Calvin-Wire: August 15, 2012

Beginning with this issue of Calvin-Wire, you will now receive news and event information from us once a month (mid-month) in this mobile-friendly e-newsletter. Also beginning this month, the president's office is sending his e-newsletter, "This Square Inch," which will be sent out 10 times a year at the beginning of the month, with a message from the president and update from the college. If you aren't already receiving "This Square Inch," you may subscribe here.

You might be interested to "Like" the President Michael Le Roy Facebook fan page to see what else he's doing as he begins his tenure at Calvin's 10th president.
