NEWS FLASH: BREAKING NEWS! Campout 2013 Date has changed!! More details below! [Now back to your regularly scheduled GPSC News...]

"haunting, surreal, and stunningly elaborate portraits of small-town American life"
Charming colleagues,

I'm excited to see the documentary about Gregory Crewdson's work this Wednesday. Crewdson creates complex and layered images which straddle the line between fiction and reality. The New York Times says "Mr. Crewdson’s unsettling ability to evoke the ineluctable void between observer and observed — and between one human being and another — is beyond the reach of words."

Also this week, Nasher events (as always) and another chance to take advantage of our wonderful Career Center to help polish your resume. See below for more details!

The heat wave finally broke. Soak up summer while it lasts.
