Madam President: The Secret Presidency of Edith Wilson
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

After President Woodrow Wilson suffered a paralyzing stroke in the fall of 1919, First Lady Edith Wilson began to handle the day-to-day responsibilities of the Executive Office. Mrs. Wilson had little formal education and had only been married to the President for four years; yet, in the tenuous peace following World War I, Mrs. Wilson assumed the authority of the office of the president for 17 months, becoming, as one senator put it, "the presidentress who had fulfilled the dream of suffragettes by changing her title from First Lady to Acting First Man."

Building the Pyramids
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Egypt and Nubia were home to many pyramids built over a span of 2,000 years, but it is the three pyramids belonging to Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure on the Giza plateau that continue to hold the fascination of the world. Building these monuments required the recruitment and organization of large work forces along with their support staff. This talk will highlight the most recent research regarding their construction and the impact it had on ancient Egyptian society. Exciting excavations in the shadow of the Giza pyramids at Heit el-Ghurab over the last 20 years have revealed the city from which these construction projects were administered. In 2015 a most unbelievable discovery was made when a team working along the Red Sea coast at a site called Wadi al-Jarf found the discarded journals and papers of a man who worked acquiring resources for building the Great Pyramid for Khufu at Giza. Never before has so much been known about the daily life of the pyramid builders.

Presented by Joey Cross, a Ph.D. student in both Egyptology and Hebrew Bible studies in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago.

Spend Smarter Right NOW!
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

New Year, New You!

We all want to make more money but most of us can't control when or how we get a raise. However, we can change how we think about what we spend and learn to manage our money differently in order to help us reach our financial goals. In this seminar, we will tackle the following ideas about spending smarter:

  • What are "today dollars" and "tomorrow dollars," and what does that mean to you?
  • How do we hide our spending from ourselves and how to stop it?
  • What is a strong "financial fortress" and how do you build it?
