This from the Religious Studies club:

We’re excited to announce the first Spring meeting of the religious studies club will be held this Thursday, January 24th at 4:30 in 326 of Old Main.  We will first have a ten minute presentation on Hebrew Exegesis and then a thirty minute presentation on the development of modern Norse Paganism.  It should be very interesting and I know our two student presenters are very knowledgeable in their individual fields.  Just a brief note – because our previous meetings were extending well beyond an hour, we have limited student presentations to one opening presentation of ten minutes and one full forty minute presentation.  In any case, we’re gonna have a lot of fun this semester.  We’ll spend a few minutes talking about some of our plans and the speakers that are coming this semester on Thursday.  (Including some very special opportunities we have in the month of February.)  Look forward to seeing you there.
