From the President's Desk

I would like to thank the entire Gustavus community for yet another successful Nobel Conference! I have learned and come to appreciate over the past six years that it truly is a campus-wide effort to pull off an event like The Nobel Conference. This event is part of what makes Gustavus such a special place and we should all be very proud of the fact that our hard work reflects well not only on the Conference, but on the College as a whole.

I especially want to thank Dr. Chuck Niederriter and Dr. Steve Mellema for their leadership as Director and Chair of this year's conference. Dr. Niederriter has done an exceptional job in his position the past five years and has taken great care of the Conference as he now passes the torch on to our next Director, Dr. Scott Bur. I also want to thank all those who coordinated the logistics for the Conference and our faculty and students who hosted the presenters and helped coordinate the visits of our distinguished guests. Gusties Will Shine!

Safety Snips

Campus Fire Safety Month...The Minnesota State Fire Marshall's Office was recently on campus to film a Campus Fire Safety video that will be used as a resource for all Minnesota colleges and universities. Assisting with the video were Gustie students Summer Boettcher, Audi Dickey, Paget Pengelly and McCartney Renn. A dormitory fire drill was also captured in the footage as all the dorms practiced their evacuation procedures as part of State-wide and National Campus Fire Safety Month activities.

Campus fire safety is a serious issue. According to the National Fire Protection Association, more than 3,800 university housing fires occur each year in the United States, causing 5 deaths, 50 injuries and $26 million in property loss. There are various causes of campus fires, but the fundamental issue is general lack of knowledge about fire safety and prevention. Cooking is the leading cause of fires (over 83%), followed by arson, open flame, heating, and unintentional or careless behavior. Students can prepare for a safe new life away from home by following a few simple guidelines:

  • When cooking, stay in the kitchen area and pay attention to the cooking process. Leaving food cooking unattended, for even a minute, can be deadly. If a pan starts on fire, cover it with a lid and turn off the stove. Never throw water on a grease fire as it will spread the fire.
  • Never ignore fire alarms! Do not wait to see fire or smoke. If your keys and cell phone are close by, take them with as you evacuate and close your door behind you. Know the exit routes from your building and the designated evacuation area. Never go back into a building that is being evacuated. Your life is more important than your stuff!
  • Campus housing is equipped with smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and fire suppression sprinklers that are inspected routinely. If you live off-campus, inspect your smoke and carbon monoxide detector and make sure the battery is changed at least once a year. This little alarm can save your life.
  • Do not use candles or incense as they are a fire danger. Consider flameless candles that look and smell like real candles. Avoid overloading wall outlets and using extension cords. Consider use of a power strip.
  • Smoking is the leading cause of fire fatalities and not allowed in Campus Housing. If off-campus, never smoke if too tired or impaired. Always put your cigarette out completely. Cigarettes can smolder for hours and start a fire long after you go to sleep.
  • Alcohol consumption is often a factor in campus fire fatalities. Alcohol can impair judgment and hamper evacuation efforts. Assign an “event monitor” who stays unimpaired.
