A Day at Vassar’s Fourth Year

Lectures, tours, art, and music kept Hudson Valley residents entertained during the fourth annual A Day at Vassar.

The October 18 event featured talks on a multitude of topics—from Reconstructing Life and Death with Forensic Anthropology and Archaeology by Associate Professor of Anthropology April Beisaw to Athens and Jerusalem: Two Sources of Western Ethics by Professor Emeritus of Philosophy Michael McCarthy to Stem Cells: The Hype, the Hope and the Hard Facts by Professor of Biology Nancy Pokrywka.

Along with the lectures, the 600 attendees ventured outdoors in beautiful weather for campus tours, listened to a faculty concert, and perused the exhibitions at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Palmer Gallery, Thompson Memorial Library, and Warthin Museum.
