News & Announcements

Miles to Manhattan... Last Friday's student-organized "Miles to Manhattan" fundraising campaign raised $5,605 for the American Red Cross. The goal was to raise $1,227.50 -- the number of miles it is from Gustavus to Manhattan. The money will provide relief to victims and their families.

Step Forward... Educational institutions throughout the nation are positioning faculty members as sources in the wake of the Sept. 11 "Attack on America." Some Gustavus faculty members have already graciously agreed to be sources for media interviews or to write opinion pieces, but opportunities continue and may for some time. All who would be willing to share their knowledge with the media are invited to come forward. Many thoughtful remarks were made at last Friday's teach-in and everyone who spoke is asked to consider sharing those thoughts further. For more information or to indicate a willingness to be a source, contact News Director Stacia Senne (x7510, ssenne@gustavus.edu).

  • A 10:30 a.m. Homecoming Parade that will wind through campus on Circle Drive, on the east side of the campus.

Nobel Conference Tickets Available... Past and future scientific discoveries, as well as the societal and ethical implications of these discoveries, are the focus of the Oct. 2-3 Nobel Conference® "The Second Nobel Century: What Is Still to Be Discovered?" A special tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Prizes, the annual Gustavus conference features a distinguished group of speakers, including 5 Nobel laureates, 2 highly regarded science writers, and the secretary general of the Swedish academy that awards 3 of the Nobel Prizes. The annual conference, sanctioned by the Nobel Foundation, is open to the public and lecture tickets are again free for all campus community members. Students may pick up their tickets at the Information Center, Campus Center. Faculty, staff, and administration members may pick up their tickets in the Office of Public Relations, Carlson Administration Building. The lectures will be simulcast in Lund Forum for any overflow audience. It will not be televised on campus via cable television.

Wireless Project... The Office of Information Technology again asks for employee and student volunteers who own portable computers to participate in a wireless networking pilot project for Fall Semester. Participants in the pilot program will be able to connect their portables to the Gustavus network and the Internet via wireless networking protocols in the library, dining room, and several outdoor areas.

GUSTAVUS TIDBITS:

From the Archives... Peter Anderson came to America in 1850 as the leader of a group of about 100 immigrants from Hassela, Sweden. In 1851, he and his family, together with 3 other families, founded the first permanent Lutheran settlement in Minnesota, at Chisago Lake in Center City. Eric Norelius kept diaries all the way from Hassela to Minnesota, 17 diaries in all. A copy of these diaries is stored in the library archives. Currently a Swedish television journalist working on a movie about the men's journey is visiting the archives.

To submit items (questions or answers) for consideration in this section, contact Stacia Senne (x7510 or ssenne@gustavus.edu).

IN THE MEDIA:

Here are some noteworthy Gustavus-related stories that recently appeared in print or broadcast media around the nation:
  • The Sept. 16 St. Paul Pioneer Press published an opinion/viewpoint column written by Karen Larson (anthropology and interdisciplinary studies). The page 28A article is titled "Adjusting to our changed world." Larson wrote the piece in the aftermath of last week's terrorist attacks.

Chris's son Marley attends college about 40 minutes from Manhattan.
  • An article in the Sept. 13 St. Peter Herald, "Shock waves stun St. Peter," mentioned the college's prayer service on Sept. 11 as well as the invitation to light candles in Christ Chapel and to sign the book of Hope and Concern in the Campus Center.
