Emerson Dining revamp

Emerson Dining Hall reopened on February 15 amid fanfare and fun. The revamped space, which boasts a beam signed by members of the Wheaton community, retains its traditional dark-wood panels but now has the bright, modern feel of an upscale cafè, with its sleek lighting fixtures and furnishings. The refresh is the final phase of renovations aimed at enhancing the dining experience at Wheaton.

 

Small wonders

Miniature installations of small sculptures cropped up all over campus this winter as part of a “Sculpture 1” assignment, in which students were required to create multiple castings of small sculptures in clay and then position them around campus.

Diversity at work

Career Services hosted “Diversified Workplace” in November, a panel discussion in which alums shared their perspectives on diversity and multiculturalism in the workplace. Participants included Valerie Tobia ’07, integrated behavioral health clinician at Family Health Center; Christina Lambert ’10, success coach at Bunker Hill Community College; Marlon Ramdehal ’03, associate director of programming at Year Up; Leykia “Kia” Brill ’06, associate provost of diversity at UMass-Amherst; and Amanda Nelson ’07, a pastor at Faith Lutheran Church.
