"Hands-on undergraduate education"



Always a good thing, where possible. A film short at the OU site is here. "OU" here is Ohio University in Athens, Ohio; Patrick Muhlberger is a relative.

I found it odd that one speaker referred to the USA as "here in the States." An undercover Canadian?

Upcoming Conferences: March 28-9, 2008


At the end of March, there will be two consecutive academic conferences at Nipissing, both held at the former Precious Blood Monastery across College Drive from the main complex. (Yes, distant reader, NU has its own monastery! Picture above (taken and copyright by F. Noel!))

The first of these is the Third Annual Community History Conference, sponsored by the History Department. It takes place on Friday, March 28, tentatively beginning at 8:30 in the morning and finishing at 5 pm. In the past this has included a lot of participation by community members and Nipissing History students, and has been a great success. Contact Dr. Katrina Srigley at NU for more details; further announcements will be posted here, too.

Beginning at 5:30 that same evening, in the same venue, will be NU's first Undergraduate Research Conference. It will continue on Saturday. I think the name speaks for itself. Again, more detail as it becomes available.

If you are a NU student in fourth year with a project you think has possibilities, please consider submitting a proposal!
