President Jim Peterson '64 and Alumni Director Randall Stuckey '83 will be present to bring the latest news about the College. Jeff Jeremiason, chair of the 2007 Nobel Conference Heating up: the Energy Debate, will address issues about climate change, declining oil reserves, and new and advancing technologies, some of which are being researched and implemented at Gustavus.

He received a B.A. from Augustana College, Sioux Falls, S.D., and a master's and Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of Minnesota.
