Academics,

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED/POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

The Lake Erie College School of Education will host Seuss-athon, a celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, on Saturday, March 28 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. With “The Places You’ll Go” as this year’s theme, visitors will go all around campus for events, from a Book Fair at the Garfield Center, Story Stations in the James F. Lincoln Library and a Professional Storyteller in Morley Music Building. This event is family friendly for children of all ages and is free and open to the public. 

Students, faculty and staff from Lake Erie College have worked together to create this event, which is on its 3rd year. Dr. John Tedesco, Dean of the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, will run a slime and Oobleck creation station where children can make take-home science experiments. There will also be a book fair put together by the School of Education where the proceeds will go to the Salvation Army, or books can be purchased for donations to the Salvation Army for their Back to School Bash. Other stops around campus will include a cupcake station, book station, and prize station.

Afterwards, professional storyteller and performing artist, Robin Echols Cooper will perform between 12:30 p.m.-1:00 p.m. at the Helen Rockwell Morley Memorial Music Building. Robin is a well-known artist in Northeast Ohio and this will be her 2nd time performing at this event. She is also part of the Women in History Ohio and has affiliations with the National Association of Black Storytellers, The Cleveland Associate of Black Storytellers and Western Reserve Associate for the Preservation and Perpetuation of Storytelling. Robin has also performed regularly at Lake Erie College’s Storytelling Harvest.
