Winter Symposium Day in photos

More than 1,000 students and faculty came together Jan. 23 on Winter Symposium Day to discuss Nature and Human Nature. Students had nearly 30 sessions from which to choose. There was standing room only in Dr. Sean Georgi's session on genetically modified food and Dr. Mike Wolf's session on asbestos, clay and quartz. Students also could choose to go off-campus for a Symposium Day of action through volunteering. 

Spring Symposium Day April 9 will have the topic Social Justice.
