Grad Students Explore Chanticleer and Baldwin’s Book Barn

The hurricane rains held off on Saturday, September 27, as Arcadia students in The Philadelphia Seminar course gathered outside Chanticleer Garden in Wayne, Pa.

“Garden architecture is one of the oldest forms of humanities,” says Dr. Richard Wertime, Professor of English and Director of Graduate Studies in English and the Humanities. “It’s a deeply humanistic enterprise.”

Chanticleer, which is French for rooster, is a sprawling 30-acre pleasure garden filled with more than 7,000 species of plants. Once the estate of Christine and Adolph Rosengarten Sr., Chanticleer was opened to the public in 1993. Today, visitors can marvel at the lush foliage and intricate gardens, enjoy picnicking among plants like banana, eucalyptus and bamboo, or find a peaceful place to read. Read more.

What Let Faculty Out of the Box?

The answer is the new Undergraduate Curriculum—and the new University Seminars, an entirely new type of course, often team-taught, that crosses disciplines and offers evolving topics each semester. In the seminars Arcadia professors explore their passions and help students to make vital intellectual connections. The seminars are designed to make connections among disciplines and between scholarly ideas and the world beyond the classroom. They are a showcase of integrative learning at Arcadia. See the descriptions of the University Seminars, including topics such as “Born Digital: Voices of the Net Generation,” “C.S. Lewis and Christian Fiction,” “Politics and Poetics (Or What Hip-Hop Was Supposed to Be)” and more.

A significant slate of University Seminars is being offered for the first time in Spring ’09 semester. University Seminars are open to all undergraduates. Students under the previous General Education program may take University Seminars as electives and may, when appropriate, petition the Undergraduate Studies Office to request that a University Seminar count toward a General Education requirement. Students under the new Undergraduate Curriculum Requirements may take University Seminars any time after the completion of their First-Year Seminar. Many of the University Seminars also meet major and/or minor requirements. Students should consult their academic advisers.

Glenside-based Global Connections Experience—‘Inside/Out’

During Spring 2009, the Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice Department will sponsor its third “Inside/Out” course at the House of Corrections on State Road in Philadelphia. The course’s students will include 12 “outside” Arcadia Students and 12 “inside” students from the House of Corrections. The class will meet on Friday mornings. Applications are due Oct. 23.

Junior and senior students interested in participating in the class can pick up an application from Dr. John Noakes, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, in Easton Hall 337. (Or click here.) Information on the course and the Inside/Out program can be found on the Criminal Justice bulletin board on the third floor of Easton Hall. Participation in the course is by permission of the department only. Students will be selected for participation based on their academic interests and achievement, maturity, and career plans. Applications are due Oct. 23 to Noakes.

The course, designed for juniors and seniors, will carry 6 credits and will include a 2-credit Global Connections Reflection to take place separate from the class meetings. This course also is an example of a Glenside-based course that fulfills the Global Connections Experience requirement for undergraduate students entering Fall 2008 and after. See Global Connections Experience in the new Undergraduate Curriculum.)

Global Connections Experience: Abroad, Away, Across Cultures

Arcadia student in IndiaFor students who entered Arcadia this fall, the Global Connections Experience, a new part of the Undergraduate Curriculum, can be fulfilled in the following different ways:

"We're especially excited to have these Global Connections Experience opportunities at other colleges across the country for students to be able to explore cross-cultural differences and local/global interconnections and continue to pay Arcadia tuition. In addition to these exchanges, we also have great opportunities for students to have Global Connections Experiences without leaving town. Combined with the wonderful study abroad options we have, our students have amazing opportunities to explore local communities, other regions of the country and the world,” says Dr. Ellen Skilton-Sylvester, Associate Professor of Education/Coordinator of ESL Programs Director of Global Connections.

The Global Connections Experience and Reflection provide Arcadia students the opportunity to explore new places and cultures in a sustained cross-cultural experience. Students take a new Global Connections Reflection course during their experience. (See the new heading “Global Connections” in the course schedule.)

Trading Places: ANAC Launches Student Exchange

ANAC logoThe New American Colleges and Universities (ANAC) has launched the ANAC Student Exchange, an innovative program that allows students to spend a semester at one of 13 colleges and universities nationwide. All participating campuses, including Arcadia University, are ANAC members with a history of intercollegiate collaboration and a shared commitment to the integration of liberal arts, professional studies, and civic responsibility.

Through the Student Exchange, students are able to take courses not currently offered on their home campuses, experience a new culture or geographical location, or perform internships that are available in specific locales, such as New York City and Washington, DC. Experiencing another culture and completing an internship or service learning project are frequently general education requirements at ANAC institutions, and two of the programs—a semester in service at Elon University and a bite of the Big Apple at Wagner College—fulfill Arcadia’s new Undergraduate Curriculum Global Connections Experience. The deadline for both is in early November. Interested students should contact Dr. Ellen Skilton-Sylvester, Associate Professor of Education/Coordinator of ESL Programs Director of Global Connections, at 215-572-2117.

A complete list of programs is available online. Arcadia’s Domestic Exchange program, open to students from other institutions, is called the “Arcadia Philadelphia Semester” and includes three University Seminars and a Global Connections Reflection online course. Read more about the program here.

English Alum Writes About Simple Times of Childhood

East Texas Garden of VersesCarolyn Cochran '56 doesn’t let her vision problems stop her from helping others to peek into the past, particularly her childhood in east Texas, “a time when kids could be kids, adults could be trusted and it was safe to walk to and play in the park unsupervised,” says her Web site www.carolyncochrancreations.com. Cochran earned a B.A. in English from Arcadia, and she invites Arcadia alumni to leave a note and read from her latest book, East Texas Garden of Verses.

The Bugs of My Youth: East Texas from 1935 to 1946 provides insight into her work: “Before AC, TV, and DDT, I played in Mother's flowerbed. Neighborhood kids joined me. We dug up earthworms, Doodle bugs, lady bugs, and ants. We chased and dropped them down each other's back. We ran and struggled to be free. We rolled in the dirt to stop painful stings. We dug up wiggling earthworms and watched them crawl in our hands. They raised their heads and stared at us….”

Cochran, who lost vision in one eye and recently had her fourth corneal transplant on her seeing eye, became a writer, poet and author after retiring and while almost blind. “I try to recreate the open air communities we had then before we had air conditioning and television.”
