A Note from the Dean
Continuing our conversation
W
elcome to the second
edition of Foxtalk.
Before commenting
on some of the many
features you will f ind in this issue, I
would be remiss if I did not ref lect here
upon the unqualif ied success of the
magazine’s inaugural edition. Simply
stated: The buzz about Foxtalk is
electric.
We received many congratulato-
ry notes from alumni, students, and
friends of the School about the f irst is-
sue of Foxtalk. Around campus, fac-
ulty, staff, and senior administrators
praised Foxtalk for its creative look
and robust content. President Dennis
Murray said of Foxtalk: “It is a hand-
some magazine.” High praise indeed,
and we could not agree more.
We can publish such a high quality
and distinctive magazine because of
our talented and dedicated faculty, stu-
dents and staff. In particular, kudos
go to Dr. Keith Strudler and Dr. Lyn
Lepre for their vision, hard work and
persistence in seeing Foxtalk through to
publication.
This edition of Foxtalk builds on the
success of the inaugural issue, and as we
are fond of saying here, “think big or go
home.” We thought big.
Among the many features in this edi-
tion of Foxtalk you will f ind new fac-
ulty introductions; commentary about
the retirement of one of our most re-
spected colleagues; a discussion of
the new journalism curriculum; a de-
scription of our distinctive initiative,
“Marist in Manhattan”; news about
sports communication, including up-
dates on our ESPN and AP sports con-
nections; and informative pieces about
our students studying abroad, and in
particular, a focus on students in Spain
and London. This edition of Foxtalk
also spotlights our very own Mr. Art
Himmelberger, director of the Music
Program at Marist College. For many
alumni, students, faculty, and staff, Art
is the music program at Marist College.
Please contact us about your ideas
for future issues of Foxtalk. I also en-
courage you to send us updates on your
whereabouts and activities. We think
of Foxtalk as not so much a one-way
mass media channel, but rather, an op-
portunity to create an on-going and
meaningful dialogue among Marist
family members.
