Patrice Prusko from Academic Technologies and colleagues at the University of Buffalo are organizing a series of monthly lunchtime online discussions as part of the Women in STEM Cooperative, on the theme of "The Next 10 Years: Helping STEM Students Thrive." Each discussion is free and held between 12:00-1:30 pm Eastern time.

The Big Red Barn just had its new wood pellet stove installed last week. Unfortunately, the weather has been too warm to put it on since we’ve had it operational. But we are sure that the Ithaca weather will turn cold again before spring arrives.

The stove looks so nice and is a great addition to the Barn. This was all made possible by donations from our Crowdfunding Project in November!

Thank you to all of our alumni, staff, and student supporters!
