Hiring Students Begins for 2015-2016

Hiring student employees for the 2015-2016 academic year can now begin. Please review your job description, in particular verifying that the Start Date is September 8, 2015 or later and the End Date is May 6, 2016 or earlier. If a student does not pass validation because she does not have Work-Study, please attempt the hire again in two weeks or so. Although the majority of students have completed their financial aid applications, many still have not and they will not pass validation until they've received a financial aid award.

'Consciousness, Non-Self and Contemplative Art' by Andrew Olendzki, Wednesday, Aug. 5, 6 p.m., Seelye 201

Buddhist ideas are revolutionizing the fields of health care and mental health, mainly through the influence of mindfulness and meditation. Buddhist thought is also having a profound impact on the study of consciousness, and new fields such as contemplative sciences are emerging at the intersection of meditative experience and the traditional sciences. What about art? How are Buddhist ways of looking at the mind and human experience affecting how art is produced and understood? Join Andrew Olendzki, Ph.D., to explore these questions about Buddhist Influences on the New Art Movement.
