Conversations with Clergy

Cultural/Diversity

Because confidential conversations about matters of faith are best accommodated by clergy who have been trained to minister to your specific spiritual needs, beginning in early February, 2019, local clergy members from various denominations and faith-traditions will be available from 3:00-5:00 pm in Old Main 243 for one-on-one conversations with interested students. This is a pilot project, sponsored by the USU Interfaith Initiative, so we are intentionally beginning small. If there is sufficient demand, this program will expand to include clergy of other faith traditions in the future. We encourage you to drop by and have a conversation with these well-trained clergy members about anything that is on your heart or mind. For information on names and affiliations of clergy who will be available on any given Tuesday afternoon, please visit the Interfaith Initiative website at http://interfaith.usu.edu/interfaith_support_services.

Anna Karenina

Arts/Entertainment

In a world of power and knowledge, Anna Karenina is a woman who dares to obey her heart by leaving her scrupulous husband, Karenin, and traveling with her charming lover, Count Vronsky, across Europe in a scandalous affair. Playwright Helen Edmundson illuminates the original story's grand pattern: how the adulterous Anna travels towards disintegration and death while her brother, young landowner Levin, travels toward maturity and a sense of wholeness with his true love, Kitty. Both unique and universal, Anna Karenina is saturated with deep colors and delicate patterns, with riveting motion and rich music, with memorable characters and powerful storytelling. Tolstoy's epic novel remains touching and universal through the lens of this power stage adaptation.

Workshop/Training | Focused Friday

This class is geared towards anyone who is wanting to further their skills in excel. If you believe that you might use excel regularly in your field of work, then I highly recommend this course. In three classes we will walk through how to use Python to advance your abilities and efficiency in Microsoft Excel. We will learn how we can easily automate any task that you might use Excel for. I also aim to help others to see that coding is not difficult, it's not just for computer science majors, and it can be used for many specific applications.

Anna Karenina

Arts/Entertainment

In a world of power and knowledge, Anna Karenina is a woman who dares to obey her heart by leaving her scrupulous husband, Karenin, and traveling with her charming lover, Count Vronsky, across Europe in a scandalous affair. Playwright Helen Edmundson illuminates the original story's grand pattern: how the adulterous Anna travels towards disintegration and death while her brother, young landowner Levin, travels toward maturity and a sense of wholeness with his true love, Kitty. Both unique and universal, Anna Karenina is saturated with deep colors and delicate patterns, with riveting motion and rich music, with memorable characters and powerful storytelling. Tolstoy's epic novel remains touching and universal through the lens of this power stage adaptation.

Because confidential conversations about matters of faith are best accommodated by clergy who have been trained to minister to your specific spiritual needs, beginning in early February, 2019, local clergy members from various denominations and faith-traditions will be available from 3:00-5:00 pm in Old Main 243 for one-on-one conversations with interested students. This is a pilot project, sponsored by the USU Interfaith Initiative, so we are intentionally beginning small. If there is sufficient demand, this program will expand to include clergy of other faith traditions in the future. We encourage you to drop by and have a conversation with these well-trained clergy members about anything that is on your heart or mind. For information on names and affiliations of clergy who will be available on any given Tuesday afternoon, please visit the Interfaith Initiative website at http://interfaith.usu.edu/interfaith_support_services.
