There are several things planned for today at Lower Columbia College. The 2015 Career and Networking Fair will run from 10 am until 2 pm in the Student Center. You’ll have a chance to meet with employers and community organizations, explore current job openings, develop professional networks and practice interviewing skills. More than 20 organizations have signed up, and there will be an array of services for people who are looking for jobs. Attendees will also receive a raffle ticket, with a chance to win one of several prizes that are being given away. The Career and Networking Fair is free and open to all.
The Spring Quarter Community Conversation Lectures continues today, with Language and Literature Instructor Nicole DiGerlando presenting “From Paddy-Wagons to Pride: Defining Images of Queer Culture.” The free lecture starts at noon in the Wollenberg Auditorium at the Rose Center.
The annual William Vest Memorial Lecture is planned for this evening, starting at 7 pm. Washington State University Anthropology professor John Bodley is the featured speaker. Through his studies and research, Bodley has been involved in a study of the “Imperial and Commercial system,” a model that he says it “unsustainable.” Bodley says that the ultimate demise of our current society can be avoided by adopting a “small nation global future,” ideas that are intended to provoke thoughts and discussion. The Vest Memorial Lecture is free and open to anyone interested, starting at 7 pm in the Wollenberg Auditorium.
