About 130 students and parents will visit campus this weekend for Prologue 2002, a visitation weekend for African American and Hispanic American prospective students.

A number of different sectors of the college will be involved in the weekend’s events, from resident advisers to varsity athletics, from faculty and administrators to cultural programming.

Most of the expected 59 students and their parents will arrive Saturday in time for the opening event, a 1:30 p.m. welcome reception with President Arthur J. Rothkopf ’55 in Marquis Hall. They will watch the men’s basketball team play Navy and return to Marquis Hall from 6-8 p.m. for “Un Poco De Todo (A Little Bit of Everything),” an intercultural development reception and dinner. The day will conclude with a social event.

Sunday’s activities will include a presentation on “The Framework for Academic Success” organized by the Dean of Studies Office; an alumni luncheon; a student life panel; a faculty panel led by provost June Schlueter, featuring Curlee Holton, associate professor of art and director of the Experimental Printmaking Institute, Mary Roth, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, Dru Germanoski, professor and head of geology, and Robert Weiner, Thomas Roy and Lura Forrest Jones Professor of History; a presentation on the EXCEL Scholars, externship, and study abroad programs; a parent dinner featuring Richard Lawrence ’77, parent of Shanette Lawrence ’05; a student-directed play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf, featuring student actresses; and student discussions.
