News & Announcements

Alert the Post Office... Any department employing students this summer is asked to provide a list of student employee names to Naomi Quiram at by May 15. Doing so will ensure continuous delivery of the student's mail on campus; failure to do so may result in mail being forwarded to the student's home address. All students remaining on campus will keep their current post office box assignments. Student employee mail will not be forwarded to the department in which they work. Questions may be directed to Quiram at x7599.

Looking for Art? The Art Studio Senior Exhibition, being held in the Hillstrom Museum of Art, is a time when campus community members might consider buying art for their offices or departments. Numerous times throughout the year, faculty and staff ask the art department if there is any art available for display in their respective work areas. The art department does not have art work available to loan out. The student work is reasonably priced and purchasing it would show support and provide work areas with an enrichment that may be enjoyed for years. See the Honors Day schedule in Upcoming Events for more information about the exhibit.

Macbeth to Close the Theatre Season... William Shakespeare's Macbeth will be presented May 10-13 in Anderson Theatre. This final mainstage performance of the Gustavus theatre season is directed by Amy Seham and runs at 8 p.m. May 10-12 and 2 p.m. May 12-13. To develop the supernatural themes of the play, Seham enlisted the help of Beth Peterson, artistic associate of In The Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre of Minneapolis. According to Seham, large puppets of witches, birds, and other occurrences bring out "the uniquely wicked world of 'the Scottish Play'." These puppets, along with technical director Terena Wilken's stage design and Andrew Vorder Brugge's choreographed sword fights, set the stage for the evil darkness Shakespeare created with Macbeth. Tickets are available at the Information Center in the Campus Center.

The Nicollet County Historical Society (NCHS) lecture "Searching for the Treaty Rock" by Minnesota State University-Mankato history professor William Lass will be held at 2 p.m. May 6 at the Treaty Site History Center in St. Peter.

Here are some noteworthy Gustavus-related stories that recently appeared in print or broadcast media around the nation:
  • A May 1 Star Tribune of Minneapolis article featured Steve Wilkinson (tennis) and was titled "Wilkinson keeps his focus at Gustavus." The article was on page C2.
  • The April 29 Star Tribune of Minneapolis "Metro week in preview" section included an announcement of Gustavus' 21st annual MAYDAY! Peace Conference. Among other things, the news brief indicated that Winona LaDuke would speak and that more information could be found on the College's Web site. Similar MAYDAY! Conference announcements appeared in other media, including the April 26 St. Peter Herald and Free Press of Mankato.
  • The April 26 St. Peter Herald included a feature on the Gustavus Kid Link program, a college-junior high mentoring program for St. Peter middle school female students. The page 9A "Kid Link brings teens, Gusties together" article and photograph explained the community service program and quoted students Stephanie Flinn and Sara Imholte. Natalie Ruter's "So Be It" column on page 4A, in the same issue, also featured Flinn and Imholte's creation.
