Holiday party is December 8. After a two-year hiatus, the universitywide holiday celebration is back. All are invited to Weiss Café from 3:30 to 5 p.m. for food and beverages.
Happy anniversary. At an afternoon reception on October 27, the university celebrated employment anniversaries for 147 members of the community who had reached 10 years of service in 2009, 2010 or 2011. For a list of the names of the 10-year honorees, visit http://benchmarks.rockefeller.edu/anniversary.php.
Employees who have reached longer milestones will be recognized in the spring.
Bags for sale. Rockefeller reusable shopping bags are available for $3.25 each from the Weiss and CRC coffee carts. The sturdy, lightweight
nylon bags are the size of a plastic grocery bag and fold into an
attached pouch for storage. Carry one on your errands to help reduce waste.
Holiday Lectures are December 27. This year’s Rockefeller University Holiday Lectures on Science
for High School Students, begun in 1959 by Alfred E. Mirsky, a
biochemist and university librarian, will feature Sarah Schlesinger
and Marina Caskey from Ralph Steinman’s lab. About 400 students from schools around the city attend the lectures each year. This year’s lectures are entitled “Not Just Another Macrophage: How Ralph Steinman’s Controversial Discovery
of the Dendritic Cell Slowly Transformed Immunology.” Tickets are
required. For more information, call Gloria Phipps at x8967. http://www.rockefeller.edu/holidaylecture/2011.
