Community Spotlight: NSU Foundation, Tulsa Dog Run, & Hallowmarine!

October is a busy month for students battling midterms, but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for fun! We have two AWESOME events this month that are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

NSU Foundation

The Northeastern State University Foundation empowers students and alumni to pursue their academic goals by providing scholarships and other funding. Founded in 1971, the Foundation has helped lessen the financial barrier of education and research faced by many students — for over four decades. Sundance Office is proud to be a supporter of the program, having donated through our Sundance Cares program for three years!

See recipient Kristie and Michael’s letters thanking NSU Foundation:

It’s midterm season, but everyone can reduce their stress with….

Tulsa Dog Run: By Your Side

Hosted by the Parkside Psychiatric Hospital & Clinic, the Tulsa Dog Run is back! Sign up to join the cutest marathon in the nation on October 7th. The run also features several contests for your pup: dress them up in their best costume, show off their coolest trick, and have a blast!

The Tulsa Dog run raises money for Parkside’s By Your Side Patient Assistance Program, which provides essential resources to those in need. This event lets you and your pup have a GREAT Saturday — while also helping you make a difference in the lives of your fellow Tulsans.

5k runners and walkers will receive a water bottle donated by Sundance in their swag bag! We had a lot of fun making it and hope you have a lot of fun at the run!

Hallowmarine at the Oklahoma Aquarium

Organize Your Day In Style With Our Best Calendars!

Calendar & Planners

In today’s fast-paced world, staying organized is essential for managing our personal and professional lives. With numerous commitments, appointments, and tasks to juggle, having a reliable and efficient organizational tool is a must. Our House of Doolittle and At-A-Glance calendars have you covered! Designed for both form and function, these calendars come in many varieties to fit your needs and help you stay on track!

Seamless Integration of Style and Functionality

While functionality is paramount when it comes to calendars, there’s no reason why organization can’t be stylish. House of Doolittle and At-A-Glance calendars are designed with a wide range of styles, designs, and themes. From minimalist and elegant to vibrant and artistic, there’s a calendar to match every individual’s aesthetic preferences.

The ability to personalize your organizational tool adds a touch of excitement to your planning routine. Instead of a mundane and utilitarian calendar, you’re greeted by a visually pleasing arrangement of colors, patterns, and images that reflect your unique taste. This infusion of style not only makes the process of planning more enjoyable but, also encourages you to engage with your calendar regularly.

Several Format Options to Fit Your Needs

  • Desk Pads: Desk pad calendars feature a large flat writing surface that lays on the desk. These pads often include reinforced corners for durability. This style provides ample space for writing and is often used in office settings.
  • Wall Calendar: A standard calendar! Top bound, these calendars flip to each month with a different image on each page. Can be hung on the wall.
  • Tent Calendars: Similar to wall calendars, tent calendars flip each month to a new image. Small and compact, these calendars form a self-standing tent to fit on any desk top.
  • Planners: These journal style calendars feature plenty of space to plan your week day by day. After one page showing the month in a standard grid format, each week or day gets its own page. Planners often include appointment time slots to help plan hour by hour!
  • Laminated Wall Planners: These large planners display the year in one quick glance. Attach them to the wall and use a water-soluble marker to make notes and plan ahead. Simply wipe off to reschedule.

When choosing a calendar style, consider your space, needs, and personal preferences. Whether you prefer a decorative calendar, a space-saving option, or a calendar that provides hour by hour planning, there’s a style that suits you!

Digital vs. Physical: The Tangible Appeal

In an era dominated by digital solutions, the tactile experience of using a physical calendar offers a refreshing change. Our calendars provide a tangible way to engage with your schedule. The act of physically writing down appointments and events can reinforce memory retention and help you develop a deeper connection with your plans.

Furthermore, the absence of notifications and pop-ups from digital devices minimizes distractions, allowing you to focus solely on your calendar during planning sessions. This undivided attention can lead to more thoughtful scheduling and a greater sense of control over your time.

Tips for Maximizing the Efficiency of Your Calendar

  • Color Code: Use different colors to categorize various aspects of your schedule. Assign colors to different categories of work tasks, meetings, personal appointments, and more. This makes it easier to identify different commitments at a glance.
  • Weekly Reviews: Dedicate a few minutes each week to review and update your calendar. Cross out completed tasks, add new ones, and ensure that upcoming events are accurately recorded.
  • Reminders: While physical calendars lack automatic reminders, you can set up your own reminder system. Use sticky notes or bold markers to draw attention to impending deadlines.
  • Celebrate Achievements: When you complete a task or attend an event, take a moment to cross it off or place a checkmark. This simple act of acknowledgment can boost your motivation and sense of accomplishment.
