Here are five things to put on your Cardinal & Gold radar this week:
1) This is a big week for high-profile campus lectures, including the Borlaug lecture featuring this year’s four World Food Prize laureates tonight in the Great Hall; Gloria Steinem’s “My Life on the Road” talk Tuesday in Stephens Auditorium, and World Bank president/Muscatine, Iowa native Jim Yong Kim’s presentation in the College of Business CEO speaker series Thursday in 1148 Gerdin. That’s just another week at ISU.
2) Tomorrow is the deadline to order official “Leave Your LegaCY” 2016 Homecoming apparel, which can be picked up Oct. 17-21, Oct. 28, or Oct. 29 at the ISU Alumni Center (sorry, items cannot be shipped). This year’s designs include a short-sleeved gray T-shirt, 3/4-sleeved black and white baseball shirt, or a black quarter-zip sweatshirt.
3) Speaking of deadlines and Homecoming, submit your entry for the 2016 Homecoming Parade (Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. in downtown Ames) by this Saturday, Oct. 15.
4) Coming soon, we hope: The Iowa State education experience will be available in the great state of Montana, thanks to the generosity of Rod French and his late wife, Connie. The Frenches provided $4.1 million to create the Rod and Connie French Conservation Education Camp, nestled in the remote and rugged Bitterroot Mountains west of Missoula, Mont.

5) The ISU Bacon Expo was Saturday. Were you there? If not, get a recap from the Iowa State Daily here.
Have a great week! Hook the Horns!
