Come to the Farrand Field grand opening
Join Chancellor G.P. "Bud" Peterson at the dedication ceremony for newly renovated Farrand Field this Friday, Aug. 17 at 12:30 p.m. The field renovation is the final piece in a comprehensive plan to improve outdoor recreational needs, funded by student fees. The stage is an open pavilion for concerts and other events. The surrounding stone sitting wall, funded by donations from the graduating class of 2006, borders the north and west sides of the field, and the west stone arch entryway is a gift from the class of 2004.

Papier-mâché Mice on display in Norlin Library west lobby
A new exhibit featuring papier-mâché mice is showcased at the Norlin Library through Aug. 21. Sculptor Lisa Michot was inspired by everyday activities to bring these mice to life. The display includes library mice at work on computers, reading books and representing their favorite Greek organization. Each figurine has its unique style that reflects trends with college students today. The exhibit can be seen on the north and south side of the entrance hall in the Norlin Library. For more information visit Lisa Michot.
