Open House

We had a great time at today's Open House.  Many majors, as well as some students considering the major, dropped by and had a donut and coffee.  Lots of provocative conversation was had, from a discussion with Dr. Javadizadeh about the literary significance of the year 1959, to some thoughtful speculation about whether Game of Thrones has tried to present more empowering depictions of women in Season Six.  The lounge will continue to be open and available for student use from 9:00-5:00 Monday through Friday.  And, remember, if climbing all those stairs to the 4th floor of SAC looks like too much, there is an elevator!
