Career Fair returns: Professors, it’s time to remind your students about the upcoming Career & Internship Fair on Sept. 16. Students are asked to fill out the RSVP form on the Hegi Career Center website beforehand. A list of companies making an appearance at the fair can be found online. The fair takes place noon-4 p.m. in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom from, with lunch served one hour before at 11 a.m.
Opera, anybody? Anyone in the Dallas area feeling the need to brush up on their Baroque should consider attending a concert by the Dallas Bach Society at 2 p.m. Sept. 19 in Caruth Auditorium. The program includes French composer Rameau’s opera-ballet Zéphyre and J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5. This will mark the first North American production of Rameau’s piece, possibly because budget shortages made it impossible to produce during the French and Indian War – the era in which it was composed. Tickets are $15-40 each and are available online.
