Plot Synopsis
In 2028, OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. While its drones have long been used by the military overseas, their use is forbidden in American law enforcement. However, OmniCorp gets a golden opportunity to crack that market when Detroit cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is critically injured in the line of duty. By transforming Murphy into a cyborg, OmniCorp executives hope to rake in billions for their shareholders, but they forget one thing: There's still a man inside the machine.

The event takes place at Carnegie Science Center on Monday, February 1 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. Transportation provided by W&J Sustainability Committee and will depart W&J at 6:00 pm. Event is free.

W&J Food Recovery Network Chapter

Get Involved!
W&J students have organized an officially recognized chapter of the Food Recovery Network! The Food Recovery Network unites students on college campuses to fight food waste and hunger by recovering perishable food that would otherwise go to waste from their campuses and communities and donating it to people in need. W&J is partnering with the City Mission for this effort. Volunteers gather food from campus dining facilities and transport them to the City Mission kitchen. Participants may have an opportunity to attend a free FRN conference at the University of Maryland in April! To get involved here at W&J, email volunteer@washjeff.edu or sustainability@washjeff.edu.
