Take a dynamic duo writing team, add in a stellar acting ensemble, and tie it all together with one of the great comedy directors of our time and you’ve got a recipe for success! Known lovingly by fans for pioneering the “mockumentary,” Christopher Guest’s films have won audiences the world over. Don’t miss this chance to see three of his best on the big screen!

There’s A Mighty Wind a-blowin’, along with gales of laughter, as we follow a latter-day reunion of fictional ‘60s-era folk singers. A beloved folk promoter has passed away and a concert is staged in his honor where three bands reunite for the first time in decades. The groups (who have sunk to various levels of musical irrelevance since their heydays) agree to the performance, which goes off with more than a few hitches.

Best in Show follows a clutch of dog owners as they prepare and preen their dogs to win a national competition. The tension is palpable, the excitement is mounting, and the heady scent of competition is in the air as hundreds of eager contestants from across America prepare to take part in what is undoubtedly one of the greatest events of their lives – the Mayflower Dog Show.

In Waiting for Guffman*, a small town prepares for celebrations of its 150th anniversary. Corky St.Clair, an off-off-off-off-off-Broadway director puts together an amateur production about the town’s history. The film follows various townsfolk wishing for stardom: a Dairy Queen clerk, two stage-struck travel agents, the town’s bad boy/mechanic, and a dentist who dreams of glory on the stage.

2:00 p.m. A Mighty Wind
4:00 p.m. Best In Show
7:30 p.m. Waiting For Guffman**

*All Access Pass ($30) includes admission to all three films, as well as free popcorn refills (offer only valid 11/1/14).

**Waiting for Guffman ($15) includes a discussion panel featuring local film experts and a surprise Skype Q&A with one of the film’s stars.

The opportunity for learning and engagement at the Mentoring Institute depends upon having engaging presentations. This year, we look forward to conversations specifically related to mentoring males, such as: "What are opportunities and challenges specific to mentoring men and boys?"; "How can mentors and mentoring professionals best engage specific populations?" (i.e.: GBT community, athletes, boys being raised by single parents, males in the collegiate Greek system, adolescents in the juvenile system, etc.); and "How can mentors and mentoring professionals focus on values and principles that inform, enrich, and/or challenge limited models of power and authority?" We welcome individuals or groups to present on these and other topics related to mentoring men and boys. Proposals will be accepted through Monday, November 3 at 9:00am with priority consideration for presentations submitted by Monday, October 27.

Setting experience related to your career goals can be a great way to apply what you are learning in the classroom. It also allows you to see if you want to pursue a particular occupation and work in a particular industry or setting. In addition, you gain an edge when your job search begins, because you will have skills and relevant experience that employers are seeking.

Nobel laureate and Florida State University Professor Sir Harold Kroto is hosting his annual “Opening Minds” lecture series this October and November to help spur creativity and scientific experimentation within the university and surrounding community.

The seven-lecture series kicked off on Wednesday, Oct. 1, with “Créativité Sans Frontières." In this opening lecture, Kroto explored the creativity involved in some of the science that we interact with every day, and encourage attendees to examine their own creative insights.

For example, take the development of the iPhone.

“What kind of genius was involved in creating that kind of innovation,” Kroto said. “I feel this is important to open people’s eyes to this.”

Kroto won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1996 for his discovery of buckyballs, which are carbon molecules that are lightweight, but exceptionally strong. He came to Florida State University in 2004 after teaching for 37 years at the University of Sussex.

In addition to his research activities, Kroto gives public lectures worldwide on science and creativity. He also visits elementary and secondary schools to encourage children to pursue careers in the sciences.

All of the lectures are free and open to the public. They will take place on Wednesdays in the Askew Student Life Cinema.

The remaining lectures are as follows:

* “Across the Universe: Tales of Mystery and Imagination from the Fascinating World of Modern Physics,” 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5: Guest speaker Mark Riley, a Robert O. Lawton Professor, describes recent physics advances from the discovery of the Higgs particle, commonly known as the God particle, plus the grand mysteries of dark matter and dark energy. Riley’s presentation will provide insight into the excitement modern physicists feel about the universe’s major puzzles.

* “The Educational Revolution and the GooYouWiki World,” 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12: The Internet is the second great revolution in education; the first was the invention of the printing press. Not only is information today almost instantaneously locatable and accessible, but anyone with expertise and a passion to communicate can contribute to the amazing, globally accessible cache of knowledge.

The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) has long supported the efforts of its member institutions in developing student leaders - through athletics and campus life. Through the support of the ACC, each year five undergraduate student leaders (accompanied by a faculty/staff adviser) from each ACC university gather at a host university to study and teach, to swap and share both leadership strategies and knowledge regarding a specific social issue.

Student leaders from each of the 12 ACC Colleges and Universities will have the opportunity to learn through intensive engagement in educational sessions, keynote addresses, topical content exploration, simulations and experiential application.

The 2015 ACC Leadership Symposium is a three-day leadership conference aimed at engaging students with peers across the Atlantic Coast Conference. This year, the ACC Leadership Symposium will be hosted at the University of Notre Dame, February 27 - March 1, 2015.

To attend the ACC Leadership Symposium as an FSU delegate, you must apply and be selected. Applications are due 11:59 pm EST, November 6, 2014. Go to thecenter.fsu.edu/ACCconference to learn more.

http://openingnights.fsu.edu/performers/sierra-hull

Boundaries - age, genre, or otherwise - don’t hamper an artist like Sierra Hull. As one of bluegrass’s few full-fledged virtuosic instrumentalist/singer/songwriters, twenty-two year old Sierra Hull wins audiences over with her reverence to artists like Bill Monroe and the bluegrass tradition while looking forward creating original country, western swing, and popular music compositions. At the age of eleven she was mentored and befriended by Alison Krauss, and at eighteen became the first bluegrass musician to be awarded a Presidential Scholarship at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Sierra has performed at the White House, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Carnegie Hall, and numerous festivals and concert halls across the country. Join Sierra Hull and her band at the Carriage House for an evening of heartfelt and fleet-fingered American music.

“I can’t say enough about Sierra Hull... Sierra is truly a beautiful and talented gift to this world, so special and unique.” – Dolly Parton

In his young career, ukulele wizard Jake Shimabukuro has already redefined a heretofore under-the-radar instrument. He was declared a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone magazine and won accolades from the disparate likes of Eddie Vedder, blogger Perez Hilton, and CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Shimabukuro came into the public eye in 2006 by means of a YouTube video performance covering George Harrison’s While My Guitar Gently Weeps entitled Ukulele Weeps, which has amassed over 13,000,000 views and counting. He continues to mesmerize audiences on stage with his performances of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Chick Corea’s Spain, Adele’s Rolling in the Deep, and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, to name a few. Shimabukuro’s television appearances include The Today Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, and his own PBS special Jake Shimabukuro: Live on Four Strings.

“Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can’t see anybody else catching up with.” – Eddie Vedder
