Events: Not that you don’t have enough to do already…

Here’s more! Today includes some must see (well, hear) lectures and…everything. I’m sorry to professors, but you cannot possibly get any work done tonight! There’s just too much going on.

Love your body day!

Field hockey is hosting the second annual Love Your Body Day which includes a fair on Chapin Lawn from 8 am till 4 pm. Stop by!


Women & Financial Independence are hosting Financing Life, presented by economics professor Randall Bartlett. This session will focus on saving for retirement (scary stuff! but helpful) and will talk about “The magic of compound interest and exponential growth; time aspects of saving plans; taxes and retirement.” This is useful to everyone (as long as you’re not already an econ genius) so everyone should go. Plus: the first 75 people get free lunch. For more information and the handout (maybe?), go here or call 413.585.3653. Be there, Neilson Browsing Room from 12-1 pm.


Eszter Hargittai (’96) presents a lecture on “Ensuring Equitable Access to Knowledge: the Role of the Library in the 21st century.” This will focus on the “digital-social divide” in web use among students. This looks pretty fascinating, so you should go to the Neilson Browsing Room from 4:30-6 pm. No pressure though.


This panel is for anyone with interests or art or East Asian culture! It’s about Japanese ceramics presented by Todate Kazuko and Shigematsu Ayumi and Touch Fire. It looks pretty great, so be in Weinstein Auditiorium (In Wright Hall) from 5-7:30 pm (which is actually a horrible time to schedule anything — lucky for you, Tyler will be open till 8:30 pm).


Float Night is here! Come see the floats beautifully decorated by houses, orgs, and athletic teams. Prizes will be awarded to the team with the best float and the one with the most spirit. Also, recieve free pint glasses and root bear floats. And, to top it all off, there will be a flip cup tournament so even if you’re not competing in the float competition, you can join the tournament. Therefore, your only option is to get your game face on and head over to the Crew House Dance Studio from 6-1o pm.


Joseph Sebarenzi, former head of the Rwanda Pariament and author of “God Sleeps in Rwanda: A Journey of Transformation” will speak about his book and his life in Rwanda. Neilson Browsing Room, 7:30 -9 pm.

Just for fun

Are you smarter than your professor? I know you’ve thought it at least once. Go to the Carroll Room in the Campus Center at 9-11 pm and find out for sure.
