Inside Gustavus (December 10, 2009)

Volume 42, Number 14

Faculty/Staff Activities

Roland Thorstensson (Scandinavian studies) has been named recipient of H.M. the King's Medal by HM Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and has been invited to the Royal Palace in Stockholm to receive the medal from the King and Queen on Jan. 28, 2010. H.M. the King's Medal (in Swedish, H.M. Konungens medalj, earlier known as the Hovmedaljen, or Court Medal), was created in 1814 and is awarded "to Swedish and foreign citizens for special merit and to officials of the Royal Court for long and faithful service."

In the Media

Here are some noteworthy Gustavus-related stories that recently appeared in print or broadcast media locally, regionally, or around the nation:

  • Students in Richard Leitch's Environmental Politics class and his First Term Seminar had letters to the editor published in area newspapers. First-year Kirstin Erickson had a letter to the editor regarding homelessness printed in the Sunday, Dec. 6, edition of the St. Cloud Times; Gustavus and her First Term Seminar were mentioned in the letter. Others were printed in USA Today (Dec. 4) and the St. Paul Pioneer Press (Dec. 3). Two students' letters were printed in the Mankato Free Press two weeks ago.
  • The Star Tribune printed a story on Friday, Dec. 4, about alum Eric Butorac '02 and the Minnesota Tennis Challenge event he organized in the Twin Cities. The story mentions Gustavus and quotes Butorac.
  • The video of Phil Wirtjes's half-court buzzer beater in the men's basketball team's victory over Concordia was shown on WCCO's Rosen's Sports Sunday show on Sunday, Dec. 6. The video was also shown on CNN, StarTribune.com, KansasCity.com (Kansas City Star), the Huffington Post, and several other websites including newsday.com, newscred.com, and gawkk.com.
  • The Mankato Free Press printed a story about the Festival of St. Lucia on the front page of its Sunday, Dec. 6, Currents section.

News & Announcements

Publication Reminder... With the end of fall semester and the holiday break, Inside Gustavus will not be published for two weeks following the Dec. 17 issue. After the Dec. 17 posting, the next Inside Gustavus will be posted on Jan. 7, 2010. Those wishing to announce any events or activities occurring between Dec. 18 and Jan. 7 would need to submit them by the end of the day on Tuesday, Dec. 15, in order to have them listed in the issue posted on Dec. 17.

Donations for the St. Peter Area Food Shelf... St Peter Area Food Shelf donations will again be accepted at this year's Support Staff Holiday Luncheon on Dec. 22. Bring any items you wish to donate with you to the luncheon—non-perishable food items, personal care items, and monetary donations are all appreciated.

TMs Continue Christmas Tree Project... The Tau Mu Tau sorority is hosting its second annual Christmas Tree Project. The sorority works with the Minnesota Valley Action Council (MVAC) to "adopt" St. Peter families and provide them with a Christmas that they otherwise might not be able to afford. Families are provided with a Christmas dinner and a few gifts, such as new clothes, winter gear, and fun, family-oriented toys. "We are hoping to not only give a sense of normalness during this turbulent time, but we are also hoping to give the gift of hope and faith," TMT project co-organizer Sarah Hoerr says. "We hope that by reaching out to those in need, we can restore the sense of joy and happiness during the Christmas season. But we cannot do this alone." The sorority is hoping to raise campus awareness about this project in hopes that students, faculty, and staff would be willing to donate funds to the project. 100% of the donations will go to the families in need. Since they are not sure of the families' specific wants and needs, sorority members are asking only for monetary donations at this time. For more information or to make a pledge, contact Sarah (shoerr).

Book Mark Sale... The annual Book Mark Christmas Sale continues through Friday, Dec. 18, during store hours (M-F 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Sat., Dec. 12, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. for Student Appreciation Day)—20 percent off most items!

Note Cards Available... The Office of Marketing and Communication now has a new supply of note cards imprinted with the College's official logo. They're designed with a top fold, and the inside is blank so that they may be used for thank-you notes, recruiting, invitations for departmental functions, handwritten correspondence to students or colleagues, etc. Each comes with an A2 envelope. Cost is $17.50 for 100 cards and envelopes, or $42.50 for 250 (singles are 20 cents each).

