life of the mind Journalist Martin Jacques imagines a world where China is the world's only superpower hina will be rhe economic colos­ sus on the block someday. Ie's not a quesrion of if, bur when. Thar's rhe proposal Brirish journalisr and author MarrinJacques broughr ro PLU as he delivered a series of lecrures based on his book "When China Rules rhe World: The End of rhe Wesrern World and rhe Rise of rhe Middle Kingdom." In making his argument for the rise of China in inf1uence and economic clour, Jacques (pronounced "Jakes") firsr points to sheer numbers. The Asian giam countS a biUion-plus popularion - four rimes rhe popularion of rhe United Srares. That alone will enable China to overtake rhe Unired Srares as the world's largesr econo­ my by 2027, wirh a continued climb to the posirion of world economic leader by 2050. China is already emerging as rhe new center of the East Asian economy, eclips­ ingJapall. The role of economic and cul­ tural relevance will, in our lifetimes, begin co pass from Manhatran and Paris co cities like Beijing and Shanghai,]acques claims. "And the assumption in all rhis is that China will grow and develop like a Western country,"Jacques said during one of his many interviews and lectures in Tacoma and Seattle lasr May. "But thar is simply nor the case. The U.S. wants co understand China on its own terms and defines progress as the Westernization of thc country. But rhat isn't going [0 hap­ pen. Nor in a month of Sundays will China ever be Like us." So what will China be like? And wh>' should the United States care? Jacques predicts that China will not only inf1uence world economics, but have a strong say in how environmental resources are used, and how rechnology is developed. The country will do it all without becom­ ing a democracy. It will borrow economic and political ideas for the Wesr,Jacques said, bur it will hold onto a velY patriar­ chal system, which China's growing mid­ dle class will tolerate, or even encourage. Jacques contends that it is the American

relationship with, and attitude toward, China that will determine whether the 21st century will be relatively peaceful or fraught with tension and insrability. America is just waking up to the fact thar its world influence is waning, while China's is growing,]acques said. "I remember being very excited (when I read his book) because this was a set of questions that I'd been waiting for about 10 years for someone to ask," said Gregory Youez, music professor at PLU and a faculty member in PLU's Chinese Studies Program. "He talks aboue how the Chinese have their own sense of superiority, just as rhe U.S. has its own sense that we're God's people, and the British before LIS," said Yourz. How China's own sense of hubris, as well as its developing role as the world's banker, may play out is uncertain. Currenrly, China is sitting on $2.5 rril­ lion in foreign currency. Generally, China has been more interested in making key trade and business alliances with other countries, and ignoring what might be happening in a humanitarian or ecologi­ cal sense within that country, he said "They have a very strict policy of non­ interference in orher countries' affairs in that way," Youtz noted. Although Youez agreed with many of Jacques points, he believes that the jour­ nalist hasn't answered all questions posed by his own scenario. China's growing, and powerful middle class is technologically savvy - and while they might tolerate a Communist regime now, they won't want to be cut off from rhe world, Youtz said. With the advent of new technologies, "more (Chinese middle class) will begin to think about other possibilities than what they know," Youtz said. Jacques has argued thar China will catch up and take on the modern view of envi­ ronmentalism, such as the use of solar and wind power technology. But Yourz counters that while the government may

be very progressive in environmental poli­ cy, the local government officials can, and often do, ignore such edicrs. In fact, if there is one rhing rhat may keep China hams[)'ung as a superpower, it's the widespread endemic corruption of local officials, Yourz said. "That is the major complaint of the average Chinese citizen," Yourz said. "And it contribures to the doom and gloom rhat overshadows their view of China as a country. "Thar corruption may bring down China and makes Jacques' vision of a growing, successful and peaceful China impossible," Youtz said. Several crirics of Jacques' work also poine oue thar they doubt China will emerge as rhe world leader because its workforce and leaders are unimagina­ rive. Orhers note tharJacques' main sources for rhe book seem to be Wesrern financial experrs or urbane Chinesc, nor rhe hundreds of millions of rhe under­ class workers who live in poverty. Adam CarhcarT, assisrant professor of history and a part of PLU's Chinese Studies program, saidJacques did bring up some interesring quesrions. Bur he noted rhar China may quickly become sidelined in its growth and inf1uence if it gers drawn into rhe rensions between North Korea and South Korea over lasr March's sinking of rhe Sourh Korean warship Cheonan. China is now in rhe uncomforrable posirion of chasrising irs unstable neighbor and longtime ally, Noreh Korea. If rhis dispure draws China in, don'r look for an emergence of a leading superpower any rime soon, Carhcarr no red. � -Barbara Clements Martin Jacqttes is a visiting senior [eliOt/! at the Londol1 School ofEconomio� IDEAS, a centrefor the study of international affai1'S, diplomaCJI (md grand stmtegy, and

