Tsotsis Family Academic Center

Assumption College invites the community to join members of the Tsotsis family and President Francesco C. Cesareo, Ph.D. for a ribbon cutting for its newly constructed state-of-the-art learning center that encourages creative thinking, the sharing of ideas and collaboration across a broad spectrum of academic disciplines, reflecting the College’s deep devotion to the liberal arts and the Catholic intellectual tradition.

In this new 62,000 square-foot building, the enduring ideas of the Western liberal arts tradition intersect with contemporary theories and practices while a passion for the performing arts is nurtured in the 400-seat performance hall. A spacious ballroom with a balcony overlooking the College’s picturesque campus will be the site of many meetings, conferences, weddings and other special events.
 
Following the ribbon cutting, the community is welcome to tour the building and watch performances of the Assumption College Band or Chorale and interact with students and faculty as they demonstrate how learning is transformed in the new academic building.

One of the most enduring and profound legacies of the Protestant Reformation was its redefinition of the relationship between heaven and earth and the natural and supernatural. This lecture by Carlos Eire, Ph.D., T.L. Riggs Professor of History and Religious Studies at Yale University will focus on several Catholic saints who levitated and bilocated and received direct messages from heaven – phenomena considered “impossible” by Protestants -- and on the ways in which these extreme miracles considered “impossible” by many in our own day and age were not just a response to Protestantism, but a way of reshaping Catholicism itself.

Speaker: Flagg Taylor

The tradition of liberal education recognizes and respects us as persons, but this kind of education is increasingly threatened today.  Our situation within the academy exhibits significant parallels with the status of human beings caught in the grip of ideology in totalitarian regimes.

Jeanne Y. Curtis Performance Hall in the Tsotsis Family Academic Center

How did fashionable hotels provide musical entertainment for their salon guests in a pre-radio, mid-19th century world?  Enter the European Salon Orchestra (ESO).  Often comprised of the soloists from the respective sections of a local full-sized orchestra, these pocket symphonies featured a violin, viola, cello, bass, piano, flute, clarinet, trumpet and percussion, as well as a vocalist. Musical fare included excerpts from light classics, well-known theatrical tunes, and arrangements of many of the popular songs usually performed in parlor settings at social events among polite company.  As the accompaniment to many a lunchtime conversation, one imagines there were few cymbal crashes!
