The 2007 Dowell Lecture delivered by
best-selling author Amy Hill Hearth

The 2007 Dowell Lecture was delivered by Amy Hill Hearth, a New York Times best-selling author of the oral history story, Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years. Ms. Hearth spoke in Romita Auditorium of the Mooney Center on the evening of March 8, 2007. In her introduction of Ms. Hearth, Dr. Roblyn Rawlins, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Chair of the Women’s Studies Program of the School of Arts and Sciences, reminded the audience that March 8 was a fitting day for the lecture as it was also International Women’s Day, the global day that is set aside to connect all the women around the world and inspire them to achieve their full potential.


Architects from ikon.5 brief College Senate
on Wellness Center LEED Certification

Guest speakers at the College Senate's March meeting were Joseph Tattoni (pictured above) and Charles Maira, principal architects of ikon.5, the firm that designed the College's new Wellness Center. The two architects explained the Green Building/LEED Certification process and spoke about the special “green building” aspects of the Wellness Center. Charles Maira discussed the design and construction practices that are involved in making a “green building” possible and noted that what CNR is doing today will become common environmental practice in building construction in the future.

U R B A N  P L U N G E

The Urban Plunge, sponsored by the Office of Campus Ministry, took place during Spring Break, March 2007. The Urban Plunge is a service-learning experience during which four CNR students worked closely with professional educators at the Hale House Learning Center in Manhattan. The Learning Center serves children ages 6 weeks through 5 years, promoting intellectual, physical, social, emotional and language development. Pictured above are (l.-r.): Regina Burrus SN’10, Merrin George SAS’09, Erica Espinoza SAS’09 and Janette Fanio SN’07.

CNR students also attended another service-learning experience through Campus Ministry during Spring Break: the Rural Plunge. The Rural Plunge is an experience of service, simplicity, community, and reflection, completed in Naugatuck, West Virginia at the Big Laurel Learning Center. CNR volunteers provided day-care and tutored students, as well assisted with outdoor maintenance and environmental activities. The 2007 Rural Plungers are pictured here in front of a wood pile they chopped for the center [its main source of heat].

“As an all women’s college, CNR really helped me concentrate on my education. Through CNR’s internship contacts I was able to work in newsrooms and television stations to really understand the broadcasting industry.”

"Students who are committed to their intellectual, cultural, and social development are successful in the language department, which offers them the opportunity to become fluent in another language and literate in another culture.  Those who feel they lack oral proficiency can seek tutoring in French, Italian, or Spanish or enroll in Latin or ancient Greek, both of which are taught as literary not spoken languages."
