  • A classic dorm tale - Hesston College
    it appeared to me to be an upgrade as it placed us much closer to the female side of the campus community a plywood wall kept us separate and Erb Hall was air conditioned and Kauffman Court was not Jim Mason As it turned out life in Erb was all that I hoped it could be We had a varied and diverse group of occupants who got along very well and made sure that dorm life was never dull Fast forward to the present where I am now responsible for the care and maintenance of that same dorm room I occupied 37 years ago The single pane windows that would weep all year long and freeze into a thick layer of frost on the inside during the winter months have been replaced with energy efficient windows A new insulated roof has been added and the bathrooms were completely renovated this past summer The remaining carpet and furniture can only be described as vintage as they are exactly the same as when I lived there Further and most importantly the 42 year old piping is failing and the leaks are a challenge to repair There are positives as well The Erb structure is still very sound the rooms are spacious by today s standards and the mod layout is effective I look forward to replacing the vintage retro of Erb central and west with modern and comfortable materials and equipment The college has shown great stewardship in maintaining and getting maximum utility out of this living area Put simply we have gotten our money s worth but the need for new investment is here Jim Mason 75 Director of Campus Facilities Hesston College Today Articles in this Issue More than places to eat and sleep President s perspective Making the old

    have heat air conditioning electricity and water When we return to Hesston College in August we will still have all of those things we will just have an updated version and without the threat of pipes bursting Leah Mueller So we ask ourselves Why should I give money to this project The answer is simple Dorm life is essential to Hesston College This place must serve as a home for students as many come from long distances and can t go home frequently The new furnishings in the rooms such as dressers and beds will provide comfort and options for space saving arrangements New furniture in the lounges is important because this is where much of our socialization occurs In my mod and sister mod there are always people sitting out in the lounge doing homework watching a movie or just chatting These places are essential to dorm life because it gives students a place to connect with others and experience community The new infrastructure is also important but for much less visible reasons Even though new pipes and electrical systems can t be seen by walking into a room or through a hallway their effect can Think of the time and money required for aging pipes electrical and heating and air conditioning systems in a standard house then think of those same issues in a college dorm This project might not be the most glamorous thing we could imagine but that doesn t make it any less important to the students who call Erb Hall home Leah Mueller 12 Student Committee member Halstead Kan Hesston College Today Articles in this Issue More than places to eat and sleep President s perspective Making the old new new again Alumni profile Marissa King 05 Student profile Lyn Ungang 12 When I

  • Being number two - President's Perspective - Hesston College
    faculty interaction and student effort These ideas are all at the core of how we go about teaching at Hesston College and this issue tells stories that help portray what our ranking is all about For the past several years our faculty led by Vice President of Academics Dr Sandra Zerger Dr Nelson Kilmer Bonnie Sowers and other division chairs have made a deliberate effort to use the data from student surveys to improve teaching and learning In addition Student Life has become more engaged in helping students succeed academically The number two ranking is in part a result of these efforts At Hesston College we care a great deal about the content of our courses that it is substantial current in the discipline and in keeping with our mission and values But we care just as much and maybe more about the relationship between faculty and students This emphasis on the teaching and mentoring relationship is not new it is part of the DNA of Hesston College As I visit with alumni and current students they tell stories of the investments of time and effort that faculty have made in their lives It should be noted that in the interest of economy of dollars and effort Hesston College uses the CCSSE every three years as part of a cycle of surveys used to measure and improve the quality of student learning and satisfaction This means that we will not appear on the Washington Monthly list next year or the next Please note that we will not have suddenly slipped in quality I am grateful to our faculty and staff who contributed to this achievement and to all of our alumni and friends who support Hesston College Our theme verse for 2010 11 seems especially appropriate Now to God who
