UPCOMING EVENTS

What is success?

with Francis Su

IVGrad Large Group, Friday Oct 20th

6.45pm for snacks, 7pm start

Old Union Common Room, 3rd Floor

Where is this?

Can we redefine success for ourselves in graduate school? Dr. Su will share by contrasting the things he worried about as a grad student embarking on his journey (e.g. success, making a name for himself) with how much those things mean to him now and why. What is true success? How does success connect to a person’s identity if they are Christian? All are welcome to attend.

Francis Su is a Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College and past president of the Mathematical Association of America. He received his B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin and his Ph.D. from Harvard University. He has co-authored numerous papers with undergraduates. He also has a passion for teaching and popularizing mathematics. From the Mathematical Association of America, he received the 2001 Hasse Prize for expository writing, and the 2004 Alder Award and the 2013 Haimo Award for distinguished teaching. He authors the popular Math Fun Facts website and is creator of “MathFeed,” the math news app. His hobbies include songwriting, gardening, photography, and theology. Just like mathematics, these are modes of creative expression that blend structure and freedom, truth and beauty, reflection and action.

STANDING WATCH

JOIN US FOR FALL RETREAT: OCT 28-29

In the Bible, the person at the watch stands in the watchtower looking out for signs of the times – coming danger, or coming good news. The prophets stood watch looking and listening out for God’s word to his people. What does it mean to be a people looking and listening out for what God wants us to see and hear at Stanford? What does it mean to be a people who are attentive to God’s word, and how might that affect how we do life in grad school?

Brown-Collins, Ph.D. is the Associate Regional Director of Graduate and Faculty Ministries (GFM), Northeast, and the area director for InterVarsity’s Black Scholars and Professionals (BSAP).

    Some Important Information About Payment

    Payment must be made upon registration in cash or check made payable to InterVarsity/USA. If cancellations are made on or after October 24th, we will still need to ask for full payment as final numbers will already have been submitted to Camp Redwood Glen. As you are able, you are invited to contribute towards scholarships and the subsidies for fellow students who cannot meet the full $78 cost on their own. These contributions can be made at the registration table when you arrive (again in cash or by check, payable to InterVarsity/USA). During the retreat we will also take up an offering for IFES (the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students), of which InterVarsity is a part. This offering will be applied to the needs of Carifes, our sister movement in the Caribbean. Your gift offering to IFES can be made by cash, check or credit card.
