As students emptied their dorms or apartments last week, some for the last time, there were plenty of items they didn’t want to take with them.

Heidi Fencl’s introduction during her March 5 After Thoughts address was perhaps not what attendees at the popular UW-Green Bay program are accustomed to hearing. “If you came wanting to know, what is dark energy?, we’re done,” Fencl said with a smile. “Talk’s over. We don’t know.”
