As the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum begins its 16th year, the new student fellows for 1999-2000, Brendan Ford and Billy Grayson, would like to welcome all the new and returning students, faculty, and college presidents. The upcoming year promises to include plenty of discussion, debate, entertainment, and herb-crusted seabass with lemon beurre blanc.

Brendan Ford double majors in government and economics. He participated in the Washington semester program and studied abroad at University College Dublin. He is a native of Yonkers, New York.

Billy Grayson double majors in environment, economics, and politics (EEP) and literature. He is also the founding president of the Eco-club and spent the summer studying ecological economics in Queensland, Australia. He is from Bethesda, Maryland.

The Athenaeum Fellows encourage all members of the CMC community to take full advantage of the Athenaeum program and enthusiastically welcome suggestions and feedback.

Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum

The Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum was conceived as a place where students and faculty could gather for intellectual discourse in an intimate and relaxed setting and integrate their academic and social lives. Public programs are scheduled Monday through Thursday during the academic year and are publicized through the bi-weekly newsletter, The Fortnightly.

While events are primarily for students, the Athenaeum hosts lunches, dinners, and receptions for academic classes, student organizations, and official functions of the College.
