Department Holds Annual Welcome Reception

Sep 12, 2011

The history department held its annual welcome reception for history majors and minors at Dr. Stephen Carls’s home on September 12, 2011. Taking advantage of a beautiful fall evening, thirty-five people attended the event at which students, faculty, and faculty spouses got to know each other better in an informal atmosphere. Among the foods served were several home-made items including cheese ball cookies, brownies, coconut orange balls, baked ham and cheese sandwiches, lemon bars, and a pork roast.
