New Student Orientation
Orientation session for new undergraduate students
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM EnvironMentors Information Meeting
EnvironMentors is a national environment-based mentoring program developed by the National Council for Science and Environment (NCSE). The program provides high school students the opportunity to work with researchers and professionals to develop scientifically rigorous research projects. The program also promotes future studies and careers in environmental science fields. West Virginia University was selected in May 2011 as the newest of 13 university chapters distributed across the US.

For the 2011-12 academic year, mentors from WVU will be working with students from Morgantown High School and Preston County High School. The WVU chapter is currently looking for mentors for its first cohort of high school students. The chapter’s hope is for the bulk of the mentoring to be conducted by WVU graduate students representing the university’s broad range of environmental studies programs. Advanced undergraduate students would also be eligible to serve as mentors. To facilitate recruitment of mentors, WVU’s Environmental Research Center has established a one-credit-hour special topics course for the Fall 2011 semester. A 400-level equivalent for undergrads also exists.

For all faculty and graduate students interested in participating this year, the Environmental Research Center will host an informational meeting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, August 17, in the Percival Hall Lobby on WVU’s Evansdale Campus.

12:00 PM - 9:30 PM "The John Henry Works" by Nyame Brown
The John Henry series by Nyame Brown was influenced by remembrances of the artist's father's bedtime stories. Through the series the figure of John Henry has evolved in the work and Brown has updated the figure with aspects of contemporary African American society, comic books, and science fiction, bringing the hero that beat the machine into the 21st century.

Nyame Brown holds an MFA in painting and printmaking from Yale University and a BFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. For more information, including images from "The John Henry Works," see: www.nyamebrown.com.

"The John Henry Works" will be open Sept. 1 - Oct. 6. All Mesaros Galleries exhibitions, lectures and receptions are free and open to the public.

12:00 PM - 9:30 PM Sculpture by Thaddeus Mosley
Thaddeus Mosley is one of Pittsburgh's top artists and has been for quite a few years. His carefully constructed abstract wood sculptures show influences of masters Brancusi and Noguchi, but with a heathy dose of funkiness. The sculptures all exhibit a balance between the geometric, organic forms and traditional utilitarian work.

1:00 PM - 5:00 PM Peach State Chapter - WVU vs. Norfolk State Game Watch

I hope everyone enjoyed the Mountaineers opening game victory last week, despite the weather issues. If you were at Laseter's, I trust that you got a sense of why it is the best place to watch Mountaineer football, other than Mountaineer field. Thanks to everyone for the huge turnout.

Let's turn our attention to this week's game, Norfolk State. Kickoff is 1:00PM and we look forward to seeing everyone at Laseter's. This, as well as all the remaining games will be shown at Laseter's.

 

A couple reminders of upcoming specials. For all games, buy a WVU Peach beer glass , for $10, and all your domestic draft beers will be $2.50, versus $3.60 normally. As a heads up, watch for Laseter's food specials, including next week's big tilt against Maryland, where we most likely will have specials on crab cakes and soft shell crab.

 

For those of you who look for our Evites, we are attempting to get away from those, due to the complexities of sending multiple evites, based on our large number of e-mail addresses. Alison does a  great job of communicating through Facebook, and I will attempt to get more consistent with twitter, so check out WVU Peach on both counts for regular updates.

Let's Go Mountaineers!

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM Blue Ridge Mountaineers - WVU vs. Maryland Game Watch
Kickoff is @ Noon. Come out and join your fellow Mountaineers for a tough match-up against the Terps at All Sports Cafe in Roanoke, VA.

Chappy's Take:

The Mountaineers hit the road for the first away game of the season to take on the Maryland Terrapins at College Park. WVU is a small road 'dog' in this one but the story line is pretty simple: West Virginia MUST run the ball. Maryland is not Norfolk State and have plenty of DB's to stack the backfield to play an entire game. The Terps have always had size and now they may also have some speed. This will be interesting as it will tell us a lot by late Saturday afternoon.

