For Students

Snapshot: April 27, 2017

How’s Spring Term going? Ready for summer yet? Or wishing your class could never end? Well, we’ve got ways to make Spring Term go by faster or make it last forever!

Thursday

How did the Greeks tell time? It’s not a joke. It’s an actual question. How? Don’t know? Professor Colin Webster of UC Davis will be talking about “Time, Technology, and the History of Ancient Science” – the history of Greek astronomy as a history of technology. Talk starts at 5:00pm in Hillel – so get there a little earlier to grab a great seat!

Friday

Feeling a need for some classics? What about classical music? There will be a Guest Piano Recital featuring Jonathan Chapman Cook. He’ll be playing a set of Beethoven sonatas. Tonight only – 8:00pm – no tickets are needed!

Saturday

What’s the best way to spend a Saturday of Spring Term? Lacrosse Day! We’ve got a double feature this weekend. First, we’ve got the Men’s team against Randolph-Macon at noon at Wilson. Right after that, the Women’s team is going against Randolph at Alston Parker Watt Field at 2:00pm! Go Gennies!

Sunday

Spring Term is the time for hiking – and hiking we shall! Join the Outing Club today for a hike through Devil’s Marbleyard. OC Van leaves the Evan’s Hall parking lot at 6:00pm – and will get back around 9:30. Bring good shoes, mate.

Looking Ahead

Gary Dop – poet, writer, professor, actor, visiting professor – will be at Friday Underground (sssssssh! it’s underground!) on May 5 at 9:00 p.m. in the basement of the ARC house. Special guest? Special event! Be there or be…. Overground.
