For Students

Welcome to the new students dashboard page. It’s a work in progress. Take a look around. Make some suggestions. If you’re not ready to fully commit to the new format, that’s OK. We can all ease into this. The old page you loved or loathed is still available here.

Snapshot: December 1, 2016

T-minus 9 days until exam week, guys. Some people would say it’s time to hunker down and lock yourself in a carrel (or that one secret study space that you think no one else knows about but you don’t want to lose it.) But, if you’d rather enjoy your last few days of freedom, we’ve got the stuff for you.

ThursdayHave you ever wondered what the purpose of business is a society? (I know I do every time I’m charged money for shipping.) Well, the Mudd Center for Ethics has got you covered. Nien-hê Hsieh, a visiting professor from Harvard, will be talking about The Role and Responsibilities of Business in Society: Back to Basics in Northen at 5:00pm.

FridayDon’t have enough time to wrap presents AND de-stress from exams? Why not both? The Japanese Program is hosting a Christmas Origami Session from noon to 1:30pm in the Book Nook in Leyburn. Bring home those skills over break and impress your family. Fact: everyone is impressed by origami.

Freaking out about applications and interviews? Career Development has your back. Stop by CGL 123 at 12:20 for the Professional Documents and Interviews Session. Learn about making strong resumes, drafting cover letters and crushin’ that next interview. Also – free pizza. RSVP on LexLink @ Event 436.

The wreaths are up and it’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays here in Lex. Get in the holiday spirit and stop by Downtown for the Lexington Christmas Parade. Starts at 6pm – you can’t miss it! (Literally, it’s a parade.)

SaturdayStill full-up on Thanksgiving? Don’t worry – the Jingle Bell Run is here to save you from too-much-pumpkin-pie-guilt. Open to all runners (and walkers), the race starts at 10am on the Nelson Street Bridge. (Plus, it means you can eat all you want during Christmas break.) Science.

Looking AheadPsssst! Did you get your tickets for the Holiday Pops Concert? You didn’t?? Well, they’re free – but required if you want to go! Call the Box Office (540 458-8000) or just stop on by. You wouldn’t want to show up at the door and not have a seat!
