♦ In response to health concerns, Arts & Humanities has developed a Scent-Free Policy. Scented products such as hairspray, 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.

Invitation from Nan Ma “Since Terrence Hayes’s visit to campus in the spring, a group of faculty from various programs have been meeting informally to discuss poetry and short fiction. As our division is making celebrating the arts a priority, we would like to extend an invitation to the whole division. We meet the first Friday of each month at 10:30. We will be discussing the poetry of the Chinese poet, Bei Dao. Read one poem, or read them all! We hope to see you at the next meeting.”
