Microsoft Excel 2013 - Dashboards
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Whether you need to crunch numbers for sales, inventory, information technology, human resources, or other organizational purposes and departments, the ability to get the right information to the right people at the right time can create a powerful competitive advantage. But with so much data available and being created on a nearly constant basis, the ability to make sense of that data becomes more critical and challenging with every passing day. You already know how to get Excel to perform simple calculations and how to modify your workbooks and worksheets to make them easier to read, interpret, and present to others. But Excel is capable of doing so much more. To gain a truly competitive edge, you need to be able to extract actionable organizational intelligence from your raw data, and present it in a visual format that enables decision makers to view key trends and conclusions at a glance. And that's exactly what this course aims to help you do.

This course builds upon the foundational knowledge presented in the Microsoft® Office Excel® 2013: Part 1 (Second Edition) course and will help start you down the road to creating advanced workbooks and worksheets that you can use to create dashboards. The ability to analyze massive amounts of data, extract actionable intelligence from it, and present that information to decision makers is the cornerstone of driving a successful organization that is able to compete at a high level.

sUgAR Gallery Exhibtion: GROUND RULES
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Off Campus - The sUgAR Gallery

Curators Corey Oberlander and Lindsey Stapleton present a collection of work by artists working within a set of self-defined boundaries; working within, around and between these drawn lines. Focusing on their practice and process, GROUND RULES will exemplify the variation and deviation that can exist within these parameters. 

Painter-cum-sculptor Matthew King discovers great variation within his restricted toolkit. Working with limited palette and composition, King references the minimalist powerhouses of the 60's and 70's while letting the hand of the artist remain a consistent variable throughout each collection. In the smaller works, King employs nostalgic imagery, repeating shape and color patterns that move the viewer through the series effortlessly. The large works exude a sense of time - the conceptual and physical labor not-hidden behind seamless lines or smooth surfaces.  

Using labor as a medium in its own right, Charlie Smith saws, drills, paints and jams raw materials into place. Through repetitive common actions of 'building'. Smith applies labor to form to labor to form, changing the identity of his original object and making it something new. The new "thing" becomes the piece, wherein the qualities of the paint and wood and concrete and labor and paper are blended together to become a tangible manifestation of this process. These created personalities are stubborn, humorously self-deprecating and complicated; expressive in their simplicity.

Heather Leigh McPherson has invested much of her time in exploring expression. Her latest body of work deals with painting, digital expression, and contemporary models of subjectivity. Despite a cross disciplinary approach, McPherson's process embodies a concise grouping of traits across pieces. Her palette, mark-making and compositions remain consistent. She employs the same face over and over, exploring multifaceted expressions compounded by flurries of activity in paint and Photoshop. These painterly marks allow for not only variation within her approach, but also within the emotions and expression of her composition. Movement, occasionally literal, keeps the viewer discovering nuance and intent when looking at these similar compositions. 

Ross Normandin is, on some level, making the same piece over and over. For his series titled Wins, Crashes, Normandin is focused on the process of making instead of the final results. Attempting to remove the possibility of a "favorite," Normandin's paintings each hold the same material, composition and process. However, subtleties prevail and Normandin forces particular character into his limited materials and compositions.

Bonded by a process-based practice, these artists each work with a particular form, action, or material that resonates. They are each working to grow within those limitations, while simultaneously staying on their course.

The gallery, located at 1 East Center on the downtown Fayetteville square, will open to the public on Friday, January 22nd from 6-8pm for an opening reception. The exhibition will be on display until February 21st with open gallery hours on Saturdays from 9am – 1pm.

The sUgAR gallery is an interdepartmental exhibition space featuring the visual research of students, faculty, and visiting lecturers from the Department of Art and Fay Jones School of Architecture representing the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Interior Design. sUgAR is made possible by the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Art, the Fay Jones School of Architecture, and the University of Arkansas’ Facilities Management.

