The Writing Center (in Franz 120, the Learning Resource Center) is available to your summer students as a resource for their writing assignments. In contrast with regular semesters, where students make appointments via an online schedule, summer appointments are made via email on an as-needed basis. Writing@up.edu is the general e-mail through which students can arrange an appointment with any of four writing assistants this term (Megan Lester, Sara McCrohan, Erin Savoia, Andrea Turel). See the Writing Center website at www.up.edu/lrc/writing/ for information about writing resources, and for questions contact Lars Erik Larson, English, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pat Bognar, performing and fine arts, will show a selection of her photographs, titled “Holga Adventures,” at 12×16 Gallery (8235 SE 13th Ave. No. 5) from June 5-29. There will be a First Friday reception on Friday, June 6 from 6 to 9 p.m., and an artists’ reception on Sunday, June 8, from 2 to 4 p.m. Pat’s love of working with film in a digital age is well known; she uses a plastic Holga camera to record scenes from daily life in Portland, taking it with her every time she leaves home. She makes her own prints as well. For more information contact Bognar at email@example.com or go to www.12x16gallery.com.
One year ago on May 23, the University lost beloved biology professor David Alexander after his two-year battle with cancer. He taught on The Bluff from 1995-2013 and received the Becky Houck Award for Excellent Advising in 2013. The University Museum has created a memory tribute to David with a slideshow on the Museum blog at http://tinyurl.com/opzlfwr.
