Forum Aims to Make University More 'Bikeable'
The Rochester Cycling Alliance and the University's Center for Community Health are hosting a forum  to better understand the obstacles that keep faculty, staff, and students from biking to and from the University—as well as what improvements might make “active transportation” like biking and walking to campus more attractive. The 80-minute forum starts at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 15, in the Case Method Room (1-9576), Medical Center.

Entrepreneurship Expert on Radio Show Today
Bob Tobin, associate director of the University's Center for Entrepreneurship, will be a guest on The CEO Hour at noon today on WCEO-HQ Radio. He will discuss how to bootstrap your business. Listen online.

Video: Whipple Park Microfarm
In honor of Local Foods Week at the University, watch a video that shows off the microfarm started by undergraduates Caitlin Smigelski and Annalise Kjolhede as part of their KEY projects. Produce from the farm is sold to campus dining services.

Work Planned Near Hajim School Sign
On Monday, Nov. 15, the cap stone of the Hajim Engineering School sign along Hutchison Road will be replaced. A crane will be on site from 6 to 8 a.m. Flag persons will direct traffic on Hutchison Road and pedestrians in the area during this time period.

Second Friday Science Social: Vera Gorbunova
Vera Gorbunova, associate professor of biology and of oncology, will present "Of Naked Mole Rats and Squirrels: What Can the Long-LIved Rodents Teach Us About Cancer and Aging" at today's Second Friday Science Social.

The YellowJackets Head to ‘The Shore’ at Concert
The YellowJackets bring a bit of “Jersey Shore” style to the banks of the Genesee during their annual fall show, slated for Saturday, Nov. 13, at 8 p.m. in Strong Auditorium. The a cappella group will perform 10 numbers interspersed with videos that spoof the popular MTV television show. Additionally, the group will release its new album, Bad Bromance, at the concert.
