Last YS of School Year... This is the last community newsletter of the 2007-08 academic year. The YS will resume publication on Thursday, Sept. 4. To announce events and information to the College community during the summer months, the Office of Marketing and Communication will publish The Summer Scoop monthly in June, July, and August.
Annual Employee Picnic... The annual all-employee picnic is scheduled for Tuesday, June 3, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the President's House. This year's gathering is billed as "A Farewell to Jim and Susan," honoring retiring President Jim Peterson and his wife, Susan. All community members are invited and encouraged to attend.
Advancement Candidates to Visit Campus... The search committee for the College's next vice president for institutional advancement has invited three finalist candidates to visit campus next month.
Incoming President Jack Ohle has freed his calendar to be on campus during the visits.
Each candidate will participate in facilitated open sessions designed to provide faculty, staff, and students the opportunity to get to know them, pose questions, and provide input. The sessions are scheduled as follows: Candidate No. 1 — Monday, June 9, 1-2 p.m., Linner Lounge; Candidate No. 2 — Tuesday, June 10, 1-2 p.m., Linner Lounge; Candidate No. 3 — Wednesday, June 11, 1-2 p.m., Heritage Room, Jackson Campus Center. As the candidates' arrival gets closer, their names and resumes will be made available to the campus community via a password-protected website.
Taking a New Look at Alumni Relations... A Presidential Task Force has been established to work for four months to examine alumni relations. Part of the work will be a major phone survey of 1,200 alumni inquiring about their satisfaction with their education, knowledge of college happenings, and general interest and engagement with Gustavus. The alumni body numbers nearly 25,000 and should be considered a major asset of the College and represent the outcome of the work education that happens while students are on campus. The goal of the task force is to create a 3-5 year strategic plan to increase the level of engagement from the largest number of alumni. The task force includes Leila Brammer (communication studies), Josh Carter ’03, Dan Currell ’94, Adam Eckhardt ’08, Gwen Freed (college relations), Teresa Harland ’94 (institutional advancement), Jeff Heggedahl ’87, Mariangela Maguire (provost's office), Jan Michaletz ’74, Randall Stuckey ’83 (alumni relations), Barb Larson Taylor ’93 (alumni relations), JoNes VanHecke ’88, and Ron White ’75.
Alumni Relations Launches New Website... In June the Alumni and Advancement Offices will receive a new online look with the much anticipated launch of a new website. The site uses the ActiveCampus software, which is a product of Datatel, the same software currently being employed by the Admission website. The advantage to this software is the compatibility with Datatel. For example, graduating seniors can log into the alumni site using their same e-mail username and password and the database synchs nightly with Datatel, which enables the site to target content based on alumni biographical information. All alumni will be receiving a username and password, which allows them access to an online alumni directory and a more dynamic career services website (a joint partnership between the Alumni Office and Career Center). Check out the new site the first part of June at www.gustavus.edu/alumni.
Garden Tour Driver Wanted... Arboretum staff are seeking one more van driver for the Linnaeus Arboretum Summer Solstice Garden Tour on Sunday, June 22. The tour will be leaving the Lind Interpretive Center at 10 a.m. to see two gardens in New Ulm and returning to Linnaeus Arboretum for refreshments and a short program around 3 p.m. Drivers will receive free tour admission, lunch, and refreshments. Drivers must be van-certified. Come and enjoy a great day of "Garden Hopping" and help the Arboretum. Contact Shirley Mellema at 933-6181 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Hosts Still Needed for Commencement Exercises... Hosts are still needed to assist at commencement exercises—the first to be held in the new stadium (weather permitting). To sign up, contact Dana Lamb at x7550 or email@example.com. Volunteers should arrive at Hollingsworth Field (or Lund Arena if inclement weather) by noon on Sunday, June 1. Hosts are welcome to stay for the ceremony itself or may leave immediately after it starts at 2 p.m.
Represent Gustavus at the 'Great Minnesota Get-Together' ... Gustavus is again planning a booth at the Minnesota State Fair, Aug. 21-Sept. 1, 2008, and you can help staff it. The booth, in the Education Building, needs to be covered by staff, faculty, student, and/or alumni volunteers from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Four-hour shifts are available for each day of the 12-day fair—9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1-5 p.m., and 5-9 p.m. Two or three people are needed for each shift. To sign up, call or e-mail Bob Neuman (x7681, firstname.lastname@example.org). Times will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Prior to the fair, training will be provided. Training meeting information will be announced at a later date.
Reading in Common Book Chosen... The Reading in Common selection committee has chosen its book for the fall. The book is Chinese Lessons: Five Classmates and the Story of the New China by John Pomfret. Pomfret, the Los Angeles bureau chief for the Washington Post and formerly the Post's Beijing bureau chief, will likely visit campus in September (though that has yet to be confirmed). The selection ties in with the 2008-09 Gustavus Global Outlook focus on China. Copies of the book will be available through the Book Mark.
Slate of 2008 Nobel Conference Presenters Is Complete... "Who Were the First Humans?” is the topic of the 44th annual Nobel Conference, to be held on October 7 and 8, 2008, at Lund Arena Center. The conference program will consider the full range of recent evidence gathered by population geneticists, anthropologists, paleoclimatologists, biologists, and evolutionary psychologists about the first modern humans—“Where did they come from, and how did they live?”—and what we may stand to learn from them about surviving the global challenges we face as a species today.
Invited participants include Svante Pääbo, director of the Max Plank Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany; Curtis Marean, professor, Institute of Human Origins, Arizona State University, Tempe; Dennis Stanford, curator of archaeology and chair of the Anthropology Department at the Natural Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; Robin Dunbar, director, Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom; J. Wentzel van Huyssteen, James I. McCord Professor of Theology and Science, Princeton Theological Seminary, New Jersey; and Marcus Feldman, director, Morrison Institute for Population and Resource Studies, Stanford University, California. Expanded biographies of these six presenters are available at gustavus.edu/nobelconference.
Tim Robinson (psychology), director of the Nobel Conference, will host his ninth and final conference this fall. Robinson was named director in 2000, succeeding longtime director Chaplain Richard Elvee. Chuck Niederriter (physics) will assume the directorship in June and host his first conference as director in October 2009; that conference will address water resources.
Diversity Progress Report Posted... In keeping with Gustavus’s strong commitment to diversity in its many forms, President Peterson has released a progress report on some key efforts on campus this academic year.

