Fall break is one day away and as students finish up midterms (or start celebrating that midterms are over), there is plenty to do on campus today.
Bright and early at 11 am, there is a lecture on "alternative water sources for use in electric power production." This lecture doesn't really fall within the scope of my academic interests, but for those with an interest in engineering or the environment, this should be right up your alley.
International Affairs types will enjoy this lecture on overcoming apartheid in South Africa, while Architectual Enthusiasts should get a kick out of this colloquium on melding the best of traditional architecture and urbanism - surely a relevant concern for modern builders.
For a fierce and fun event, cheer on the Irish hockey team against Lake Superior State at 7:30 pm - exciting for even the most amateur hockey fan.
Do you like foreign film? Today is your lucky day, with not one but two excellent films showing at the DPAC tonight: Seraphine at 6:30 and Welcome at 9:30 pm. Seraphine is said to be an especially beautiful French film and I'm hoping to see it with friends.
What else is going on around campus? Tonight many students will be gathering around the television with their friends as a number of favorite college TV shows are on, such as The Office, Grey's Anatomy and Community. Students are busy preparing for the weekend football game and for traveling home this fall break.
Thank you for reading. Go Irish!
