Energy War... The College has joined the "National Campus Energy Challenge," a project of more than 30 youth organizations in the United States and Canada. Participating institutions will be competing during the month of February to see which campus can lower its energy use (both heating and electricity) most compared to a baseline of the previous three Februarys. The kickoff at Gustavus is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 31, at 12:30 p.m. in the Evelyn Young Dining Room, where students will be able to pick up energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs for their residence hall rooms and see how much energy they can generate by pedaling stationary bicycles. Throughout the month of February, members of th eGustavus community will be monitoring their energy consumption through a new, state-of-the-art website at gustavus.edu/energy. The website will be updated hourly and accurately monitors energy use in most buildings on campus. Students, staff, and faculty will be able to view a building's energy use in a 24-hour period and the estimated cost of that energy use.

SumoRobot Contest... The Robotics Workshop January Interim class will be staging a SumoRobot competition on Thursday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m. in Wallenberg Auditorium (Nobel Hall of Science). Students in the Robotics Workshop class have been building Lego sumo robots during the month of January with the goal of beating a robot competitor in a three-foot diameter sumo ring. Come and watch as the robots battle it out.

Enhancement Days Speaker to Address Unintentional Intolerance... The 2008 Employee Enhancement Days will be held Tuesday, Feb. 5, and Thursday, Feb. 7, in Alumni Hall. This annual event is open to all employees of the College. The featured speaker this year is Steve Robbins, an authority on diversity, inclusion, and cultural competence who has worked with institutions across the country including Microsoft, NASA, General Mills, and the Federal Reserve Bank. His interactive, humorous, and eye-opening presentation, "Unintentional Intolerance: What NICE People Need to Know," explores the hows and whys surrounding unintentional intolerance, and also gives the antidote for such behavior. Unintentional intolerance refers to the manner in which well-meaning people (and organizations) go about potentially excluding others, even when they want to include them. Research and experience tell us we all have biases we are often unaware of, or think little about. These biases influence our decision-making, behaviors, and attributions of others on a daily basis. Could we be making “bad” decisions and engaging in exclusive behavior without knowing?
     The complete schedule for Enhancement Days:
Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2008

  • 8:15 a.m. - Doors open
  • 8:30 a.m. - “Unintentional Intolerance: What NICE People Need to Know"; Steve Robbins, speaker (repeated at 1 p.m.)

  • 10:45 a.m. - Gustavus Leadership Initiative; Steve Bennett (student affairs) and Kathi Tunheim (economics and management), presenters (repeated at 3:15 p.m.)

Thursday, Feb. 7, 2008

  • 8:15 a.m. Doors open
  • 8:30 a.m. History of Gustavus; Kirk Beyer, presenter (repeated at 2:30 p.m.)
  • 9:45 a.m. 1998 Tornado video (repeated at 3:45 p.m.)
  • 10:30 a.m. TIAA-CREF Update - Lifecycle Funds and Gustavus micro site (repeated at 1:30 p.m.)

All sessions are in Alumni Hall. Free massages are offered on Thursday (a drawing for massages will be held after each presentation on Tuesday). Free "Break to Brush" kits will also be distributed on Thursday.

Reservations Still Being Accepted for Continuing Education Valentine's Day Dinner... You're invited to attend a Valentine’s Day party with a friend or a "dear heart" for good music, good company, and a good meal. The Continuing Education program has booked the Echo's, St. Peter’s own big band, for the party, but you need to reserve places by Jan. 28 at the St. Peter Community and Family Education desk in the Community Center. The event will be held in Alumni Hall starting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14. Cost is $44 per couple (or $22 if you're coming alone). Seating is limited, so reserve early! Parties desiring to share a table (6/table) should make that known when making their reservations. In the event of adverse weather, an alternate date of Feb. 28, 2008, has been established (same venue, same time). To check on the status of the party if the weather is questionable, call 933-6181 or check http://arboretum.blog.gustavus.edu.

Off-Campus Events of Interest

VINE Waffle Feed... "Dad's Belgian Waffle Feed" will be held from 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, at Trinity Lutheran Church in St. Peter. Tickets are $7 at the door, but $6 advance tickets are available from Lynn Boehne (x7686) in the Office of Admission. All proceeds benefit VINE Faith in Action, an interfaith volunteer caregiving program serving St. Peter and rural Nicollet County.

Join the St. Peter Community for the Winter Read... St. Peter Reads invites you to join the community in the Winter Read during Winterfest 2008. Award-winning Fairmont author Nathan Jorgenson will be coming to St. Peter to discuss his books, Waiting for White Horses and The Mulligan. He will be at the St. Peter Public Library for a reception and book signing at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, followed by a talk on both of the books at 7 p.m. just around the corner in Room 219 of the St. Peter Community Center.
     Waiting For White Horses was born as a short story, to give Jorgenson some closure for the loss of his father and of his best friend. The Mulligan, says the author, a practicing dentist in Fairmont, Minn., "simply took a few of the things that weigh on most middle-aged people and built them into something that might cause a successful person to leave their life behind and try to reclaim whatever it was that they felt they should have found in life. . . . I read that 90 percent of Americans are unhappy with their jobs, and 43 percent have failed at marriage. There seems to be a large audience for a story about someone questioning whether their life is justified, and whether there was any meaning to it all."
     The books for the St. Peter Reads program can be found to borrow or for sale at various businesses around town. Books are available for purchase at St. Peter Community & Family Education, the St. Peter Public Library, the Book Mark at Gustavus, the Treaty Site History Center, Nutter Clothing, Whiskey River Emporium, St. Peter Food Co-op, Swedish Kontur, and River Rock Coffee. Books are available for loan at the St. Peter Public Library, Econo-Foods Pharmacy, St. Peter Food Co-op, the St. Peter Herald, Whiskey River Emporium, and River Rock Coffee.

Extraordinary People

From January 18 to 20, Darrell Jodock (religion), President James Peterson, and Grady St. Dennis (church relations) attended the 2008 meeting of the Western Mission Network of the ELCA, held at the Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center in Carefree, Ariz. The theme of the meeting was "Discerning and Claiming our Vocation as Institutions, Agencies, and Ministries." The Western Mission Network is an association of ELCA seminaries, colleges, continuing education centers, synodicallly authorized education programs, and other similar groups in the western portion of the United States. The participants seek ways to partner together to provide life-long theological education for all the church members in regions 1, 2, and 3 (from Minnesota west and southwest). The focus of discussion this year was on the role of the colleges.
