Add Your Voice to the Decision-Making Process on What Plays Do You Want to See Next Year

The theatre is a gathering place where a community comes to think together, to laugh together and to explore what it means to be human in this day and age. The Theatre Arts Department wants to hear what you think about they plays under consideration for production during the 2016-17 school year. Even if you have not had time to read the plays under consideration, come to the Dining Hall Conference Room on Tuesday, February 16, at 5:00 p.m., to hear students describe the plays they think will best serve the Earlham community and add your opinion to the decision-making process. A diversity of opinions from across campus is an essential part of this process, so please invite a friend or two to come with you. For more information and/or to add titles to the list of plays for consideration, send a note to Lynne Perkins Socey at <perkily@earlham.edu>.


Indiana Bicentennial Trivia Question of the Month

To celebrate Indiana’s Bicentennial this year, the Indiana Pathways Grant is sponsoring a monthly trivia contest for Earlham students. Each month there will be a new question and a new prize that you can enter to win by submitting your answer to the ballot box located in Runyan Center. The Indiana State Museum now fills more that 40,000 square feet in downtown Indianapolis, but got its start as a collection of minerals kept in a cabinet by the State Librarian. February’s question is: In what year was the collection started? February’s prize is a 2016 Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites Membership, which includes reciprocal benefits to more than 300 museums worldwide. For more information, contact Caitlin Fleenor at <fleenca@earlham.edu>.
