Caldwells experienced two amazing Wilderness adventures in May – one to Oregon and another to Utah. One in snow, one in red rocks! Watch the video for a sample of the adventures!
We will be welcoming back all Caldwells this Sunday evening at our first dinner seminar of the year. We are looking forward to hearing what adventures were had this summer. Our theme for 2014-15 is the Heart of the Matter. We will explore ways to create rich and fulfilling lives by integrating the arts into our education and careers.
Visit us during WWW on Tuesday, August 19, in Witherspoon Student Center Room 201, from 11:00am-noon.

Learn how this is not your typical scholarship program by meeting some of this diverse community of scholars who are committed to developing themselves as leaders for the greater good.
