    A representative from the BGS program will be visiting Oakton Community College in Des Plaines 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 on Student Street, next to the cafeteria, 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.

    The Geology and Geography Department will be unveiling its new mineral display on Thursday, February 21st at 2 pm outside of PHY 2040.  Some of the stars of this collection include meteorites - including one from the Moon!  Additionally, this display boasts an autographed photo of Harrison Schmitt, the first and only scientist to have gone to the Moon.  Dr. Schmitt holds the distinctions of being a geologist, university professor and former U.S. Senator as well as being the last living human to walk on the surface of the Moon.  This display has been created from donations and specimen loans from Rick Smith at the Doe Run Mine, Geno Persico, Jake Crandall and Diane Burns as well as departmental purchases.  The collection is intended to be used both academically as well as decoratively, with specimens being removed periodically from display so as to be incorporated into classroom demonstrations.  Additionally, the display is open to the public for viewing during normal campus hours, and local schools have a standing invitation to set up instructional visits to enhance their curriculum.

    Feb. 21, 3:30 p.m., “Baby Steps to the Moon,” presented by Steve Daniels, chair, Department of Physics, Witters Conference Room 4440, Booth Library.

    On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong stepped off of the Lunar Module and onto the surface of the Moon saying “One small step for a man”.  That was during the Apollo 11 mission.  But many small steps occurred during the previous Apollo missions to get to that point.  I will discuss the Apollo program and the many steps that had never been taken before as we reached for our goal.  Each of these steps were necessary preparation for Mr. Armstrong’s grand finale.
