Hey there Bobcats and welcome to Week 11! Fall semester is gearing up but this is a short work week because classes will not meet and most University offices will be closed on Friday for Veterans Day! There's still a lot going on - tons of art, interesting lectures, and even a festival with catering from Fluff!

Read on for some highlights and be sure to check out the official OHIO Calendar of University Events (CUE) for a full list:
