Kittens bring smiles during exams
During the semester one exam season, Cat Rescue Dunedin brought kittens to the College to provide a well-deserved study break for Members.
In a lively and interesting session, Prof Colombo compared university education here and in the USA, the advisability of gaining as wide an education as possible, developing generic skills and his team’s research on how memory is coded in the brain.
"The Fellows Dinner last night was wonderful - thank you. The calibre of members was impressive, as was their palpable positivity. The College is clearly in good heart. I always enjoy catching up with other Fellows and appreciate the opportunity to get to know more members over a delicious dinner."
Associate Professor Christine Jasoni is an accomplished researcher, teacher and enthusiastic science communicator, and we were treated to an excellent demonstration of those qualities, along with her engaging sense of humour.
