Corrections & Clarifications:
Mistakes do happen, but this is one we are extremely proud to correct. The article "CLASS Donors fund $10.3 million in scholarships, research and construction" in the September issue of CLASS News had an incorrect number. The College actually raised $13.1 million in gifts and pledges during the 2012 fiscal year. Thank you to each of our donors for your generosity, which helped the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences set this new record.

October 25 – Lecture: The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed
Visionary Texas-based sculptural artist and Mitchell Center Artist in Residence, Dario Robleto, investigates the connection between creativity and loss. Part artist talk, part performance, Robleto uses storytelling, along with his vast collection of rarely seen sounds and images to suggest this profound connection between loss and creativity to change our notions of "deep time" and what we expect from the role of memory as a device to combat death and loss.
