Brain Awareness Week 2019
Last week’s 16th annual Brain Awareness Week and seventh annual Robert B. Glassman Memorial Brain, Mind, and Behavior Symposium engaged students, faculty, staff, and the community in a robust week of events. Noted experts in their fields drew large crowds to campus for a series of enlightening talks, Monday–Wednesday. The Glassman Symposium on Thursday featured the most-ever posters of original research by students and alumni as well as the unveiling of interdisciplinary Mind-Machine Interface sculptures created by art students.
Thank you for an amazing Family Weekend! Nearly 200 family members came to campus for the Forester immersion experience. Enjoy these photos taken from the event.
Last week, a variety of events on campus brought the college and community together to celebrate and discuss the legacy of Civil Rights leader and activist Martin Luther King Jr. The week kicked off with a lecture from keynote speaker Shaun King and concluded with the third annual Diversity and Inclusion Summit at Lake Forest College.
First-year students in the BIOL130 Deadly Shapes, Hostage Brains class hosted third graders from Lake Forest Country Day School for the Amazing Brain community outreach program on December 18, 2019. This group- and class-led collaboration serves as a non-traditional final exam that teaches students to engage in active learning approaches that underlie how the brain senses the world, integrates that information, and, ultimately, carries out actions. Over the past 12 years, the College has served more than 500 local schoolchildren through this program.
