    Dear Math & CS Student,

    In the efforts to strengthen the community within the Mathematics & Computer Science Department, I want to reach out and invite you to join the Math & CS Club.  We are reinstating this organization to provide a way for students to interact with each other and create relationships under the topics of mathematics and computer science.

    This semester we have a unique and interesting opportunity provided to use by the library.  The library is currently holding their Spring exhibit which is about Space and Space Exploration.  They thought it would be interesting if there were a group of students that would like to work together and produce a collaborative piece about the technical side of space exploration, mathematics and computer science.  The library would allow you to display this work throughout the semester or even conduct an oral iteration of the work.  Their exhibit also invites important people within the space exploration community, people who have devoted their lives to the subject area.  Those people would be interested in holding one on one conversations and discussions with groups of students interested in the area of space exploration.  That group would be Math & CS Club.

    This club is also not restricted to the majors, we encourage anyone who is interested in the fields of mathematics and computer science to join.  If you know anyone that would be interested please let them know.

    Finally, my name is Seth Yeakel, a Junior Mathematics Major, and I have high hopes for this organization  Our goal is to provide each and every one of you new and exciting experiences.  This organization may also provide students with an outlet for their undergraduate research and student teaching experiences, allowing for students to compare and contrast ideas or experiences they have held separately.  I sure hope you consider joining, our first meeting with be held Wednesday February 13th at 4:30pm in 2210 Old Main.  If you are interested please message me @Seth W Yeakel and if you are unable to attend, but are interested please do likewise.  I want to start the Registered Student Organization process once we have dedicated membership and our proposed constitution is attached.

    Thank you for considering this rare opportunity and to also strengthen the Mathematics & Computer Science Department,

    -Seth Yeakel

    Less than .1% of Indiana’s and Illinois’ original prairies and wetlands remain today. We’ll learn about conservation efforts at The Nature Conservancy’s Kankakee Sands which has preserved or restored over 7,300 acres of natural area and connects 22,000 acres of habitat in Northwest Indiana. Kankakee Sands is home to over 100 rare, threatened or endangered species and supports the endangered Regal Fritillary butterfly, red-headed woodpeckers, plains pocket gophers, short-eared owls, ornate box turtles, glass lizards and over 700 native plant species, filling the land with song and sights to behold. In 2016 23 Bison were brought to the site as part of the restoration process. The herd has grown to over 50, and amazing changes are taking place on the prairie.

    Kevin and Paul Baumann, brothers, are very knowledgeable about local cemeteries and have visited many other cemeteries in their travels internationally. They will start the day with a PowerPoint presentation on Tombstone Art. In the afternoon, Roselawn-Mound Cemetery and Old City Cemetery will be toured, with Paul and Kevin as guides. One just might hear bagpipes in the background and see re-enactments of moments in the life of pioneers who lived long ago. In case of rain, we will meet back in the library (after lunch on your own) for afternoon stories of art in the lives of those who lived here in Coles County long ago.

    This event offered through a collaboration of:  Coles County Arts Council, Academy of Lifelong Learning, Coles County Historical Society and Coles County Genealogical Society

    Registration required by 9/23 at 581-5114.  $10 per person.  16 and under N/C.

Strips of scrap fabric, clothing, and anything cloth related were sewn together and referred to as 'strings'. Common amongst the thrifty quilter, these were useful and much loved for their warmth and artistry. We will follow the evolution of these String Quilts into the modern quilt movement today. Begin a small project wtih some basic sewing supplies as you design your own project with the basic string block. Listen, learn, and love to stitch? Bring a dish or snack to share at lunchtime and your drink, as we share stories of the quilts and quilters in our lives. Supply list will be sent to each registrant.

    Dr. Zhiwei Liu will briefly introduce the biological background of teas and the tea plant, the classification of teas and how they are made, and how to properly brew different kinds of teas. You will be then taken on a journey back into the Chinese history to find out how this little plant has become integrated in the Chinese culture, from poetry, to daily life of the average folks, and finally to become a government-controlled merchandise, and how these little leaves led the Middle Kingdom into a position to defend itself against invading western powers and eventually opened itself to the rest of the world, although reluctantly. While you immerse yourself in the fascinating stories of tea, you will be invited to taste several of Dr. Liu’s favorite teas directly from China.

    Offered by the Academy of Lifelong Learning; instructed by Dr. Zhiwei Liu, hosted by The Cafe, Klehm Hall.  Seating is limited - registration requested at 217-581-5114 by 10/28.
