Dear Friend of the I.S. Department,

As we have now come to the close of another busy and eventful semester, we’re delighted to send you the latest edition of the I.S. Department newsletter.

Here are a couple of highlights from Spring 2008:

During the recent May 10, 2008 commencement ceremonies, 32 students graduated with a degree in International Studies.  This number includes both International Studies majors as well as those students with an interdisciplinary (or “bridge”) major that includes International Studies, such as I.S.-Economics, I.S.-Political Science, I.S.-French, etc.

After nineteen terrific years of service to the College, our wonderful (and irreplaceable) Departmental Assistant, Brenda Somes, has decided to retire.  Brenda assures us that she will not be far and is only a phone call or email away.  (You’ll hear from Brenda elsewhere in this newsletter.)

We hope this newsletter finds you well. Please keep in touch by emailing your news to ceccoli@rhodes.edu.

Best,

Stephen Ceccoli
Department Chair