he table in David Akuien's South Hall apartment is covered with textbooks and worksheets, filled with menculous notes. He sits down at the table and spends hours studying - this day i t's for an environ­ mental studies test. Behind him is a poster of Mahatma Gandhi, with the quote "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." On the right is a poster of Martin Luther King]r. at the Lincoln Memorial, with his "I Have a Dream" speech below the image. " People like them can keep me on track everyday," he said, pointing to the posters. "These guys aren't alive, but their words are still very much alive." The study area, the decor on the walls, is all very much Akuien. "This is home," he said. For the first 12 years of David Akuien's life, he did not have a home - at least not the way most people think of one. He had places to live, but the word, the meaning of "home" was lost. The com fort and safety associated with the word did not exist. His first years of his life were spen t escaping from the horrors of a civil war in Sudan. "1 was born into this chaos right away," Akuien said. He is one of almost 4,000 " Lost Boys," who escaped a life of war and faced the fear of the unknown for a chance at a better life in America, in a faraway place called Tacoma, Wash. For the next 10 years, the place [he 22-year-old has called home has been Tacoma. The past six years have been at PLU. He has lived here longer than any place in his life. This May, Akuien (pronounced "A-Q-en") graduated with a double major in communication and political science, and earned minors in conflict resolution and religion. " Luckily, I was one of the children chosen to come here," he said. Life at PLU wasn't automatically easy for Akuien. He fel t dif14


ferent. He was different. He'd sit in a class and hear the prob­ lems his fellow students would talk abou t and reaLize how dis­ connected they were from the horrors of his past. "I didn't identif), with anybody," he said, "That was the thing that frightened me." But through the guidance of people like retired Professor Rick Seeger, and by getting involved in campus organizations and even working in PLUs conference and events, PLU became his home. "We were the 'go to' people," Akuien said of his time with conference and events. "That was the first time I felt at home. That's when I felt a sense of belonging. "PLU has become a home," he added, "all of that came because of my involvement." Akuien hopes to stay involved. He's considering getting his masters in education at PLU. He's passionate about educating people and giving people the opportunities that come with education. Someday, he hopes to return to Sudan as an educa­ tor. He hopes to make his country great. "If you know where you've gone, you know where you're going and you know where you've got to go," he said. His earliest memories are of being carried by a cousin with a group of refugees through thousands of miles of harsh wilder­ ness and a homeland ravaged by war. He was only five years old at the time. They headed to Ethiopia only to find another civil war. His father was killed and fout of his siblings met the same fate. "That's life in southern Sudan," he said softly. "A lor of peo­ ple didn't make it." "Sometimes we don't realize life is really, really horrible in parts of the world," Akuien said. "I wish people made the best of what they have." On the road to Ethiopia and then to Kenya, Akuien said it was common to see other refugees stop on the side of the road and give encouragement to each lifeless person laying beside i t. But staying put wasn't an option. "There was a sense of

urgency," Akuien said. "You had to always keep moving." It wasn't just sickness or malnutrition that would kill, but also the people along the way. It could be a bandi t or soldier, whose side wasn't always easy to tell. The faces he remembers most are those of the nearly 8,000 Lost Boys who didn't make it to America. Certainly some of them are now dead, but there's hope many have survived and one day he'll see them agajn. Being on the cusp of achieving so m uch for h imself, in many ways those achievements are also for those people, those boys that are always on his mind. "The Lost Boys," Akuien said, "I'm one of them." It took years, thousands of miles and unspeakable sights to make it to Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya - home to nearl), 1 00,000 refugees. In Swahili, "Kaku ma" means "nowhere." There were moments though where the boys, who were forced to grow-up too soon, truly experienced life as boys. In camp, the boys would gather around a soccer ball on a dirt field filled with rocks and no clear boundaries and just play. They'd play without shoes. The dirt would soil the few clothes they had and the rocks would tear at their skin. But none of that mattered in those moments, Akuien said. They were getting a chance to play a game, to escape the confines or their existence. "When you'd see them do that, you'd think these kids are tough," he said. "Despite everything, a lot of kids live life with hope and happiness." Eventually, programs organized by the United Nations and the United States enabled some of the "Lost Boys" to be moved from Kakuma to America. "The Lost Boys of Sudan" earned their name from the story of Peter Pan - all of their parents were either killed or separated from them. These boys who had lived a harder life than most men, hurried to apply for evacua­ tion. Not all would be rescued from "Nowhere," but some would. The day Aukien saw h is name he was filled with mixed feel-

