Weissman Center Offers Spring Series on Water Matters

  Students gathered at the Blanchard Ice Rink January 20 for a Chillbuster, a new weekly event held every Thursday (weather permitting) from 3 pm to 4 pm. The College provided warm drinks, treats, and skate rentals, and the Blanchard Lantern, a new outdoor fireplace, provided heat to keep the skaters warm in spite of frigid temperatures.

The long-planned spring series, Water Matters: Survival for the Twenty-First Century, sponsored by the Harriet L. and Paul M. Weissman Center for Leadership and the Liberal Arts, could not be more timely and appropriate. The devastating effects of South Asia's tsunami, as well as the deadly mudslides in Southern California, recently have shown us just how powerful -- and unpredictable -- water can be. The Weissman series, which will explore the political, environmental, and cultural meanings of water, includes art exhibitions, lectures, public conversations, and two symposia. more>
