  • Local Haunting Inspires Hollywood Movie

    A  Kirksville story is the basis for a Hollywood movie, “The Possession,” which opened nationwide Aug. 31.

    “The Dibbuk Box,” published by Truman State University Press, documents local resident Jason Haxton’s experiences with an old wine cabinet believed to be haunted. Haxton purchased the cabinet on eBay after he heard about it from a Truman student.

    The eBay auction caught the attention of a wide audience, including a Los Angeles Times reporter who wrote an article about the various owners of the box, which was noticed by movie producer Sam Raimi. In 2004, Raimi’s lawyer approached Haxton for rights to make a movie about the item that had become known as the dibbuk box.

    While finally agreeing to movie rights, Haxton kept rights to publish a book about his own experiences with the box, which he was recording in journal entries.

    “The Dibbuk Box” was published by Truman State University Press last November to coincide with the original Halloween release date for the movie. The movie was delayed, but the book has been rising in popularity as the release of the movie nears.

    Haxton has done numerous radio and magazine interview requests and was the subject of an episode of SyFy Channel’s popular docudrama series, “Paranormal Witness” on Aug. 29. He will also appear this fall on The History Channel’s “Fear Files.”

    The book is available in print or digital editions at local bookstores and online at tsup.truman.edu.

  • Truman Recognized by Washington Monthly

    In the Washington Monthly September/October 2012 magazine, Truman State University is recognized as the No. 6 master’s university in the nation. Truman is the only Missouri school listed in the top 50, and the only public Missouri school on the entire Top 100 Master’s Universities list.

    Washington Monthly bases its rankings on three criteria: social mobility, which gives colleges credit for enrolling low-income students and helping them earn degrees; research production, with particular emphasis on schools where undergraduates eventually earn Ph.D.s; and commitment to service. More information about the rankings can be found at washingtonmonthly.com/college_guide/rankings_2012/masters_universities_rank.php.

    In addition to the Washington Monthly, Truman recently was recognized by the Princeton Review and the Fiske Guide to Colleges. The Princeton Review’s publication “The Best 377 Colleges, 2013 Edition,” is based on student-conducted surveys. The “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2013” evaluates public and private colleges by cost and academics. Truman was on their list of 41 schools, 20 public and 21 private, as a best buy. Truman is the only Missouri school included on the Best Buy list.

    Petigna recently arrived back in the U.S. after a semester-long study abroad in New Zealand where she expanded her knowledge of Kiwi culture and explored the captivating New Zealand landscape. She is thrilled to be back at Truman to study, and is ready to continue her involvement around campus. Petigna is a member of Lambda Pi Eta National Communication Honors Society, Alpha Sigma Alpha social sorority and serves as a Zumba instructor at the Student Recreation Center.

  • Honor Society on Awards Streak

    Truman’s chapter of the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, Sigma Delta Pi, has been named an “Honor Chapter” for its outstanding activities in 2011-12. This is the 19th consecutive year the chapter has received this award.

    Chapter advisor Lucy Lee, professor of Spanish, was instrumental in earning this honor that was awarded to only 14 chapters nationwide in 2012.

    Each May, all 585 chapters of Sigma Delta Pi across the U.S. are asked to submit an annual report detailing their numerous activities and projects from the academic year. Based on these reports, the National Executive Committee chooses approximately 10-15 “Honor Chapters” annually. This recognition is based upon the caliber of chapter projects that reflect the Sigma Delta Pi mission of honoring excellence in the study of the Spanish language, contributing to cultural understanding and upholding the goals of the society.

    With its national office at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, Sigma Delta Pi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies, the nation’s only certifying agency for college and university honor societies.

    All of this leads up to the football home opener when the Bulldogs will take on Lincoln (Mo.) at 7 p.m. As part of the pre-game activities, the U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team will jump into Stokes Stadium for the National Anthem. The Golden Knights will be performing at the Kirksville Air Fest Sept. 9.

  • ITS Offers Online Faculty Resources

    In response to faculty members continually looking for ways to keep abreast of advances in technology, IT Services and the Office of the Provost have joined together to purchase a subscription to a substantial collection of intensive online professional development opportunities that can be accessed from any computer.

    Magna Online provides an extensive cache of videos and publications that may be of interest to faculty members. These are productions based on conferences many may have wished to attend, but did not have the resources to do so.

    One such selection is “How to Balance Online Learner Needs and Instructor Workload” by Samantha Streamer-Veneruso and Tammy Stuart Perry. They discuss the concerns instructors have when creating an online class: have they created more work than they can handle? The pair shows the solution lies in creating a learner-centered community that encourages students to assume more of the learning responsibility while reducing the instructor’s workload. To view the video, or read the accompanying materials, log in to Magnapubs.com and type in “Stuart Perry” in the TOPICS search section.

    Another video, this one from Educause, is “Best Practices for Designing Successful Blended” by Veronica Diaz. This video demonstrates how to make the best of face-to-face and online instruction by designing a blended course from scratch or re-designing a traditional class. To provide feedback after viewing these videos, or for assistance in setting up an account, contact the Learning Technologies Team at 660.785.7750 or stop by PML 205.
