On Thursday, August 3rd, College of Science Dean, Cynthia Peterson, hosted a “lunch and learn" for emeritus and retired faculty. The event was held at the new LSU Foundation Center for Philanthropy on Nicholson Drive. The meeting was well-attended, with Chemistry proudly outnumbering the other departments. Over lunch, Dean Peterson introduced herself and shared the video of her TEDxLSU talk from earlier in the year titled “Science and All That Jazz”. She then gave some updates on the College, including the successful recruitment of several new faculty to the College. The event was the brainchild of the Dean’s Circle Executive Committee and further gatherings are planned into the future. Suggestions are welcome with regard to meeting format, speakers and venues.
