News & Announcements

Upcoming Holiday... Good Friday, March 21, 2008, is a one of the College's official holidays. "All regular full-time employees and regular part-time employees who have completed one year of continuous service are eligible for up to eight hours of holiday pay for each holiday based on the number of hours regularly scheduled to work, provided the employee concerned must work the scheduled work day before and the scheduled work day following the holiday, unless on an approved paid leave of absence."

Health and Wellness Working Group Forming... Co-chairs Jackie Alvarez (Counseling Center), Kari Eckheart (HES and GHP), and Karl Larson (HES) announce the formation of a new campus working group that will further develop the strategic initiative on health and wellness. Mary Morton (academic affairs) and Hank Toutain (student affairs) have given the group the charge to be bold in its thinking and to "work to create strong recommendations that will integrate wellness and health throughout our academic and co-curricular programs."  The group will also develop and evaluate strategies to facilitate the health and well-being of community members across the College. Its first meeting will be held Thursday, April 3, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Heritage Banquet Room. All members of the community are welcome to participate. If you are interested in being part of this working group, please contact any of the co-chairs: jalvarez@gustavus.edu, keckheart@gustavus.edu, or klarson3@gustavus.edu.

Leadership and Service Award Nominations... Nominations for the 2007-08 Paul Magnuson Student Leadership and Service Awards are due to the Dean of Students' Office by Tuesday, April 1. Nomination forms are available at the Dean of Students' Office or at the Student Activities Desk. The Magnuson Awards were established in 1991 to recognize leadership and service contributions made by current Gustavus students. The awards recognize outstanding student-planned events, organizations, or individual expressions of leadership by students. Contact Assistant Dean of Students Steve Bennett (sbennett@gustavus.edu or x7739) if you have any questions.

Turn Your Lights Off... It started with a question: How can people be inspired to take action on climate change? The answer: Ask the people of Sydney to turn off their lights for one hour. On March 31, 2007, 2.2 million people and 2,100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour—Earth Hour. This year, Chicago, Copenhagen, Sydney, Tel Aviv, Toronto, and other cities will switch off the lights at 8 p.m., Saturday, March 29, 2008, for one hour. Over 131,000 individuals have pledged to do the same. You can do it, too, wherever you are! It's only an hour, and you will be making a difference. For more information, go to www.earthhour.org/ or www.earthhourus.org/, or call Edi Thorstensson at x7554.

Music Festivals on Campus during Break... Two music festivals will use the Schaefer Fine Arts facilities during spring break. On Wednesday, March 26, 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m., the local regional solo and small ensemble contest will be held in the music and communications studies departments. This festival has used Gustavus as its primary site since the fine arts center was opened and annually brings 150-200 student musicians to the campus. St. Peter High School Band Director Jim Siewert is managing the event. On Saturday and Sunday, March 29 and 30, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., the 2008 Bernice Jones Music Festival will be held in Schaefer Fine Arts Center. Young musicians from throughout the region who study with private teachers will be on campus for the event. The contest is Saturday and the festival recital will be held on Sunday afternoon in Björling Recital Hall. The time for that recital is not yet set. Bonnie Jorgensen and Rebekah Richards (music, Lab School) will manage this event.

YS Reminder... The Yellow Sheet will not be published on Thursday, March 27 (during Spring Break). Publication resumes on April 3.

     The Rydell Professorship at Gustavus Adolphus College is a scholar-in-residence program designed to bring Nobel laureates, Nobel Conference presenters, and similarly distinguished scholars and scientists to the campus as catalysts for enhanced learning and teaching. It was established in 1993 by the late Dr. Robert Rydell and his wife, Dr. Susan Rydell, of Minnetonka, Minn., "to give students the opportunity to learn from and interact with leading scholars."

It includes the Dmitri Schostakovich Festive Overture and a Sousa march, Easter Morning on the White House Lawn, among others. The program concludes with a performance of The Death Tree from composer David Holsinger's three-movement Easter Symphony.

Jorgensen, who accompanied the ensemble on its spring tour, will join them on stage as vocalist for The Death Tree.

Helena Karlsson and Roland Thorstensson (Scandinavian studies) recently attended the 98th annual conference of the Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study (SASS), this year hosted by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.

Philosophy major Rhea Muchalla presented her paper, "Colliding Coalitions," an exploration of the theories of Jane Addams and Chandra Mohanty, at the National Black Graduate Student Conference in Chicago. She was one of only two undergraduate presenters at the conference.

A dance piece from Gustavus Adolphus College is one of three entries from the American College Dance Festival Association’s (ACDFA) North-Central Regional Conference selected by adjudicators to be performed at the biennial ACDFA National College Dance Festival in New York City in June. The work is also the region’s nominee for the national ACDFA/Dance Magazine Award for outstanding student performance. At the conference, Gustavus entered two works, and Vigorous Incubation, choreographed by Visiting Instructor of Dance Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner, was selected as one of three works (from among 41 representing 33 schools) to be performed at the national festival. Seven student dancers perform in the work: senior Britta Peterson; juniors Katie Jensen and Nikki Rusinko; and sophomores Marissa Augustin, Sarah Jabar, Katelyn Pedersen, and Nina Serratore. North-Central regional officials also selected Vigorous Incubation as the region’s nominee for the national organization’s ACDFA/Dance Magazine Award for outstanding student performance, which will be announced at the national festival in June.
