Weekly Update 5 11/13/12

It's seventh week. Midterms are all over now, right? Right? Ha! Well, in the midst of all that stress it must be nice to come to an SA meeting!

Meeting ReminderIt's going to be a knock-down, drag out, fight to death debate tomorrow, November 14th, at 6pm in the Spirit Cafe, in the basement of Rockefeller Chapel. The topic? "Should girls ask boys out?" This is a very controversial topic, so I expect people to be bringing their A-game.

But really we're going to have a fun debate in which I assign sides and everyone comes up with the silliest/funniest/most compelling arguments on both sides. And it all involves warm drinks and cookies!

Upcoming Events
  • NT Wright is an evangelical intellectual from St. Mary's college, talking tonight at 7pm about the ethos of Christianity and how that relates to the ethos of a university. Like most evangelicals, he thinks homosexuality and abortion are sins and said at the Veritas Forum at Northwestern yesterday that "secularism leads to gas chambers." It's up to you all if you want to go or lead a righteous protest. Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/408066335909881/
  • Much more excitingly, Hemant Mehta is coming to talk about critical thinking, education and mathematics on December 5th, at 6:30, in Stuart 105! We'll have pizza and hang out with him starting at 6:15 or so, and the talk starts at 6:30. It's going to be amazing.
  • Look out in these emails for our finals week event!
See you all tomorrow!!
