Story posted April 14, 2000

This weekend Bowdoin marks the 30th anniversary of the John Brown Russwurm African American Center. "The Essence of Four Walls: Past Present and Future," features events that incorporate the past, through alumni/ae involvemtn; the present, through student participation; and the future, through the inclusion of prospective students via the Bowdoin Experience.

The Russwurm Center has not only served as a centerpiece of the experience of the African American Society members , but it has also enriched the Bowdoin community both academically and socially.

53 alumni/ae and seven former faculty members are returning to campus for receptions, panel discussions, speeches, and social gatherings. At the same time, 72 prospective students are visiting the College to learn about the Bowdoin Experience and discover whether Bowdoin is where they will spend the next four years.

These groups will come together with current students for Common Hour with Tamara Nikuradse 84, a writer and businesswoman; the Masque and Gown presentation of "Evita;" a lunch and discussion of "Making a Difference in the World" with alumni/ae who are doing just that; and a celebration dinner.
