The semester has officially started, and as we’re all busy greeting old friends and making new ones (and frantically finishing syllabi), here’s a list of things we can do this month together!
Annual Lehigh / Community Expo will be held today, Monday, August 29 from 4:00-6:00 pm on the University Center Lawn. It’s a great place to get a feel for what the community and Lehigh has to offer in terms of culture, food, and club activities.
On Wednesday, August 30 at 4:10 pm we will have our first department meeting of the semester. Lots of exciting changes, events, and projects are happening and will be discussed.
Every Thursday, the Bethlehem Farmers’ Market happens down in Farrington Square. It’s a great place to grab fresh fruit and vegetables or just a lunch from one of the many food trucks or stalls.
On Friday, September 3 at 12:10 pm, the Graduate Student Meeting will be held in Drown 210. We will begin the elections, talk about what’s to come this semester and of course begin the process of finding a new co-editor for this very blog!
Excitingly we have Bich Minh Nguyen slated to come talk on Tuesday, September 6 at 7:30 pm. As part of the Notations series, this lecture will occur in the Zoellner Arts Center. Nguyen authored the memoir Stealing Buddha’s Dinner, one of the books chosen for the Office of First Year Experience’s Summer Reading program for freshmen. Check it out and definitely encourage your students to do so as well!
