Terrific opportunities today at every corner of campus (and downtown) to enjoy and engage, learn and discover.

The Creative Writing Program presents a reading by Ira Sukrungruang, author of the memoirs Southside Buddhist and Talk Thai: The Adventures of Buddhist Boy, the essay collection Buddha’s Dog and Other Meditations. Tonight at 7 p.m., at Cine, free and open to the public.

At 7:30 p.m. in MLC 101, the Institute for Women's Studies presents a screening of the documentary filmThe Hunting Ground, followed by a panel discussion featuring Tayler Simon and Caron Hope from UGA's University Health Center Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention team, Sally Sheppard from The Cottage Sexual Assault Center & Children's Advocacy Center and Josie Leimbach from the Institute for Women's Studies.

The Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library hosts the ongoing exhibition War of Words: Propaganda of World War I, featuring war propaganda from 1914-1918 in many different forms, including posters, pamphlets and leaflets, magazine articles and advertisements, short films and speeches, and door-to-door campaigning. Drop by the Russell Special Collections Library anytime from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

And of course don't forget the Study Away Fair we are hosting today at Herty Field from noon to 3 p.m. Students should come by, grab a snack and make plans for study abroad or one of our many domestic field study programs.

The richness of campus, today and everyday.
