Upcoming Events

Professor Carl Richard’s Lecture on “The Founders and the Bible”

Thursday, September 15th 7pm

Regis Room (Student Center)

On Thursday September 15th, 7p, Regis Room (Student Center), Professor Carl Richard of Louisiana State University (Lafayette campus) will give a free 50-minute public lecture on his new book, The Founders & the Bible, which examines how the framers of our constitutional form of government were extensively shaped by and regarded this most important of all books in American history and, indeed, western civilization. Dr. Richard takes issue with the common perception is that the Founding Fathers were deists who held a watch-maker's view of the Almighty, i.e., God made the world but henceforth left it to its own devices. Honors hosted Dr. Richard several years ago when he spoke about the Roman influence on the Western world, and he is a fine speaker, especially for an undergraduate audience. I hope many of you will come to hear this lecture, which will have refreshments.

Honors Trip to Stratford, Canada

Sunday, September 18th 8:30am-7:30pm

Leave and return from KAC (Upper Lot)

Cost: $5

*** Honors Students Only ***

NEW PRICE! Honors has bought 30 tickets for this year's Stratford Festival performance of Shakespeare's Macbeth. The tickets are available on a first-come, first served basis, and will cost $5 each (a great bargain), payable to Alice Steltermann in Horan O'Donnell 206. Participants will have to sign a release form in Alice's Chemistry department office and supply cell phone numbers. The bus will depart from the Koessler Athletic Center's upper lot at 8:30a; lunch on your own at one of the several eating establishments; the play at 2p; the bus returns to Buffalo about 7:30p, if all goes well. Participants must have a valid/current passport or an enhanced driver's license.

This trip is one of the highlights of the Honors year, as the small Ontario town is charming and the acting superb. It's also nice just to escape Buffalo for a day with friends.

PS: Do not forget the FUDGE SHOP. If demand is greater than supply, I may see about additional tickets to this tragedy or another theatrical production in Stratford, but there are no guarantees.

Also, see Alice for a $10 refund if you already signed up under the $15 old ticket price. Thanks!

Honors Trip to Seneca Falls

Saturday, September 24th 8:45am-5pm

Cost: $5

In this year in which a woman has for the first time captured the nomination of a major American political party, it seems appropriate for Honors to make a trip to Seneca Falls, New York, where the first women's rights convention was held (1848) with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Susan B. Anthony among the organizers. There are a number of places to see in that charming river town , including the chapel where the convention was first held, the home of a leading organizer (Elizabeth Cady Stanton), the Museum of Women's Rights, the National Women's Hall of Fame, and a museum of waterways & industry. The 2-hour bus trip will take place on Saturday, September 24th, 8:45a, and will return by 5p. Student cost is $5, payable to Alice Steltermann in HO 206. You must also sign a trip release form and provide your cell phone number. Alice is ordinarily in her office on weekdays between 8a and 2p, with time off for lunch.

Sponsored by: Honors Program, Women & Gender Studies, and the History Department.
