Wed., April 20, 2011
12:30-1:30 p.m. – Dr. Curtis Young, natural area coordinator, will lead a Nature Walk through the Lima Campus’ Tecumseh Natural Area, one of Allen County’s largest wooded areas with approximately 200 acres of forest. The group will meet in front of Galvin Hall.
3:00 and 6:30 p.m. – There will be two showings of the Pixar film Wall-E in the Galvin Game Room. The film tells the futuristic story of the small robot, Wall-E, who finds himself thrust into an adventure in which the fate of humanity rests upon his mechanical shoulders.
3:30 p.m. – Students will exhibit artwork in the Recycled Art Contest in Reed 160. Faculty members of the art department will jury the show that will consist of artwork from three categories: collage, sculpture and wearable.

One winner from each category will receive a gift card.
