Items for the Strong College Newsletter may be submitted at any time

inclusion in the next week’s issue.  Events are open to all members of
Strong College unless otherwise indicated.


- Competitive Scholars and Black Students Visit Strong College -

In the last couple of weeks Strong College has played host to many 
visitors.  A large group of North Carolina Competitive Scholars — high 
school students of exceptional promise — stayed with us as part of 
their tour of the University, and just a few days after that several 
more high school students participating in the Black Students Visitation 
Program made Strong College their home for a night.  All reports are 
that these visits went splendidly well.  The greatest thanks are due to 
the many, many Strong College undergraduates who put our visitors up: a 
Strong “well done!” to them all.

- Virtual Visitors from Around the World -

The Strong College gopher site and World Wide Web page have as one of 
their special features a directory of residential college programs like 
our own at other universities around the world.  Among the institutions 
represented are: the Arizona State University Honors College, Cambridge 
University (web pages for Churchill, Downing, Girton, King’s and Trinity 
Colleges), Durham University (web pages for St. Chad’s and St. Aidan’s 
Colleges), Harvard University (all the Houses), Latrobe University (web 
page for Glenn College), Northwestern University (web pages for Lindgren 
and Willard Colleges), Oxford University (web pages for several 
Colleges), Rice University (web pages for several Colleges), the 
University of California at Santa Cruz, the University of Southern 
California, the University of Virginia (web page for Hereford College), 
Western Michigan University (Lee Honors College), and Yale University 
(Calhoun and Silliman Colleges).  Dr. O’Hara recently announced our 
Strong College page and this residential college directory to several 
locations on the Internet, and already Strong College has had virtual 
visits from people at universities in Canada (several), England 
(several), Kansas, North Dakota, Texas, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and 
Vermont.  Rice University has even made a link from its own list of Rice 
Colleges to our residential college directory, a link that people will 
follow if they want to find out what “residential college” means.  St. 
Aidan’s College of Durham University in England had made a link to our 
page too.

- News of Members -

Trish Esposito and Jared Karro both have World Wide Web pages of their 
own — pay them a visit!  They may be gotten to from the Strong College 
home page.

Strong College Fellow and French Circle sponsor Mark Schumacher was 
featured in the Carolinian this past week (and all the details of his 
secret frisbee collection were revealed).  If you missed it you can 
catch up on the bulletin board outside the College Office (140), or on 
the Strong College gopher or web page.

Listen to Strong College’s own Erik Talley in “The Carnival of the 
Damned” on WUAG Radio, 103.1 FM, every Friday night from 11:00 p.m. -

- Poem-of-the-Week -

The Strong College Poem-of-the-Week appears on the bulletin board 
outside the College Office.  This week’s poem comes from William 
Wordsworth’s ode “On Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of 
Early Childhood” (1807).  We reproduce it whole:

	There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
		The earth and every common sight,
			To me did seem
		Appareled in celestial light,
	The glory and the freshness of a dream.
	It is not now as it hath been of yore;—
		Turn wheresoe’er I may,
			By night or day,
	The things which I have seen I now can see no more.

		The Rainbow comes and goes,
		And lovely is the Rose;
		The Moon doth with delight
	Look round her when the heavens are bare.
		Waters on a starry night
		Are beautiful and fair;
		The sunshine is a glorious birth;
		But yet I know, where’er I go,
	That there hath passed away a glory of the earth.
