As the school year comes to a close, many students are beginning to set their sites on bigger and better residences for next year. If you are looking to get off campus, or even just out of your complex, check out today's 2001 Off-Campus Housing Fair. This event will showcase more than 40 apartments, several locating services and representatives from storage companies and UA Parking and Transportation. Free information will be available on the Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For further details, please call Hannah Roth at 621-5859.
The Learning Strategies Workshop provides students with a variety of helpful hints necessary for making it through the UA. There are two workshops being held today at 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in the Bear Down Gym. The first will focus on effective note-taking strategies, while the latter will explore common problems associated with test taking. Both workshops are open to all students and free of charge. For more information on either of these lectures, please call Karen Gutierrez at 621-4548.
Water plays an important role in U.S. government decisions, as well as those made overseas. At today's 3 p.m. Middle Eastern Studies Lecture, visiting scholars will focus on "Transboundary River Issues in the Middle East." Panel members will explore the necessity of public water bodies as well as the conflicts that often occur as a result of disputing ownership. The lecture will take place in the Franklin Building, Room 202H. For more information on future lectures, please call Anne Bennett at 621-8079.
Metaphors lead the way for today's film adaptation of the novel "The Invisible Man" at 6 p.m. The movie, "King of the Bingo Game," draws a parallel between the book and the disenfranchisement of the black community after Emancipation and prior to the Civil Rights Movement. The film will be shown in the Martin Luther King Jr. building, Room 100, and students are requested to arrive early. The event is free of charge, and refreshments will be served. For more information on other screenings, please call Tania Corliss at 621-5665.
