In the Media

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

  • Ray Thrower (Campus Safety) was interviewed for an article appearing on Jan. 18 in Security Director News, the online newsletter for security practitioners. The article detailed Gustavus's switch to an online emergency response system, prompted in part by lessons learned from the 1998 tornado.
  • The January 2011 issue of Metro Lutheran newspaper, currently available, contains a two-page interview with Darrell Jodock (religion). The article, by former editor Michael Sherer, is titled "Lutheran college professor offers insights: Christians and Jews Building Connections." It appears on pages 10-11 and includes a photo.

Anyone who has suggested additions for this list, suggestions for potential future media stories, or interest in being a media source should contact Marketing and Communication (x7520 or ga_news@gustavus.edu).
