President’s Weekly Update for Monday, Oct. 8

There’s a lot of “good stuff” taking place on campus this week.

  • SVSU will be in the national spotlight this Thursday, as CBS Sports Network will broadcast our football game against Wayne State to a national audience. Only six NCAA Division II games are carried as part of the package each year, so we are quite fortunate to host such a game for the second consecutive year. Let’s use this occasion to make a positive impression on many people who may be unfamiliar with our university.
      
  • Our colleagues who have published work over the past year will be recognized during an authors reception at 4 p.m. today  in the Roberta Allen Reading Room.
      
  • Visiting scholar Arthur Caplan presents a public lecture, “Bioethics: Just Because We Can, Should We?” Tuesday at 7 p.m. In addition to the public talk, Caplan also will participate in a roundtable discussion with philosophy faculty and meet with several classes. His visit is co-sponsored by the Edwards Lecture on Philosophy and Religion.
      
  • Our theatre department presents an award-winning classic as its first production of the academic year. “Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" opens Wednesday and runs through Sunday. American playwright Edward Albee in received a Tony award for the play in 1962. This play is Albee’s sweet tale about domestic tranquility in an academic household – not really!
      
  • Career Services is holding a fall career fair this Friday from noon to 3 p.m. Students and alumni can pre-register on the Career Services Website.
      
  • First SVSU Students Receive Early Admission to MSU med school.  As you may have read in the news last week, two of our students have been assured admission as medical students at Michigan State University to begin their studies in August 2013, as SVSU’s first participants in a new partnership announced last year. This program is a good example of cooperation among Michigan’s public universities and speaks highly of the undergraduate preparation our students receive.
