Welcome! Welcome! Welcome to a new year at the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum! Once again a semester of exciting and informative Athenaeum events will have you running to return your reservation slips. As Athenaeum fellows, we want to encourage you to take advantage of the many stimulating speakers that the Ath has to offer.

The Athenaeum is proud to host returning guests Jean Kilbourne and Suzi Landolphi as part of the "Women in the l990s" series. Other familiar faces include our own Jack Stark and the notable Donald McKenna, who will share how their favorite novels affected their lives. Other series ahead at the Athenaum are "Saving Our Environment," "The United States and Europe in the 1990s," and "Diversity: The History of an Idea in America." These, however, are only a sampling of the fantastic personalities and programs in store for you.

The Athenaeum is a great place to meet people and to learn outside the classroom. Feel free to sign up for as many events as you like, and if you would like to sit at the speaker's table, please notify one of us in advance. And don't forget: no jeans, shorts, tennis shoes, or swimsuits are allowed at Ath dinners. If you have any ideas for the Athenaeum or about possible speakers, don't hesitate to contact us. See you at the Ath!
