Wooster magazine’s summer 2023 issue illustrates how off-campus study, courses, internships, and I.S. research expand students’ comprehension, perspective, and aptitude. The cover feature highlights an off-campus TREK program taking students from a course in the Rhetoric of Black Civil Rights to Alabama. Independent Study features include Katie Spence, Ryan Johnston, Hope Carmody, and Ferdawss Ihiri. More stories about experiential learning in action include a chemistry lab incorporating the study of art conservation, a Data Visualization course where students prepared visuals for a real client, and practical experiences in speech, language, and audiology careers. Oak Grove covers Commencement for the Class of ’23 with speaker Kurt Russell ’94, 2022 National Teacher of the Year, and includes a conversation about trends in study abroad with Candace Chenoweth, director of off-campus study and an Office Hours featurette with Christina Welsch, associate professor of the history of Britain and its empire. In addition to class notes, Tartan Ties features an author profile with Sheila Liming ’05, whose book, Hanging Out: The Radical Power of Killing Time, was highlighted in The New York Times. Sandeep Bhatia ’89, president of the Alumni Board, also shares what volunteering with Wooster means to him.