'A Mitten on Every Hand'... Join the Book Mark staff in making winter a little warmer for local needy kids. Between now and December 22, look for the "Mitten Drop" bushel basket at the front of the store and drop off any size new mittens or gloves (hand-knit varieties very welcome). Book Mark personnel will bundle up and deliver all donations to the Minnesota Valley Action Council (MVAC) just before Christmas. Be assured that your kindness will benefit local families needing a little extra warmth this season.

Don't Get Towed... The City of St. Peter reminds the campus community about its snow emergency ordinance: Snow emergencies will be declared before 5 p.m. and disseminated to local media. When it snows, check local media outlets for information or call the City Information Line at 934-0675. When a snow emergency is declared, there is NO PARKING on any of the posted SNOW EMERGENCY ROUTES for the entire 48-hour period (even if the street has been plowed curb-to-curb). Beginning at 11:59 p.m. on the day a snow emergency is declared, for two days (48 hours) there is NO PARKING on residential streets from midnight until 7 a.m. (again, even if the street has been plowed), and beginning at 2 a.m., for two days there is NO PARKING on downtown streets from 2 to 6 a.m. Vehicles parked in violation of the snow emergency ordinance will be ticketed (fined $15-50) AND towed at the owners' expense. For more information about this ordinance and which streets are considered snow emergency routes, click here to visit the City of St. Peter's website.

A Reminder about Picking Up Guest House Keys... Departments sending student workers to pick up Guest House keys need to be clear about where to pick up those keys. Occasionally, students have been going to the Guest House and even to the Lundgren House, unclear about where to go. Keys are checked out from the Church Relations Office, which is in the Retreat Center—this is the white house on the north side of campus closest to Sorensen Hall ("Complex"). The Church Relations Office, clearly marked, is to the right of the front door. The office is not "open" during Chapel.

CVR Reading/Discussion Groups Return... The CVR's J-Term Reading/Discussion Groups for faculty and staff are back! Join your colleagues for one or both of these weekly conversations to reflect together on your teaching, mentoring, life-work integration, and more. This year’s options include: (1) Mary Rose O’Reilley, The Garden at Night: Burnout and Breakdown in the Teaching Life, Friday afternoons, Jan. 8, 15, & 22, at 3 p.m. (location TBA; refreshments will be provided); and (2) David Whyte, The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America, every Thursday afternoon (Jan. 7, 14, 21, & 28) at 12:30 p.m. (location TBA; lunch included). Books will be provided, so please contact Amy in the CVR (phone x7169 or e-mail apehrson) by Monday, Dec. 21, to let us know that you’ll be joining us.

Interview Help Sought for Scholarship Days 2010... On Saturday, Feb. 27, and Saturday, March 6, 2010, the Office of Admission will hold its annual Scholarship Day competition. They are looking for faculty to help conduct interviews for the College's most prestigious academic scholarship, the President's Scholarship. If you are interested in helping out for one or both Saturdays, or part of either or both days, please contact Joy Reese at jreese2 or x7603.

In the Event of a School Closing or Delay... When College facilities will be closed or classes delayed or canceled during a work day due to inclement weather conditions, announcements will be made as soon as possible via campus communications as well as through the following media (updated list):

If the College makes the decision to close, individuals will be paid for regularly scheduled hours for that day. If the College remains open but individuals choose to leave early due to inclement weather, the time off should be taken as unpaid leave, vacation, or PTO time with supervisor approval. Factors that influence the College's decision to delay or cancel classes include the following: expected precipitation, road conditions, visibility, and wind-chill factor. Be aware that the College's decision to delay/cancel may differ from area K-12 schools; Gustavus is influenced by the needs of the more than 2,000 students who live in campus housing, as contrasted with different factors and conditions at K-12 schools (e.g., busing, young children, etc.).

Obituaries

  • Chester O. Johnson, professor emeritus of geology at the College, died Tuesday evening, Dec. 8. He was 95. A founder of the College’s geology department, Johnson taught at Gustavus from 1940 until 1978.
