Made In America: An International Experience @ Rudder Auditorium
Mar 27 @ 7:00 PM

The MSC L.T. Jordan Institute for International Awareness, in partnership with MSC OPAS, Muslim Student Association, and International Student Association, is proud to announce their newest program to hit the BCS area- Made in America: an International Experience. The program will feature comedy sets by popular comedians Azhar Usman and Hasan Minhaj. 

Usman, returning to Texas A&M after performing on the campus back in 2016, has done comedy tours around the United States in the past, collaborated with comedian Dave Chappelle and performed at comedy festivals, including “Allah Made Me Funny.” Minhaj, a Senior Correspondent for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, and star of the Netflix Special “Homecoming King” which highlights stories from Minhaj’s life as a first generation Indian-American Muslim, will be headlining the show.  

Following the sets, both comedians will participate in a Q&A session, and interact with the audience.

The program will take place on March 27th at 7pm in Rudder Auditorium, but tickets are on sale now, and are available at the MSC Box Office, or online at boxoffice.tamu.edu. Make sure to get your tickets early, to ensure best available seats!

Sep 19 @ 12:20 PM – 1:20 PM

Joel Taylor is a Master’s candidate at the Bush School. Joel and his team traveled to 9 different districts in Uganda this past December to research on existing refrigeration and freezing practices for protecting and preserving perishable agricultural and pharmaceutical products. Through his experience abroad, Joel gained a better understanding of food logistics in East Africa as it relates to temperature controlled supply chains. Come hear about Joel’s experience and what he learned!

Fellows Lecture Series: Leigh Ellyn Preston @ SPH Classroom 119/120
Sep 26 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Leigh Ellyn Preston is a DrPH candidate in Epidemiology and Environmental Science at the Texas A&M School of Public Health. Leigh traveled to Quito, Ecuador to research the environmental health infrastructure issues and zoonotic exposures that potentially influence diarrheal disease in urban neighborhoods versus rural neighborhoods. While abroad, Leigh also had a goal to identify barrios on the islands of San Cristobal and Santa Cruz with higher incidence rates of parasitic infections. Come hear about Leigh’s experience and what she learned!

Fellows Lecture Series: Rachel Adams @ WFES 336
Oct 4 @ 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

Rachel Adams is a PhD candidate in the Ecosystem Science and Management department. Her research focuses on deep rooting tropical trees in the seasonally dry forests of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. With genetics tools and stable isotopes, Adams determined which species can grow deep roots into the caves and how their access to groundwater impacts above ground forest composition and productivity. Come hear about Rachel’s experience and what she learned!

Fellows Lecture Series: Brianna Myre @ BTLR 309
Oct 10 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Brie Myre is a PhD candidate in Biology studying sea turtle feeding physiology during reproduction. Her goal is to use physiology as a tool for conservation, as hormones can inform us about the cryptic behavior of these mysterious creatures. The central focus of Brie’s work is to advise the development of more effective conservation plans to aid Olive Ridley sea turtles in having more and healthier offspring. Come hear about Brie’s experience and what she learned!
