Presented by Tiffany R. Smith

Wednesday, April 10
Time: 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Location: 314 BTSU

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." (Winston Churchill). Many times we may believe that a failure at a certain goal is the end.

Through this workshop we will examine failure and how it can give us a clearer focus for our purpose in life. We will also discuss how to find success through our failures by doing so with integrity.

Female Veterans on the Web
Friday, April 5, 1-2:30 p.m.
CyberFeminist Digital Ethos:Female Veterans on the Web
107 Hanna Hall
Mariana Grohowski,Rhetoric & Writing

Media coverage of female veterans and servicewomen in the U.S. Armed Forces is dominated by discouraging statistics. Although female veterans often are portrayed by the media as victimized and agentless,research on digital practices of female veterans shows that they possess greater agency than popular stereotypes give them credit for.

The presenter will share her research about female veterans' use of wireless communication technologies to connect with others for outreach, activist, and informative purposes. She will discuss female veterans' "digital ethos," which fosters positive social change on veteran's issues. Via a cyberfeminist methodology, Grohowski will argue that research in the area of female veteran's digital ethos is needed to more accurately understand how to meet the demands of this emerging population in society and in higher education.

International Film Series
The Gish Film Theater presents:

Faust (2011)
Russia, 134 min
Director: Alexander Sokurov
Thursday, April 4, 7:30 p.m.

The winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 2011, Sokurov's interpretation of the myth is not an adaptation in the usual sense, but what he describes as a "reading of what remains between the lines." Here Faust is a thinker, a mouthpiece for ideas, a transmitter for words, a schemer and a daydreamer. He is an anonymous man driven by simple instincts: hunger, greed and lust. Sokurov asks us to question how this literary character informs our understanding of the real tyrants who abused their position of power, and how an unhappy life can lead some to be seduced by monstrous ideologies.

The Gish Film Theater is located on the first floor of Hanna Hall. The film is free and open to the public.

Holocaust Remembrance Day event
In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day which takes place this Sunday, April 7, Hillel at BGSU will be doing a special showing of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. The showing will take place at 7 p.m. in 315 BTSU.

Campus Conservation Nationals
Campus Conservation Nationals is under way and goes until April 15. It's a national contest in which schools compete to see who can lower their energy use by the most. Last year BGSU placed 1st nationally and won interactive energy dashboard systems for some of the residence halls. This year we are competing for the same goal as well as an extra event: the Falcon-Rocket Smackdown. This year we are challenging the University of Toledo to see who can reduce energy use by the most and claim the bragging rights.

So reduce your energy use in residence halls by unplugging unused electronics, taking the stairs instead of the elevators, turning off lights when they are not needed and much more.

If you have questions or suggestion, just contact the Office of Campus Sustainability at 419-372-9949 or greenbg@bgsu.edu or like BGSU Sustainability on Facebook to see daily tips. Thanks for your support!
