Your peeps are hard at work -- enjoying nature!

I want to share a photo from this week's Dawn Patrol hike at Kent's Ledge.  Dean Tom McHenry (on the right) has been leading the hike every Tuesday, rain or shine (the first hike I did in January it was about 15 below).  VLS On Line Director Linda Heimer has led hikes in the Dean's absence.  A variety of students and other faculty have joined the Dean, a great opportunity to interact in a casual setting.  I don't know of any other institution where such regular and causal interaction between the Dean, faculty and students occurs in this setting.  I join when I can, and have to work really hard to keep up with Tom and Linda!   -- Jack Tuholske  (on line and classroom faculty)
