Rob Dunn

On October 15, 2015, Dr. Robert Dunn, a biologist, writer and professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at North Carolina State University, will be presenting a program entitled “The Man Who Touched His Own Heart”.

Dr. Dunn has written several books and many science essays. His popular science essays have appeared in magazines such as BBC Wildlife Magazine, Scientific American, Smithsonian Magazine, National Geographic and others. He is quickly becoming known for efforts to involve the public as citizen scientists in arthropod surveys and bacterial flora studies. His projects include studies of belly button biodiversity, mites that live on human faces, ants in backyards, and fungi and bacteria in houses.


2015-16 NC State University Woman’s Club Membership Renewal

It is that time of year again as we start thinking about a new club year that will begin in September 2015. Please print and complete the renewal form. You do not need to fill out the details of address, phone, etc., unless that information has changed. Please pay attention to the information asked for “e-mail or postal notice” of monthly newsletters and meeting reminders. Several members did not check their choice last year which makes it harder for us to stay in touch with our membership. Please also take a serious look at the different committees that keep our club operating smoothly. Only members can serve on those committees and that means if you don't volunteer to serve on a committee, committees may not be able to fulfill their duties. We need all of our members to pitch in and work to make the club stronger. Each of you have good ideas and are quite capable to help the committees function. Consider volunteering for at least one committee. As the committees are formed for the new fiscal year, you will be notified if you are needed to serve on an additional committee. – Ann Frazier, 2nd Vice President, Membership.