ings, after all he was only a 12 year-old boy and was going to be leaving everything he had known to be a part of a place he couldn't explain or visualize. He didn't know the fate of many of his family members a.nd in camp he was withou t them. I t wasn't until years later, in America, that he would reconnect with his mother. "I fel t I was giving up a lot of myself," he said. Aukien lived in foster care in Tacoma during his first years in the United States. He went to Foss High School. He struggled to com municate and understand cultural differences. For some­ one who walked east Africa for years, just finding a classroom was hard. He asked h imself that first day of class, "How am I going to make it?" Akuien has always fou nd a way. He has made Tacoma and PLU home, but longs to open the door of the past in hopes for a bright future. He misses the mother he hasn't seen for more than 10 years a lifetime ago. She is back in southern Sudan, with his sister. Being with them, in one place, is an image he holds on to and he is eager for it to happen. "It's been on my mind since I first came to this country," Akuien said. "I want to see how l i fe is now." Even though Sudan was a place of many horrific memories, he misses his country. Today, southern Sudan is a nation in recovery. It was only a few years ago that phone service became readily available throughout the region. Since, he's been able to talk to his mother. A journey that's taken him from Sudan to Ethiopia, back to Sudan, to Kenya, then to Tacoma, will take him back to Sudan, not to the horrors of the past, but rather the hope of the future. "I'm not better," he said, "but I guess I can say it's the card I've been dealt and you just have to deal with the card you've been dealt. "Nothing is bigger than what I've already been through." �

a similarly impressive 1 994 campaign when he suffered a career-ending ankle injury early in the 1994 season. When Thiel wasn't throwing opposing quar­ terbacks to the ground, he was throw­ ing shot puts and ham mers all the way to the national championships. As a star of the PLU track and field team, Thiel p rogressively increased his impact over the rhree years he partici pated. Moving from 14th nationally ( 15 1-9) his fresh man year ( 1991) in the ham­ mer throw, Jason then went on to sev­ enth- and third-place finishes in the fol­ lowing cwo years. Wi th a mark of 188-5 in 1993, Thiel claimed third p lace at thr nationa.i championships and aLso took home a First Team All-America honor. [0

ason Thiel was arguably one o f the greatest defensive linemen [0 play football at PLU, and he also placed himself among the best in the Track and Ficld record books. Thiel amassed remarkable stats as a defensive tackle, and as a star hammer thrower and shot putter. Thiel starred in 27 of the 29 games that he played during his PLU football career, accru ing 22 sacks, with 13 coming in his sophomore season. Thiel was a two-time tvlr. Rainier League All-Star ( 1 992, '93) and a mem­ ber of the Columbia Football Association championship teams of 1992, '93 and '94. He earned honorable mention All-America honors in the 1 993 season, and with six tackles, twO quarterback sacks, and a fu mble recov­ ery, he was named the Defensive MVP in PLU's 50-20 NAIA championship game wi n over \Vestminster. He was off 22


or several decades, PLU swimming was the toast of the NAJA, with a plethora of All-Americans and individual national champions. Beginnlng in

his freshman year of 1 995, M.ike won the NAJA narional championship in the l Oa-yard breaststroke in a blazing 57.90 seconds, shattering the previoLls school record. Simmons earned All-America honors in both the 100- and 200-meter breaststrokes. The following year, Simmons placed fifth in the 200-meter breaststroke and sixth in the 1 00-merer breaststroke. Mike's junior year proved to be his most proLific and fastest at PLU. Breaking his own school record in the l Oa-meter breaststroke, Simmons once again won the NAJA national championsh ip with a time of 57.46. At the same meet, Simmons placed third in the 200-meter breaststroke (2:05.43) and 1 2th in the 200-yard individual medley ( 1 :59.58). These outstanding feats earned Simmons another AU­ America honor. In the faLl of 1998. PLU transitioned from NAIA [0 NCAA Division 1II, marking a stark change in che qualif)ring times for swimmers nationwide. Simmons qualified and placed in boch the 1 00 and 200 breast­ stroke events at the Division HI meet in 1999, making him the only PLU swim­ mer [0 date [0 compete in an NCAA Division I I I championships. \Vith a 10th-place finish in the 100 breast­ stroke and a 1 6th-place finish in the 200 breaststroke, Simmons firrl1ly pLanted himself among the best swim­ mers [0 ever grace the PLU pooL eading into the 1 9 7 1 tennis sea­ son, PLU men's tennis had yet to make a mark at the regional leve.l, let alone establish a national presence. This changed with Ted


Carlson. Carlson was che num ber-one singles player all four years at PLU, amassing a record of 50- 1 7, and a 33-13 mark as the regular number-one dou­ bles parricipanL In his sophomore sea­ son of 1972, Carlson and teammate Dave Knodel won che NAIA districc dou bles championship. The next year, Carlson won both the conference and districc singles championships and, as a resulc, became che firsc PLU men's ten­ nis player to play ac che NAIA nacional championship cournament. "In so many ways Ted was the pioneer for whac we would consider the 'modern era' of PLU cen nis," said Carlson's for­ mer coach, Mike Benson. To cap off a remarkable and trailblazing career at PLU, Carlson won both the singles and dou bles championships ac the NAlA District I meet, once again making ic co che NAIA national tournament, before bowing out in the second rou nd.

acific Lu cheran University has been blessed with several teams that have completel}' outshined and dominaced competition nationally. Few, chough, have equaled the successes reached by the 1988 women's soccer team, finishing the season with a 2 1 -2-0 record. Led by fou r-time All-American Sonya Brandc and her 29 goals and Wendy Johnson's 15 assists, chis team stormed through opposicion to claim the NAlA nacional cide. A staunch defense, anchored by keeper Gail Scenzel, kepc opponencs to a 0.5 1 goals per game average. Along the way, the PLU women brought home Northwest

Conference of Intercol legiate Colleges, NAlA Districc I cide, and NAlA Wesc Region cides. The 1988 ceam scill holds che highesc winning percentage in ceam history (.913), making its successes even more valuable in historical significance. Assercing cheir will over opposing ceams, the Luee women netted a scag­ gering 83 goals for the season while allowing cheir opponents only 10. During the nacional tournament, che Lu ces scored 10 goals while only giving up jusc cwo. This ceam was che first of five consecucive women's soccer ceams co reach che NAJA nacional cide game, starring a dynascy chac would never be forgotcen in PLU history. Team members: Cathy Ayres, Sonya Brandc, Kirsten Brown, Laura Dutt, Tina Corsi, Karin Gimler, Robyn Hefc, Wendy Johnson, Patti Lirette, Dianne Moran, Sheri Noah, Sharon O'Donnell, Jenny Phillips, Lori Racko, Shari Rider, Sue Schroeder, Sue Shinafelt, Gail Scenzel, Heidi Van Shaik, Kate Wheeler. Head coach Colleen Hacker, assiscant coach Stacy Wacerworth.

ollowing the success of the 1988 national championship ceam, the women's soccer ceam of a year later equaled, and in some respects, sur­ passed its predecessor. The 1989 team won every possible championship put in front of chem, amassing a final record of 22-2-2 en rouce to their sec­ ond successive NAIA national champi­ onship. Kate Wheele( led the team in defense, holding a 0.28 goals againsc average wich an amazing 19 shutoucs.

In che actacking front, PLU was led by chree All-Americans, wich Wendy Joh nson earning NAIA first team recognition, and boch Karin Gilmer and Shari Rider on the second ceam. As the cacalysts of the ceam, chese women led che Luces chrough cheir compecition and sec the ceam record for highesc number of wins (22) and tying for fewest losses in a single sea­ son (2). The 1989 ceam also holds che PLU women's soccer record for mosc consecucive games wichoue a loss (23). The Lutes demonscrated cheir uccer dominance of opponents by scoring 80 goals in che season, including 16 each by Wendy Johnson and Laura DueL Team members: Shannon Arnim, Kirsten Brown, Tina Corsi, Laura Dutt, Karin Gilmer, Krisca Hallock, Robyn Heft, Linda Hollandsworth, Wendy Johnson, Cheryl Kragness, Sheri Noah, Kim Peccia, Jodi Pfaender,Jenny Phillips,Julie Priest, Shari Rider, Mary Rink, Sue Shinafelt, Jill Scraughan, Kate Wheeler.

Forwnarely, amidsr rhe dis tress, by rhe end of the session I usually experience a feeling [har keeps me loving rhe work I do wirh rhese couples.

The answer thar came [0 me rhen, and rhar conrinues ro empower me now, is hope.

Hope is a life force. Ir keeps people moving toward rheir goals and dreams. I r keeps people alive in difficul r cir­ cumsrances. An individual's personal relarionship with hope infl uences his or her daily acrions. As hope is nur­ tured i n rherapy, clients move from hoping for a happier and healrhier furure, to actually having one. In cou­ ples therapy, " hope happens" as cou­ ples move from a posirion of uncerrain­ ry aboU[ rhe furure of their relarionship to a belief and feeling rhar rheir rela­ rionsh i p can improve. When I fi rsr decided ro srudy hope rhere was li rde to no research specifi-

Thus, a primary rask of my research was to find a definirion of hope [har would bring enough clariry to rhe concepr to rhen be able to describe clearly how hope can be nu rrured in rherapy.

Most sign i ficandy, GBC has launched a website where scudents can find what tex tbooks each professor is requi ring fo r their class, and compare how much that book will cost, used or new, at the book­ store, as wel l as how much it w i l l cost on other online merchan ts, such as Amazon or Hal f.

It was my second time at Neah Bay. I had been here once before, parr of a J足 Term course, "Makah Cultu re Past and Present." My experience from that time

was why I returned this past summer. Along with several other PLU students and Professor of Anrhropology David Huelsbeck , we came ro volunteer at Tribal ]ourneys, one of the largest Native American celebrations on the West Coast of the United States. My first experience at Neah Bay taught me the warmth of the Makah people - 1 never had been welcomed so

warmly by people I had just mer. I returned [0 Neah Bay [ 0 not only con足 tinue [ 0 learn aboU[ the Makah, but [0 expose myself [0 the traditions of the many Norrhwest rribal nations anending the celebration. On the da), of arrival, almost 1 0,000 people crowded onro the beach [0 watch 86 canoes from as far away as Alaska address the Makah Tribal Council, requesting permission [0 come ashore. Qu ileute, Qui nault, Tlingit, Swi nomish, Cowichan, \Varm Springs and Lummi are only a few of the tribes [0 attend. For 1 1 days, we were essentially the 'go [0 ' people for anything that need足 ed [ 0 be done. We were assigned as volunteers for elder hospitality, an incredibly honorable task of handling the needs of important tribesmen. On an average day we volun teered for fom [0 10 hours - assisting elders, 損

on the assumption that their values are " right." (In other words, to recog ni z e when they are being e t hn oce nt ric. ) These anthropological learning objec­ tives are congruent with PLU's \Vild Hope Project, i n that they give students

the chance to discover the kind of " big enough questions" that will contin ue to have an impact in the student's l i fe beyond the classroom, today and in the future. Both courses involve on-campus in­ class preparation, and then 1 2 days in Neah Bay, Wash. Ordinarily 12 days is not nearly enough time to recognize often s ubtl e differences in customs and values and, more i m portantly, not e n ough time to resolve conf1icting

making sandwiches, dri ving people i n go l f carts. transporting sal m on , d i rect­ ing traffic and hauling canoes fro m t h e water. In ou r time off w e chatted with eld e rs, went h iki ng , joined drum circles and ate fry bread. No matter what we did, we learned a great deal abom native culture and a l ittle about our own trad itions, as well. I come from an extensive

My time with the Makah taught me ro look at my own cui I re in a war that is not simp!)' sea­ s o n a. l I think of the M akah who partici­ pated for six hours of dances hat have never been performed before and may never be again. These songs and dances are not only an incredible form of expression, bur the right [0 perform rhem are the most valued p roperty a fam i ly ca n h ave . I was captivared br rhat dance. Not simply the b e a u ty of th e performance, but the value in that gesture. It left me with a desire ro " lIve my heri tage" more thoroughly. To m e appreciaring

To h ave been a part of Tribal Journeys was an experience rhat I

emotions abour cultural differences in a way that allows one to understand the other c u lture. The c o u rs es are a collaboration between PLU and the Makah Cu l t ura l and Research Cente r (MCRC). PLU st u de nts learn about Makah and Native American cul tu re from Native Am e rican s. The Makah are eager to s h a re their culture and are ve ry talented cross-cultural educators. \Vhy is this collaboration so effective? I began working with the tribe during graduate school in 1 977. We know and trust each other. I 've been bringing PLU s tu dents to Neah Bay sin ce 1 995. Year i n and year out the students are eager to learn, respectful and honest even if they

The goal is [0 help students learn [0 recognize cultural values that are d i f­ ferent from their own, and l earn [0 rec­ ognize when they are acting/reacting

don't always agree wi th every Makah value. The students have earned the trust of the Makah people who work with us. The trust makes po ss i ble an

openness and sharing more characteris­ tic of the multi-),ear relationship than a 1 2-day experience. The trust re l a tion sh i p is reinforced by service activities. \'(1e h el p out."

I t might be helping serve d inner at a potlatch or helping with elder hospi tality at Tribal Journeys, creating an opportunity not just to observe, bur to participate. Participating in another cultu re is truly a li fe ch anging experience. -[)aIJid R Huclsbcck, proJe.GOI· o[m'tiJropolog;r "

graduates out there in the world , " Cammock sa i d . " PLU turns out some good citizens. H The Cammocks enjoy PLU activities l i ke the Christmas Concert, which has become a holiday tradition, but being a b l e to give the opportun ity of a va l ued education is why the Cam mock's keep PLU cl ose to thei r hearts. In today's world, a person's education can't stop at high school, he sa id. It's just not a n option. "I can't i magine coming out of high school and just q u itting

there, " Cammock sa id. "We're a l l better off if we're a l l better educated . " For him, PLU was a place from which h e not only gai ned a n educiltion, but grew as a person. He'd l i ke t o see other students have that opportunity. " PLU is a uni que place," Cammock sa id. " I don't think mature is the right word, but it just provided the right ground for transitioning i nto adu lthood . " O n e o f the experiences h e had while a student a t PLU was a semester in Vienna, Austria. The experience d i d wonders i n shaping C a m mock and providing the bridge t o adu lthood. H e couldn't be happier to see the u n iversity embrace g l obal education and see the programs grow. " I think it's j ust a great thing to do, " Cammock sa id. " No matter where you go. "

Douglas and Vande Daniels, LC

_ I try to encourage other ch i l d ren who are ready to go college to go to PLU," Dakan said. She looks back fond ly at her time at PLU. "There weren't that many students at the time because i t w a s a hard t i m e f o r parents t o s e n d their k i d s to college." There were a lso only three buildin gs on campus. The school was co-ed with one side of the residence h a l l for boys a n d the other for gi rls. Every day they'd go to chapel something she rea l ly enjoyed. Everybody got to know each other and she sti l l stays in touch with friends. Dakan has enjoyed seeing the university grow. That is evidenced by her support of the Eastvold renovat ion. "The campus is beautiful with a l l those new buildin gs," she said . The opportun ity for an education is very important to Dakan. Her t i m e at PLC led to a career as an educator. She started as a teacher i n one room cl assroom in Manchester, Wash. and continued to Port Orchard, Wash., to Seattle to E u rope a n d finally to California. "The training a t PLU," she said, " re a l ly gave m e a great background for teaching."

"Well, why not give?" she asks with a laugh. It is a n opinion both she a n d her husband, Chris, PLU's associate provost for i nformation and technology services, share. Both see the i n herent va l ue of giving something back. Pat considers it the best - and easiest - way to "support the things that we think are i m portant." I n part i c u l a r, the couple shares a deep commitment to work o n social issues and toward social justice. It is the reason they a re actively involved with the Peace Commun ity Center in Tacoma's H i l ltop neighborhood, where Pat works largely with high school tutoring and Chris serves as president of the board of di rectors.

Co"-ey Joan

The i r commitment to social issues is also why they give to PLU. "We see both as age nts of change, " Chris said. " If that weren't true, I wo uld n't be here." Chris cites some of the th i ngs he and Pat feel PLU does so wel l - particu larly the focus on global education and the u niversity's contin ued inte rest in peacemaking. He a l so sees Project Access - the u niversity's ongoing effort to provide $3.500 in Q Club sc holarships to more than 300 students - as a worthy soc i a l issue. They believe PLU provides a different type of education, one that prepares students to become what Chris a nd Pat believe is so important - caring and active partici pants i n the issues of this world. "We want to support students who a re g iving of themselves," Pat said. " PL U does a wonderful job preparing students for that. "

Gifts in memory of a loved one are a cherished part of the close relationship with the unive rsity that are often built by PLU famil ies. There is surely no more poignant example of this than the esta b l ishment of an endowed sc ho l a rship by fa m i ly and friends in memory of Marvin J . Ramstad '38. The sc holarship i s the recognition and reaffirmation of the significance of one young man's college expe rience, a n experience that tota led only two years but wou l d serve h i m for a l ifetime. I n 1 936, at age 1 6, Marvin Ramstad left the family farm in N o rth Dakota after graduating from high schoo l . H e was headed to Pacific lutheran Co l lege where h i s cousin, Anders Ramstad (for whom Ramstad Hall was later named), was a professor of sc ience, mathematics and religion and dean of men. It was Anders Ramstad's role as founder of the PlC footba l l program that would change Marvin Ramstad's l ife. " Dad spent two years at PLU earning h i s AA degree and absolutely loved playing football there, n sa i d Marvin Ramstad's daug hter, J udge Sheryl Ramstad. " H e would often te l l us how he considered his time at PlU to be when he really got his sta rt i n l ife and how it gave him h i s fondest memories of college. H Sheryl Ra mstad said the family cou ld think of no more fitting tri bute than esta b l ishing a scholarship. "He was proud of his PLU heritage, " she said. H is time at PlU served Ramstad well. He went on to earn a degree in m i n i ng engi neering from the U niversity of Washington, ta k i n g time off to pay for school by working i n a gold mine northeast of Fairbanks, Alaska, near the Arctic Circle. He served as a naval officer in World War II, met and married Della Mae Fode and eventually settled i n North Dakota. Employed in h i s fath er-in-I aw's automobile and machi nery business, Ramstad rose through the ranks to retire as president and CEO of Midwest Motors. The M a rvin J. Ramstad E ndowed Sch olarship, total i ng $25,000, was funded 50 percent by Sheryl Ramstad and her brother, former U.S. Congressman J i m Ra mstad, and 50 percent by more than 200 other family and friends. That ma kes it among the gifts with the l a rgest number of contrib utors in university history. -Greg Brewis

