Jonathan Dees, Carrie Pucko, and Wendy Zomlefer received special invitations to share dinner on 9 November with the "sisters" of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority. Sorority members invite their favorite professors in appreciation of superior instruction and guidance. Eighteen faculty and ca. 60 ZTA members attended, and Plant Biology was the only department represented by more than one faculty member!
