Events and Activities for Graduate Students

Tuesday, October 24
10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Mandan Room - MU

Attributing research, ideas, and writing to those they originated with is part of the bedrock of academic integrity. Plagiarism, on the other hand, undermines not only the writer and researcher who intentionally or unintentionally plagiarizes, but also the work presented in the plagiarized paper.

Learn what is considered plagiarism and techniques to avoid plagiarism.  

Limited availability! To register, contact Kristina Caton.

Get ready for a sidesplitting sendup of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.
