Rieke Weekie - November 14th - 18th

It’s time for the fourth annual Rieke Weekie! Join us November 14-18th, as the College of Natural Sciences hosts special events in celebration of the disciplines represented in the Rieke Science Center (Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, and Physics). In the lead-up to Rieke Weekie, we’ll be asking the PLU community to vote on the photographs submitted as part of our Rieke Photo Contest. The top three photos in each category will receive LuteBucks and be displayed in the glass cases across from Enrieké.  All of the PLU community is invited to attend and participate!
