Dear Friend of the College,
In a little more than two weeks, our students will return to campus to begin the spring 2012 semester, and with a new semester and new year come the promise of new beginnings and a fresh start.
Welcome to the January 2012 e-newsletter for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Inside A&S.
During 2012, the College proudly celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Department of Political Science as a standalone department. In upcoming issues of Inside A&S, you'll read a special series we're calling A 50-Year Journey and Legacy: The Evolution of the Study and Teaching of Political Science at Villanova. In the newsletter this spring, political science faculty will reflect on studying and teaching political science, and the contributions the department has made to the life of the College and University.
Also this spring, the Department of English proundly hosts its annual spring Literary Festival. Be sure to save the dates on your calendar now for these upcoming events, all of which take place at 7 p.m. in Connelly Center.
In addition, the University will host its annual Freedom School in observance of the memory and legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., on Thursday, Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. in Connelly Center. Come learn from Villanova staff, students, and faculty as they offer talks and discussions about how to extend the work and legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Learn more here. And at 7 p.m. in the Villanova Room of Connelly, Crystal Lucky, Ph.D., an associate professor of English and director of the Africana Studies Program, will deliver the the Martin Luther King, Jr., Celebration Keynote Lecture.
I thank you for your continued interest in the life of the College and wish you a very happy new year filled with many blessings.
