On December 8, 2009, the NCSU Libraries will launch a new lecture series to highlight the work of some the NC State’s most promising student scholars. The lectures will allow students, faculty and other members of the university community to step out of their own circle of daily work and to see and hear some of the best thinking, writing, and multimedia being done by undergraduate and graduate students across the campus. The Student All-Star lecturers will be chosen by students themselves, who will nominate colleagues that they recognize as inspirational.
Like the Fabulous Faculty series that showcases the most interesting and relevant works in progress by NC State professors and researchers, the Student All-Star lectures will be held about three to four times a semester in the Assembly Room at D. H. Hill Library and will be open to the public for free.
The inaugural talk will be given by Matt Robbins, the graduate student in the College of Design who initiated the campaign to put bells in the Bell Tower. Matt has become an authority on the largely forgotten changes to the architecture on campus. He will speak on “State College Then And Now: Saving the History of Our Buildings.”
Join us for the inaugural lecture of the Student All-Stars series on Tuesday, December 8, 2009 at 4:00 p.m., D. H. Hill Library, Assembly Room, (2nd Floor, East Wing). This event is free and open to the public.
