To those of you who may actually look at this blog, I apologize for the delay in posting. http://news.nau.edu/naus-new-exhibit-celebrates-50-years-university/#.V_Z-4Xma271
NAU – I found the above article interesting, I knew NAU had been around (under one name or another) since 1899. The 100 celebration happened just as I was getting ready to start college. I didn’t know that NAU became a university in 1966. I tried the link in the article for the virtual exhibit, but it didn’t work as of Oct. 6th. Hopefully they get it fixed, since I’d like to check it out virtually (going in person before Aug. 2017 doesn’t seem very likely).
Science – The 3dprintboard.com article above is awesome! The MakerLab opened on Aug. 29th in Cline Library at NAU and is the first such MakerLab in the Western US. I’m glad to see NAU continuing to do new exciting things in the STEM areas, and glad to see one of my former professors getting some (much deserved) credit. Way to go , Dr. Tester! I only wish this had opened when I was a student at NAU….it would have made our Senior Design Project way easier!
Football – 1-4 (0-2) Well, after losing to Eastern Washington 50-35, the Jacks then played a more competitive game at Northern Colorado, but still fell 18-21. The Jacks will continue to seek a W on the road at Montana St. on Saturday. GO JACKS!!!
Soccer – 4-6-2 (1-1-1) First, congratulations to the the Lady Jacks who have, for the 14th straight year, earned the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Team Academic Award. Per the article below, the Lumberjacks posted a cumulative team grade point average of 3.40 for the 2015-16 academic year.
The Lady Jacks have done alright since the last post, going 1-1-1 (all conference play). Up next, the Lady Jack continue Big Sky conference play on the road at North Dakota on Friday and at Northern Colorado on Sunday. GO JACKS!!!
Volleyball – 14-3 (4-0) These lady Jacks have continued to win, remaining undefeated in conference matches. Up next are matches and Eastern Washington tonight, and at Idaho on Saturday. Keep up the great work ladies! Go Jacks!!!
In other news, the Phoenix Suns held their 14th training camp at NAU, and wrapped it up on Oct. 1st. See article below for more info: http://news.nau.edu/phoenix-suns-wrap-week-training-camp/
And finally, Homecoming week for the Lumberjack will take place from Oct. 10 – 15. The article below has all the details: http://news.nau.edu/homecoming-2016-upon-time-nau/#.V_aEA3ma270
Let’s open up the thread, and remember to keep up the great work, Jacks!!!
