There are two important events this week that I strongly encourage you to attend:
DELIBERATIONS SYMPOSIUM: Deliberations is the Thompson Writing Program’s journal of first-year writing. This Friday Oct. 28 4-5 pm in the Von Canon Room (lower level of the Bryan Center) there will be a symposium and reception in honor of the authors whose work is published in the 2011 issue of Deliberations. Yes, it’s parents weekend, so bring your parents along! I haven’t decided on the details yet, but there will be extra credit associated with attending and/ or writing about this event. I’ll e-mail out more information soon!
POPULATION BIOLOGY SEMINAR: This week’s population biology seminar (in the Biology Department) is entitled Consequences of ocean acidification for sea urchin development. The talk will be given by Dan Runcie, a graduate student in Dr. Greg Wray’s lab. The talk will be this Thursday, Oct. 27 at 5 pm in FFSC 3232. I probably will not issue extra credit for attending this event, but I encourage you to attend and tell us what you thought!
