Spotlight on Halloween Hijinks

halloweenApparently the “Force Awakened” recently in a galaxy not so far away. There were reports of Han Solo lecturing in anatomy and physiology, Rey lecturing in field ecology, while Yoda, Han Solo, a Jedi, and Poe Dameron lectured in introductory biology.

Never underestimate the power of the Dark Side, as a Storm Trooper lectured on population genetics while Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine lectured on biochemistry and cell biology in the Health Science Building on Halloween. Fortunately, the Force is strong in our biology students and they were able to survive knowledge of that magnitude… now if they can only find the droids they are looking for.
