Summer 2011 | Good Things

Summer 2011 magazine

The grace of life’s simple pleasures

Chief among the things that make summers memorable are friendship, happiness and pleasant memories. In this issue we celebrate all three, along with many more of life’s simple pleasures.

On the cover: Summertime brings with it an easier pace. At St. Norbert, the semester-time schedule gives way to summer-session courses that leave half days free for solitary study, or simply time to find a tranquil spot on our tree-canopied campus.
