KNOW THIS campus news and announcements
Doh! Our spring theater production, Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play, written by Anne Washburn and directed by Sara Freeman ’95, opens Friday, Feb. 24, with shows through March 4. The experimental play follows the survivors of an apocalypse trying to cope with their new reality and rebuild society by turning to the one thing they have in common: The Simpsons. Admission is $11/$7, and tickets are available at tickets.pugetsound.edu
Nominations for student scholarships due Friday. Faculty nomination letters for three of Puget Sound's most prestigious scholarship programs for continuing students—the Lora Bryning Scholarship, Peter K. Wallerich Scholarship, and Fred S. Wyatt Scholarship—are due Friday, Feb. 24, to Student Financial Services. Please send your letter of nomination via email to bmgould@pugetsound.edu.  
Come play with us. As the students in our physical therapy program are learning about children and development, they need volunteers with whom to play. We need children with typical development to be part of our labs on Tuesday afternoons throughout the semester. If your kids would be interested in participating, learn more about specific dates, times, and descriptions of the labs.
