    For those new to campus or who have not attended Ides in recent years, the event provides a great venue for sharing the fruits of your creative and research activities, for learning about the exciting work conducted by your faculty colleagues, and for easing your way into the fall semester. Over 35 years ago, Biology Professor Thomas Cole orchestrated the first Ides of August. It was a one and one-half day event that included an evening dinner and speaker. Over the intervening years the Ides has evolved into a day-long session of brief presentations and breaks where one can renew old acquaintances and establish new ones. The 2019 Ides of August continues the tradition and our ongoing conversation across our disciplines. This year's program will be accompanied by a continental breakfast, refreshment breaks, lunch, and the popular post-Ides reception.
