Minor in religious studies, proposed courses invited
Earlier this spring, the Board of Trustees approved a new religious studies minor. The original proposal consisted of a three-tier approach, consisting of religion as faith, belief, and historical background, the artistic appreciation and expression of religion, and social and political applications of faith. At the time of the proposal, the undergraduate curriculum committee deemed that not enough courses currently existed to fill this approach.
   Therefore, faculty members are now invited to propose courses for their departments and the Undergraduate Bulletin. Faculty have expressed interest in teaching Latin and Greek, the history of the Early Church, the Medieval Church, and the Reformation; American Politics and Religion in the 20th Century. For details, please contact Dr. Wayne Narey, English & Philosophy, at 972-2625, or via email at wnarey@astate.edu.

Postal Service signs extension to June 2007

The Division of Finance and Administration has announced that the U.S. Postal Service signed a lease extension to remain on campus in its existing facility until June 30, 2007. The original lease expiration date was set for this Oct. 31. This extension allows for a more seamless transition between the spring and fall semesters, as opposed to having postal service disrupted in the middle of the fall 2006 semester. Eventually, the university would like to see a permanent postal facility located in the renovated Reng Student Services Center, according to Jennus Burton, vice president for Finance and Administration.
