Associate professor of biology, Kenneth Lacovara, Ph.D., offered the evening’s ‘food for thought’ with his presentation on the discovery of a new giant dinosaur in Patagonia, Argentina.
Lacovara provided a humorous and insightful presentation about his numerous trips to the remote area in Patagonia where he and his team discovered fossils representing one or two large dinosaurs.
Drexel faculty and professional staff are invited to celebrate the end of fall term at ScholarSip on Monday, December 10th from 4:30 – 6:30 PM at Drexel's Academic Bistro.

New Student Orientation consists of a packed two-day schedule for incoming freshmen to learn more about becoming Drexel students. The Libraries participate annually in orientation sessions, providing information about library services, resources and staff.
For summer 2012 sessions, a memorable and interactive presentation aims to leave students with a positive impression of the Libraries and library staff. Prepared by Librarian for Undergraduate Learning Nancy Bellafante, the presentation is designed with the understanding that students will likely not retain all of the information they hear. So, her presentation focuses on getting students to understand that the Libraries provides many important services and resources that will help them to succeed.
