949 Church Street, Landisville, PA

11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.     Welcome Back Luncheon in the Dining Hall

Informal and fun. This isn’t the dining hall you remember – more variety, more healthy alternatives (if you want it!), and ice cream…and none of those big trays to lug around.  A relaxing and casual atmosphere to kick off the weekend.     

Benjamin Franklin Dining Hall                 

1:30 – 4:30 p.m.     Alumni College Presentations 

The Alumni College is a series of interesting and informative academic presentations highlighting the work of F&M faculty. This is a unique opportunity to sample current curriculum without the exams.

Professor Kollars' scholarship examines the innovative practices of U.S. soldiers in war and organizational responses to that creativity.

A presentation by Amelia Rauser, Ph.D., professor of art history, chair of art and art history 

The planned Benjamin & Susan Winter Visual Arts Center will redefine the south end of campus. Yes, its revolutionary shape will depart sharply from the campus’s red brick and gothic arches. But far more than an innovative, captivating new building, the center will complement the classic lines of Old Main, just as today’s study of the visual arts complements the classical methods and knowledge that underlie the liberal arts. Here, students will learn to exercise age-old, critical habits of mind in a global, 21st-century context.

2:30 – 3:30 p.m.     Foreign Policy and Oil

Bryan Stinchfield, Ph.D., associate professor of organization studies.

What is the effect of U.S. petroleum security on foreign policy?  On the other hand, we could also ask the reverse: What is the effect of U.S. foreign policy on petroleum security?  Responses to these questions depend on what we "see," and what  we "see" depends on our view of the world.  Not surprisingly, a liberal arts education helps us "see" all of this.

Fronefield Crawford, Ph.D., associate professor of physics and Weis College House don

When a star dies, it leaves behind an exotic remnant: a white dwarf, neutron star, or black hole. In this talk, Professor Crawford will provide a brief introduction to these three kinds of objects, then focus on radio pulsars, which are a particular kind of neutron star. Radio pulsars are among the most fascinating and unusual objects in the universe; they spin very rapidly, have huge magnetic and gravitational fields, and emit steady, clock-like radio pulses that are useful for a variety of scientific investigations. He'll finish by discussing some of the research on radio pulsars being conducted by F&M students who are using one of the world's largest telescopes (the Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico) for their work.
