Greetings from Northern Minnesota where the summer weather has been not too hot, humid, or rainy. This class letter is going out a little earlier than usual. The plan from Luther is to get it mailed before Homecoming, October 26-28, rather than November. Along with the usual activities at Homecoming, this year two organizational milestones will be celebrated – the 50th anniversary of the Black Student Union and the 40th anniversary of the Nursing Department. Neither of these existed in our days at Luther, but they serve to remind us that change is inevitable and essential as Luther continues to seek ways to be attractive and relevant.
