Waynesburg Students Plan to Give Back Over Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving break is right around the corner, and 35 students from Waynesburg University will spend their time helping others both in the area and abroad. The group will participate in one of three service programs, scheduled through Centro Nutricional y Hogar de Ninos children’s home in Patzun, Guatemala; Habitat for Humanity in Greene County; and the Pittsburgh Project.

Members of the Waynesburg faculty and staff will supervise the students as they complete various tasks, ranging from fundraising to building new homes.

Seton Hill National Center for Holocaust Education Celebrates 25 Years
History and art buffs usually have at least one tie that binds: an appreciation for items that tell a story, like a painting of biblical proportions. Seton Hill University’s National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education celebrates its 25th anniversary with a two-part exhibit for the Ethel LeFrak Holocaust Education Conference. Experience a collection from royally renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson, including The Pentateuch and Psalms, as well as “Illuminations: The Art of Samuel Bak” with 20 original works from the Holocaust survivor.

Through Nov. 15, you can explore the exhibit at Seton Hill's Harlan Gallery. For more information or to schedule a docent tour, call 724/830-1071 or email brode@setonhill.edu.
Fun Fact: Bak will also receive an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree during the interfaith Kristallnacht Remembrance Service tonight at 6 p.m. in Seton Hill's Saint Joseph Chapel.

Carlow Hosts Author for a Discussion of Music and Culture

Enter a scene of unbridled youth intoxicated by blaring music and flashing lights — maybe in a field or abandoned building. Rave is the single word used to describe an entire culture scene, one that some may only know from movies and TV shows. But it is real, and it’s changing.

Tammy L. Anderson, associate professor in the University of Delaware’s Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice, is a sociologist and author of Rave Culture: The Alteration and Decline of a Philadelphia Music Scene. Join her Nov. 8 on Carlow University's campus as she discusses how the rave scene is becoming outdated and going mainstream; she'll cover topics like social influence on identity and more.

The university will host Anderson in its A.J. Palumbo Hall of Science and Technology Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. Call 412/578-6076
 or email ctoth@carlow.edu for more information.
