Kudos to our Majors and Minors

Religious studies Majors and Minors are out accomplishing amazing things. Here are some examples of what they have been up to this spring:

Jonathan Homrighausen presented a paper on the significance of Francis' famous encounter with Sultan al-Kamil in Egypt during the fifth crusade at the spring meeting of the Western Region of the American Academy of Religion, which Santa Clara University hosted. Homrighausen was the only undergraduate who presented a paper at the meeting.

Regina Fields directed and had a lead part in a staged reading of the play "The House That Will Not Stand," which included a conversation with the playwright, Marcus Gardley.

Ian Layton was a leader of the Immigration Week activities, including the Border Wall, which highlighted the issue of immigration for the campus community.

Gina Pasquali had her artwork featured at the Senior Art Show, titled "Realms of Intimacy: Personal Introspections of Briar Wren and Gina Pasquali" at the University Fine Arts Gallery.

Three students also won awards for the most outstanding essays in their Pathways:
Amia Nash in Global Health
Susan Lewin in Paradigm Shifts and the Nature of Human Knowing
Anthony Ferrari in Sustainability
