So we hit Rocky Point for a little spring break fun, but what do we know about the country invaded by hundreds of college kids each year? Not a damn thing probably. Thank God for Joaquin Ruiz, dean of the College of Science, who is here to offer us a little insight into "The Geological Evolution of Mexico: A Story of Continental Crustal Growth." What's that you say? Just one more reason for you to show up to the Center for Creative Photography by 12:15 p.m. Drop Sue Robinson a line at 621-4700 if you want to know what to expect.

So you've spent all this time creating the perfect Web site, but you're not getting any hits. Chances are it's not as accessible as you may think. A 1:30 p.m. workshop will help you determine what barriers prevent Web surfers from reaching your site and show you examples of good and bad pages. The program will be in the Marley Building Auditorium. You need to register for this class, so call Robert Lanza at 621-3633.

Who would have thought movies were made about math? Well it's true and they're hitting the UA campus. Robert Devaney of Boston University will present "Chaos, Fractals and Dynamics," featuring basics such as fundamental arithmetic through more complex issues like the breaking frontiers in current mathematical research. Yeah, we know it sounds almost as absurd as making movies about math. But you never know, it could be fun, so give it a try. The program starts at 4 p.m. in Room 202 of the Family and Consumer Resources Building. Give John Leonard a call at 621-6874 for more information.

So you're wondering just how many ghost towns one state could really have. It's obviously more than you think because the Arizona Historical Society is offering another lecture on them. On tonight's plate - Millville and Charleston. Art Austin, an assistant park manager for the Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park, will give you the low down on these two former mining towns, twin communities that were instrumental in the development of Arizona's beloved Tombstone. The lecture will be held in the main museum of the Arizona Historical Society and starts at 7 p.m. The lecture costs between $3 and $6.

You thought your parents bother you enough about what you're going to do with your future, but now you have a former UA student and current journalist questioning your plans too. Raul Aquirre will speak to Hispanic students today in Room 211 of the Economics Building about "Quien Eres, Que Eres, A Donde Vas?" It's not a quiz, there are no right or wrong answers, he's just here to help guide you. The program starts at 7 p.m., and if you've got any questions, just give Sofia Ramos a call at 621-5627.