Archeology of Historic Cane Hill
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Off Campus - ARAS - Arkansas Archeological Survey

Archeology in Historic Cane Hill, Arkansas The Ko-ko-ci Chapter of the Arkansas Archeological Society will hold its February meeting on Tuesday 9th at 7pm. Guest speaker will be Dr. Jamie Brandon, Station Archeologist with the Arkansas Archeological Survey – UAF. He will present “Preliminary Archeology at the Methodist Manse in Historic Cane Hill, Arkansas.” In the spring of 2015 the Arkansas Archeological Survey began a long-term joint research program with Historic Cane Hill, a non-profit dedicated to historic preservation in western Washington County, and Auburn University at Montgomery. This project sought to investigate historic properties in the town of Cane Hill―the earliest settlement in Washington County, founded in 1827. Known for having one of the earliest colleges in the state (Cane Hill College) and for it role in the Civil War (the Battle of Cane Hill), the town is also home to sixteen sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As Historic Cane Hill purchases and restores historic properties in the region, the Arkansas Archeological Survey is conducting research and providing information that will help guide the restorations, and help manage these important sites for future generations of Arkansans. The first of these research programs was a “Spring Break Dig” at the small, brick building known as the Methodist Manse. Allegedly constructed in 1834, the Methodist Manse would be the oldest building in its original location in Washington County. The Manse was built as the first Methodist Church in Cane Hill, and later served as the pastor’s residence, and the headquarters for General James G. Blunt during nearby Civil War battles. During the twentieth century, the Manse was the residence for Mary Pyeatte, granddaughter of John Rankin Pyeatte, one of the founders of Cane Hill. However, as Historic Cane Hill was poised to restore this building, there were many unanswered questions about this structure and its history. Led by Drs. Jamie Brandon and Jodi Barnes, over 50 volunteers and staff took part in the excavations between March 23 and 27, 2015. We learned a great deal about the history of the structure―including evidence of a major fire in the late-nineteenth century and massive landscaping in the early twentieth century. This talk is free and open to the public. Refreshments served. The meeting will be held at the Arkansas Archeological Survey, which is located at 2475 N. Hatch Ave., Fayetteville (off Garland Ave., across from Agri Park and next to the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science Arena). Contact Marilyn Knapp 479-283-5720, mxj02@uark.edu for details or directions.

sUgAR Gallery Exhibtion: GROUND RULES
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Off Campus - The sUgAR Gallery

Curators Corey Oberlander and Lindsey Stapleton present a collection of work by artists working within a set of self-defined boundaries; working within, around and between these drawn lines. Focusing on their practice and process, GROUND RULES will exemplify the variation and deviation that can exist within these parameters. 

Painter-cum-sculptor Matthew King discovers great variation within his restricted toolkit. Working with limited palette and composition, King references the minimalist powerhouses of the 60's and 70's while letting the hand of the artist remain a consistent variable throughout each collection. In the smaller works, King employs nostalgic imagery, repeating shape and color patterns that move the viewer through the series effortlessly. The large works exude a sense of time - the conceptual and physical labor not-hidden behind seamless lines or smooth surfaces.  

Using labor as a medium in its own right, Charlie Smith saws, drills, paints and jams raw materials into place. Through repetitive common actions of 'building'. Smith applies labor to form to labor to form, changing the identity of his original object and making it something new. The new "thing" becomes the piece, wherein the qualities of the paint and wood and concrete and labor and paper are blended together to become a tangible manifestation of this process. These created personalities are stubborn, humorously self-deprecating and complicated; expressive in their simplicity.

Heather Leigh McPherson has invested much of her time in exploring expression. Her latest body of work deals with painting, digital expression, and contemporary models of subjectivity. Despite a cross disciplinary approach, McPherson's process embodies a concise grouping of traits across pieces. Her palette, mark-making and compositions remain consistent. She employs the same face over and over, exploring multifaceted expressions compounded by flurries of activity in paint and Photoshop. These painterly marks allow for not only variation within her approach, but also within the emotions and expression of her composition. Movement, occasionally literal, keeps the viewer discovering nuance and intent when looking at these similar compositions. 

Ross Normandin is, on some level, making the same piece over and over. For his series titled Wins, Crashes, Normandin is focused on the process of making instead of the final results. Attempting to remove the possibility of a "favorite," Normandin's paintings each hold the same material, composition and process. However, subtleties prevail and Normandin forces particular character into his limited materials and compositions.

