What's News With WCP?
Alum Alan Kalish '81 has some thoughts on The Committee's latest thinking. And in real time on the Western campus, students remember a special classmate and gather for another community dinner. Also, plans are underway for the WCP 35th Reunion, September 19-21, 2008, to which ALL Westerners are invited. Information can be found on the MUAA website under Constituency Groups.
Who's Making News?
Western headliners and artists are in print and on the air. Since January 2007, Donna Shalala '62 has served on a presidential commission, Colin Fogarty '94 has won a broadcast award, and Mary DeJong Obuchowski '61 and Jordan Tate '03 have both published books.
Where's the Action?
With the WCAA, of course! Trustees lunched with international scholarship recipients in September, and in October, Western alums and friends enjoyed a performance by the African Children's Choir, this year's sponsored event on the MU Performing Arts program.
When Is Old News Good News?
An old Western photograph, ca. 1922, has a new look as a featured image on the 2007 Ohio Archives Month poster. It's just one of hundreds of intriguing "old things" waiting for a look-see in the Western College Memorial Archives.
