Celebrating Cancer Survivors... Cancer does not discriminate and knows no boundaries—Relay for Life is your chance to fight back! Join hundreds of Gustavus students and staff for the sixth annual Relay for Life on Friday evening, April 17, in Lund Center. Relay for Life is a fun-filled overnight event (7 p.m.-7 a.m.) designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money to help the American Cancer Society save lives, help those who have been touched by cancer, and empower individuals to fight back against this disease.
     During the Relay, teams will gather to take turns walking laps and to stand in solidarity with those fighting cancer. Each team will have at least one member walking on the track at all times. The evening will also feature performances by the Gustavus Choir, Lineus Comedy Troupe, the Gustavus Dance Company, Gustavus Dance Team, and several other student bands and ensembles. There will be a number of special activities throughout the night, including team relays, a cookie-eating-contest, and trivia. Prizes will be awarded for top fundraisers and winners of activities.
     In 2008 the Gustavus Relay for Life raised over $54,000 for the American Cancer Society ranking first in the Midwest division and fourth in the nation for dollars raised per capita. We are leading colleges our size in our fundraising and involvement with Relay for Life and hope to continue this tradition this year. Stop by Lund Center to see students and staff working together to fight cancer, go to relayforlife.org/gustavusadolphus to make a donation, or come walk any time between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. to honor your loved one(s) impacted by cancer.

She will be joined by Jane Coleman (nursing, emerita), an advanced-practice holistic nurse who recently completed her Ph.D. dissertation on Spring Forest Qigong, an ancient movement and meditation modality used to combat chronic pain.

E-mail Fell at nfell@gustavus.edu for more details.

Recently, he also attended the "Cradle of American Haiku" Festival in Mineral Point, Wis., one session of which centered on teaching haiku in schools and colleges.

Student News

Fifteen junior women are elected in the spring of each year to the Guild of St. Lucia, which was established in 1958 at the College to honor women who have achieved academic success, displayed leadership qualities, and provided service to the College and others. New Guild members announced earlier this week are Bria Aamot, Amara Berthelsen, Katherine DeSantis, Jokotola Edu, Maggie Hansvick, Pauline Jackson, Katelyn Johnson, Susan Kramer, Cathryn Nelson, Hayley O'Connell, Rebekah Schulz, Nina Serratore, Megan Thompson, Hannah Twiton, and Kristen Weller.

The Gustavus Jazz Lab Band, under the direction of Steve Wright (music), placed second in the Big Band division of the 42nd annual Eau Claire Jazz Festival on April 3. Four performers—Jonathan Monk, Andrew Haaheim, Erik Mahon, and Tom Oelfke—were singled out for Outstanding Performance awards. The Jazz Lab Band has participated in the festival around six times in the past 19 years and has always placed in the top three, competing this year against groups from St. Olaf, Iowa State University, UW-Superior, and UW-Whitewater, among others. The Jazz Lab Band toured during spring break to Minnesota, Illinois (Chicago) and Wisconsin. The Lab Band's Spring Concert is Saturday, April 18, at 7:30 p.m. in Björling Recital Hall.

The Gustavus Adolphus College Forensics Team participated in the 32nd  American Forensics Association National Individual Events Tournament (AFA-NIET) April 4-6 on the University of Akron campus, placing 18th in the nation out of 81 participating schools. Gustavus has now placed in the top 20 three consecutive years. Sophomore Phil Helt became the first Gustavus student to qualify two events for the quarterfinal round. Quarterfinalists (i.e., among the top 24 competitors in each event) were Helt, in Communication Analysis (110 total competitors) and After Dinner Speaking (131 total competitors); senior Tasha Carlson, in Prose Interpretation (155 total competitors); and first-year Chloe Radcliffe, in Program Oral Interpretation (139 total competitors).  

Three students—Annie Berger, Cat Osterhaus, and Amy Knutson—were selected by the Department of Health and Exercise Science to represent Gustavus in the American Association of Health Education's (AAHE) Case Study Competition at the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAPHERD) National Convention this year in Tampa. The competition allows teams of three students from a variety of institutions to display their ability to solve problems and communicate a health message. This year, the case study given to the students was to propose a conference program plan to coordinate a two-day conference in Wisconsin aimed at decreasing the rate of fall-related deaths and injuries among the senior population. The Gustavus team created a "virtual conference" in which speakers from all over the world would provide the training and was awarded second place in the nation for their plan. The team was advised by Karl Larson (HES).

Gustavus Tidbits

Curious Gustavus Connection... Q. What's the connection between Gustavus and the NCAA Div. I Men's Basketball Championship game played last Monday night?  A. Patrick Moody, who played in the game for North Carolina, is son of Mark Moody, a 1980 Gustavus grad. But that's not all: Isaiah Dahlman, who played in the game for Michigan State, is the son of Nate Dahlman, also a 1980 Gustie grad! (Thanks to Tim Kennedy for supplying that tidbit.)

Funding Opps

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations' weekly program or funding opportunity highlight:

  • Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI)... The Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program supports research for faculty members of predominately undergraduate institutions through the funding of 1) individual and collaborative research projects, 2) the purchase of shared-use research instrumentation, and 3) Research Opportunity Awards (ROA) for work with NSF-supported investigators at other institutions. Please note that Gustavus faculty have secured ROA support to supplement their sabbatical leave salary. All NSF directorates participate in the RUI activity. The specific objectives of the program are to support high-quality faculty/student research; to strengthen the research environment in academic departments that are oriented primarily toward undergraduate instruction; and to promote the integration of research and education. The three RUI programs are described at (http://www.nsf.gov/pubsys/ods/getpub.cfm?nsf00144). For further information on the RUI program, including deadline for the proposed research area, contact the NSF program director of the research program to which a proposal might be submitted. To locate the appropriate program officer, click on http://www.nsf.gov/staff/.

For more information on grants or proposal preparation, contact Bob Weisenfeld in the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (x7049 or bweis@gustavus.edu).
