Things Going on this Week

Ethlie Ann Vare

Tuesday, November 18 @ 7pm
Memorial Union Great Room
Women inventors have fallen through the cracks of history. Ethlie Ann Vare has made it her mission to drag them out, dust them off, and shine a spotlight on them. Her inspiring, entertaining and often humorous presentation puts to rest the preconception that “women don’t invent things.”

Help Support the the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities' 

In honor of Veterans Day and America Recycles Day next week, you’ll receive double rewards points and a coupon for Pepsi products when you recycle your plastic bottles and aluminum cans in our campus Dream Machine from Sunday, November 9th through Friday, November 21st!

Every time you recycle, you are helping PepsiCo support the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program, which provides training in entrepreneurship and small business management to help our war heroes around the nation.

Through its recycling programs, such as the Dream Machine right here on our campus, PepsiCo aims to increase the U.S. beverage container recycling rate to 50 percent by 2018. Since PepsiCo issued its goal in 2010, recycling rates have already increased by 7 percent (from 34 percent to 42 percent today). NDSU is proud to be one of the colleges and universities offering this rewarding recycling program to students. We can’t succeed without your help—all you have to do is recycle!

Visit for more information about how to get involved in the program.

Happy Veterans Day and America Recycles Day!
