place, and sustenance for our journeys.

We are, of course, a loving and appreciative and growing group of
seekers, who would love to hear you play whatever instrument you have
the gift of playing. Sky is the limit. We meet every Thursday in the

REMINDER: Multicultural Festival - Friday, Feb. 3
-------------------------------------
Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

This is a reminder that you are invited to a celebration of the
diversity of cultures that is ANTS! You are further invited to bring
something to share that represents who you are and where you come from.
We already have some interesting things lined up--so add your talent and
culture to them!

When? Friday, February 3, 6:00 p.m.
Where? Peck Room

This event is being hosted by the Dean of Students Office and the
International Students on campus. We hope you will bring music, poetry,
art, food or anything else to share that says something about who you
are and where you're from! Please let me know if you plan to
perform/read something so that I can put you on the program.

We will have a variety of food from different cultures, both what you
might bring to share and food that is purchased. So come and learn
about the cultures we all represent, share something with your
community, and enjoy a meal together. I will be extending a special
invitation to the 38 new students who are joining the ANTS community
this spring, so please be prepared to welcome new colleagues.

I hope to see many of you there,

Nancy

Dr. Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community Life
