News & Views from Campus: August 28th – September 3rd  

Notable “Holidays” Coming Up!

August 29th: International bat night. The only flying mammal in the world, they eat their body weight in bugs EVERY night, and there are over 1,400 species worldwide. Thanks, little guys!

September 1st: Emma M. Nutt Day. Emma was the first female telephone operator, way back in 1878 at the Boston Telephone dispatch Company.

September 2nd: VJ Day. On this day in 1945, Japan surrendered unconditionally to the Allies, effectively ending WWII. Japan’s formal surrender took place on the U.S.S. Missouri, anchored in Tokyo Bay. It came several months after the surrender of Germany.

September 3rd: International Bacon Day, something we can really sink our teeth into! American bacon is made from pork belly, while European and Canadian bacon is made with meat from the back of the animal, thus the difference.

Happy Birthday
