Michal Konwerski, Chef de Partie at the National Stadium in Warsaw, visits campus next week to share some of his country’s classic dishes.
Beets, potato pancakes, salmon with leek sauce and of course, pierogies, are just some of the meals Konwerski will prepare during dinner at West Dining Hall Thursday, Oct. 9, and lunch in Upper Class Friday, Oct. 10. His recipes also will be featured at Ozone Café’s weekly lunch Friday in Old Chapel.
Several Union students recently presented their research at the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium Upstate New York Undergraduate Research Conference at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, N.Y. Over 30 oral presentations and nearly 60 poster presentations took place during the conference on Sept. 20.
As part of a new national effort aimed at preventing sexual assault on college campuses, Union has planned a number of activities and programs.
On Friday, President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. launched a public-service campaign, “It’s On Us,” that hopes to fundamentally shift the way sexual assault is viewed on campuses “by inspiring everyone to see it as their responsibility to do something, big or small, to prevent it.”
A West Coast recruiter for Admissions, renovated study spaces in Schaffer Library and expanded faculty development programs are among the projects awarded special grants to support the College’s Strategic Plan.
“On Longing,” featuring work by Frank Rapant ’07 that addresses the grieving process “from a faithless standpoint,” is on view at the Burns Art Atrium Gallery in the Visual Arts building Sept. 23-Dec. 24.
Rapant is the College’s photography lab technician and Schaffer Library staff photographer, and he exhibits his work locally. This show, he said, was inspired after the loss of a friend.
