Date: October 24, 2018
Time: 7:30 PM - 10:30 PM EDT
Event Description:
Student Life at Mont Alto: 1908 and 2018,” by Peter Linehan, associate professor in forestry. “Mont Alto students have always had to work hard to succeed in their studies,” Linehan said.  “Although student life 110 years ago was very different from today (no Internet or cellphones for example), there are many aspects that haven't changed much at all (students still need to have fun and relax). “In this talk, we will discuss the different social and academic conditions at Mont Alto between 1908 and 2018.” Weather permitting, Kim Herrmann, associate professor of astronomy, will also lead a Star Party after the presentation in the field between Orchard Road and the General Studies Building parking lot from 8:45 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Telescope viewing and night-sky tours with green laser pointers will be part of the star party activities. Multiple telescopes should be available, courtesy of the TriState Astronomers (tristateastronomers.org), a local amateur astronomy club.  In the event of cold weather, patrons should wear layers of clothing and bring jackets, hats, and gloves. Please note that if the weather does not cooperate for viewing, due to precipitation or cloud coverage, the star party may be cancelled.
