World Origami Days: October 24th

Years ago, the Mathematics and Computer Science Departments were a single department.  Now back together under the same roof in Higgins Hall, both departments are collaborating to host the World Origami Days kickoff event, on Thursday, Oct. 24th.  Students can stop by the Higgins Hall lobby anytime between 10 am- 2 pm, where they can learn to fold a single pyramid pixel and enjoy free light refreshments.  All pixels will be installed as part of a collaborative art project that will be displayed in the vestibule adjacent to the Higgins Hall lobby.  This art installation will continue to grow over the weeks of World Origami Days, ending Nov. 11.  The first 50 students to participate in the kickoff event will receive a free Macricostas Experience T-shirt.
