Taking Advantage of All the Wonderful Speakers and Events

Lectures and Symposia Provide Students an Exciting Environment for Learning, Sharing and Community Outside the Classroom

One of the most rewarding aspects about working on a college campus is being surrounded by smart people, talking about interesting AND important things. There is always so much going on around our school and across the campus, it is impossible to take advantage of it all. And like so many others, I get so focused on the work at hand that I don’t always pay attention to all that is happening around me.  I hurry through my day and often forget that I am part of this rich and diverse environment.  So, this year,  I have made myself a promise to slow down and make time for some of the wonderful speakers and events across the school and university.  Here is just a sampling of upcoming events.  I even have a couple marked down on my calendar to enjoy !
