Here’s a few upcoming shifts that probably need an explanation as to what they are!
Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible (March 22nd)
First up is Wednesday March 22nd. You may be asking yourself, “what is Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible?” This event is presented by Notre Dame’s Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (also known as JINA). It is a one women show performed by actress Anita Zieher. She will be giving monologues as each of the famous women in the title: Marie Curie, Lise Meitner, and Hedy Lamarr. Here is the synopsis:
“Three outstanding pioneers represent the achievements of women in the field of science and technology: the double Nobel Prize winner and discoverer of radioactivity Marie Curie (1867–1934), the Austrian-Swedish nuclear physicist Lise Meitner (1878–1968), and the Viennese Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr (1914–2000) with the invention of frequency hopping.
Incidents of their lives, achievements, and impediments as well as the contents of their research and the passion for their work are in the center of the play “Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible”, produced by the Viennese association PortraitTheater. Illustrated with music and videos, the 95-minute performance shows entertaining portraits of extraordinary women in history.
The successful theater performance, directed by Sandra Schűddekopf, with Anita Zieher impersonating the three women, had already been invited to Belgium, Germany, Iran, Poland, Switzerland (CERN), and Romania.”
Yield Events for Admitted Students (March 26th, April 2nd, April 9th, April 23rd)
Next up are the Yield Events! You’ll notice that we have a Yield Event at the end of March and a bunch more in April. For these four weekends the University has invited students that have been accepted to the incoming Freshman class, but who have not yet committed. Part of their weekend is a presentation in the Leighton. Hopefully through the presentation and DPAC’s exceptional customer service all of these undecided students will realize Notre Dame is the place for them! Sounds good, right! So please, ushers working these days, know that the majority of these guests will have never been in our building before and that we, as always, represent the University in the best possible way! Thanks!
