Free Jan Krist Concert
Jan Krist comes to SPU on Thursday, February 2, 7:30 p.m. to perform originals from her various albums, including her newest release, “When Planets Collide" (2004), in the Seattle Pacific University Art Center. Krist's 1993 recording, “Decapitated Society" was selected by Billboard magazine as that year's best album in a (broadly defined) gospel genre. She hits the range of social satire, spiritual longing, stark truthfulness, and mischievous fun in her music. Rooted in Detroit, she has earned a devoted nationwide following in the last 15 years with expert guitar playing (including amazing open tunings), literate lyrics, and the indescribable ratio between emotion, honesty, and humor. Admission is free.

European Quarter Study Abroad Spring 2007
SPU's 20th European Quarter fittingly begins in Rome, where "Europe" began and 2500 years of history have left visible traces. After Easter (celebrated in Rome!), the group travels to Sorrento (also visiting Naples and Pompeii) and Florence. Then it's on to Vienna for more art and glorious music (as well as Freud and Frankl) and then Berlin where politics and the European Union will be our focus. After experiencing Strasbourg, students select intensive language programs onsite in Germany and France. You need not be a foreign language student to seize this excellent opportunity to broaden your cultural, philosophical, political, spiritual, and communicational horizons. For more information please contact Kevin Gibbons at gibbok@spu.edu or (206)-281-2670.
