Five things to look forward to this week
To start off your Monday morning right, here are a few events to look forward to this week including the Cougars taking on the Vanderbilt University Commodores, speaking on privacy being a human right or just plain annoying and Halloween-themed readings from The Glass Mountain.
October 27: “Privacy, A Human Right or a Nuisance?”
Student Center South Ballroom, Room 210 West
Veronika Tonry, Global Privacy Manager at Chevron will lead the discussion at 3 p.m. This event will be sponsored by The Center for Information Security Research and Education and the Cyber Security Club. All students and faculty are welcomed to join the conversation.
October 27: Glass Mountain Reading Series presents ‘Hallow Reading’
AD Bruce Religion Center, 2nd Floor
Glass Mountain is a national undergraduate literary magazine run by undergraduates at UH.
Glass Mountain’s second reading of the semester is Halloween-themed. Bring your most hallowed poetry and prose to read at the open mic at 7 p.m., or just come to listen to talented writers read their work – this month they are featuring one prose writer and two poets.

October 28: Diversity Workshop: Inclusive Language
Student Center South, Room 219 (Bayou City)
