Relive your childhood today at the PTYS/LPL Colloquia. Well, sort of - the lecture is titled "Playing with Dali's: Assembling the DISR Field Panoramas."

What happens when a student notices a comet hurtling toward Earth at tremendous speed? Chaos, of course! See how our government might deal with such a dilemma tonight at Gallagher Theatre. "Deep Impact" plays tonight at 7:30 and 9:50. Be dazzled by special effects for a nominal fee of $2.50.
The University Activities Board's Films Committee presents a different kind of potential destruction tonight at 7:30. "Reefer Madness," a 1937 propaganda film about the dangers of marijuana, will be showing in the Cellar for free. The film is renowned for its over-exaggeration of the side effects and damages caused by smoking the green leafy substance. Check it out - this is probably the only time you'll see a humorous take on marijuana here on campus.
