Eisenberg to Speak at Science Week 2013

Next week is a busy one on Loyola’s LakeShore Campus. With the University Libraries participating in “Open Access Week” (see the recent post to the iLWeekly blog), and the School of Nursing hosting “Exercise Science Week” (see here), there’s hardly room for more. But let’s go crazy and throw another “Week” into next week, shall we?

This one, hosted by the Career Development Center, is geared toward the students (see here). I hope the faculty will encourage their students to participate. Actually, the events look pretty exciting for me as well, so maybe I’ll see you there!

Marty Gahbauer (mgahbauer@luc.edu) is the contact person at the CDC:

“Please join us for Science Week during the week of Oct. 21. There are a number of seminars and activities designed specifically for students majoring in the Sciences including the areas of Physical Science (Chemistry, Physics), Technology/Computer Science, Mathematics & Statistics, Life Science (Biology, Natural Science, Environmental Science) and Pre-Health.

“The purpose of Science Week is to educate students about the extensive career fields and opportunities that exist in the various science and technology disciplines as well as related graduate school programs. Join us the week of October 21 and please bring your curiosity and questions. To view the list of Science Week activities, click here.”

The keynote speaker is appearing as part of the Undergraduate Colloquium Series hosted by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. He will be telling us about the increasing importance of math and science to Medicine. I hope to see you there.

Coordinates: Tuesday, Oct. 22, 4:30 p.m., Quinlan LSB Auditorium. Refreshments at 4:00 p.m.

Speaker: Robert Eisenberg (Rush University)