Bonded by a process-based practice, these artists each work with a particular form, action, or material that resonates. They are each working to grow within those limitations, while simultaneously staying on their course.

The gallery, located at 1 East Center on the downtown Fayetteville square, will open to the public on Friday, January 22nd from 6-8pm for an opening reception. The exhibition will be on display until February 21st with open gallery hours on Saturdays from 9am – 1pm.

The sUgAR gallery is an interdepartmental exhibition space featuring the visual research of students, faculty, and visiting lecturers from the Department of Art and Fay Jones School of Architecture representing the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Interior Design. sUgAR is made possible by the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Art, the Fay Jones School of Architecture, and the University of Arkansas’ Facilities Management.

Bridge is a challenging game; each hand is an adventure. Bridge is a partnership game.

This class is aimed at the intermediate level player (definitely NOT for beginners). Emphasis will be on playing the hands rather than formal classroom instruction, understanding and applying the many conventions available to today’s bridge player and enjoying yourself.

From TOMs shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, Poverty, Inc. plays the gadfly in this eye-opening examination of Western interventions in the developing world. The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore. Join us for a campus screening of this award-winning new film! The event is free to the public.

sUgAR Gallery Exhibtion: GROUND RULES
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Off Campus - The sUgAR Gallery

Curators Corey Oberlander and Lindsey Stapleton present a collection of work by artists working within a set of self-defined boundaries; working within, around and between these drawn lines. Focusing on their practice and process, GROUND RULES will exemplify the variation and deviation that can exist within these parameters. 

Painter-cum-sculptor Matthew King discovers great variation within his restricted toolkit. Working with limited palette and composition, King references the minimalist powerhouses of the 60's and 70's while letting the hand of the artist remain a consistent variable throughout each collection. In the smaller works, King employs nostalgic imagery, repeating shape and color patterns that move the viewer through the series effortlessly. The large works exude a sense of time - the conceptual and physical labor not-hidden behind seamless lines or smooth surfaces.  

Using labor as a medium in its own right, Charlie Smith saws, drills, paints and jams raw materials into place. Through repetitive common actions of 'building'. Smith applies labor to form to labor to form, changing the identity of his original object and making it something new. The new "thing" becomes the piece, wherein the qualities of the paint and wood and concrete and labor and paper are blended together to become a tangible manifestation of this process. These created personalities are stubborn, humorously self-deprecating and complicated; expressive in their simplicity.

Heather Leigh McPherson has invested much of her time in exploring expression. Her latest body of work deals with painting, digital expression, and contemporary models of subjectivity. Despite a cross disciplinary approach, McPherson's process embodies a concise grouping of traits across pieces. Her palette, mark-making and compositions remain consistent. She employs the same face over and over, exploring multifaceted expressions compounded by flurries of activity in paint and Photoshop. These painterly marks allow for not only variation within her approach, but also within the emotions and expression of her composition. Movement, occasionally literal, keeps the viewer discovering nuance and intent when looking at these similar compositions. 

Ross Normandin is, on some level, making the same piece over and over. For his series titled Wins, Crashes, Normandin is focused on the process of making instead of the final results. Attempting to remove the possibility of a "favorite," Normandin's paintings each hold the same material, composition and process. However, subtleties prevail and Normandin forces particular character into his limited materials and compositions.

Bonded by a process-based practice, these artists each work with a particular form, action, or material that resonates. They are each working to grow within those limitations, while simultaneously staying on their course.

The gallery, located at 1 East Center on the downtown Fayetteville square, will open to the public on Friday, January 22nd from 6-8pm for an opening reception. The exhibition will be on display until February 21st with open gallery hours on Saturdays from 9am – 1pm.

The sUgAR gallery is an interdepartmental exhibition space featuring the visual research of students, faculty, and visiting lecturers from the Department of Art and Fay Jones School of Architecture representing the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Interior Design. sUgAR is made possible by the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Art, the Fay Jones School of Architecture, and the University of Arkansas’ Facilities Management.

Bridge is a challenging game; each hand is an adventure. Bridge is a partnership game.

