CSS sessions set

In preparation for the BG@100 PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (CSS) implementation, sessions introducing CSS to the campus community have been scheduled, beginning this week.

CSS will be implemented in phases between next month and August 2009, replacing the University’s legacy SIS system as the system of record for student information. The advisory sessions will provide an overview of the featured topic and will complement the online training courses in which all users will participate prior to receiving CSS security access.

Pre-registration is not required for the sessions, all of which will be held in 1007 Business Administration Building unless otherwise noted. They include:

• Introducing CSS, 1:30-2:30 p.m. Wednesday (July 23) and 9-10 a.m. Thursday (July 24)
• Understanding Academic Structure, 1:30-2:30 p.m. July 30 and 9-10 a.m. July 31
• Campus Solutions: Learning the Basics, 1:30-2:30 p.m. Aug. 6 and 9-10 a.m. Aug. 7
• Course/Class, 1:30-3 p.m. Aug. 13 and 9-10:30 a.m. Aug. 14
• Understanding Campus Community, 1:30-2:30 p.m. Sept. 3 in 115 Education Building and 9-10 a.m. Sept. 4
• Understanding Admissions, 1:30-2:30 p.m. Sept. 10 in 115 Education Building and 9-10 a.m. Sept. 11

Information about the advisory sessions will also be available online at: www.bgsu.edu/offices/cio/page52101.html.

In addition to the sessions, users may attend venues such as the BG@100 open forums where these topics will also be covered. For forum dates, times and topics, go to: www.bgsu.edu/offices/cio/page5614.html.

‘Rumors,’ ‘Millie’ to close Huron Playhouse’s 60th season

The Huron Playhouse will bring down the curtain on its 60th season this week and next with the fast-paced farce “Rumors,” Tuesday-Saturday (July 22-26), and the Tony Award-winning musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” July 29-Aug. 2.

“Rumors” is part of the anniversary season in tribute to Ron Leibman, who starred in the original Broadway production of the comedy, and his fellow Huron Playhouse alumni. The Neil Simon play begins with four couples at the townhouse of a deputy New York City mayor and his wife to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. But the party never begins because the host has shot himself (a flesh wound) and his wife is missing. His lawyer’s cover-up gets more difficult to sustain as other guests arrive, and nobody can remember who has been told what about whom.

Set in the Jazz Age of the 1920s, “Thoroughly Modern Millie” is based on the popular movie of the same name and tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to New York in search of a new life for herself. Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan wrote the Broadway hit, whose characters include tap-dancing flappers and a dragon-lady villainess.

Curtain time for both plays is 8 p.m. nightly. Tickets are $12 for students and senior citizens, $14 for other adults and $9 for children under 12. For reservations and more information, call the playhouse at 419-433-4744. The box office at McCormick School, 325 Ohio St., is open Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
