For Dr. Meadors, engaging in "the great conversation" of philosophy is key to living a fulfilling life. "Students should study philosophy because the world is a many-splendored thing, a beautiful gift from God in its dizzying variety and scope.  A careful study of philosophy renders the world more richly hued and more sharply focused," he explains.

Through her teaching, Dr. Melancon combines two of her greatest loves: English and social justice. She says English matters because language matters, and language is tied up in power, which is a major component of social justice. 

Profound Professors: Mr. Steve Cook

Profound Professors: Mr. Steve Cook

"I promise I'm not making any of this up" is Steve Cook's catch phrase. This semester, I've had the honor of finally having Mr. Cook for a class, Drawing III, and I have already heard that sentence uttered dozens of times. That's because Mr. Cook, a professor in the Art Department, is full of wildly interesting and unbelievable stories that fascinate his students. An instructor in printmaking, drawing, aesthetics, and painting here at MC, Mr. Cook has led an adventurous life, impacting many.
