"Stars and S'mores" is a family-friendly event for all members of the community. Guests can purchase ingredients for two s'mores for just $3, then spot planets, star clusters and other astronomical objects using the telescopes on the Planetarium's fifth floor observation deck.

Purchasing s'mores is not necessary to participate in stargazing, but donations are appreciated.

Visit the UWM Manfred Olson Planetarium website for directions, parking and weather information. (In the event of inclement weather on Aug. 27, there will be an indoor stargazing show at 8 p.m.)

Susana Munoz, Administrative Leadership, UW-Milwaukee, presents "Identity, Social Activism, and the Pursuit of Higher Education: The Journey Stories of Undocumented and Unafraid Community Activists."

Over the past 10 years, there has been a growing body of scholarship devoted to undocumented college students. The research shows most of them have very limited financial aid resources and institutional support, high resiliency for academic persistence, and heightened stress from navigating their legal issues. This presentation examines the process of how undocumented students "come out" and find meaning for their legal status within the context of higher education and social activism.

Free and open to the public in the UWM Libraries' American Geographical Society Library.

Sponsored by the UWM Latin America, Caribbean and U.S. Latino Studies Program.
