Eight students recently traveled to Savannah, GA, to present their scholarly and creative work at a national English honor society conference. See "News" for additional information.Led by Assistant Professor of Political Science Juris Pupcenoks, members of the College's UN chapter traveled to the United Nations in New York to receive briefings on peacekeeping efforts and other issues. Going global: Three SLA students recently won prestigious grants to pursue their studies abroad. See "News" for their stories. The new Marist Core features innovative First Year Seminars taught by faculty from a wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds. Here, professors of English, Philosophy, and Spanish confer about the course. Research in the field: A student in Professor Lisa Neilson's History of Baseball course takes a turn at bat in a game of Town Ball (a precursor to baseball). Texting, 16th-century style: Dr. John O'Neill, Head of Library at the Hispanic Society of America Museum, gives Marist students a firsthand look at classic Spanish literature.  Working at the Marist Insitute for Public Opinion with nationally renowned expert Dr. Lee Miringoff gives students hands-on political science experience. Food for thought: Students enjoy a farm-to-table meal as part of their investigation of ethical approaches to food in Dr. Joseph Campisi's Honors Ethics course.
