All Day Ishaan Raga (Multi-Day Event)
A doctor by profession, Deepali Mahanta Kayal started painting at a young age after she won a national level painting competition.

Her engagement with various morbid conditions of her patients has not dampened her spirits, but rather inspired her to search for hidden beauty, pathos, and meaning in our day-to-day lives. Indian folklore, mythology, and philosophy have been recurring themes in her work. She firmly believes that art is the quest for self-expression and truth. Dr. Kayal currently lives in Madhya Pradesh, India.

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM Student Directed One-Act Plays
Yakima Valley College Playmasters presents an evening of one-act plays.  Directed by former YVC students Azalea Koestler and Brooke Waits, and starring current YVC students, the two plays -- Conversation at Night with a Despised Character and Crimes of a Middle Aged Genius -- will be held February 3-4, 2017 at 7:30pm in Kendall Hall’s Black Box Theatre, Room 127. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at the special internet price of $7.00 at: YVCStudentDirectedPlays.brownpapertickets.com. Tickets sold at the box office before the performance are $10.00, cash or check only.

Conversation at Night with a Despised Character is by French Author and Dramatist Friedrich Dürrenmat.  The production, directed by former YVC student, Azalea Koestler, features YVC students Cody Jordan and Christopher Mercy. A window pane breaks sharply on the darkened stage, and a man who has been sitting quietly in his living room at midnight says to an invisible intruder in a calm, firm voice, “Please come in.” For this man has long awaited the visitor, knowing he would come sooner or later but not knowing in what disguise he would appear. The intruder presents himself as the secret executioner for the ruler of their totalitarian state. But it is death itself that speaks. The macabre theme has overtones of such perceptiveness and even humor that it can stand as one of Durrenmatt’s most interesting achievements.

Crimes of a Middle Aged Genius is written and directed by former YVC Drama student, Brooke Waits, and features YVC students Frankie Cioci, Jessica Hunter, Cody Jordan, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Matthew Wells.  A genius scientist has tried to discover an “elixir of life” that would allow the drinker to become immortal. He tests his formula on his staff without their knowledge or consent, which drives them to insanity. New plays, new directors, and new ideas – that is what Black Box theatre is all about.

FAFSA: The FAFSA is required to apply for federal financial assistance for higher education. Each year, the U.S. Department of Education provides more than $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds to students in need. In addition, many states and colleges use the FAFSA data to determine eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use FAFSA information to determine whether students qualify for their aid.

WASFA: The Washington State Need Grant expanded eligibility to include to low-income, non-citizen students who meet the program’s eligibility requirements and satisfy the following residency criteria:

  • Have graduated from a Washington high school or obtained a GED (or will do so before beginning college)
  • Have lived in Washington for three years prior to, and continuously since, earning the high school diploma or equivalent
  • Sign an affidavit to file an application to become a permanent resident of the United States when eligible to apply

Whether you choose a four-year university, community college, vocational or technical school, this event can help you receive financial aid. Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to attend with their student. Students may attend alone; however, they will need to bring as many of the parent/guardian items as possible.

Student should bring:

  • Your Social Security number and/or card (if applicable)
  • Your DACA work authorization number and/or card (if applicable)
  • Your driver’s license or state identification card (if applicable)
  • If you were born after December 31, 1992 bring parent(s) and their 2015 income data (W-2’s or year-end pay stub and/or 2015 tax return) or, if taxes have not yet be filed, 2015 year-end earnings information and a copy of the 2015 tax return.
  • If you were born before January 1993, are married, have dependents you support or are active in or a veteran of the U.S. armed services, bring your 2015 year-end income information or your 2015 year-to-date income information and a copy of your 2013 tax form.
  • A valid email address for verification of pin

Parents/guardians should bring:

  • Your Social Security number and/or card and date of birth (if applicable)
  • Parent income tax return for 2015. If this is not available, students and families can estimate the information using 2015 year-to-day income information and a copy of the 2015 tax form and make corrections to the FAFSA at a later time
  • A valid email address for verification of pin

These documents may not be available to all students, but do not let it discourage you from coming. Volunteers will be able to help get your FAFSA or WASFA application started with whatever information you can provide and you’ll be able fill in the blanks once you have obtained all the needed information. All information and documents shared with volunteers will be kept private and confidential. Information will only be used to help students and families apply for financial aid.

She has honed her skills over a period of time at several places: New Delhi, Jaipur, Chennai, and Guwahati in India. She has explored a variety of forms and experimented with different techniques and styles. Her engagement with various morbid conditions of her patients has not dampened her spirits, but rather inspired her to search for hidden beauty, pathos, and meaning in our day-to-day lives. Indian folklore, mythology, and philosophy have been recurring themes in her work. She firmly believes that art is the quest for self-expression and truth.

