With the College’s 40th Anniversary year coming to an end, the alumni held one last celebration on June 30 with a dinner on the campus. The speakers for the evening were none other than three of the College’s founders, Dr. Ronald P. McArthur, Dr. John W. Neumayr, and Mr. Peter L. DeLuca. The three gentlemen graciously participated in a panel discussion whimsically entitled, “They have to Answer for What they Started: Questions & Answers with the Founders.”

“As alumni of the College, we have most directly benefitted from the vision and work of the College’s founders,” says Director of Alumni Relations Mark Kretschmer (’99). “The evening provided us not only with a chance to thank and applaud these great men, but also to tap into their wisdom, and to learn from their thoughts and experience.” With many alumni eager to express gratitude and pose questions, the festive occasion ran late into the night.

“By discussing the great books you learn how to think for yourself and how to come to your own conclusions — how to discover the truth. And it’s tremendously satisfying.”
