Engineering student teams the Wongbacks and the Easy Riders took advantage of the lingering warm fall weather to kick up some dust in a game of flagball on lower campus. We at the Reporter are sure they were sporting if not civil.

Students from the University's Department of Integrated Studies in Education used coloured sidewalk chalk to draw a timeline chronicling the history of Earth and its living things October 1. The activity was organized by PhD student and instructor Jason Wiles, along with Alex Sheftel, a PhD student in Physiology, as part of a course called Elementary School Science. Wiles hoped that this would give students a better perspective and understanding of the Earth's timeline and natural history. He says, perhaps the most stunning feature of the timeline is the way in which it depicts just how little time human history spans in comparison to the rest of geologic time. Here Luisa Di Criscio, U2 Elementary Education, puts final touches on a prehistoric shark.
