“The presentation by Dr. Bateman was a delightful experience. The entire audience was involved, responsive, and very entertained. In our world today of recession, health care worries, wars and personal losses, her lecture was the perfect antidote and a wonderful way to spend a few hours. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation. Dr. Bateman is undoubtedly a fantastic asset to the college.”

I certainly appreciate your scheduling Nigel Allan as a speaker. Your lecture series is a wonderful enrichment for our community.”
