Don’t miss out on viewing the incredible student works displayed in ‘(in)organic’!

Located in the Dean's Suite on the 3rd floor of the AAC, the artwork on display was created in Painting Professor Deborah Howard’s spring Painting Portfolio Workshop.

For this exhibition, students were challenged to create a piece that was the opposite of art they usually made. This led to a discussion of the opposite ideas of organic and manufactured, resulting in the students choosing the exhibition title (in)organic.

Artworks Displayed
1) Teagan Orce, ‘Fixin Vixen’, Oil and metal on canvas, 2024
2) Genevieve Desch, ‘Crochet Flesh #1’, Mixed media, 2024
3) Deborah Howard, 'Beyond the Reach of Memory', Cast paper, acrylics and found objects, 2024

06/03/2024

Stressed out about finals? Make sure to utilize all of the amazing resources located in the AAC!

The Science and Engineering Center is a collaborative space staffed by undergraduate and graduate learning assistants trained to assist students with first and second year biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering lecture and laboratory courses.

Our goal is to help students grow as problem solvers by assisting with homework sets, lab reports, and preparing for exams. The Science and Engineering Center is not a one-on-one tutoring center, but is rather a support system where students can get guidance from TAs as well as their peers.

Want to find something to read but don't have time for a full book? Check out a few short stories from the University Libraries' New Book Section!

1) 'We're Here: The Best Q***r Speculative Fiction 2020'
Edited by series editor Charles Payseur and guest editor C.L. Clark, showcases sixteen q***r science fiction, fantasy, and horror short stories published in a difficult year.

2) 'Medusa's Ankles: Selected Stories' by A.S. Byatt
A ravishing, luminous selection of short stories, from ancient myth to a British candy factory, from a Chinese restaurant to a Mediterranean swimming pool, from a Turkish bazaar to a fairy-tale palace. Byatt transports her readers beyond the veneer of the ordinary--even beyond the gloss of the fantastical--to a place rich and strange and wholly unforgettable

3) 'My Haunted Home: Stories' by Victoria Hood
My Haunted Home by Victoria Hood is a short story collection held together by the common theme of haunting. In stories of mourning, surrealism, and obsessions, different narrators delve into their own worlds to explore how grief is felt and harvested in funny, sad, and unnamable ways

This week’s Page Turners highlights books in the library where things are not always as what they seem...

1) ‘Rouge’ by Mona Award
For as long as she can remember, Belle has been obsessed with When her estranged mother, Belle finds herself back in Southern California, dealing with her mother's considerable debts and grappling with lingering questions about her death. The stakes escalate when a strange woman in red appears at the funeral, offering a tantalizing clue about her mother's demise, followed by a cryptic video about a transformative spa experience. There, Belle discovers the frightening secret behind her (and her mother's) obsession with the mirror--and the great shimmering depths (and demons) that lurk on the other side of the glass.

2) ‘Our Wives Under The Sea” by Julia Armfield
Miri thinks she has got her wife back, when Leah finally returns after a deep sea mission that ended in catastrophe. It soon becomes clear, though, that whatever happened in that vessel, whatever it was they were supposed to be studying, Leah has carried part of it with her.

3)
Area X has claimed the lives of members of eleven expeditions. The twelfth expedition consisting of four women hopes to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself.

Spring is in the air! What better way to celebrate good weather than to lay out on the campus green with a good book 📖🌷🌱

We have plenty of floral-themed romance books to choose from. Our top choices right now are:

1) 'Bonsai' by Alejandro Zambra:
'Bonsai' is the story of Julio and Emilia, two young Chilean students who, seeking truth in great literature, find each other instead.

2) 'Yerba Buena' by Nia Lacour:
Following two women on a star-crossed journey toward each other, 'Yerba Buena' tells a story about self-growth, letting go of painful histories, and the struggle of building your own home.

3) 'This Bird Has Flown' by Susanna Hoffs:
‘This Bird Has Flown’ is a meet-cute between an American one-hit wonder and an Oxford professor, telling a tale of second chances with love, careers, and life.
