Students Meet Their Neighbors at Barbecue
More than 300 community members and Rochester students are expected to attend the second annual Community Barbecue, created to introduce undergraduates to community members from the Plymouth-Exchange and 19th Ward neighborhoods of southwest Rochester. This year's event takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 10, at Staybridge Suites, 1000 Genesee Street.

Photo Friday is Back
Photo Friday on the University's homepage will again feature photos submitted by University students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni. To participate, take a photo of a favorite campus scene or event (horizontal images work best) and send it in. Check the homepage every Friday and vote for your favorites.

Fire Extinguisher Guidelines Available
Environmental Health and Safety has posted guidelines for proper use of fire extinguishers. The office reminds employees that the only time a fire extinguisher should be used to fight a fire is when the fire department has been notified, there is a clear exit behind the person using the extinguisher, and the fire is small, self-contained, and not spreading rapidly. To schedule extinguisher training, call the Fire Marshal’s Office at 275-3243.

Symposium: 'Got Memory?'
The Schmitt Program on Integrative Brain Research announces its upcoming symposium "Got Memory? Neuroinflammation and Cognitive Dysfunction in Chronic Disease and Aging"  on Friday, Oct. 8, in the Class of '62 Auditorium at the Medical Center. Medical Center faculty and guest speakers from around the world will present research on the role of inflammatory processes on cognitive dysfunction and brain pathology throughout development and aging, as well as during disease states such as Alzheimer's disease and NeuroAIDS. Register online by Monday, Sept. 27. Contact for more information.