Two institutions have served the South Sound region for more than 1 1 5 years have a 40-year relationship that i s both professional and p h i l a nthropic i n character. It was in 1 972 when Warren Peterson, one of the fo u n d i ng partners of Gordon, Thomas, Ho neywell, Mala nca, Peterson & Daheim (GTH), began as legal counsel for Pacific Lutheran U n iversity. Throughout the yea rs, 45 of the Tacoma firm's partners have served PLU in capacities rang i ng from labor and e m ployment law, student l i fe, w i l ls and trusts, to general counsel on business practices. Today B i l l H olt, A l a n Macpherson, Warren M a rtin a n d Va lerie Zeeck are the GTH partners who work most closely with the u niversity. Stephanie Bloomfield, another partner who also works with the unive rsity, related the story of what she cal led a n . . Antique Road Show" moment for PLU. She was referring to the work the f i rm did to gain leg a l title to a rtwork that the un iversity later sold to benefit the Scandinavian Cultural Center endowment. I n 2007, the painting by beloved Norwegian a rtist N i k olai Astrup sold at Sotheby's i n London for $525,000. In a d dition to providing the university legal advice a n d counsel, t h e firm h a s been a major benefactor o f PLU. "We were honored to help support the recent esta b l ishment of the Kurt Mayer Chair i n Holocaust Studies and we have for many years contributed funding for student scholarships at PLU, H B loomfield said. B l oomfield sa id that, from its very foundi ng, the firm has been i nvolved i n supporting commun ity organizations. G iving to PLU is a natural part of their p h i l a nth ropy. " PLU provides an im portant service to the com munity as it is one of the few private institutions of h i gher education i n the region and has a l ong-stand i ng reputation for educational excellence. .. And i n my personal v i ew, the best thing a bout having PLU as a c l ient are the people who work for the un iversity, " she said. "They p l ace a h i g h va l ue on addressing issues promptly a n d with a colla borative approach that ensu res good com m u n i cation with a l l who need to be i nvolved. " It is a pleasure work i ng with PLU and knowing that it i s a enduring asset in our commun ity."

Si nce 1 998, Intel has provided the primary grant, at $2 5,000 a year, to fund the South Sound Reg ional Science Fair, which attracts hundreds of students and exhi bits to the PLU campus each spr i n g . The fair is part of a feeder syste m, where winners eventu a l l y com pete i n the I ntel International Science and Engi neering Fair. There, individuals compete for prizes and scholarships. " Col leges and u niversities come to the Intel I nternational Science and Eng ineering Fair to recruit students and offer scholarships, H sa id Rick Meeder, corporate affairs manager at I ntel Corp. The science fair on the PLU campus fi rst started with about 1 00 students and projects, and now has grown to more than 500. "We are i nterested in science-based education and encouraging those students i n authentic research, H Meeder sa i d . Intel a lso h a s su pported Tacoma South Puget Sound Mathematics, Engi neering, Science Ach ievement (TSPS M ESA) over the years. Hosted on the PLU campus, TSPS M ESA provides academic support in math and sciences to traditionally underrepresented middle and high school students. Each year, for the last three years, I ntel has also contributed $ 1 5,000 to the Mathletes program. i n which PLU students go out to middle schools to coach students in math. and prepare them for the Wash i n gton State Math Olympiad i n t h e spri ng. Most i m portant, t h e P L U stude nts form a bond with the middle school students. and teach them that math can be fun.

A s a way of acknowledg i ng that, Joh nson - PLU's dean of student development and d i rector of Student I nvolvement and Lead ersh i p - and her husband, Kevin, have endowed the Beni lda Regis Arinto Frey Scho larship. The schola rsh i p will be awarded t o female students who, l i ke Johnson, were the fi rst i n their family to attend co l l ege. Johnson is q u i ck to point out that, as someone i n her mid30s who works at PLU, she doesn't have the money to make a sizeable one-time g ift. Eva and Kevin's g ift to PLU is made i n the form of a deferred g ift - they named PLU as the beneficiary of the i r life insurance policy. The couple doesn't have children, so this is a g reat way to honor the legacy of Eva's mother by ensuring that, in the future, other fi rst­ generation students can attend the university.

A commitment to educating the entire student If you want to see the intersection of athletics and academics in the l ives of PLU students, look no farther than Molly Stuen '72 and Zenon Ol bertz ' 7 1 . Both were athl etes at PLU - M o l l y raced for the ski team and Zenon played footba l l . The couple, who later married, met on the slopes of Whistler, B.C., where the ski team was practicing. Molly is also the granddaughter of O l e Stuen, former German, N o rweg ian, math and science professor, as wel l as the school's first basketball and ten n is coach. Ole Stuen built PLU's fi rst tennis courts, right where Red Square is today. Call it educating the entire student. It has been someth i n g P L U h a s been doing since its i n ception. A n d it is something both Ol bertz and Stuen bel ieve is worth su pporti ng. HThere are academics here, and they are the most i mpor­ tant Ol bertz sa id. " B ut there are also athletic programs here that need support - not j ust for the ath l etes [playing intercollegiate sports), but for a l l of the students. It is part of col lege life. H H

