    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

How I organized a lecture series on campus

About a month or two ago, I thought of having a panel/discussion featuring members from the CSS community with different perspectives on common themes. I started working on a draft and decided to have a series of events instead and feature faculty and staff as guest speakers. I am glad that last week, the first presentation – titled Lord of the Rings & the Modern Age: Of Compassion and Companionship. I invited the speakers, namely Dr. Kevin Vaughan, Dr. Tom Buck, and David Vosen (aka DVo), and worked with Campus Ministry staff to publicize the event. It was a great learning experience. I enjoyed having a variety of perspectives and approaches to Tolkien’s work and its meaning in this age. After the event, I talked to several students, all of whom were happy to have attended and one even developed an interest in Tolkien’s work and the movies based off from it.


The next event I organized will be on Thurdsay, December 8, at 7:00 PM in Science 1109. It will feature Professor HM Liang and Joelle McGovern. The title is Jedi & Saints: Finding Balance in the Force. Looking forward to this second and last presentation in the Fall lecture series!
