Feminist Studies Salon on 10/21

The next Feminist Studies Salon will be on Tuesday, October 21st, at 4:30, in the Howry Center.  There will be a discussion and talk about Spring courses as well as what one can do with a FST degree (i.e., jobs and grad school) as well as why minoring or majoring in FST is a great choice.  And, of course, anything else you want to discuss!


As a reminder, these are informal gatherings where FST students, faculty, and staff can talk about FST issues over food and drink.  You can come late or leave early, bring a friend, and bring in topics for discussion.  Send any questions or suggestions to Lysane Fauvel or Alison Kafer.


We hope to see you there!

Save the World with the Food You Choose to Eat!!!

Did you know that animal agriculture is responsible for more green house gases than all forms of transportation in the world combined!?! One of the aspects of SEAK's Food4Thought campaign is to raise awareness of how our overconsumption of meat is hurting animals and the environment. Therefore, we are trying to gain student's support for a Meatless Monday campaign. However, this campaign is just trying to REDUCE people's meat-intake by making the entree line meatless, but still having meat served everywhere else in the commons like usual (burgers, pizza, etc.). So meat will still be available for those who do not want to participate. If you support this campaign please sign our petition below, so that we can encourage the Commons to
initiate it! Thank you all!
