IN MEMORY OF FRED: A TRIBUTE TO FRED SHOTLOW    
The Truman College Library invites you to join them in celebrating the life of Fred Shotlow on Wednesday, May 10, at 1 p.m. in the Truman College Library. Fred worked as a member of the library staff for over 24 years and was a chapter grievance chair for Local 1708 for over 18 years. He was a kind and dedicated individual and his death last year was a loss to all who knew him.   

We will be sharing out memories of Fred during the memorial and will dedicate library books in his honor. We will also announce our plans for the Fred Shotlow Student Award.   

Please RSVP to Leone McDermott or 773-907-4877. In particular, please let us know if you would like to speak about Fred during the memorial or if you have pictures that you would like to share.

LINKED COURSES STUDENTS TAKE TRIP TO HAROLD WASHINGTON LIBRARY EXHIBITION         
Back in February, students in the Linked Course "Making History: Finding Your Way into the American Past," along with instructors Dennis Skentzis (History 112) and Kate Gillespie (English 102), visited the Harold Washington Library, for a private tour of the exhibit, Working in America.        

Working in America is inspired by Studs Terkel's interviews for his book "Working." The continuing exhibit captures the stories of 24 working Americans photographed by Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, Lynsey Addario, and was designed in collaboration with MacArthur Fellow Jean Gang and Project&. The exhibit also features an online living archive, "Your Working Story," which allowed Truman students to contribute their own stories about what work means to them.        

After the tour, students visited "Above and Beyond," an art installation of 58,000 dog tags created by Vietnam veteran artists; the library's Winter Garden; and the exhibit on former mayor Harold Washington.  They also had time to visit a special exhibit on Ronco and Popeil products, famously advertised on late 20th century American television.

TRUMAN STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN AMERICAN STATISTICAL ASSOCIATION DATAFEST 2017             
Truman students Thy HoKarl Ratner, and Andrew Nadeau gave stellar performances the weekend of March 31 at the American Statistical DataFest 2017 at Loyola University. The DataFest is a 42-hour statistical hackathon for undergraduate and Master's degree-level students majoring in statistics, computer science, data science or mathematics at colleges all across the United States. About 20 teams participated in the event at Loyola.             

On the evening of Friday, March 31, teams were presented with a large, real-world data set that had been donated by a popular Internet company (the data has to remain a secret until May when the nationwide competition closes). The dataset had 23 columns and over 10 million rows! (Microsoft Excel will not even open a file that large.) The task is very open-ended - to find something interesting in the data - and the students had 42 hours to load the data, strategize, hypothesize and analyze before presenting their results on Sunday morning.             

During their preparation for the event over the past few months and in their execution of statistical wizardry over the weekend, Thy, Karl and Andrew demonstrated determination, problem-solving prowess, and teamwork, proudly representing Truman College.             

Thanks go to the team's chief technical advisor - Cari-Lynn Hennessy - for training the team on the R statistical programming language and research methods during the months leading up to the event, and for volunteering as an expert consultant at DataFest.
