On Campus: Religious Diversity, One Book Program, Live Stats
Religion on Campus Week. Quakers, Muslims, Jews, Pagans, Buddhists, Sikhs and Christians of many stripes are among those expected to participate in Religion on Campus Week, Feb. 4-11. A kickoff "spirituali-tea" in the Campus Center at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4, opens a series of events, some hosted by campus religious organizations and some interfaith events organized by Intercultural Affairs student assistants Mariah Pepper '09 and Tamara Tomasic '08. Among the highlights of the week are presentations on women's rights and Islam, a performance titled "It's All Good in the Hood: The Hijabi Monologues," an interfaith workshop on sexuality, an interfaith prayer workshop, a film, a discussion of religion and food practices, and a Friday Diversity Conversation focusing on the diversity of Christianity represented at Bryn Mawr. For a complete schedule, see the Intercultural Affairs Web site.
One Book, One Bryn Mawr. The Women's Center and the Program in Gender and Sexuality hope to spark a campus-wide conversation with a "One Book, One Bryn Mawr" campaign that began Jan. 22 and will continue until Feb. 22. All members of the community are invited to read Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves by Serena Anderlini-D'Onofrio, a proefessor of humanities at the University of Puerto Rico and a leading bisexual advocate of polyamory, or consensual nonmonogamy. Two discussions are planned: one for Wednesday, Feb. 7, and one for Wednesday, Feb.14, both from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Haffner Dining Hall. On Wednesday, Feb. 21, Anderlini-D'Onofrio will give a talk titled "Taboo Relationships and Erotic Learning" at 7:30 p.m. in the Quita Woodward Room; a discussion and book-signing will follow. Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves is available in the Bryn Mawr College Bookshop.
Live Stats. Can't make it to the game but want to keep up with the action? The Bryn Mawr Athletics Department offers live online statistics. Before each game, a link to the live stats for both home and away games (hosted on Bryn Mawr's site for home games and by opposing teams' sites for away games), will be posted prominently at http://www.brynmawr.edu/athletics/. Sports Information Director and Compliance Officer Jacob Mullins says he hopes to stay ahead of the technological curve and is looking into the possibility of streaming video of games, with a target goal of the end of the 2007-08 academic year.
