A Group from the Executive Ed program for Liaoning Higher Education Administrators will visit Northwestern University on 10/15 (Saturday) from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. We need a bunch of volunteers to guide the Liaoning group in NU. Please fill out the right form, if you are interested to be a volunteer. This is a great chance for the NU students, especially for those students from Liaoning, to meet and talk with the administrators. Last year, the same program had a good time on the campus.

Hi all,

For those of you who are interested in tennis, we just finished a tennis match last week. I know some of you are pretty interested in tennis but don't have a chance to start learning. Right now, we are planning a trip to Cincinnati forCincinnati Tennis Master Match during August 15 -18. So that we can have more opportunities to get together and enjoy tennis. 

Cincinnati is an important  series match of US Open. Almost all the big potatoes will show up in this match.  It is a very good chance for tennis-lovers to see their idols. 

On the men's side, all top 15 seeds are attending the match, including:
Nadal (1),
Djokovic (2),
Federer (3),
Murray (4),
Soderling (5)

On the women's side
Jankovic (2), 
Dementieva (3),
dementieva (6)
Li Na (11)
Sharapova (13)

We are planning a two-day trip to Cincinnati based on the tickets package. We are considering a ticket package of around $150. This package covers all matches during the two days. We can watch any matches during the two days. That means we are guaranteed to watch our favorite player's game and all top seeds' game. Personally, I highly recommend this package. 

Ticket price information is as follows:

The trip to Cincinnati is around 6 hours. We are gonna drive and spend one night there. So if you are interested in this opportunity, please contact me:
