What were some groups you were involved in as an undergraduate?

College’s 14th President (and once a history major at Calvin College) shares some insights with the incoming class

Where was your hometown growing up? CS: Grand Rapids, Michigan, former furniture capital of America, and also hometown of Jerry Ford. During the ‘50s, I’m told, “Time Magazine” described something really boring by saying “it was as moving as a Grand Rapids furniture show.”

9:00 A.m. - 9:45 a.m.

CS: Student Senate, college newspaper The Chimes, and college journal Dialogue. I also helped start a non-profit Christian housing cooperative called Logan Street Covenant House. I was also an alternate delegate to the State Central Committee of the Michigan Democratic party.

What is your favorite book? CS: I think Orhan Pamuk’s novel “Snow” is the book which has impressed me the most in last ten years.

What are some hobbies you enjoy to help you relax? CS: Swimming, hiking, bike-riding, reading Asian novels, keeping up with friends via email, writing in my journal. My wife and I walk a couple of miles together almost every day and talk. That’s some of our quality time together.

What was the number one thing that made Etown right for you?

Etown Pop Culture Quiz Show

What is the funniest/most embarrassing story about yourself? CS: In one of the first college classes that I ever taught, I flipped a map up and the whole set of maps went up in the air and then came down on the map stand so that it ripped right through the maps. My students said I did a pretty good imitation of Jerry Lewis or Inspector Clouseau while I was trying to save the maps.

CS: The seriousness with which people work at making the College a better place. Faculty, staff, alumni, and students care about making this an excellent learning community.