Let's Gooooo Mountaineers!!!

    12:00 PM - 9:30 PM "The John Henry Works" by Nyame Brown
    The John Henry series by Nyame Brown was influenced by remembrances of the artist's father's bedtime stories. Through the series the figure of John Henry has evolved in the work and Brown has updated the figure with aspects of contemporary African American society, comic books, and science fiction, bringing the hero that beat the machine into the 21st century.

    Nyame Brown holds an MFA in painting and printmaking from Yale University and a BFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. For more information, including images from "The John Henry Works," see: www.nyamebrown.com.

    "The John Henry Works" will be open Sept. 1 - Oct. 6. All Mesaros Galleries exhibitions, lectures and receptions are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday-Saturday, from noon to 9:30 p.m. The Galleries are closed Sundays and on University holidays. For more information, call Curator Robert Bridges at 304-293-2312.
    12:00 PM - 9:30 PM Sculpture by Thaddeus Mosley
    Thaddeus Mosley is one of Pittsburgh's top artists and has been for quite a few years. His carefully constructed abstract wood sculptures show influences of masters Brancusi and Noguchi, but with a heathy dose of funkiness. The sculptures all exhibit a balance between the geometric, organic forms and traditional utilitarian work.

    What a setting we have this weekend! Brent Musburger is in town again!

    I am writing to let everyone know that we will be in Morgantown for the game, so Tony Angelleli has very graciously offered to host a game watch at his home this Saturday. If you've never experienced a game watch at Tony's, I highly recommend it. It gets louder than Mountaineer field sometimes : ) His Address is 12441 Early Rd. Knoxville, TN. so, if you can 't find a place to watch the game with fellow mountaineer fans/alumni head on over to Tony's, bring some beer andwhatever you like to eat.. and have a great time! Tony's cell is 216.8087 if you get lost or need help finding it. I will try and take pictures of the game day set, and of the man trip and all the festivities this weekend. Should be a GREAT atmosphere.

    The John Henry series by Nyame Brown was influenced by remembrances of the artist's father's bedtime stories. Through the series the figure of John Henry has evolved in the work and Brown has updated the figure with aspects of contemporary African American society, comic books, and science fiction, bringing the hero that beat the machine into the 21st century.

    Nyame Brown holds an MFA in painting and printmaking from Yale University and a BFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. For more information, including images from "The John Henry Works," see: www.nyamebrown.com.

    The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer prize for general nonfiction Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD Monday, September 26, 2011 Creative Arts Center – Lyell B. Clay Theatre 7:30pm lecture, book signing and reception to follow Cosponsored by the Laurence and Jean DeLynn Lecture Series Siddhartha Mukherjee is a cancer physician and researcher. He is an assistant professor of medicine at Columbia University and a staff cancer physician at Columbia University Medical Center. A Rhodes scholar, he graduated from Stanford University, University of Oxford, Harvard Medical School. He has published articles in Nature, The New England Journal of Medicine, The New York Times, and The New Republic. He lives in New York with his wife and daughters. His book, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, won the 2011 Pulitzer prize for general nonfiction. The Emperor of All Maladies is a magnificent, profoundly humane “biography” of cancer—from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the twentieth century to cure, control, and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence. Physician, researcher, and award-winning science writer, Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective, and a biographer’s passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived with—and perished from—for more than five thousand years. Book review by The New Yorker “It’s hard to think of many books for a general audience that have rendered any area of modern science and technology with such intelligence, accessibility, and compassion. The Emperor of All Maladies is an extraordinary achievement.” “Arrangements for the appearance of “Siddhartha Mukherjee” made through Greater Talent Network, Inc., New York, NY.” http://festivalofideas.wvu.edu

    12:00 PM - 9:30 PM "The John Henry Works" by Nyame Brown
    The John Henry series by Nyame Brown was influenced by remembrances of the artist's father's bedtime stories. Through the series the figure of John Henry has evolved in the work and Brown has updated the figure with aspects of contemporary African American society, comic books, and science fiction, bringing the hero that beat the machine into the 21st century.

