Additional Details for Fall 2017 Gator Day

  • On Gator Day eve (Monday, October 23), Sigma Xi will host a guest lecture by Dr. Herman Sintin titled “Bacterial Conversation: What Is it and How Can it be Stopped to Prevent Infections From Spreading?” The lecture is at 7:00 p.m. in Quigley 101 and you can contact Brad Hersh with questions.

This promises to be a wonderful opportunity for our students. Please contact Shannon McConnell in the CPP with questions.
  • Most of the departmental and program open house events are scheduled from 1:30-2:45. Students are encouraged to wander from one open house to another so that they can learn more about the various majors and programs available at Allegheny. These events are not designed to require the student to stay put in one place for 75 minutes.
