Focusing on a theme of enlightenment, the features present in this season’s issue reflect upon the state of wisdom and insight present at the C of I, from the dynamic decision to hire two co-presidents — Jim Everett and Doug Brigham — to the addition of the newly opened Cruzen-Murray Library and the sense of engagement and purpose that it represents, as well as the importance and power of a liberal arts education in the 21st century.

“What is best for the College is the primary goal,” said Brigham in an interview for the issue’s cover story on his and Everett’s appointment to the office of president. “We are committed to getting the College to a spot where it deserves to be, rather than spending the next 20 years in a cutback mode.”

Other stories featured in this spring’s issue include updates on recently completed additions and renovations to Wolfe Field and Finney Hall, respectively, an interview with three-time NAIA All-American football player Nate Moore, and a photo spread featuring the recreation of the “Book Brigade” that completed the movement of books to the Cruzen-Murray Library, evoking the same historic feelings present 51 years ago when books were passed one by one into the N.L. Terteling Library.
