ANNOUNCEMENTS

Next Tuesday, Oct. 31, promises to be an extraordinary day in the life of Luther College. The date marks the 500th anniversary of the moment when our namesake, Martin Luther, launched the reformation movement that, quite literally, changed the world. At Luther, we are honoring and exploring the impact of this movement with a full-day symposium—"The Reformation of Everything, 1517-2017"—and I encourage all students, faculty and staff to take full advantage of the exciting events that are planned.

A full schedule of sessions is available here. To assist with your planning, here are the important times to note:

9-10 a.m. Keynote: “Why the Reformation Still Matters” by visiting scholar Brad Gregory (CFL)
10-10:30 a.m. Exhibition and reception (CFL lobby)
10:30 a.m.-noon Symposium sessions (see program for topics and locations)
1:30-3 p.m. Symposium sessions (see program for topics and locations)
7:30-9 p.m. Premiere of the "Reformation Cantata," composed by Luther alumni and student composers

Classes have been canceled for the day to enable participation by all students and faculty. Offices may close for periods during the day to allow all staff to participate as well.

I want to thank Professor Robert Christman, chair, and the members of the planning committee for their inspired leadership in planning and coordinating our commemoration. Please join me in expressing our thanks by joining us at the symposium events.

I look forward to seeing you there!

–  President Carlson

New at luther.edu

Cole Puffer '15, a student at the University of Minnesota-Duluth medical school, talks about the benefits of obtaining a liberal arts education while preparing for medical school. Puffer says it was important to his scientific education to study topics such as music, philosophy, religion, literature and art. "Those areas give value, direction and purpose to the study of biology and allow professionals like me to effectively communicate findings to those outside of a scientific discipline," he says.
