Tulane Honors Program

Friday, September 15, 2006

Lots of fun and exciting activities are taking place on campus.

Above all don’t forget to reserve this coming Thursday afternoon for what promises to be a “groundbreaking” discussion on the geological underpinnings of the Katrina disaster by Professor Steve Nelson, chair of the Department of Earth and Environmental Studies. His already popular course on “Natural Disasters” took on even greater poignancy this past year. Spring and Lagniappe semesters, Professor Nelson spent a great deal of time visiting with students the sites of the levee breaks in the New Orleans area. He has recently published his assessment of events and is ready and willing to talk with Honors students and answer any questions you have. Undoubtedly, there is no better scholar on campus to give you the scoop on the environmental causes and effects of Katrina…..
Hope to see one and all on Thursday, November 21, at 4:30 in the Butler Hall lounge. Refreshments will be served and lots of astonishing images provided!!!!

Keeping with the theme of Katrina – pre and post, mark your calendars for the extraordinary visit by Ambassador Andrew Young on Monday, Sept.25 at 5pm at McAlister Auditorium. He will speak on "Empowering You to Change New Orleans and the World." Among many of Ambassador Young's
achievements, he is the Chairman of Goodworks International, former
Ambassador to the United Nations, former Mayor of Atlanta, and was one of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s top advisors.

Until then, take full advantage this weekend of the many cultural events occurring across campus and to top it all off, they’re FREE!!!!
The Newcomb Institute hosts the all-female swing trio, the Pfister Sisters, today from 4–6 p.m., 43 Newcomb Place.

Enjoy “stargazing” tonight with the premiere of “All the King’s Men” at McAlister!

If you like classical guitar, don’t miss the Klasinc and Loncar Guitar Duo on Saturday, September 16 at 8 p.m., Dixon Hall. Free admission.
