College plans fall events around Energy & Environment theme

fuller_alexandraWhile Marietta College is a few months into the year of Energy & Environment on campus, there are still some “must-see” events upcoming on the schedule.
The signature program for the fall is “An Evening with Alexandra Fuller,” at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 9, in the Alma McDonough Auditorium. This program is in conjunction with the Esbenshade Series.

Fuller is the author of The Legend of Colton H. Bryant, which is Marietta College’s 2011 Common Reading.
Fuller will speak on her work as a non-fiction author and the writing of the book. The Legend of Colton H. Bryant is an unforgettable true story of a boy who comes of age in the oil fields and open plains of Wyoming; a heartrending account of the human spirit that lays bare where it is that wisdom truly resides.
On Nov. 17, the Career Center is sponsoring a career panel related to jobs in the energy and environment fields. Hilles Hughes, Director of the Career Center, said she hopes to have five to eight different occupations represented. It is scheduled for 4 p.m. in Rickey 166.
The following day, Dr. Marshall Bartlett of Hollins College, will make a presentation on “Global climate change from ground up (and down),” during a Physics Colloquium in the Anderson Hancock Planetarium starting at noon.
Bartlett is also expected to participate in the career panel on Nov. 17.
The College is still planning some of the speakers and events for the spring semester.
