HELP YOUR LIBRARY ASSESS ITS SERVICES
The Library seeks input from all students, faculty and patrons with a quick, online survey that will help the library staff gauge usage, services, and to anticipate future needs. This valuable assessment tool takes less than five minutes to complete, and we request all Wentz patrons, including seminarians on internship, to fill out the online survey. Help to keep the library supernal. See the link to the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZSQBLQ3.

This six credit course runs from Memorial Day until right before July 4. The course has a full scholarship for ELCA Seminarians and the housing costs have been greatly reduced through the homestay option. One does not have to be fluent in Spanish to benefit from this course! Here is what one stuent,Cindy Robles, wrote about it: "The Summer Intensive in Hispanic Ministry was not only about learning the language. The experience was more about learning the culture. I can now see the world with a new lens. I learned about the "other" by living with them, worshipping with them and becoming "familia." This experience was very enriching academically with the amazing instructors we had who were all Latino." Register by Apr. 30.
