Picturing Paradise / Destellos del Paraíso


Come back from spring break to something utterly beautiful.

We hope you'll join us.

The third Faculty Pub Night of the semester features Lawrence Wenner, Von der Ahe Professor of Communication and Ethics.

focuses on the increasingly ubiquitous phenomenon whereby notable figures from the sporting world fall from grace in full public view on the main stages of media.


All Pub Nights are free and open to everyone - not just faculty! Pub refreshments and snacks will be served, and copies of Wenner's book will be available for sale and signing.

The Circuit Revisited


Did you see the collection of beautiful portraits and landscapes by LMU graduate student Hunter Joslin on display last month? 


Although the exhibit is down, we'd be remiss if we didn't share this news with you. At the closing reception and silent auction for The Circuit, the sale of Joslin's work raised over $3200, with all proceeds going towards graduate student scholarships in the Theology department.


Congratulations to Hunter and all of his supporters here at LMU!
