Summer is coming to a close and UVa students are returning to Grounds…this means More Than the Score Pre-Game Lecture Series is just around the corner!
We are excited to announce our fall season of More Than the Score. There will be six great lectures this fall–a topic for everyone.
The season will kick-off with an art history talk on Jefferson’s Masterpiece—the Lawn. You can expect an environmental talk about the state of the oceans and a talk on the future of domestic natural energy resources. In addition, the Virginia Film Festival will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year and the director will present its upcoming season to the More Than the Score audience and Virginia Tourism will share top reasons why Virginia is a cultural landmark for so many Hollywood stars. Don’t miss Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball prediction of the upcoming presidential race and learn about the defining decade for adulthood. All of these talks are free and open to—alumni, parents, students, and community friends. Did I mention that the talks are free? Do not miss any of these engaging discussions. See the website http://hoosonline.virginia.edu/morethanthescore for full details about each talk and check this blog for regular posts from faculty members participating in the 2012 upcoming More Than the Score Lecture Series. If your busy schedule doesn’t permit you to attend one of these talks, checkout the Podcasts http://www.virginia.edu/itunesu. Look for shorter Ted-like talks that are being introduced this year.
We look forward to seeing you this fall!