This class is aimed at the intermediate level player (definitely NOT for beginners). Emphasis will be on playing the hands rather than formal classroom instruction, understanding and applying the many conventions available to today’s bridge player and enjoying yourself.

OLLI: The Adventure of Alaska
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Learn about the history, ecology, geology, and wildlife of America’s last frontier.  The story starts several hundred million years ago as geological forces begin to assemble the land we know today.  Recorded history opens with the Russian-American Fur Company and its Hudson Bay partner.  Then Mr. Seward takes over with his folly of a purchase and the exploration begins in earnest.  We’ll cover the story of great Alaskan naturalists like John Muir, Adolph Murie, and Henry Allen.  Soon Carmack and Henderson start the Yukon stampede.  Then Alaska comes into statehood with the establishment of national parks, wildlife preserves, native corporations and the mineral extraction industry.   That leaves time for a photographic excursion through the various regions of Alaska highlighting its scenery and wildlife.  All topped off with the day by day chronicle of a strenuous backpacking adventure in some of the most remote parts of the Brooks Range where we pass through Eskimo villages and land in small planes on the open tundra.  And that’s just the beginning of the adventure.

Lunch will be provided.

Moot Court Show Round
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Main Campus - (WATR) Leflar Law Center

The University of Arkansas Law School has two teams competing in the ABA Law Student Division National Appellate Advocacy Competition (NAAC).   NAAC emphasizes the development of oral advocacy skills through a realistic appellate advocacy experience.  Competitors participate in a hypothetical appeal to the United States Supreme Court. The competition involves writing a brief as petitioner or respondent and then arguing both sides of the case in front of the mock court.  On the briefs, Cristen Handley, Elise Holman, and Nathan Finch (Brief Writer) represented the petitioner, the United States, and Caleb Lang, Joe Hout, and Alex Nguyen (Brief writer) represented the respondent, a police officer.  The officer is charged with a federal hate crime for shooting an unarmed, young black man, who the officer pulled over for a traffic violation.  The officer alleges that his Fourth Amendment rights were violated when a fellow officer broke into his locker and retrieved his body camera.  Since submitting their briefs in early January 2016, the students have been practicing their oral advocacy for Regionals.  The teams will compete in the Las Vegas Regional, one of six regionals held across the country, on February 25th-27th.  Regional winners will compete at Nationals in Chicago in April.   As a final step in team preparation for Regionals and in order to preview oral argument for the 1L class, the Board of Advocates is hosting a show round on Tuesday, February 23rd at noon in the Leflar Law Center Courtroom. This event is free to current University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, students as supported by the Associated Student Government through the Office of Student Activities and funded by the Student Activities Fee.

Visiting Lecture - Dr. Casagrande-Cicci discusses the "Little Baths" Excavation in Turkey
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Main Campus - (KIMP) Kimpel Hall


Excavating, Reconstructing, and Visualizing the Past: the So-called Little Baths of Elaiussa Sebste, Cilicia (Southeastern Turkey) 


Since 2012 Dr. Casagrande-Cicci has supervised the excavation of a bath complex situated in one of the cities of Cilicia: Elaiussa Sebaste. The structure in question, called the “Little Baths” for its particular dimensions and layout, is one of the few baths under excavation in the region.

The ongoing excavations have raised many questions: Is the complex public or private? How does it integrate with the rest of the city’s infrastructure? While many questions remain, the preliminary results of the excavations shed new light on the role of baths in the Classical Period in Cilicia and provide new evidence for Late Antique and Early Byzantine transformation and reuse of buildings constructed in Antiquity.

In this paper the results of three seasons of excavation will be presented, together with work toward developing reconstructions and interactive visualizations.

OLLI: 1968: The Year that Rocked the World
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Nineteen sixty-eight was a year beset by revolutions that rocked the world. The Tet Offensive in Vietnam, student protests, and assassinations challenged American's self-confidence and cohesion in an election year that would facilitate the rise of the Right in U.S. politics. Paris, Beijing, Prague, and Mexico City witnessed their own revolutions and reactions as societies worldwide grappled with a youthful postwar generation and the social movements they led. In short, 1968 stands as one of the most critical years of the 20th century: it polarized American politics, set the United States on a course out of Vietnam, and precipitated actions that would help unmake the Soviet Union and end China's isolation from the world.

