Still Looking for Ushers... Hosts are still needed for Commencement on Sunday, May 31. Volunteers would need to arrive at the stadium by noon (assuming the weather is cooperative; at Lund Arena if it's rainy or blustery) and stay at least until the ceremony starts at 2 p.m. A few people are needed to stay through the ceremony, but if you need to leave, we would still welcome your help at the beginning. To volunteer or for more details, contact Dana Lamb at dlamb@gustavus.edu.

Commission Recommendations Online... The eight task forces of Commission Gustavus 150 have submitted 439 recommendations to the Gustavus Board of Trustees as a result of their deliberations during the past six months. These recommendations are now available for faculty, staff, students, and alumni to view and to provide input on the level of importance of each recommendation at gustavus.edu/150survey/. The Board will meet in August to prioritize the recommendations. Input will significantly help the Board plan for the College’s future advancement. To learn more about Commission Gustavus 150, go to CommissionGustavus150.org.

Looking for Legos... The Starfish Project, a grassroots community service program providing support for both the Steenkamp Primary School in Namibia and also an orphanage located close to the school, has been asked if used Legos building blocks could be sent to the orphanage. A collection box has been placed in the Community Service Center in the Johnson Student Union.

If you have questions, please contact Lois Peterson (art & art history) at 933-7378.
