Social Change in the Media
Communication Studies Professor Josh Hawthorne and Communication Studies Professor Emeritus Lee McGaan ’69 will reflect on social change in the media including the impact on regional newspapers.
Barley Hops and Yeast … Oh My!
Chemistry Professor Brad Sturgeon will discuss DeNovo Beverage of Monmouth, a “pico” brewery startup. Brad will share how the science-business connection he began with the Monmouth Coffee Project in 2010 –which became Scots Roast – has evolved into a brewery partnership with Dr. Steve Murmann ’80. You will not only learn the science behind beer-making, but you will also get to try samples!
Kieft Summer Research Student Panel
Monmouth College students who conduct research on campus this summer won’t discover a cure for cancer or diabetes, or identify a new comet. But the experience gained by the students in this eight-week Kieft Summer Research Program will give them intensive hands-on experience with the type of instrumentation and research methods they will need to master should they continue on paths toward related fields of study. Hear from current students in the program, learn about their projects and engage in questions ranging from research methods to the best menu item in the cafeteria.
Q & A with Senior Staff
Wonder how the Monmouth College experience has changed since you were a student? Hear from senior staff: President Clarence R. Wyatt; Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty Mark Willhardt; Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students Laura Hutchinson; Special Assistant to the President for Institutional Research and Planning Christine Johnston; Vice President for Development & College Relations John Osterlund; Vice President for Enrollment Management and Communications Kisten English; Vice President for Finance and Business Richard Marshall; and Associate Vice President of Communications and Marketing Duane Bonifer. It is a great opportunity to ask questions that range from the specific to philosophical.
Politics Then and Now
Political junkies and Class of ’69 alumni Chet June and Bill Trent give us a look at how political discourse has changed – or has it? Chet will compare politics today to those during Andrew Jackson’s election and administration. Bill will give a history of political discourse over the past two-plus centuries. Be prepared for a lively discussion.
Led by Monmouth Chaplain the Rev. Dr. Teri M. Ott, this special service will pay a nostalgic tribute to chapel services of old, including familiar hymns. Recently departed classmates will be memorialized.
Additional videos will be made available soon.