OLLI: Introduction into Portrait Drawing-Charcoal
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

This is a three-part course for adults, introducing them to the basics of portraiture using charcoal as a medium. The class will examine the basic proportions of the human face, the arrangement of the underlying structures, and the variations that occur at different ages. The students will work with charcoal on newsprint, both to explore working rapidly with tone and modeling of the face and to examine techniques for capturing the important details of face and features. There will be a series of exercises in which students pair off in rotation and sketch each other's portrait. Emphasis will be on capturing personality, general structure and proportions, not on precise photorealistic representation; students wishing to develop more precise technique will be provided with the background they need to allow them to work with confidence on their own or with other instructors.

On Paradoxes in Space-Time Models: Machian and anti-Machian Cosmologies from Einstein to Gödel Speaker: David E. Rowe (Mainz University) When: Friday March 4th, 1-2pm Where:  SCEN 206  Abstract: Einstein worried about space-time paradoxes almost from the moment he conceived of general relativity. In 1917 he tried to implement what he later called Mach’s Principle while launching relativistic cosmology. Almost immediately De Sitter countered Einstein’s model with an alternative, non-Machian universe. This lacked a cosmic time, however, raising difficulties for the chronology of events. These older issues came surging back in the 1940s when Gödel found the first anti-Machian models. In this talk I will draw a line connecting these various paradoxical ideas in order to show not only that they were embedded in Einstein’s theory from its inception but also how they resurfaced throughout the course of the last century.

4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Main Campus - (GEAR) G. David Gearhart Hall



Jewish Muslim Relations in France from WWI to the Present

Headlines from France suggest that Muslims have renewed an age-old struggle against Jews and that the two groups are once more inevitably at odds. But the past tells a different story. The Burdens of Brotherhood is a sweeping history of Jews and Muslims in France from World War I to the present. Here Ethan Katz introduces a richer and more complex world that offers fresh perspective for understanding the opportunities and challenges in France today.

About the author:
Ethan Katz was educated at Amherst College, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2002, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, from which he received his PhD in 2009.  He also studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  Currently, Katz is Assistant Professor of History and Affiliated Professor of Judaic Studies at the University of Cincinnati. He has penned articles in publications such as the Los Angeles Review of Books, The Jewish Review of Books, and the Cincinnati Enquirer and also speaks regularly in a range of community venues.

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Anyone who has been a regular customer at NWA Farmers Markets during the past 10 years has probably noticed a remarkable change--more vendors with “real” food and a lot of Asian-looking faces. Many are Hmong people, who orignally came to the US from Laos and Thailand as refugees beginning in the late 70s as part of the fallout from the US withdrawal from the Vietnam War. Now many have moved to Arkansas, but few Arkansans know who they are. Learn the incredible story of these remarkable people, who contribute  so much to the increasingly changing tapestry of  NW Arkansas.

OLLI: 1968: The Year that Rocked the World
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Nineteen sixty-eight was a year beset by revolutions that rocked the world. The Tet Offensive in Vietnam, student protests, and assassinations challenged American's self-confidence and cohesion in an election year that would facilitate the rise of the Right in U.S. politics. Paris, Beijing, Prague, and Mexico City witnessed their own revolutions and reactions as societies worldwide grappled with a youthful postwar generation and the social movements they led. In short, 1968 stands as one of the most critical years of the 20th century: it polarized American politics, set the United States on a course out of Vietnam, and precipitated actions that would help unmake the Soviet Union and end China's isolation from the world.

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

This is a three-part course for adults, introducing them to the basics of portraiture using charcoal as a medium. The class will examine the basic proportions of the human face, the arrangement of the underlying structures, and the variations that occur at different ages.

There will be a series of exercises in which students pair off in rotation and sketch each other's portrait. Emphasis will be on capturing personality, general structure and proportions, not on precise photorealistic representation; students wishing to develop more precise technique will be provided with the background they need to allow them to work with confidence on their own or with other instructors.

Why is Faulkner considered to be such an important American novelist? This course will examine the most famous of his great novels, The Sound and the Fury, in order to address that question.

