Centre Expo Prizes Awarded!
Laura Brown won a 22” LCD TV at the Expo. Congratulations, Laura, and thank you to everyone who came by the CTL booth and signed up!
The student winners of the free ride from Sharon’s Car Service in the EXPO drawing are Henok Tensae and Kathryn Cremer. All you need to do is call Sharon at 859-583-2093 when you want your ride. She’s a 24-hour car service licensed by the KY Department of Transportation and is a good friend to Centre students. Her local rates are very reasonable, and she can also make trips to Lexington (in particular to the airport) and Harrodsburg as well. I highly recommend her service. Drive safely and do not drink and drive!

Don't miss the football game this saturday at 7:30 p.m.!Wednesday, Sept. 15. The Physics Film Series presents the 50-minute film The Ghost Particle. The documentary probes the secret ingredient of the cosmos: swarms of invisible particles that fill every cubic inch of space and just may explain how the universe was created. Trillions of ghostly neutrinos move through our bodies every second without us noticing a thing. Yet without them, the sun wouldn't shine and the elements that make up our world wouldn't exist. This program explores the 70-year struggle so far to understand the most elusive of all elementary particles, the neutrino. All are welcome to view this film with us. Refreshments are served at 4 p.m., and the film starts at 4:10 in Olin 124. Click here for the current schedule of colloquia and films.

Play on Wednesday, Sept. 15 in Olin 124.Be sure to mark your calendar for these upcoming DramaCentre Productions (held in Weisiger Theatre):
CONVO: The Ugly One. Sept. 15 and 16 at 8 p.m., Sept. 17 at 6 p.m., Sept. 18 at 8 p.m. Described as a scintillating absurdist comedy about beauty, identity, and getting ahead in life, The Ugly One was written by Marius von Mayenburg, a German playwright and translator. His previous plays include Parasites, The Cold Child, and Fireface, which premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2000. In the play, main character Lette thinks he is normal. When the extent of his ugliness is revealed he turns to a plastic surgeon for help. But after the bandages come off, Lette soon learns that there is such a thing as too beautiful. Mayenburg's 60-minute play squarely hits any number of targets: our society's obsession with external beauty, the brutality of capitalism, and the danger of treating defining organs like mechanical parts. Directed by Rowen Haigh, Danville native and daughter of Centre drama professor Tony Haigh. Rowen is a professional director living and working in the Philadelphia theatre community.
