Healthy Communities Film: "With My Own Two Wheels"

Can a simple 19th century technology change the world? For most North Americans, a bicycle ride or commute is a lifestyle choice. For countless others across the globe, each pedal stroke is progress out of poverty, toward an education and over the mountains of social and cultural discrimination.

"With My Own Two Wheels" profiles the lives of five people and portrays the powerful difference a bicycle has made for each of them and their communities. The film can be used to better understand their life circumstances, the power of an "appropriate" human-scale technology in an increasingly hi-tech world and to inspire discussion on how we can each contribute to improving the lives of people around the world, even in simple ways.

Out of the Darkness Walk

The Out of the Darkness Walk will increase awareness about depression and suicide. Funds raised will support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s research efforts and educational programs. The three mile walk will bring together people who have lost loved ones to suicide or know someone struggling with depression.

The Hit Men

The 60's, 70's and 80's were a golden era for songwriting, and during that period iconic hits such as "Big Girls Don't Cry" were born. See the men behind the sound of The Four Seasons and more live on stage!

Observatory Show

View the evening sky from the UNI observatory located on the roof of McCollum Science Hall. Meet near the polar bear outside of room 137 before 9 p.m. to be escorted to the roof. The event goes forward regardless of the weather.

Begeman Lecture Series

Dr. Timothy Gay, Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will present a lecture titled "Why Isn't God Ambidextrous?" Gay will discuss the idea of nature being "handed," and apply that handedness concept to agriculture, biology, chemistry and physics. He will also discuss new physics experiments on chirality that may reveal how life began on Earth. 

Dr. Gay is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He is as well known for his groundbreaking research on atomic collisions and polarized electrons as he is for his entertaining expositions on the physics of football.
