Please join us in the first installment of what I hope will be a great resource for all UF students: Buford Life Hacks. Our first session will be all about preparing for winter. This is great for students who are new to our climate and would like to know how to be prepared, as well as those who are new to living independently and want to make sure their home is ready for the cold and snow. Snacks will be provided!

The Human Library Event is sponsored by Findlay Hancock County Public Library, the Mazza Museum, and the Center for Teaching Excellence. Participants will have the opportunity to “check out” human “books” within the Mazza Museum and hear the lived experiences of others. The event is free and open to the public.
Low Man on the Totem Pole – How I Became a White Collar Criminal
When Helen Sharkey was hired as an accountant in 1996 by Dynegy, an up and coming energy trading company in Houston, she had no idea the job would ultimately lead to 28 days in a maximum-security federal prison…but that’s exactly what happened.
At the age of 28, Helen was the lowest-level employee on a $300 million structured finance transaction team called Project Alpha. Little did she know, Dynegy was following in the footsteps on Enron. Soon the Securities and Exchange Commission launched an investigation of Project Alpha, followed by criminal charges brought by the Justice Department against three employees, including Helen.
In August 2003, Helen pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud.
Join us for a relaxing walk through the labyrinth and a chance to take a minute to refocus and relax.
