Clarksville, TN – For 19 years, Gregg Schlanger sauntered across the Austin Peay State University campus wearing a blazer, an untucked shirt and a ball cap pushed back on his head. He’d stop the students, faculty and staff members who crossed his path to make a joke or tease them affectionately.
He was unassuming and relaxed, but for those who knew him, he was a deeply serious artist whose work brought light to important social issues, such as the availability of drinking water in Third World nations. Earlier this summer, Schlanger ended his long tenure at APSU as professor and interim chair of the art department in order to head up the art program at Central Washington University.

Ribbon cutting Thursday afternoon opened the newest APSU facility
Austin Peay State University has always set a goal of encouraging their students towards academic excellence. Towards this end the University has created a new facility dedicated to their high achieving students. Becoming a Honors Student isn’t automatic, and having good grades alone will not grant you access to the new facility.
Earlier this summer, when workers attached the words “Honors Commons” to a red brick building in the heart of the Austin Peay State University campus, a major milestone was reached. For the first time in APSU history, the University had a designated space for high achieving students.
This fall, those students will meet, study, socialize and attend classes inside the newly renovated Honors Commons. The 8,000-square-foot building, which will officially open during a ceremony on Thursday, September 2nd, will house both the University’s Honors Program and the President’s Emerging Leaders Program.
The grand opening will be from 4:00pm to 6:00pm that Thursday, with a ribbon cutting at 5:00pm. Local dignitaries will be in attendance, and the community is invited to tour the new space and enjoy refreshments. «Read the rest of this article»
