Photo by Laura Benton FRC student lounge gets new look Laura Benton Staff Writer "There's nothing to do in Quincy," is an oft-heard complaint by teens and adults alike. An energetic group of students at Feather River College is trying to change that. "I want more fun activities on campus," said the new president of the revived associated student group, Franklin Mullen. ":L want to see more student spirit out of a small community college -- we don't have enough activities going on." Thanks to Mullen and a handful of fellow students, there is now a spruced-up student lounge with a large flat-screen TV, an array of couches, a pool table and foosball and air hockey games. The walls of the lounge, which is downstairs from the Eagles Perch Caf6, are freshly painted and will soon sport the art of any student who'd like to participate in the mural project about to be launched. The group has sponsored a number of recent events, including a dance held during Black History Month and a Valentine's opportunity drawing, which featured a host of prizes donated by local merchants. Other activities were a celebration of Pie Day, also known on campus as Pi Day in honor of the unit of measurement equivalent to 3.14 (or March 14). ASFRC director of activities and vice president Jed Richard said that next year will be even more notable, because the date -- 3/14/15 -- correlates to the first five digits ofpi: 3.1415.

FRC math instructor Michael Bagley worked with the associated students to buy pies for students to enjoy on the day. Bagley has also launched the STEAM Club, which focuses on science, technology, engineering, art and math. For St. Patrick's Day, students partnered with Chef Mike to award students wearing green a free cookie. Tours of Quincy are also available to show students what Quincy has to offer. Richard said most students living in the dorms don't go into town because they think there's nothing to do. The group aims to change that perception by partnering with local businesses, such as Carey Candy Co., Midtown Cuff, Sweet Lorraine's and others in Quincy and East Quincy. Future community events ASFRC plans to participate in are line dancing, Earth Day and Day in the Mountains, all coming up this spring. They also hope to bring back FRC Night in Quincy. In the past the event has offered students xtended : ....... o  and viSi bu'sinesses, iSi'ovided .... :" outdoor music venues and given the community a chance to welcome out-of-town and local students to their new college community.
