Dean of the Ingram Commons Residence

Get a great dinner. Get a new perspective on writing. Get to know a professor in a fun, informal setting. Those are three reasons you should attend “Dinner and a Draft,” coming up on Thursday, September 27 from 6:00-7:30, at the Dean of the Ingram Commons Residence!

Our faculty guest for the fall semester will be Dr. Lauren Buchanan. Dr. Buchanan is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Vanderbilt. Her research focuses on using ultra-fast lasers to study protein folding and dynamics in order to better understand how to design novel materials used in biomedical applications such as drug delivery, imaging, and sensing.

You’re invited! Join the Writing Studio and our host Interim Dean Melchor-Barz as we share a meal, talk about the challenges and rewards of getting words on the page, and get to know Professor Buchanan.

It’s going to be a fantastic evening. Space is limited, so reserve a spot here soon.

(*Please note: All students are welcome, but first-year students are given priority for this September 27 event, which is held in partnership with the Dean of the Ingram Commons.)
