As the main classroom building for social sciences, humanities, math, and computer science classes, King is always bustling. In addition to classrooms, large lecture halls have data/video projectors with touch-screen controls and network access. Offices of the departments of anthropology, classics, computer science, East Asian studies, expository writing, mathematics, philosophy, and sociology are located in King. Designed by Minoru Yamasaki in 1966, the building resembles the adjacent Conservatory of Music.

It was wonderful to meet in person a true hero to the gay community (and beyond) in Peter Staley. Having the students exposed to his personal history is invaluable.

Promoting mental health care is much appreciated and I think more of this would be welcome by the membership, and myself.

This talk was perfect in so many ways: I learned science, I learned food, I learned culture and history, I was informed, and inspired. Ready to ferment.
