Get your nose out of a book?

Not sure you if guys saw this week’s VUCast but it opens up a nice window into some of the cool things our professors are doing in classes at Vandy.  The video chronicles an English class discussion on the history and culture of coal mining held at a professor’s house with music superstar Kathy Mattea in attendance.   I find that it’s intellectual experiences like this that makes higher education so fascinating.  It’s one thing to read about something in a book . . .

Another amazing learning experience was last year’s retracing of the Freedom Rides.  This program is still being talked about around campus.  It is absolutely remarkable what those young people went through in the name of justice and equality.
