Faculty members to join African mission

“Something as simple as an old pair of glasses could make a real difference to the children of Ghana,” says physics professor Gordon Drake.

He and his wife, nursing professor Mary Louise Drake, are among 16 local members of the Rotary Club who will travel to the west African nation in November on a mission to build and supply a school. Besides the school supplies, the group is seeking to bring eyeglasses, sunglasses, and mosquito netting.

University Club to feature new menu for Monday opening

When the University Club opens for the school year on Monday, patrons will notice some changes, says president Mary Louise Drake, but one thing remains the same: it will continue to provide a campus respite for faculty members, staff and professional librarians.

“The club functions as a dining room catering to guests looking for a collegial atmosphere,” she says.

It serves lunch Monday to Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
