In the fall of 2010, the Marshall University College of Science presented, "Dine and Discover: The Ohio River Series," a new series of guest talks about interesting details about the Ohio River, its history and role in the surrounding communities. The series rotated area biologists, historians and authors in talks about the river in a casual atmosphere.
The following fall, in 2011, another series began, called "Dine and Discover: The Dynamic Community Series." This new series retained the same format at a new venue, The Black Sheep Burritos and Brews, and shifted the focus to include historical and current human dynamics (e.g., sociological, psychological, anthropological, historical, literature) that have help shaped the regional community or projections of how the community may develop in the near future.
The regional flavor is maintained, and the continual topic shift allows us to take advantage of the great talent and research being done at Marshall that relates to our region.