Topics for discussion will include Faulkner’s use of multiple points of view, his modernist sense of time, the South, race, gender, and the complex family dynamics among the three Compson brothers—Benji, Quentin, Jason—and their sister Caddie. To facilitate discussion, participants should bring a copy of the novel, preferably the Vintage International edition, with them to class.

He began training as an astronaut in 1978, but had no intentions of becoming the first African-American in space. He was chosen to join the new space shuttle team along with 34 other participants. On August 30, 1983 he made history and completed his first NASA mission to space. After successfully completing that mission, he went on to complete multiple other trips, compiling 688 hours in space by the time he retired. Since retiring, Bluford has taken on leadership roles for Federal Data Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, and Aerospace Technologies Group. At this event, Bluford will share his ideas and expertise on topics including career opportunities and minorities in science and engineering. Don’t miss your chance to hear from a man who made NASA history on March 10 at the University of Arkansas!

SQL Querying: Advanced
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Course Description
 
In the course SQL Querying: Fundamentals, you learned the basics of SQL querying. Now that you have a foundation in how to query databases, you will learn in this course how to identify and use advanced querying techniques. In addition, you might find that you need to perform tasks such as modifying the structure of a table; inserting, updating, or deleting data; and indexing tables to optimize query performance. In this course, you will learn how to complete these tasks and more.

In today’s competitive environment, information is one of the most important factors in determining the success of an organization. If you are able to manage and retrieve information efficiently, you can streamline the organization’s processes and give it a competitive edge. As the organization grows, you will need to handle large amounts of data. Under such circumstances, you might need to query multiple tables simultaneously and with increasing frequency. You must step up the speed of generating query output to cope with the increasing demands of data storage, management, and retrieval.

M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition of Ashley L. Byers
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Main Campus - (FNAR) Fine Arts Center

Throughout her time in the University of Arkansas Master of Fine Arts program, Ashley L. Byers has been creating work about the folklore, landscape, and people of the Ozarks. Though she continues to create work with the Ozarks in mind, it becomes a motif used for a broader conversation about polarized paradigms in her thesis, Place(ment). The installation will include found objects, painting, drawing, sound, and sculpture that break down delineations between deceptively oppositional concepts such as truth/fiction, authenticity/inauthenticity, and inside/outside.

Vote to Support the 'Old Main Oath'
All Day

The Associated Student Government, in partnership with Resident's Interhall Congress, Student Alumni Board and Student Athlete Advisory Committee, propose the university's first campus creed, known as the "Old Main Oath." The Old Main Oath is an oath for all students, faculty and staff that captures the values, morals and spirit that we possess at the University of Arkansas. This was a platform initiative of the 2015-16 ASG executive officers intended to establish integrity, openness and general principles of civility by defining common values in our institution.

In the fall semester, a student-led committee was formed to draft an oath that encompasses what it means to be a Razorback. Members of this committee were ASG President Tanner Bone, ASG Graduate Student Congress Speaker Scout Johnson, ASG Director of Traditions Raygan Sylvester, ASG Senator Will Watkins, SAB Vice President of Sponsorship Blair Peterson, RIC President Russell Sharp, SAAC Representative Eric Janise, and ASG Vice-President, Morgan Farmer, who chaired the committee.

The ASG Senate and the Graduate Student Congress recommended the Old Main Oath for adoption, and students will have the opportunity to vote to formally adopt the Old Main Oath. Students can vote by logging on vote.uark.edu during the ASG general election, happening March 14-16. Download a full PDF version of the proposed creed.

"The Old Main Oath was written to truly encapsulate what it means it be a part of our campus community," said Morgan Farmer, vice president of ASG. "We began looking at the values of our campus and what makes us unique, we looked at a lot of other schools and their creeds or oaths, and then customized it to our campus. We hope that our students will embrace this new tradition and it will become a compass for current and future students."

The Associated Student Government at the University of Arkansas is a student-led organization that acts as an organized voice for all students and strives to effectively represent student interest. Questions about ASG can be directed to 479-575-5205, asg@uark.edu or asg.uark.edu.

