From the Arbor | News for October from Jerry Weakley

Parementer in fall

Greetings once again from the Baldwin City campus of Baker University!

I like to think that even though the mirror and the calendar both report daily that I am getting older, that I still have some ability to address change with something less than just an open mouth.

Recently I had conversations with three different alumni at three different events, and it was apparent that they (and perhaps many of you) often read this opening page of the Arbor and then for whatever reason don’t venture on into the PDF of the publication by clicking the link provided. I am sure that the lack of time at that particular moment is often the culprit for not reading further, but in the instance of the three people referred to above, it was the lack of knowing what stories were to be covered that allowed them to leave the page without clicking the link to the newsletter. Obviously, I had not done my job of piquing interest!

Therefore, starting with this issue, I am going to provide a table of contents for your convenience, right here on the opening page.

So, here’s what I have written about inside for October. I hope you will see something below that will make you want to go “on in” and uncover a story that will inform, entertain or further engage you with our outstanding University!
