11:30 am - 12:30 pm    Finding Your Place in the Aggie Family: Freshman drop-in group

Meeting / Retention & First Year Experience

This is a weekly drop-in group for students who find it unexpectedly challenging to adjust to their new life at USU. Homesickness is common and it can be tough to feel like you have made meaningful connections at USU. Balancing school, friends, and work can be hard. Making new friends in a new environment may be more difficult than you anticipated. It may not feel like you fit into the Aggie Family. These struggles are very common. In this group, you will meet other students who are facing similar challenges. It will be a confidential and judgment-free place to provide mutual support, exchange ideas, and connect with each other. Bring your own lunch to the meeting so we can eat while we talk.

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm    Honors 42nd Annual Last Lecture

Lecture & Readings / Honors

Initiated in 1976, the Last Lecture has become an important Honors Program student tradition at Utah State University. Honors students have the opportunity to nominate an outstanding professor who has made a noteworthy contribution to the education and mentorship of undergraduates, both inside and outside of the classroom. A committee of honors students selects the winner each year, giving one exceptional professor the opportunity to speak to students as if it were his or her final lecture at USU. This year, Dr. Brian McCuskey will present “Alice vs. Sherlock,” staging an intellectual smackdown between these two literary celebrities. The dreamer and the detective: who knows best how to look at and think about the world? The lecture tells the story of Alice and Sherlock going viral, following them from Victorian England to the present day, from the original stories to screen adaptations to internet memes.

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

The Bergers, a three-generation Jewish family living in a crowded Bronx apartment, experience a life where their dreams and frustrations collide, magnified by the pressures of the Depression.
