Read with students for Hearthside Project

Read a book of your choice with up to three students in an informal environment as part of the Hearthside Project. How often you meet and the choice of book are up to you, though the text is strongly encouraged to relate to the key role of the humanities in contemporary thought.


Hearthside is sponsored by the Harry and Polly Slife Professorship in Humanities and the McCoy Family Distinguished Chair in Lutheran Heritage and Mission. If you would like to run a group or if you have questions, contact Dr. Zak Montgomery.

Sessions available with TIAA adviser

No matter where you are in life — just getting started or planning for retirement — a session with Richie Diaz can help you create a plan for your goals. You’ll get answers to these questions and more:


Am I invested in the right mix of investments to help meet my goals?
Am I saving enough to create the retirement income I need?
How do I take income from my retirement account once I stop working?


Diaz will be on campus in LIB 352 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 21-22. Schedule your appointment online.
