Prof. Karen L. Wooley from Texas A&M University, the Peter Timms Lecturer, gave a fantastic talk! She was then presented with a small award by the late Peter’s wife, Liz Timms.

Breaking a sweat for BISC!

Bristol International Student Centre (or better known as BISC) is the home away from home for all international students. BISC is turning 40 this year, and lots of people are helping to raise funds for a building project at the BISC premises.

Kazu helped out at the Gala Fundraising Dinner on Saturday evening (and washed hundreds of dishes!), and Horatio ran the Bristol 10K on Sunday (in the impressive time of 47 minutes!).

Well done both, and thanks for your efforts!  Happy Birthday BISC!