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Explore the history of market hunting and lawlessness that characterized the early history of the Everglades by reading Peter Matthiessen’s classic story about that special place and time: Killing Mister Watson.   There’s even a local Arkansas connection here as Watson came to Florida as a fugitive from what had been Oklahoma Indian Territory.  After that we learn about the unique ecological system making south Florida such a special place today.  This includes a photographic tour of Everglades National Park.  But that’s just the beginning.  We also explore places like Jaynes Scenic Drive, Big Cypress National Preserve, and the magnificent fragment of virgin forest at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.  Hear about the perils of getting to the bottom of Everglades hydrology – one borehole at a time.   Learn about the successful recovery of the Florida panther from the very brink of extinction.   South Florida is a special place and this class will help you understand exactly why.

OLLI: French for Fun Encore
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Similar to last spring, French for Fun Encore will give students an opportunity to focus on conversational French with an emphasis on pronunciation and dialects. In addition to reviewing food, clothing, illnesses, shopping, and asking for directions, students will also be introduced to basic differences in sentence formation so that they can speak using complete sentences. However, student input will drive the focus of the lessons. In addition to handouts, students will be given the opportunity to listen to and view native speakers. Hopefully, students will leave the class feeling comfortable with their pronunciation of basic French communication which would enable them to successfully interact should they ever travel to a French-speaking nation.

M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition of Elena Volkova
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Main Campus - (FNAR) Fine Arts Center

Contemporary art is dedicated to the conversation between the past and the present, the established and the experimental; it becomes more and more transborder, as life itself. Nowadays, people live in the world, where their beliefs, ideas, politics, and religion are constantly colliding. The more people expand boundaries and develop connections, the more complex and tangled our society becomes as a system.

Within the course of the Master of Fine Arts program in the University of Arkansas, Elena Volkova has been working with the topics of structures within social relations and human nature. Being a representative of a small indigenous ethnic group, she has always been interested in the astonishing correlation between one’s ability to segregate from the others and, at the same time, the instinctive desire to belong to a group, which is indissolubly bounded with the idea of home and belonging. Elena investigates the complexity and fragmentation of human memory and perception through her personal multicultural experience. Her Thesis show FRAG(mentality) presents a set of mixed media pieces incorporating painting, weaving, embroidery and three-dimensional elements dedicated to these contradictions in the modern society.

9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Located about twenty miles southwest of Fayetteville, Cane Hill was the earliest white settlement in Washington County. The area was first settled in 1827 by a group of Cumberland Presbyterians from Crystal Hill, which is near Little Rock, and in 1829 was designated as Cane Hill Township. The Cane Hill Collegiate Institute was chartered in 1850 and was one of the earliest institutions of higher learning in Arkansas. Later called Cane Hill College, the institution closed its doors in 1891, but the building was used by the Cane Hill Consolidated School District until the mid-1950s. Today the rural community of Cane Hill contains several buildings constructed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as well as a cemetery and the ruins of an overshot wheel mill. This walking tour, led by Arkansas Historic Preservation Program historian Rachel Silva, will visit eleven National Register-listed properties at Cane Hill. Enjoy a boxed lunch at the end of the tour.

OLLI: 1968: The Year that Rocked the World
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Nineteen sixty-eight was a year beset by revolutions that rocked the world. The Tet Offensive in Vietnam, student protests, and assassinations challenged American's self-confidence and cohesion in an election year that would facilitate the rise of the Right in U.S. politics. Paris, Beijing, Prague, and Mexico City witnessed their own revolutions and reactions as societies worldwide grappled with a youthful postwar generation and the social movements they led. In short, 1968 stands as one of the most critical years of the 20th century: it polarized American politics, set the United States on a course out of Vietnam, and precipitated actions that would help unmake the Soviet Union and end China's isolation from the world.

OLLI: Introduction into Portrait Drawing-Charcoal
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

This is a three-part course for adults, introducing them to the basics of portraiture using charcoal as a medium. The class will examine the basic proportions of the human face, the arrangement of the underlying structures, and the variations that occur at different ages. The students will work with charcoal on newsprint, both to explore working rapidly with tone and modeling of the face and to examine techniques for capturing the important details of face and features. There will be a series of exercises in which students pair off in rotation and sketch each other's portrait. Emphasis will be on capturing personality, general structure and proportions, not on precise photorealistic representation; students wishing to develop more precise technique will be provided with the background they need to allow them to work with confidence on their own or with other instructors.

