What Have You Podcast - New Saint Andrews College

What Have You

Bekah Merkle and Rachel Jankovic are two sisters getting together for a weekly coffee date (in the car) to chat about whatever issues happen to occur to them. They cover the waterfront of topics from confessing sins to sorting the laundry to what books they’re reading at the moment. Unscripted and unfiltered, these two NSA alums invite you to join them for a chat about what have you.

What Else is New?

Upcoming Music Events This Fall

New Saint Andrews students and faculty are enjoying a busy fall performing in Moscow and beyond. The many events, recitals, classes, and more, are listed here in this update. Put the events of the Conservatory of Music on your calendar.

New Developments at the 2019 Alumni Weekend

On September 20th, over fifty alumni returned to the Skattaboe building on Main Street for fellowship, encouragement, and to gain a vision for the college's development. They held a vocational panel for current students, dined in the newly purchased building, and many entered into the college's new mentorship program.

Lecturer Brian Kohl Brings Oxford Training to Rhetoric

New Saint Andrews College warmly welcomes another Oxford-trained instructor to our faculty. Brian Kohl—New Saint Andrews alumnus and Oxford M.St. graduate student—is joining the college as an Instructor of Rhetoric.

Dr. McIntosh’s Scholarly Work on Tolkien Nominated for Award

Dr. McIntosh's scholarly work on the metaphysics of J.R.R. Tolkien is snowballing attention. Recently, it was one of five works nominated by the Mythopoeic Society for its 2019 Scholarship Award. In this article, Dr. McIntosh explains his intentions with the book, the reason for its title, and its serendipitous origins.

Rowing Club: From Nothing to Nationals

As a rower, Zach Ewell is used to hearing such encouragements as, “Pull your guts out!” It’s indicative of the grit that's required in the sport. And it’s what he needed to compete for New Saint Andrews in the ACRA Rowing Nationals 2019 after being away from the oars for four years. Now he’s bringing the same toughness—along with four boats and rowing equipment—to the rowing club.

Necessity is the Mother of Inventio

“I was terrified going in,” sophomore Lonna Lindstrom said about our week-long Latin course, Conventiculum. But because of the course’s unique activities (pottery and cooking for example) and its immersive technique, Lonna’s confidence and comfortability grew significantly: “[By the end of the week] I was talking to myself in Latin when I was cleaning my room.”
