CHIMP TREATS: Students enrolled in the course PHIL-215 Humans, Animals and Nature gathered on May 1 to pack up treats to send to Chimp Haven, an independent, non-profit organization in Louisiana that provides lifetime care for chimpanzees who have been retired from medical research, the entertainment industry or are no longer wanted as pets. The students, pictured from left, Emilie Knight '10, Nicole Katz '09, Jace Haestad '10, Dominic Ireland '09, and Qianqian Lin '11, and peers, used their own meal points to purchase treats for the chimps.

On May 5, pictured from left, Tomi Uyehara '08, Jace Haestad '10, Moon Herrick '11, Jessie Haestad of Waterbury, Conn. and Karlen Shahinyan '10, and peers, gathered to package and ship the treats to the chimpanzee sanctuary. The effort was organized by the course's instructor, Lori Gruen, associate professor of philosophy, associate professor and chair of feminist, gender and sexuality studies. (Photos by Lori Gruen)
