"People some times really need to improve there righting skills." If that sentence looked OK to you, you might be one of those people, and it's probably time to visit Dr. Kendra Gaines of the Writing Skills Improvement Program. Today at 5 p.m. in Modern Languages, Room 310, Gaines will answer any questions you have about your current writing project or writing in general. The discussion is part of a free, semester-long series of workshops held every Wednesday. For more information, contact Donna Rabuck at 621-5849.
As soon as you finish improving your writing skills with Gaines, head downstairs to attend the UA Peace Corps information session. At 6 p.m. in Modern Languages, Room 203, the UA Peace Corps recruiting office will be covering general requirements, the application process, and various programs and opportunities such as loan deferment and graduate programs. For more information, contact Jeff Ogren at 621-7188.
At one point or another, everyone has wondered where to go to see Chinese calligraphy combined with human placenta. Fortunately, the UA Museum of Art has solved that problem. The current exhibition "Power of the Word," which features nine contemporary Chinese artists putting a new spin on Chinese calligraphy, will continue through Sunday. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, contact Alisa Shorr at 621-7567.
In the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, many UA community members have been left with questions about the political realities and implications of the attack, as well as the United States' response. As a result, UA professors from the Near Eastern studies and political science departments will speak about these issues at a panel discussion moderated by Brendan Tarnay, Model United Nations secretary general. The discussion begins tonight at 6 in Social Sciences, Room 100. For more information, contact Sofia Ramos at 626-3394 or 621-5627.
