Hop Over to Heyman

Written by

Bwog likes to hop, and we encourage you to do the same. Amid the craziness of the EC courtyard lies the glorious Heyman Center for the Humanities. Last night they released the full Spring 2011 lecture schedule, featuring intellectual heavy-hitters like David Harvey and James Fenton. You should go! You get to snuggle up to smarter superiors and sometimes they have good snacks.
