New Front End Alignment System - Auto Tech

 Permanent link

 Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical recently added a newly purchased Hunter Front End Alignment System to its Automotive Technology program.  The purchase of the new system was a result of the need to stay current with the change from hydraulic alignment systems to electric alignment systems.  A recent program reaccreditation visit from NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation), along with Advisory Committee recommendations strongly supported the need for the addition of this new equipment to ensure the college maintains its high level of training in the automotive area.

Farm Management Program Reunion: A Success

 Permanent link

 

It has been years, several years actually, since many of the 100 alumni who gathered at Southeast Technical College have stepped foot on campus.  For most, the last time they pulled into the parking lot they were students of Winona Technical in the Farm Management Program.  Now, gathering again on this day in 2009, with classmates from the past and their instructors, the camaraderie among these former classmates was what an alumni reunion is all about.  There were many hand-shakes with a familiar face sparking the memories they have of ‘back then’, followed by endless conversation that filled the student center throughout the afternoon. 

The reunion came to be after, Nick Redig, a graduate of the Class of 1976 contacted Southeast Technical Alumni Coordinator Jeff Meyer.  After learning the program had met for three previous reunions on their own, Meyer invited the group to join again, but back on campus this time.  “It is a great opportunity to connect with our alumni and keep the college connected to the community as a whole,” stated Meyer.  "Todays attendance shows us that we could be doing this more with other programs, and we will work to make that happen."

Important information regarding your books and your money

What affects the resale value of your books?

One or more of these examples will influence the resale value of your textbooks:

  • Instructor has notified the Campus Bookstore that the textbook will be reused and the
    Bookstore needs additional copies. (You receive up to 50% of new or used value, limited quantities) 
  • The instructor has decided not to use the book again OR has not submitted their textbook adoptions to the Campus Bookstore (in this case we are unable to buy any copies for the store). 
  • The Campus Bookstore already has sufficient quantities on hand to meet projected sales. Quantities bought are LIMITED - come to Buyback early for the best opportunity. 
  • If a book is not being used on OUR campus (or we already bought our limit), the wholesaler may buy it for resale to other colleges in the U.S. & Canada. National demand determines the value of textbooks that are bought by the wholesaler. 
  • The textbook has been published in an updated version; the current version is obsolete at the time of buyback. Once this happens the book has little to no value to bookstores throughout the nation. 
  • The condition of your book may be too poor to be bought back and resold to other students (i.e. missing/damaged components, water damage, soiled, damaged, excessive highlighting, answers written in study guides and workbooks).

Be proactive! Ask your professor about reusing the same book next semester!
