12. LEADERSHIP: Art of Leadership Conference:
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines leadership as a noun meaning "the
office or position of a leader" and "the capacity to lead." In truth,
being a leader is much more than a title or a position - leadership is
an art. 

On Sunday, October 7, LeadUF will show current and potential student
leaders how to think outside of the position and expand their
perceptions of leadership with the annual Art of Leadership conference.
Registration will begin at 12:00pm in the J. Wayne Reitz Union. Students
should come prepared to have their concept of leadership altered and
ready to become true masters at the Art of Leadership. 

Applications are available on http://dso.ufl.edu and
http://union.ufl.edu/involvement/applications, and are due on September
28 to [log in to unmask] or to the Center for Leadership and Service in
Peabody Hall.

13. EVENT: Network of Enlightened Women (NEW POSTING, TODAY):
This Thursday, September 27 at 7:00pm at Turlington 2319, the Network of
enlightened Women will be holding their second meeting of the year. NeW
is UF's sole conservative women's group and at our meeting we will be
discussing feminism, gender differences, and romance in today's world.
Definitely check us out at our national website www.enlightenedwomen.org
. Girls from all backgrounds and various viewpoints are welcome. We look
forward to seeing you there and come ready to develop a NeW way of
thinking!

14. EVENT: The Cherry Orchard (NEW POSTING):
The UF School of Theatre and Dance is presenting The Cherry Orchard from
September 28-October 7 in the Constans Theatre next to the Reitz Union.
Student tickets are $9 and are available for purchase at the University
Box Office located in the Constans Theatre from 12:00-5:00pm, M-F or 45
minutes prior to curtain. Call (352) 392-1653 for information.

The Cherry Orchard was Russian playwright Anton Chechov's last play. The
tragi-comedy concerns an aristocratic Russian woman and her family as
they return to the family's estate, with its large and well-known cherry
orchard, just before it is auctioned to pay the mortgage. 
While presented with options to save the estate, the family essentially
does nothing and the play ends with the estate being sold and the family
leaving to the sound of the cherry orchard being cut down. The story
presents themes of cultural futility - both the futility of the
aristocracy to maintain its status and the futility of the bourgeoisie
to find meaning in its newfound materialism. In reflecting the
socio-economic forces at work in Russia at the turn of the 20th
century-including the rise of the middle class after the abolition of
serfdom in the mid-19th century and the sinking of the aristocracy-the
play reflects forces at work around the globe during that period.

15. EVENT: Vintage 20's Night Swing Dance (NEW POSTING):
It's 20's night with the Florida Swing Dancing Club, and you know what
that means: a dance full of swinging fringe dresses, bowler hats, tweed
suits, feathered headdresses, Charleston dancing, and loads of fun!
Don't worry if you've never danced before; we love beginners. There will
be beginner and intermediate lessons from 8:00-9:00pm, followed by a
dance complete with baked goods, door prizes, a strutting contest, jam
circles, and of course, your favorite 20's music!  You don't want to
miss it. Costumes encouraged but not required, don't fret.

It's all going down at the Unified Training Center, at the corner of 8th
Ave and University, from 8:00pm to midnight this Friday, September 28.

For more information, please visit our club website at
http://grove.ufl.edu/~swinguf/ or e-mail club President Mika
Turim-Nygren at [log in to unmask] . It don't mean a thing if it ain't got
