FRIENDLY REMINDER OF SCENT-FREE POLICY

  • In response to health concerns, Arts & Humanities  has developed a Scent-Free Policy.  Scented products such as hairspray, hand lotion, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches.  Instructors, students, staff and visitors are asked to not use these products when visiting the A&H office.  Arts & Humanities at Bellevue College is a Scent-free environment.  Remember, what seems like a light application to you can bring on
    a situation where someone is put into serious distress.  Please be mindful.  The biggest culprit is “perfume.”  Please read more.

PUBLICATION NEWS

  • English instructor, Dan Tremaglio, had three short stories published over the summer. “Culminating in Coconut Water” came out in Flash Fiction Magazine, “Give & Take” was reprinted in the anthology The Real Jazz Baby by Reflex Press, and “0-1” ran in 101 Words.  Congratulations Dan!
