Pay it forward: SMU’s Central University Libraries continue the 2008 Food for Fines drive through Dec. 15. Every donation of a can or package of non-perishable food for the North Texas Food Bank equals a $2 credit toward outstanding library fines for SMU faculty, staff and students. The waiver applies to materials from Fondren Library Center, Hamon Arts Library, and the ISEM Reading Room – drop off food donations at any of these libraries.
Celebrate the season: SMU President R. Gerald Turner hosts the 2008 All-University Holiday Party at 3:30-5 p.m. Dec. 18 in the Umphrey Lee Ballroom.
