Guests, accompanied by President Steve Timmermans and representatives from the College’s development department, enjoyed a walking tour of campus and visited various classrooms for student presentations.
Presentations by faculty and students from the nursing and science departments included demonstrations of the nursing lab simulation manikins and information about current stem cell research projects in biology.
In the Art and Communication Center, guests had the opportunity to visit the graphic design lab, see students setting up a gallery display of senior art, and watch rehearsal for the theatre program’s upcoming spring play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Emily Smith ’04, campaign gifts manager, planned the Insiders’ Tour and anticipates it will be offered every year.
“The purpose of this tour was to have our students give our donors a ‘show and tell’ about what they are learning in their particular field,” said Smith. “It was such an inspiring evening, as our students shared their knowledge in a real and passionate way.”
