The Historic Roots of Downtown Greenville Tour

Where: Meet outside the main biology department office (mall side offices) at 3:45 pm. We’ll return to campus by 6:30 pm.

RSVP by clicking HERE. Space in the van is limited to 14 passengers, so please respond quickly to ensure a seat.
Details: Join us for the inaugural faculty-led field trip. We’re heading downtown for a history entrée with a side of socializing. The tour will explore the social, economic, and political history of the lower Main and Reedy River Falls neighborhood from the Archaic era though the 1990s, with an eye to how Greenville's story intersected with larger national and global historical trends.
We would like this to be the first of several field trips led by an interdisciplinary team of faculty across a wide range of topics. We aim to inspire interdisciplinary dialog, learn more about our community and the work of our colleagues, provide an informal opportunity to hang out with co-workers, and in this case, take a much needed break from grading. Thanks to the Faculty Development Committee for providing transportation and the first round of appetizers and beverages.
If you would like to lead a future tour, recruit a colleague (or two) from a different department and contact Lloyd Benson.
