A screening of the documentary Amanda Knox
January 23, 2018, 7:00 p.m.
Wortmann Ballroom, Colket Center
This Netflix documentary details the many reasons why this international case entranced the world. Amanda Knox does an admirable job of detailing the crucial facts of this complex case and illuminates how being wrongfully convicted of murder could happen to anyone.
Truth Matters: A Conversation with Amanda Knox
January 24, 2018, 7:30 p.m
OLIN THEATER (due to the popularity of this event, the venue has changed)
Amanda Knox, a college student from Seattle, was studying in Italy when her roommate was brutally murdered. Knox spent the next four years in prison for a crime she did not commit. In Truth Matters, Knox will describe what it's like to be publicly vilified and wrongfully convicted, and what she's learned about truth-seeking in the process. Her story raises important issues not only about her own case, but about the larger question of wrongful convictions both abroad and in the American legal system.
Amanda Knox’s book, Waiting to Be Heard, will be available for purchase and autograph after her talk.
These events are free and open to the public. Tickets are not required.
Events sponsored by the Turk Pre-Law Program’s Gentry Locke Speaker Series, the Public Affairs Society, and Community Programs.
Writing Center tutors will be available to give class visits starting Wednesday, January 24th. Email the Writing Center at email@example.com to schedule a visit for your class.

The annual Junior Achievement Bowl-a-thon takes place the last two weekends in February (Roanoke College teams will bowl on 2/17, 2-5pm). All funds raised will support the educational programming of Junior Achievement SWVA with public school students locally. This would be a fun way to put together teams of students, faculty and/or staff - perhaps for some friendly interdepartmental competition between faculty & staff vs students - or departmental teams competing against each other. We're down to LAST CALL for bowling teams, if you're interested. Karen Hagele in Career Services is organizing a Roanoke College team(s) and has details, so please contact her ASAP. I hope you'll consider participating!
Additionally, there are many opportunities for faculty, staff and/or students to become involved in teaching some of the lessons for Junior Achievement....no experience required....all materials provided...an excellent service learning project for students. Some of our athletes already are doing this and having a great time. If you're interested, I can share details and options.
Thanks in advance for considering these opportunities!
