SPECIAL NOTICES:

 

SOUL SPEAK: A GROUP FOR WOMEN OF COLOR: Did you know that approximately 12 million women in the United States experience depression each year? For women of color, specifically, depression can be complicated by issues relating to race and ethnicity. Soul Speak group sessions will take place from 12 - 1:30 p.m., in the Kiva Room, located on the 3rd floor of the Student Center. The dates are below:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 5
  • Tuesday, Nov. 12
  • Tuesday, Nov. 19
  • Tuesday, Dec. 3
  • Tuesday, Dec. 10

The environment for Soul Speak will provide a safe and supportive space to connect and discuss the unique experiences of being women of color while at EMU. You will learn more about yourself and be empowered. For questions, please contact Joi Rencher at 487-0899 or email jrencher@emich.edu.

 

"A VOTING THEORY APPROACH TO GOLF SCORING" - TOPIC FOR LECTURE: Please join the Mathematics Department for a talk by Michael Jones, associate editor of Mathematical Reviews, titled "A Voting Theory Approach to Golf Scoring."  The talk will be given Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m., in room 406, Pray-Harrold. PGA tournaments can be scored under stroke play or the modified Stableford scoring system; these two methods of scoring are equivalent to using voting vectors to tally an election. This equivalence will be discussed and data from the 2004 Masters and International Tournaments will be used to examine the effect of changing the scoring method on the results of the tournament. LBC approved. For additional information, please contact Stephanie Casey at scasey1@emich.edu.
