Another Anniversary:

To honor that milestone, a special program has been arranged at the Building 50 Auditorium on Saturday, Sept. 23. Attendance is free, but registration is required. Among the distinguished group of speakers are energy pioneer Art Rosenfeld, UC Santa Cruz science historian Michael Riordan, noted cosmologist Michael Turner of the University of Chicago, and Italian physicist Michelangelo Mangano.

Coffee Bar, Grill Move

On Tuesday, the Coffee Bar will move to the beverage island across from the salad bar. Both areas will move back to their original locations on Tuesday, Sept. 26. For more information on construction, contact Nick Peterson (x6314), and for the cafeteria, Peter Oshinsky (x5357).