11:30 AM - 2:00 PM V-Day

Yakima Valley College will celebrate the national V-Day movement with the campus V-Fest fair on Thursday, February 16, 2017 from 11:30-2:00pm in the Hopf Union Building, Building 9. Typically, 200 students take part in this popular event. V-Fest provides creative, interactive stations with various themes to help raise awareness about gender violence, the exploitation of women, and available support within our local community. Station topics include sexual harassment, human trafficking, domestic violence, counseling resources, self-defense, poetry, the Campus Clarity program, and will even offer students the opportunity to experience burqa headwear. Themed merchandise will be available for sale and free pizza and prizes will be provided.

Meanwhile, a production of Lee Blessing’s Independence will be held February 16-18, 2017 at 7:30pm in Kendall Hall, Building 12, Black Box Theatre. Tickets can be purchased online in advance for $5.00 at www.YVCIndependence.brownpapertickets.com or $10.00 at the door.

Independence is a comedy about a dysfunctional mother and her three grown daughters, and each daughter's journey toward independence. The play is set in the small town of Independence, Iowa, where these head-strong protagonists find there is no accommodation possible but, instead, only a kind of arbitrary independence for each.  They come to realize that each must find her own heaven—or hell—in her own way. More information: http://www.dramatists.com/cgi-bin/db/single.asp?key=1193#.

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation, and sex slavery. Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual events to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities. Information provided by: www.vday.org.

YVC has participated in V-Day for the past 14 years. This year YVC will donate proceeds to ASPEN Victim Advocacy Services at Comprehensive Healthcare and the YWCA of Yakima.

  • Have graduated from a Washington high school or obtained a GED (or will do so before beginning college)
  • Have lived in Washington for three years prior to, and continuously since, earning the high school diploma or equivalent
  • Sign an affidavit to file an application to become a permanent resident of the United States when eligible to apply

Whether you choose a four-year university, community college, vocational or technical school, this event can help you receive financial aid. Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to attend with their student. Students may attend alone; however, they will need to bring as many of the parent/guardian items as possible.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Biology Lecture: Wild Trees on a Regulated River: Black Cottonwoods in the Yakima Valley

Yakima Valley College, in collaboration with the Cowiche Canyon Conservancy, presents the Winter Biology Lecture Series. Please see the information below for a list of upcoming events. Admission is free and open to the community.

Wild Trees on a Regulated River: Black Cottonwoods in the Yakima Valley

Presenter: Tom Elliott, Ecologist

February 21, 2017 • 7:00pm • Glenn Anthon Hall Room 215

Tom Elliott is a riparian ecologist working for the Yakama Nation on floodplain management and restoration. Originally from Virginia, he fell in love with hardwood forests and swamps just beyond his backyard. Moving west, he spent time in the San Francisco Bay area, immersing himself in the rich native flora and abundant weeds of the evergreen coastal hills while he worked in native plant restoration for a National Park. In 2005 he moved to Yakima and was shocked and awed by the shrub-steppe desert and the beautiful streams and rivers that run through it. He went on to earn a master's degree in biology from Central Washington University, where he studied the riparian cottonwood forest and trying to understand the interplay between natural and human driven processes along the Yakima River.

Black cottonwoods are intricately adapted to grow and persist on river floodplains in the Western U.S. However, river regulation and floodplain development have altered the natural flow regime on many rivers, reducing reproductive success and potentially threatening the future of these riparian trees and their floodplain forests. This talk will present information on the life history, reproduction, and habitat functions of black cottonwoods on the Yakima River. It will draw on local research regarding the sexual reproduction and population balance between male and female cottonwoods, and will attempt to assess the effect of human caused changes in river flow on the cottonwood population. The talk will conclude by summarizing climate change research on the hydrology of the Yakima River and its potential effect on the cottonwood forest, and thoughts on possible adaptations to these challenges.

Understanding Spider Behavior: They Aren’t All Here to Kill You
Faculty Lecture with Dr. Meghan R. Fitzgerald, YVC Biology Instructor

Most people can name a few benefits that spiders have bestowed upon humankind: many recognize that most of our food supply would be gone if spider-soldiers weren’t eating up pest species, or some people appreciate the decrease in mosquito populations. However, did you know that the Golden Orb Weavers build webs together that can be twenty feet across and that they sometimes eat their sisters? Did you know that the dancing of the Peacock jumping spider attracts ladies from all over their habitat, and that they can hear you from across the room? Or perhaps the Ogre-faced spiders will appeal to you as they catch food by throwing small lassos over its insect prey.  Spiders exhibit a wide variety of unusual and interesting behaviors, some of which directly impact human lives. In this talk, Fitzgerald will give you some insight into spider relationships both world-wide and in your own backyard.

Meghan R. Fitzgerald has a Ph.D in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she studied Arachnid Behavioral Ecology. She also has a B.S. degree in biology from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. She has been teaching in YVC’s biology department since 2015.

She has explored a variety of forms and experimented with different techniques and styles. Her engagement with various morbid conditions of her patients has not dampened her spirits, but rather inspired her to search for hidden beauty, pathos, and meaning in our day-to-day lives. Indian folklore, mythology, and philosophy have been recurring themes in her work. She firmly believes that art is the quest for self-expression and truth. Dr. Kayal currently lives in Madhya Pradesh, India.
