Researcher of the Week:
Cheli Arussy

She is a Chemical Engineering major and her research explores the microscopic world of Filamentous fungi. She hopes to hypothesize that hyphal branching is, in part, regulated by autophagy; a cellular-level recycling process that occurs in a wide range of species from fungi to humans.

New Student Book Experience Tab


Enriques Journey

The New Student Book selection has been made! Enrique's Journey by Pulitzer Prize winning author Sonia Nazario is our 2014-2015 selection. Enrique’s Journey recounts the unforgettable quest of a Honduran boy looking for his mother, eleven years after she is forced to leave her starving family to find work in the United States. Braving unimaginable peril, often clinging to the sides and tops of freight trains, Enrique travels through hostile worlds full of thugs, bandits, and corrupt cops. But he pushes forward, relying on his wit, courage, hope, and the kindness of strangers.

Join us and meet the author on September 23, 2014 in the UC Ballroom for a open discussion and book signing afterwards.