Why is Faulkner considered to be such an important American novelist? This course will examine the most famous of his great novels, The Sound and the Fury, in order to address that question.

To facilitate discussion, participants should bring a copy of the novel, preferably the Vintage International edition, with them to class. Paper and digital copies are widely available in stores and libraries.

OLLI: The First Boys of Spring
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

The First Boys of Spring is a one-hour documentary by filmmaker Larry Foley, narrated by Academy Award winning actor, Billy Bob Thorton. The film tells stories of baseball Hall of Famers who worked out, gambled, and partied in Hot Springs, including Cy Young, Satchel Paige, Honus Wagner, and baseball’s first superstar, Mike “King” Kelly. Beginning in 1886, baseball spring training was held for the first time, not in Florida or Arizona, but in the Arkansas resort town of Hot Springs, and that’s where the annual rite caught on. For parts of eight decades, many of the best who ever played the game, came to Hot Springs to shake off the rust from winters of sedentary indulgence to prepare for long seasons ahead, with such teams as the Red Sox, Dodgers, and Pirates—and the Negro League’s Monarchs, Crawfords, and Grays. A central figure is a young Babe Ruth, who belted a 573- foot home run into the Arkansas Alligator Farm in March of 1918 while trying to convince Boston Red Sox management to play him every day, even though he was already the game’s dominant pitcher.

Lunch will be provided.

Reception: M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition of Elena Volkova
5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Main Campus - (FNAR) Fine Arts Center

Contemporary art is dedicated to the conversation between the past and the present, the established and the experimental; it becomes more and more transborder, as life itself. Nowadays, people live in the world, where their beliefs, ideas, politics, and religion are constantly colliding. The more people expand boundaries and develop connections, the more complex and tangled our society becomes as a system.

Within the course of the Master of Fine Arts program in the University of Arkansas, Elena Volkova has been working with the topics of structures within social relations and human nature. Being a representative of a small indigenous ethnic group, she has always been interested in the astonishing correlation between one’s ability to segregate from the others and, at the same time, the instinctive desire to belong to a group, which is indissolubly bounded with the idea of home and belonging. Elena investigates the complexity and fragmentation of human memory and perception through her personal multicultural experience. Her Thesis show FRAG(mentality) presents a set of mixed media pieces incorporating painting, weaving, embroidery and three-dimensional elements dedicated to these contradictions in the modern society.

A reception will be held Friday, March 18 5:30-8:00 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery.

OLLI: French for Fun Encore
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Off Campus - Global Campus

Similar to last spring, French for Fun Encore will give students an opportunity to focus on conversational French with an emphasis on pronunciation and dialects. In addition to reviewing food, clothing, illnesses, shopping, and asking for directions, students will also be introduced to basic differences in sentence formation so that they can speak using complete sentences. However, student input will drive the focus of the lessons. In addition to handouts, students will be given the opportunity to listen to and view native speakers. Hopefully, students will leave the class feeling comfortable with their pronunciation of basic French communication which would enable them to successfully interact should they ever travel to a French-speaking nation.

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Bridge is a challenging game; each hand is an adventure. Bridge is a partnership game. When both partners are on the same wave length, the game becomes a pleasure, but when you think a bid means one thing and your partner thinks it’s something else, the result is seldom good. This class is aimed at the intermediate level player (definitely NOT for beginners). Emphasis will be on playing the hands rather than formal classroom instruction, understanding and applying the many conventions available to today’s bridge player and enjoying yourself.

OLLI: Edgy Religion-Unitarian Universalism
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Off Campus

Religion can be seen as an investment in rigid belief system(s), creeds and dogma, that guide morality and define a relationship with the unknown (God). Unitarian Universalism rejected creeds and dogma for a more reasoned, experiential and individually sourced framework of belief (theist and non-theistic) built around common Principles. We’ll look at the history, sources and present trajectory of the denomination in theology, philosophy and social justice lenses.
