iCUE Spotlight: February 23-March 1, 2017

What's in the CUE this week at Ohio U.


It's hard to believe we're halfway through the semester, but midterms are upon us and everything is kicking into high gear! This can be an overwhelming time in the semester, and it's easy to feel like you're drowning in a never-ending to-do list. But don't forget to take time out to treat yourself and indulge in a few extra non-obligatory activities to enrich your days! There's something for everyone on the CUE, so check it out by going to calendar.ohio.edu. And remember, anyone with an OHIO ID can add events that are happening on all OHIO campuses.

Here are a few highlights from the week ahead:

Faculty Pageant (Monday, Feb. 27, 6-8:00 p.m., Baker University Center Ballroom): Alpha Phi Omega is proud to present this pageant featuring our very own OHIO faculty members as the contestants! Live musical entertainment will also be provided by some of our on-campus a capella groups. The pageant is open to the public and tickets are $5 per person. All proceeds will go to Camp Quality, a summer camp and year-round support program for children with cancer. Don't miss out on this opportunity to support a great cause and see your instructors or colleagues strut their stuff!

Fat Tuesday with UPC (Tuesday, Feb. 28, 12-2:00 p.m., Baker University Center): There's no better way to give your brain a break than by indulging in Fat Tuesday, the original "treat yourself" holiday! We may not be in New Orleans, but you can still get a little taste of Mardi Gras on the fifth floor of Baker Center with food, games, raffles, beads, make your own masks, and more!

Micro-aggression and University Values: A Kitchen Table Conversation (Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2:00-3:30 p.m., Class of 1951 Lounge, Alden Library fourth floor): What are micro-aggressions? Subtle words or attitudes toward minority groups that reinforce stereotyping and while they sound harmless, they can do a lot of damage. The University Libraries’ Inclusion and Diversity Committee is sponsoring this “kitchen table discussion” (informal, highly participatory panel with with Ohio University leaders Shari Clarke, Jason Pina, and Sara Trower) to build awareness and to talk about the climate on campus. Everyone is welcome!

Bobcat Unity Walk (Tuesday, Feb.28, 4:00-5:00 p.m., beginning at Wolfe Garden on the College Green): There are innumerable wonderful qualities about OHIO, but one of the best is our diversity and our sense of community amongst the Bobcat family. This walk, which begins at Wolfe Garden between Alden Library and Cutler Hall, will celebrate both those things. In a tumultuous time both at home and in the world at large, come out and be reminded that kindness and friendly faces can still be found everywhere you go!

YouTube Live: Diversity and Inclusion (Feb. 28, 3-4:00 p.m., online event): All you need to attend this event is a computer and an internet connection! This unique event will feature a YouTube live session held by the Google University Programs team, and you can tune in from anywhere, any time between 3 and 4:00. It's just like watching a YouTube video except the Google team will be broadcasting about diversity and inclusion live from their office. When you join the live video stream, you can even chat and ask them questions in real time!


#CUEtip: To describe your event, use the default summary option the CUE presents below the title. You have 250 characters to give the most essential information to readers (text only). It's always a good idea to check the box that says "add a full description," which gives you up to 100,000 characters and allows you to include links and apply formatti to talk about your event. And remember, the 250-character summary and the full description never appear together, so duplication is your friend.
