Things That Happened, Things To Do–Week of 3/22
Each Monday, the editors at Dispatches offer a recap of things that happened over the weekend and a look ahead at what’s going on this week on campus. We hope to point you toward links that you may not have seen, alert you to events that you won’t want to miss, and call your attention to items that captured ours. Enjoy.
- Yes, the media is saturated with news and opinions concerning the politics of health care reform, but we consider Matthew Dickinson’s blog on presidential politics a must-read. As you can imagine, he’s been focusing on health care reform lately, and his analysis has been smart, insightful, and a great non-partisan source for information.
- If you’re in the job market, the Career Services Office has launched a new blog that focuses on careers that have a social or environmental impact.
- The men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams made quite a splash at the NCAA championships in Minneapolis, Minnesota last week. Junior John Dillon was named the male swimmer of the meet while capturing a pair of individual championships (and setting school records in the process).
- Faculty and students are on spring break this week, so campus is quiet. The Museum is open, though, and there’s still time to catch a great exhibit that examines the heated 18th-century debate over the source of Western Civilization.
