Inner strength, especially in times of great personal importance, is sometime elusive for us, but personal does not necessarily mean individual, for even as a collective, those things that touch us most pluck at that string of strength we keep in tune.  From our fellow rights activists in rural Africa, to ambitious peers in Asia, to a neighbor struggling with a mortgage, or to a fighting Olympic competitor representing us – we've all experienced moments when a single tremble has united us.  Stay and stand united. Inner strength doesn't come from being alone.

Honors Colloquium in the Fall!

The theme for the Fall 2010 Honors Colloquium is “first contact.”  The concept "first contact" encompasses all our first experiences with people, places, institutions, and things.  The basis for our discussions will be the Summer Reading Program selection, /The Sparrow/ by Mary Doria Russell.  In the Honors Colloquium, we will explore questions like what happens to human beings when they come in contact with something for the first time?  Why can a first contact have desirable or undesirable consequences?  What determines a consequence after a first encounter?  Through lectures, film documentaries, and discussion, the Honors Colloquium will explore "first contact" as it relates to how we encounter, experience, and understand something new.
