The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]

Brown bag event honors women mentors

Yesterday women across campus were asked to invite their favorite mentor to a catered lunch in the Women’s Center. ‘ The ‘The 11th Annual Bring Your Favorite Professor/Mentor to Lunch’ event was hosted yesterday to capstone March’s Women’s History Month. Students were encouraged to bring the one woman who has made a difference in their lives as a professor or mentor. Mary Krueger, director of the Women’s Center, welcomed those in attendance and invited the mentors to join in discussion with the other women in attendance. ‘This is my favorite event we do because there is no agenda,’ Kruger said. ‘There is no expectation but to celebrate your favorite mentor and be grateful for the women who have influenced you in your life at BGSU.’ Kerry Jones, a doctoral student in Higher Education Administration, invited her mentor, Evlyn Asheley, a second-year doctoral student, to be her guest at the luncheon. ‘I invited her because she has a listening ear, and she has been so helpful this year,’ Jones said. Asheley said she was honored to be chosen as Jones’s mentor. ‘The fact that she would even think of me is very flattering,’ Asheley said. The Women’s Center was filled with guests who swapped stories about how the University has changed in the past 20 years and what their plans are for the future. Dana Roof and Lee Meiser, graduate students at the University, sat together and shared stories about’ the University in the early 1970s. ‘We both used to have hair’ down to our waists!’ Roof said. Meiser remembered fondly the mentors she had as a student then and enjoys talking to and mentioning students now as a graduate student in enterpreneurship. After the luncheon the mentors were given carnations and certificates to remember the event by. ‘I just love this,’ Kruger said. ‘I love looking around the room and seeing all the positive energy.’
