This week for the Community Semester students will share their research and creativity on campus and unveil a display at the Terre Haute Children's Museum.

The Community Semester, which focuses on the theme "Our Town," is a way for the College of Arts and Sciences to showcase what it does best and to encourage faculty and students to share what they are learning to the community. It is also a way to bring innovative ideas in the science, humanities, liberal and creative arts to the area.

From April 1 - 5 in the Cunningham Memorial Library, "Exposium: A Celebration of Student Research and Creativity," will take place from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. each day. This program celebrates the academic work ISU students have accomplished this past semester.

On April 3, "Performing Fine Arts Day of Exposium" will take place in Recital Hall beginning at 12 p.m. Students will have the opportunity to perform their creative solos

"Math and Mentoring" will open the beginning of April at the Terre Haute Children's Museum, 727 Wabash Avenue. This display will exhibit, hypotrochoid, curves made from using a fixed radius point. This hands-on project is done by the history of mathematics honor students.
