Description: Join us as we prepare for the new term with presentations by IPFW’s vice chancellor for student affairs George McClellan and Northern Arizona University professor Cathy Small. In 2002, Small enrolled as a full-time college freshman. As an anthropologist, she used her discipline’s scholarly methods (ethnography) to study today’s college students and published her account in My Freshman Year under the pseudonym "Rebekah Nathan." Small comes to IPFW to share how the experience changed her as a professor.
