The Office of Alumni Affairs, in collaboration with the Office of the Provost, is proud to offer an Alumni Summer College for alumni, parents, and friends July 15-18.

Enjoy a three-day academic immersion on campus led by President Daniel H. Weiss; Diane Cole Ahl, Arthur J. ’55 and Barbara S. Rothkopf Professor of Art History; Jamila Bookwala, associate professor of psychology; David Brandes, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering; Dru Germanoski, Dr. Ervin R. VanArtsdalen ’35 Professor of Geology and Environmental Geosciences; and Robert I. Weiner, Thomas Roy and Lura Forrest Jones Professor of History.

Ten 90-minute course sessions will include “Art and Culture in the Age of the Crusades” and “Writing About the War in Vietnam” (Weiss), “Leonardo da Vinci: Beyond the Last Supper” and “From Boyz to Men: The Early Works of Michelangelo” (Ahl), “Successful Aging” and “Our Relationships, Our Health” (Bookwala), “River Form and Function and Their Ecological Impact” and “The World Water Crisis: New Challenges & Opportunities” (Brandes and Germanoski), and “The Nature and Impact of World War I” and “The Origins of World War II” (Weiner).

Lifelong learners, this is an opportunity to resume your education and be involved in the intellectual life on campus–without the fear of a pop quiz or blue book! It also provides wonderful opportunities for networking and socializing with alumni, faculty, staff, and parents.

Return to your alma mater to share the joys of intellectual challenge, engaging classmates, and – at the heart of it all – Lafayette’s outstanding faculty.
