The Lloyd International Honors College “Food for Thought” events will be offered every 2nd and 4th Wednesday this semester. All members of the UNCG community are invited to gather for a light lunch and conversation at the Honors College’s Food for Thought series. These lively discussions on various topics are in the North Spencer Parlor.

Today (Aug. 28), honors students Shamira M. Azlan and Eun-Ju Seo will lead the discussion “Getting to Know Oxfam America at UNCG.”

In September:
Sept. 11 Mark Schumacher (Jackson Library) – “Athletics at UNCG”
Sept. 25 Dr. Omar Ali (African American Studies) – “Black Colonial Latin America: San Martin de Porres and the Afro-Peruvian Community”

Future speakers will include Joseph Erba (Management), Elizabeth Keathley (Music & WGS) and Rebecca Muich (LIHC).

Events are on the LIHC calendar here.

Additionally, the Honors College has something new this year, just for students: a new program series called “Pizza with the Profs.” It is a monthly event for students to explore a particular discipline with faculty in a more relaxed setting and have a little pizza too. Dr. Tara Green and African American Studies will host in October and Dr. Emily Levine and History will host in November.