    Nyame Brown holds an MFA in painting and printmaking from Yale University and a BFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. For more information, including images from "The John Henry Works," see: www.nyamebrown.com.

    12:00 PM - 9:30 PM Sculpture by Thaddeus Mosley
    Thaddeus Mosley is one of Pittsburgh's top artists and has been for quite a few years. His carefully constructed abstract wood sculptures show influences of masters Brancusi and Noguchi, but with a heathy dose of funkiness. The sculptures all exhibit a balance between the geometric, organic forms and traditional utilitarian work.

    "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller
    This American classic drama pits an individual’s soul against a monstrous political and religious "witch hunt." John Proctor has been unfaithful to his wife, and retribution for all slights runs rampant. Will he have the courage to face his past and the power of the court? Written during the anti-Communist hysteria of the 1950s, "The Crucible" illustrates perfectly Miller’s ideas of the tragedy of a common man—where the individual must reconcile his actions with the world at large.

    "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller
    This American classic drama pits an individual’s soul against a monstrous political and religious "witch hunt." John Proctor has been unfaithful to his wife, and retribution for all slights runs rampant. Will he have the courage to face his past and the power of the court? Written during the anti-Communist hysteria of the 1950s, "The Crucible" illustrates perfectly Miller’s ideas of the tragedy of a common man—where the individual must reconcile his actions with the world at large.

    "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller
    This American classic drama pits an individual’s soul against a monstrous political and religious "witch hunt." John Proctor has been unfaithful to his wife, and retribution for all slights runs rampant. Will he have the courage to face his past and the power of the court? Written during the anti-Communist hysteria of the 1950s, "The Crucible" illustrates perfectly Miller’s ideas of the tragedy of a common man—where the individual must reconcile his actions with the world at large.

    West Virginia University’s Appalachian Hardwood Center will offer a six-day Certified Logger Training Program beginning Monday, Oct. 24, and running weekdays through Monday, Oct. 31. “The logging workforce is undergoing a transformation and requires new well-trained people to provide raw materials to help traditional forest products industries and help new green energy facilities to grow and prosper,” said Ben Spong, a WVU Extension Specialist with the AHC and one of the event’s organizers. This Certified Logger Training Program provides an excellent introduction, including basic logging skills training and the required training for certification by the state. “With this training and certification, you will be well positioned to start a career as a logging professional,” Spong said, recommending the training for anyone who is “underemployed, a private forest landowner, a student and most anyone else interested in the field of logging.” For more details, please visit http://wvutoday.wvu.edu/n/2011/10/05/wvu-to-host-free-certified-logger-training.

    3:30 PM - 8:30 PM North Coast Cleveland Chapter Clam Bake
    Last year we decided to join forces with the Woods and Waters Club of Northern Ohio and join in on their Clam Bake.  This basically allowed us to enjoy a NICE clambake without any of the work! 

    This year, the Woods and Waters Club has again invited us to join in on their activity.  Since a number of the NCC members are also W&W members, we blend right in.  But, for those worried about finding someone you know, a section will be reserved for NCC attendees.  The caterer and the food were excellent last year. 

    We will be able to tour the new Willoway Nursery facility which is “state of the art”!  The bad news (for some) is that the location will be somewhat further west, in the Huron area. But, if you like Clambakes, this is the one to go to!

    Only 3 more regular season games!A victory against CINCY will get the Mountaineers back in Big East Confernce race. I predict a victory.  It won't be easy.  Everyone must think positive.

    Great turnout for all the games so far - let's keep it going. 

    Chapter Membership is stuck at 70. We need 30 more to make our goal. Forms and instructions on our website.

    I believe the game is a Game Plan Pay for View. ABC network viewing only in Northeast? Everyone should say a prayer for Penn State, Joe Pa, and the victims. Very sad situation.   

    Get to Beef's for the game. 50% off kids meals.
