The new Thormann International Center in Julia Rogers was dedicated on April 5 in honor of Dr. Wolfgang Thormann. Thormann was the chair of the Modern Languages Department at Goucher from 1969-1989. Today, the department is called the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures. While working, he opened  the original Thormann International and Technology Center in Froelicher Hall, and the  building was dedicated to him. His dream was to have Froelicher Hall made into a language dorm. Though Froelicher was not turned into a language dorm, it still houses the original Thormann International Center.

Scoop’s Corner: The common cold is getting old

Well it happened: I finally got sick. I’m not sure what it was, but the Tuesday after spring break, my throat hurt, I was exhausted, and I had a stuffy nose and headache. By Wednesday, I was coughing my lungs out. Thursday, I left one of my classes early because I wasn’t feeling well. I probably should have rested more during the weekend, but I had a ton of homework and a supply of Advil so nothing was going to stop me except pure and utter exhaustion.

Goucher held its very first Islamic Awareness Week from March 25 to March 28. The week included a four-day event that involved a student panel, two guest speakers, and a film screening. First year student Samer Salem said he organized the event because there was “a lot of misguided anti-Islamic rhetoric [on campus],” he said. “I researched every college I applied to, but I knew it was going to be an issue on campus beforehand, and I still chose to attend for specific reasons. However, knowing it is an issue and being within the community are two different things … though I told myself I’m not allowed to complain because I was aware of the problem.”

By now, you’ve probably seen “Frozen.” If you haven’t, you’ve either been living under a rock or you’re anti-Disney. If you are the former, see it. If you are the latter, see it. The movie which came out in November is STILL showing in some theaters. By the end of February, the movie had grossed over $985,000,000 worldwide, which puts it as the second highest grossing animated film ever.

Scoop’s Corner: Summer plans prove daunting

When did you declare your major? When did you get your first internship? Did you ever change your major? How many times? Why did you change your major? Was it difficult? I know these questions are something we all ask at one point or another. I’m thinking about declaring and I’m really unsure as to whether I should do it now or if I should wait. I already know what I want to major in – communications with a journalism emphasis. But I don’t know if I want to double major or major and minor in something else. And of course, the question is: In what? In my mind I’ve already considered English, history, and anthropology. I’ve only taken one class in each, except for English because of the writing proficiency requirement, so it’s a tough decision.
