Making an Entrance
In this issue, MBC’s newest faculty members reveal poignant lessons students have taught them, their theme songs, and their favorite college-logo-emblazoned items. We asked one person from each of our four Schools of Excellence to share a little more about their plans for professorship at Mary Baldwin. Of course, we published their answers.

Our Students. Our World. Better Together.
Boldly Baldwin art director Gretchen Long created a word cloud to represent the most commonly used words on Mary Baldwin College’s web pages related to the Spencer Center, which resulted in the dynamic graphic on pages 10 and 11. It’s easy (and free!) to make your own at

Here’s another example, using the text of the feature article related to the Heifetz International Music Institute.

Wise Women
While exploring the 2011–12 campus-wide theme, Wisdom, we excerpted stories from several alumnae about the women who influenced their lives through wise words and actions. But nothing compares to hearing those dynamic women speak from the heart about their mothers, grandmothers, and mentors. Listen as Margie Bivans ’10, Lynn Tuggle Gilliland ’80, and Martha Gates-Mawson ’78 share memories and pictures of their wise women.

The next issue of Boldly Baldwin will explore MBC's new graduate programs in Health Sciences.
