1. Loyola-Baltimore to present “Year of the City” project
The Diederich College of Communication will sponsor a presentation on Loyola College’s “Year of the City” project tomorrow, Sept. 7, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in Johnston 303. The speakers are Michael Braden, S.J., and Kaye Whitehead, two of the communication faculty at Loyola who directed much of the multimedia work on the project.
The project grew out of the inaugural address of Loyola-Baltimore President Brian F. Linnane, S.J., who declared that the 2006-2007 academic year would be a “Year of the City,” a time to reaffirm his college's relationship with Baltimore, celebrate the city's history and culture, and reflect upon Loyola’s role in addressing city problems.
In response, several Communication Department classes at Loyola created media projects showcasing the city’s neighborhoods. Braden and Whitehead will discuss the project and its impact on Loyola’s relationship with the city of Baltimore.
RSVP to Donna Turben 8-7133.
The presentation is the first in a series that the college is sponsoring this fall to highlight imaginative experiments in curriculum and outreach at other Jesuit universities.
2. Channel 10 broadcasting Janine Geske segment
The broadcast of “Repairing the Harm: Restorative Justice” will be aired on Milwaukee Public Television, Channel 10, tomorrow, Sept. 7, at 10 p.m.

6. Sign up for Easy Pass

10. Tips for switching to Office 07
IT Services has written tips to ease the switch from Office 2003 to Office 2007. This document addresses common problems and basic instructions for finding commonly used commands in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. There are also suggestions for saving files so that people who do not have the latest software installed can read them.
MS Office 2007 was released early in 2007 and it now comes standard on all new PCs. Because Marquette has a campus-wide license for Office, IT Services is able to install the upgrade on any university-owned PC. There are some differences between the 2003 and 2007 versions, however.
For more information about upgrading to Office 2007, visit the IT Services Web site or call the Help Desk at 8-7799.
For Mac users, Microsoft Office 2008 is due to be released in January and IT Services will provide information about updates in 2008.
11. Haggerty Museum helps celebrate architect Alexander C. Eschweiler
The Haggerty Museum of Art joins The Charles Allis Art Museum and the Milwaukee County Historical Society in celebrating the legacy of architect Alexander C. Eschweiler by presenting plans, elevations and archival photographs of his architectural projects for Marquette University. “Celebrating Eschweiler’s Architectural Heritage at Marquette University” runs through Sept. 23 at the Haggerty Museum. Eschweiler (1848-1940) designed Sensenbrenner Hall in 1923-24 and Marquette Hall between 1923-27.
This exhibition will present a closer look at Eschweiler and his vision for Marquette through historic images and large-scale reproductions of actual work plans of the two buildings.
