive attribute of GPC community college.  Students from Georgia State University have taken advantage of the tuition variance for years.

Built Environment “The Giant Impact.”

Built Environment “The Giant Impact.” Built Environment of Stone Mountain description talked about how Stone Mountain formed.  The Mountain is an intrusive igneous rock 300 million years old formed from a pluton chamber 16 km. Benith the earth’s crust (Whitney, 1976).  The research information lead to rock types, weathering rock features and deposit formations.  Further investigation focused on the earth’s mantle where the Stone Mountain pluton lived.   Theia the small planet that collided with the earth 4.3 billion years ago is presumed to have intruded into the earth crust and settled in the mantle of Earth.  Theia was thought to have the same composition as Earth, so there is no geophysical evidence of Theia’s mineral deposits.  The story of planet Theia unfolded into the formation of the moon “The Giant Impact” theory is the currently accepted scenario. The giant impact theory based on compositional isotopes, such as those of titanium. The formation of the moon from the giant impact is the accepted theory scientist support today.  The planet Theia impact Hypothesis is questionable based on several inconsistencies. Part of the research included video simulations of The Giant Impact theory.  The number of videos listed from a google query is large.  Many of the submissions are university faculty productions from the science class project.  The sources seem credible “off the cuff”, after careful evaluation the quality of video evident. One video “How The Moon Was Formed” YouTube, is a good representation of the impact hypothesis.  The video is an animated simulation with voice over music for effects and drama.  The narrator includes the pros and cons to the impact theory...

Georgia State University Perimeter Campus – Clarkston

Georgia State University Perimeter Campus – Clarkston The ceramics lab located in the F building on the west end of the campus. The F building is where the Fine Arts Classes held. The ceramics lab is where I observed students creating pottery. Thinking of Built Environment themes, the artifacts created were ideal for a rhetorical description. Dora and Bob Struther are the instructors for the ceramics lab. The classes are offered twice per year and only one pottery wheel class per year. It was a good time to visit the lab because the wheel class was in session today. The class had eight students learning the potter wheel operations. Shelves that lined the walls, for holding pottery in the process. There were ten individual stations for throwing pottery on the wheel. Dora Struther, Ceramics Instructor Students taking in the lesson plan Finishing the cylinder foot – Dora Struther Dora Struther instructs students and she demonstrate techniques for producing, cylinders, cups, pitchers, bowls and a host of other thrown pottery. Each student can work as a group and create an individual vessel to finish and take home. The first project assignment was to produce a cylinder six inches tall. The students were all fist time users, so the project went along slowly at first. The teacher said: the cylinder assignment is the hardest because “Centering” technique is the basis for all pottery and once mastered, pottery becomes easier to do. The GPC facelift has influenced the future of ceramics for resident students. Georgia State University is the parent organization of the Georgia Perimeter Colleges. The have been noticeable effects as...
