The guitar duo of Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge is a collaboration founded in the roots of acoustic music, exploring improvisation and spontaneous composition performed on their 1939 Martin guitars.

“…stressing beauty of sound above all else, [here’s] a richly lyrical music that’s as surprising as it is inevitable.” – The Chicago Tribune (on Lage)

As a member of Punch Brothers, Chris Eldridge has been at the vanguard of acoustic music for much of the past decade. Although initially drawn to the electric guitar, Eldridge developed a love for acoustic music thanks in part to his father, a banjo player and member of the bluegrass group The Seldom Scene. He gained exposure to a variety of musical styles while studying at Oberlin Conservatory, where he earned a degree in music performance in 2004. Eldridge has worked with a diverse cast of musical luminaries, including Fiona Apple, Paul Simon, Marcus Mumford, Justin Timberlake, T-Bone Burnett, and Elvis Costello.

“The most talked-about guitarist in the bluegrass world.” – Acoustic Guitar (on Eldridge)

Hailed by All About Jazz as “a giant in the making,” Lage grew up in California and was the subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary, Jules at Eight. A protégé of legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton, he recorded and toured with Burton on two projects: Generations (2004) and Next Generation (2005). Other high-profile appearances include Lucky To Be Me and Let It Come To You by pianist Taylor Eigsti. Lage reunited with Gary Burton for live engagements in 2010 and can be heard as a member of the “New Gary Burton Quartet” on the forthcoming CD Common Ground (featuring Scott Colley and Antonio Sanchez).

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 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:

* “The Birth of Natural Philosophy and Its Prodigal Son: Science,” 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29: Kroto looks at the debate and events shaping the pioneers responsible for the birth of science.

* “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.

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.
