Earth Day Spirit
When it comes to going green, Hopkins employees are a resourceful lot. Join the School of Medicine’s Leadership Initiative for the Environment (LIFE) on April 9 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Turner Concourse for a special Earth Day event, chock full of recycling tips. Earn a free raffle ticket by dropping off old electronics, batteries and printer cartridges. Info: The Hospital’s Green Initiative crew will celebrate Earth Day on April 21 at noon, with a one-mile walk around the East Baltimore campus. Then, on April 22 at noon in Hurd Hall, an as-yet unnamed speaker will talk about sustainability. On both days, tables will be set up from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. by the Outpatient Center escalators, where employees can drop off old cell phones, eyeglasses, alkaline batteries and toner cartridges.

Striking a Match
Once again, the nation’s fourth-year medical students have continued the time-honored ritual of gathering and opening official letters on Match Day to learn which residencies are theirs. At noon sharp on March 19, amid shrieks and gasps at Turner Concourse, 118 soon-to-be-physicians ripped open envelopes to learn their fates for the next three to six years. “It’s a chance to celebrate our students’ achievements,” says Tom Koenig, associate dean for student affairs. “Wherever they match, they’ll always be considered Hopkins’ own.”
