Larry SingellDear colleagues,

The fall semester has flown by, and the holidays are nearly upon us.

“Themester 2011: Making War, Making Peace” was a rousing success, with more than a hundred associated events, performances, classes, and visiting speakers.

The College is deeply grateful to the Themester 2011 faculty advisory committee for all its work: John Lucaites (Communication and Culture), chair of the committee, and members Maria Bucur-Deckard (History), Bob Ivie (Communication and Culture), Rich Miller (Poynter Center and Religious Studies) and Ron Osgood (Telecommunications), as well as the many staff and faculty who worked to organize events and host visitors for the third Themester. Please join me in congratulating them on a job well done.

College faculty and staff helped to bring such notable figures as former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, writer Tim O’Brien, political cartoonist Garry Trudeau, filmmaker John Sayles, and photographer Suzanne Opton, and created dozens of events that drew on the expertise of visiting scholars as well as our own faculty members. View a slideshow of some of the highlights of Themester.

Planning for Themester 2012 “Good Behavior, Bad Behavior: From Molecules to Morality” is under way. A new advisory committee is considering proposals for curriculum and co-curricular events and activity. I have every confidence that Themester 2012 will prove to be another success for the entire College.

My very warmest wishes to you and yours for a happy and safe holiday season. See you in 2012!

Larry D. Singell Jr.

Representing the College
Have you noticed the graphic element that has begun to show up on College websites and other places? It takes inspiration from the emblem for the College of Arts and Sciences that hangs in Bryan Hall and in the Tudor Room.  A paint brush and a compass flank an Ionic column to represent the arts and humanities; a retort flask, beakers and a microscope represent the sciences.