Olbertz took matters into his own hands when it was made known that the floor of Olson Audito r i u m - where one of h is two daug hters, Anella ' 1 0, played vo"eyba l l - needed resurfacing. He gathered a group of donors to help pay for it. Si nce then, he has been involved with helping the u n iversity make other athletic fac i l ity improvements. He sees it as a great way for others - a l ums and com m u n ity members - to make a connection with PLU. " People wo u l d feel m uc h closer t o t h e schoo l , " he sa id. All this wou l dn't be i m portant, Stuen and O l bertz agree, i f PLU's mission wasn't something they could believe i n . They do. The i r other daughter, E l a i ne ' 1 2, also attends PLU. Stuen, who vo l u nteers for PLU as the a l u m n i representative for her class of 1 972, points to the u niversity's cont i n u i ng focus on g l obal education, as one of many thi ngs PLU does we " . Add that t o PLU's commitment t o academ i cs, t o service even athletics - and you are educating the entire student.

hiny years ago GenT Evanson

'63, Lori (Hefty '58) Steen, Jim

Sparks '6 1 , Din�cror of Planned Giving Ed Larson '57, PLU President William o . Rieke and a few others got together ro solve a problem. At the time, PLU did not have much of an endowment. And they knew that, for the university to prosper, that needed w change. So the group initiated PLU's Heritage Society, which honors people who have made estate-plan ning provisions on behalf of the universi ty. These deferred plans include planning vehicles such as bequests, charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. "We really wanted w focus on the 'her­ itage' of the school," Evanson said. ''The people I've met here have been life-long friends; my time here was a life-changing event. It made sense �@) make plans to give ro the university [through our will]." Ed Larson, executive direcror of chari­ table estate planni ng, thinks back on those days, and the need for a long-term strategy. "\'(Te knew we were late bloomers in terms of endowment," he said. "This was a big step in solving that pwblem." Now, 30 years later, people l ike Evanson, Larson and others have been

an in tegral parr of PLU's long-term financial success. The Heritage Society now includes more than 400 families with documented deferred gifts wtaling approximately S 1 00 million. Larson also notes that many who have named PLU as a beneficiary in their will have not notified the university. He encourages those people w contact the university, if for no other reason than so PLU can "express our gratitude" ro them. And it isn't simply the older genera­ tion that is gerring involved. Jillian foss ' 1 0 thinks the same wa)'. Jillian knows she's unusual - most 2 0 1 0 graduates aren't thinking about making a will, let alone a deferred gift to their universi ty. But after she finished PLU, she had a lirrle money left over from what was given to her by her grandfather, and decided ro make a deferred gift ro PLU through her will. She knew she could help PLU con tinue ro have long-term financial stability, not only after she graduated, but into perpetuity. "It just made sense to me," Foss said. "[ don't want my degree at PLU w lose its value." Members of the Heritage Society include those who have commirred to

one or more of the following deferred gi fts: bequest, charitable remainder trust, charitable gift annuity, life insur­ ance, gift of residence or farm with a retained life estate, or making PLU a beneficiary of a retirement account. Larson said there is the obvious bene­ fit ro those who have joined the Heritage Society - the $ 1 00 million in expected gifts. Bur there is another ben­ e fi t, roo. When people see that others are participating in the long-term finan­ cial health of the universi ty, it builds confidence. And others are more inclined ro take part. " I t is a testimony to other people," Larson said. "It lets them know that there is other money in the pipeline. And that is great for the university." �

The swi mming program is part of the greater PLU comm u n i ty, and as their coach I want them to have the best experience they can have while they're srudents ar PLU."

Busy dad envisions healthy 'Plan B' for parents ust l i ke so many other fam i lies, Peter G radwohl '90 and his wife, Andrea, once struggled to balance busy work sched u les with the stress of providing healthy food for their t h ree kids. So, three years ago, with people l i ke themselves in mind, the G radwo hls launched Fantazimo, a Seattle-based company that packs well-balanced lu nches for local school kids. "I kind of had an ah-ha moment," Peter G radwohl said, "when I was mak­ ing three lu nches." Creating options every day was no easy task. Especially for the G radwohl's youngest son, M ajor, who suffe rs fro m Celiac disease, an i ntOlerance t o gluten. G radwoh l began seriously thinking about convenient alternatives to pack­ ing lunches every day. Fantazimo Foods was the solution. I n partnership with the Seattle cater­ i ng firm Gretchen's Shoebox Exp ress, parents can order lunches online by 4 p . m . and lunches will be delivered to schools and camps the next day. Fanrazimo cu rrently offers seven d i f­ fe ren t entree selections, i ncluding a bar­ beque ch icken wrap, a chicken and cheddar sandwich, and sides such as apple wedges, carrot sticks and string cheese. Each lunch comes with an en tree, a vegetable, fru i t, p rotein and a