- Sunday, May 25 - Chaplain Rachel Larson

Wind Orchestra to Perform Season Finale... The Gustavus Wind Orchestra and Conductor Douglas Nimmo will present the Department of Music's season finale on Saturday, May 31, at 8 p.m. in Christ Chapel. Saturday's concert will feature historic and contemporary works as well as a euphonium soloist. It is free and open to the public.
Conductor Douglas Nimmo has served as director of bands at Gustavus since 1987 and completes twenty years as conductor of the ensembles with Saturday's concert. During his tenure with the band, he has conducted concerts across the United States and Europe. In January 1990, the Gustavus Band (now Wind Orchestra) was the first American ensemble invited to perform in a free East Berlin. Four years later, Nimmo led the ensemble on a ground-breaking tour through Central Europe with concerts in East Germany, Poland, the Czech and Slovak Republics, and Hungary. The wind orchestra retraced these steps in 2006 with a standing-room-only concert tour ending with a performance in Salzburg, Austria, on the 250th anniversary of the birth of Mozart.
College Authors Read Tomorrow Night... "Reading Day: A gathering of Gustavus Adolphus College poets and writers" will take place on Friday, May 23, starting at 7 p.m. at the Arts Center of Saint Peter (315 S.

Arts Center Membership Show Starts in Mid-June...

A reception for the exhibition will take place on Saturday, June 14, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the center.
John Holte (MCS) gave a talk titled "The Gambler's Ruin Online and Offline" at the spring meeting of the Mathematical Association of America-North Central Section at the College of St. Benedict, April 25-26. Also, in the election at the business meeting, he became president-elect of the section.
Al Behrends (college relations-fine arts programs) was asked to speak at the opening reception of the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council Juried Exhibition/15th Anniversary Celebration on May 9 at the Carnegie Art Center in Mankato. As a founding member of the council and a former board member, he was invited to speak on the 1993 founding of the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council. His presentation was titled "Attila the Hun and a Short History of Arts Advocacy."
