Symposium Paddles through Campus

Classes were canceled Thursday, April 23, for the 12th annual Gordon College Symposium, a day dedicated to discussing contemporary issues outside the classroom. This year’s theme was “Creation Care: The Challenges and Opportunities of the Ecological Crisis.” An unusual characteristic of Symposium is that the roles of students and professors are reversed: Students create educational presentations or events for faculty and other students. Among these events were a visual presentation on our carbon footprint, a recycling plant trip and (pictured) an Ipswich River canoe and cleanup trip. More information on Symposium.
