It’s that time of the quarter: the last few weeks where everything is due and everyone is as busy as can be. But if you can take the time out of your schedule to attend one or two of these great events at DePaul, do it. You deserve the break, and you’ll thank Ex Libris later (trust me).
This week, Nov. 7th- 11th, is Adult Student Week, sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity. Adult Student Week celebrates adult, graduate, professional, and veteran students with a week of entertainment, career workshops, film screenings, info sessions, live music, and lots more. The kickoff event is TODAY Monday Nov. 7th from 4-6 p.m. at the DePaul Center room 11017. Stop by for food, resources, giveaways, and information on the rest of the week’s events.
Festivities will conclude on Friday, Nov. 11th, from 5-7 p.m. with an end of the week celebration also in the DePaul Center, at the North Cafe.
The Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies and Masters of Arts/Sciences in Interdisciplinary Studies programs present a special Green Fire Screening Event, TONIGHT Monday, Nov. 7, from 6-9 p.m. All are invited to attend at DePaul’s LPC Welcome Center, 2400 N. Sheffield, to share the newly released documentary film (2011), conversation, and refreshments.
Green Fire examines the life and work of groundbreaking conservationist and writer Aldo Leopold. An exciting interdisciplinary group of discussion leaders will share their insights about the film and Leopold’s pivotal conservation text, A Sand County Almanac. They are expecting attendees from not only across the curriculum, but from across the city.
RSVPs to 773-325-7840 appreciated, but not required. Feel free to share the invite.
The second of two Career Center events specifically for English students is coming up this Wednesday, Nov. 9th. Join us in the Dorothy Day Room of the LPC Library from 6- 7:30 p.m. for the Career Panel for English Students to hear Betsy Crist, Lisa Spengler, Chris Green, and Perrin Davis speak about their long and diverse careers in publishing, writing, communications, literature, and teaching.
And finally, for some end-of-the-week stress release and fun, stop by Brownstone’s Annex in the LPC Student Center on Friday Nov. 11th from 6-7 pm for the final show of the quarter by DePaul’s Write Club.
Write Club is a high-energy literary event featuring 6 writers, 3 bouts of opposing topics, 5 minutes a piece. Audience picks the winner.
