News & Announcements

College Retains A3 Rating... Moody’s Investors Service recently affirmed the A3 long-term rating on Gustavus Adolphus College’s Revenue Bonds issued through the Minnesota Higher Education Facilities Authority. The Moody report detailed several financial strengths of the College which led to the favorable rating, including a stable market position due to steady enrollment and increasing admission applications, broader geographic recruitment, favorable cash flow generation and operating performance, and growth in financial resources. According to the Moody’s website, an A rating means an institution’s financial obligations are considered upper-medium grade and subject to low credit risk.

Grant News

A Major Instrumentation Gift for the Chemistry Department... Bill Soderlund and Soderlund Village Drug of St. Peter have made a major gift of $205,000 to the Department of Chemistry to enable the department to purchase a liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometer, to be used in instructional laboratories and in faculty/student research projects. The instrument helps to identify and quantify trace levels of organic compounds. It is particularly well-suited for investigating pesticides and the byproducts of their breakdown (both chemical via microorganisms in soils and waters, and with light in rivers and lakes). It is also the method of choice in nearly all studies of pharmaceutical metabolism and the analysis of impurities in medications. In the environmental field, this instrument helps analyze organic compounds at concentrations below the 1 part-per-trillion level and detection of some materials at levels of about 100 parts-per-quadrillion (that's 1 followed by 15 zeros...). In addition to making this gift, Soderlund Village Drug is one of the corporate sponsors of next week's Nobel Conference, “Heating Up: The Energy Debate.”

43rd Nobel Conference Begins Next Tuesday... There may be a couple of tickets still available for the Nobel Conference beginning next Tuesday morning, Oct. 2, at the Lund Center Arena ... but not many! We’re approaching the 6,000 mark in tickets given out and have been selling “overflow seating” tickets for Lund Center Forum since last week ... and the telephones in the Office of Marketing and Communication just keep on ringing. A full detailed schedule of the two-day conference can be viewed at gustavus.edu/nobelconference. 1997 Nobel laureate in physics Steven Chu opens the conference on Tuesday with a talk on “The World’s Energy Problem and What We Can Do about It,” and noted polar explorer Will Steger will present “The Front Lines of Global Warming - Will Steger’s Eyewitness Account” at the Nobel Conference Banquet on Wednesday evening. So, if you can’t find a seat in Lund Arena, there might be room for you in Alumni Hall, Wallenberg Auditorium, Lund Center Forum, or Olin 103 ... or tune in to Channel 8 or gustv.gac.edu.

Ceramicist to Present Demonstration and Lecture...

Tree Class, Part Two... The second tree class, titled "Tree: Growth, Wood Characteristics and Uses," will take place on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 9 a.m. to noon in Linnaeus Arboretum.

Fee is $12.00 for the public (pre-register at the St. Peter Community and Family Ed. office) and free for Gustavus faculty, staff, and students (pre-register by e-mailing shirley@gustavus.edu).

Off-Campus Events of Interest

'Stompin' At The Grand Terrace'... On Saturday, Sept. 29, at 7:30 p.m., jazz pianist and vocalist Carolyn Wilkins and poet and writer Philip Bryant (English) will pool their talents to perform an evening of jazz and poetry at the Arts Center of Saint Peter (315 S. Minnesota Avenue, St. Peter), as they present “Stompin’ at the Grand Terrace” a suite of music and poems that celebrate what some have called the only truly American art form, jazz. Wilkins has been an active participant in the Boston music scene for over 13 years as a performer, educator, and composer. She has released four critically acclaimed CDs of her original compositions and has composed music for The Search Goes On, an original musical performed at First Night 200 for the NPR adaptation of Langston Hughes’s Tell Your Mama. Bryant is a poet and author of Sermon On A Perfect Day and Blue Island. This is their second collaboration; the first produced “Southside Suite,” performed in Björling Recital Hall in 1996. Tickets are $7 adults, $6 members, and $5 students and are available at the Arts Center of Saint Peter. This activity is made possible by a grant provided by the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council from funds appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature and the McKnight Foundation, also with funds provided by Gustavus Adolphus College Writing Center and Cross Curriculum Programs.

Welsh for a Weekend... The Minnesota Gymanfa Ganu Association's fifth annual Welsh Weekend of Song is slated for Saturday, Sept. 29, and Sunday, Sept. 30. The weekend is highlighted by a concert of classical music in Jussi Björling Recital Hall on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. featuring pianist Nathan Knutson, with flutist David Ross, tenor soloist Ryan Perry, and collaborative pianist Esther Wang. Tickets for the Saturday evening concert are $12 for adults, $5 for students, and are available at the ticket center in Jackson Campus Center. On Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m., a Welsh gymanfa ganu (hymn sing) is scheduled at First Presbyterian Church in Mankato, at which the Minnesota Valley Chorus of Sweet Adelines will present several selections. There is no admission charge for the Sunday event; however, a free will offering to offset expenses will be taken. Sunday's hymn sing will be followed by a te bach (Welsh tea) complete with Welsh cakes. For those wishing to learn the Welsh pronunciations for the great Welsh hymns, an hour-long Welsh ysgol gan (singing school) will be held in Schaefer Fine Arts Rm. 214 on Saturday at 4 p.m.

A Moveable Feast... Artists from the greater St. Peter/Mankato area—including College community members Doug Nimmo (music) and Patricia Freiert (classics, emerita)—and several sponsoring eateries and galleries are opening their doors on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7, for the second annual "River Crossings Art Fair in Motion." The weekend event (10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and noon-5 p.m. on Sunday) offers the public an opportunity to visit up to 23 different locations to purchase one-of-a-kind fine art, tour artist studios, view demonstrations, attend workshops, and listen to poetry, music, and theater. More information is available at rivercrossingsart.org, or e-mail bridge@hickorytech.net.

Alum’s Film to Premiere at St. Peter’s Cinemagic Theater... The Haunting of North 3rd Street, a true-life docu-drama produced by Jon Hyers ’85 about the Conrad Hyers family’s nine-month experience of living in a haunted house in St. Peter, will premiere in St. Peter's Cinemagic Theater on Oct. 19 and run through Oct. 25. Conrad Hyers was a professor of religion at Gustavus from 1977 to 1997. While their new home was being built the fall of 1977, the Hyers resided for nine months in a 1850s-era home on North 3rd Street. During their stay, a range of unexplainable events happened that would lead many people to conclude the house was haunted. The movie, produced entirely on digital video, contains riveting interviews of family members recalling very vivid events each family member witnessed, and the filmmaker sets forth some possible explanations for the events. See the theater's website, www.cinemagictheatres.com, for show times.
