New Faculty Luncheon-Advising, Holcombe Room (Academic)

Our last  New Faculty Orientation Lunch of the spring semester is on Tuesday, April 9, from 11:30 until 12:50 pm in the Holcombe Room of Burwell.  The topic for the meeting is advising. Please notice that we are starting 30 minutes later than usual.


Our topic for the luncheon will be a discussion of the advising process for first- and second-year students, and our guests will be Dr. Carol Wilson, Professor of English and Coordinator of Academic Advising, Ms. Elizabeth Rabb, Associate Athletics Director for Compliance/SWA and Mr. Richard Johnson, Director of Athletics. They will also be able to help answer questions about ways to advise students that you might have in your classes, including first-year students and those students who are struggling to succeed. There will be time for questions.


A little information on the advising process: Faculty, starting in their second or third year at the college, are typically asked to advise first year students for a period of up to two years; during that time, those students will take a wide range of classes, both major track and general education courses, leading to the declaration of a major no later than the end of their sophomore year (at which time the student is assigned a major advisor.)



This lunch series serves as a mentoring program for junior faculty but any faculty or staff member is welcome to attend. Lunches for faculty in their first and second year of employment are paid for by the Provostís Office; other faculty members who are attending can purchase lunch from the Faculty and Staff Dining Room or bring a bag lunch. Anyone who has a meeting at the 11:00 am hour is welcome to join us after their meeting concludes.

Art Exhibit: Graphic Solidarity: The Internationalist Outlook of the Cuban Revolution (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))

Graphic Solidarity: The Internationalist Outlook of the Cuban Revolution features posters produced in Cuba during the period following the revolution through the 1980s. The posters highlighted in this exhibition focus on Cubaís efforts to spread the messages of their revolution worldwide and to inspire others in the fight against oppression stemming from the legacy of imperialism and colonialism. Primarily published by the OSPAAAL organization based in Havana, these works helped to facilitate the internationalist outlook and message of the Cuban revolution through their inclusion in the Tricontinental Magazine which reached people in more than 60 countries worldwide.  The works in this exhibition are on loan from the collection of Lindsay Webster, Spartanburg, SC.  Curated by Katie McCorkle, this exhibition is a culmination of her year-long Art History and Government honors project.

Art Exhibit: Sacred and Secular: Netherlandish Baroque Paintings from Regional Collections, Richardson Family Art Museum (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))

Dynamic and theatrical, but also down-to-earth, moralizing, and sometimes comic.  Triumphant, grandiose, and propagandistic, and yet also intimate and inward.  All of these terms are applicable to the art of the European Baroque, the cultural epoch of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries which produced an unprecedented richness and variety in creative expression.  Complex and conflicting forces across the political, religious, economic, and social spheres of life account for this artistic abundance.  The Netherlands, a major center of artistic production during the Baroque period, was home to many of these contrasts and conflicts within its relatively small geographic boundaries along the northern coast of Europe.

These diverse cultural forces are evident, in varying ways and degrees, in a selection of paintings generously lent to Wofford College by the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery in Greenville, SC, the Columbia Museum of Art in Columbia, SC, and the Robicsek Family Collection in Charlotte, NC.
