Special Thanks!

We wish to express our thanks to all the students and faculty who contributed to Hutton Honors College extracurricular programming events in 2014-15. We are grateful for the time, effort, and good spirit so many student volunteers dedicated to help plan and host events, including breakfasts, lunches, and suppers with IU faculty and distinguished campus visitors. From the fall HHC mixer at the IU Art Museum to the HHart: Arts Showcase and Gala, students created many memorable events.

We were grateful to have partnered with David Smith, Joe Bartzel, Emma Young, and the IU Ethics Bowl Team, all associated with the Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics and American Institutions, for the HHC program “Debating Real World Issues”; with Anne Kibbler of The Media School, who brought distinguished journalists and others to campus and included undergraduate events at the HHC in their schedules; with HHC Dean Andrea Ciccarelli, who organized events all year for the World War I: 100 Years series and included undergraduate events with many of the distinguished guests at the HHC; with the Musical Arts Center and Tridib Pal, who provided opening night opera and ballet opportunities for HHC students and tours of the MAC; with Tracy Bee of the College of Arts and Sciences and Peter Todd of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, who organized and provided event opportunities through the fall themester on “Eat, Drink, Think: Food from Art to Science”; with Indermohan Virk of the Patten Foundation, who provided opportunities for undergraduates to have suppers with the year's Patten Lecturers; with Jennifer Wagelie, who taught the HHC docent class, and Ann Fields and Patsy Rahn, who coordinated HHC events at the IU Art Museum; with Mimi Attenoukon of the Hudson & Holland Scholars Program, who was key to making the HHart: Arts Showcase and Gala a success; with the organizers of SustainIU Week, especially Professor Michael Hamburger of the Department of Geological Sciences, for the visit of nature photographer James Balog and associated events; with Jennifer Bass of the Kinsey Institute; with Lee Williams of the Lotus World Music Festival on many, many lunches over the years with exciting musicians from around the world; with the Office of First Year Experience, which provided a memorable evening with the Peking Acrobats; with Stacy Brown of the IU Auditorium on lunch with members of the Cleveland Orchestra and other events; with the College of Arts and Sciences, which brought Truth Values to campus and invited HHC students to the performance; with the student leaders of Raas Royalty, the Chinese Calligraphy Club, the Autism Mentoring Program, Oxfam at IU, Books and Beyond, the IU College Luminaries Program, Culture of Care, and IU's improv comedy groups who proposed and organized a terrific range of programs for students in the HHC and beyond; and with so many others.

An extra-special thanks goes to the student, faculty, and staff members of the 2014-15 HHC Extracurricular Programs Planning Committee for their leadership throughout the year and their stimulating contributions to this past year's programming. Students serving on the 2014-15 committee were Marjorie Brewer, teaching all learners; Daniel Eads, accounting and finance; Mallory Elver, arts management; Andrew Henderson, mathematics and physics; Jake Huff, English; Ryan Myers, speech writing (IMP) and communication and culture; Sandhya Sridhar, cognitive science and conflict resolution (IMP); and Christine White, political science and economics. We will miss our graduating members—Mallory Elver, Ryan Myers, Sandhya Sridhar, and Christine White—but are grateful for their help over the years. We also want to say a special thanks to Hussain Ather and graduating senior Sage Russinsky for their efforts to plan this year's Ethics for Breakfast series.

Congratulations and thanks, too, to all the HHC students who contributed to extracurricular programming in their residences and through campus, community, and international organizations.

We appreciate all your hard work!
