Balancing the Books members are students from the Whitman School of Management.

Reed will teach a mock lesson in business to the students beginning at 10 a.m. in the Shaffer Art Building’s Shemin Auditorium.
At 10:30 a.m., the students will participate in a science experiment led by Sam Sampere, physics department lab manager, in Room 500 of the Hall of Languages.
