    A representative from the BGS program will be attending the Graduation Fair at Triton College to discuss options for students who are interested in completing a bachelor’s degree. The program is ideal for adults who work full-time, serve as caregivers, raise families, and for whom a traditional degree program does not meet their needs given a busy life.

    Visit the EIU table located in Room B270, for answers to questions about admission and transfer credit requirements. Courses are offered online, and face-to-face at various locations in the Chicagoland area.

    Quantitative reasoning (QR) is a very important and often overlooked undergraduate university learning goal at EIU.  In AY 2018 nearly half of the departmental assessment plans at EIU did not include a QR learning goal.  In addition, national assessment data suggests that EIU freshmen and seniors have significantly less QR skills than do their peers at other universities.  This workshop is designed to encourage more departments to focus on the quantitative reasoning learning goal and to incorporate it in their classes.  We will highlight the resources that are available to faculty and focus on best practices for instruction in teaching QR skills. This workshop will include examples of lesson plans, in-class assignments, and participation in a group activity.

    This program combines both lecture and hands-on experience in the kitchen. No cooking or nutrition experience is required. The best part is, you get to eat what you make!

    March 27, 2 p.m., “Celestial Suite,” presented by EIU Faculty Brass Quintet, Booth Library Atrium.

    The Celestial Suite reflects upon and comments on the relationship between astronomy and sacred music. It is a piece in five movements, with each movement highlighting one of five astronomers/physicists, and each being represented by a member of the brass quintet:

    Copernicus – Trumpet (Dr. Jenny Brown, Assistant Professor of Trumpet)
    Galileo – French Horn (Dr. Jessica Pearce, Adjunct Professor of Horn)
    Newton – Tuba (Dr. Evan Kelsick, Instructor of Tuba and Euphonium)
    Hubble – Trombone (Dr. Will Porter, Instructor of Trombone)
    Hawking – Trumpet (Keven Lewis, Invited Guest Artist)

    Each movement relates, for the most part, to the sacred music of the individual’s time period in history. For the most part, this collection of individuals is more a look back at the history of space exploration. However, the final movement does leave us pondering the question of how and why we are here, which ends the piece in the present and looking toward the future.

    In between each movement, the performer who is about to be featured will introduce their movement by speaking about the astronomer/physicist represented, sacred music of that time, and how this is explored in the music.
