Andrew Casto - Van Zante visiting artist lecture + Studio Art juror for Annual Juried Student Exhibition
Join us for a very special Third Thursday this month as we join forces with the Martin Maca Lecture Council to present Catriona Hearn. Catriona is a licensed landscape architect and Master Gardener from Vancouver, BC, with a passion for horticulture, ecology and sustainable design. She has over 20 years’ experience and has worked on projects across North America. Her areas of expertise include feasibility studies, conceptual to detailed design, construction administration, public engagement and communications.
A discussion of how five diverse landscape architectural projects, each based on discovering the essence of the site, have been successful in connecting people to place and deepening our appreciation of the natural world. Canadian landscape architect and Master Gardener Catriona Hearn will discuss the process of finding what's "already there" on a site to inspire what could happen next.
Jackrabbit Previews are group programs designed for high school students and their families to explore SDSU and to meet other students who are considering us, too. The program is offered on most Fridays during the school year and Easter Monday.
You’ll learn about academic programs, student activities, financial aid, housing and other aspects of college life at State. The program also includes a campus tour as well as academic appointments with department representatives from your chosen field(s) of study.
Come find out ways we can promote interaction between our domestic students and international student population. Participants will leave with an understanding and direction of what it means to internationalize the campus community.
Presenter: Greg Wymer, Director of International Students & Scholars
Microlectures are short (6 minutes or less), instructor-produced videos that are designed using a structured format to provide effective explanations of a single key concept or specific skill set. Learn how to use this format to help maintain student attention and allow students to reengage with the content when and if needed.
State A Thon is the biggest student-led organization on campus. We raise money for our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, the Sanford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD. Our event will be a 12 hour Dance Marathon, where we invite children that are impacted by our fundraising to join in a celebration of their lives! We have games, food, two main acts, lots of dancing, and we reveal how much we raised in the last year!
