Students Pinned at First-Ever Belleville Campus Convocation
Students, faculty, staff, and administrators assembled Wednesday for the Lindenwood University’s first-ever convocation ceremony at its Belleville campus.
President James D. Evans and vice presidents Jann Weitzel and Jerry Bladdick welcomed the university’s historic first group of undergraduate day students in Belleville. After remarks from administrators, each Lindenwood employee at the Belleville campus “adopted” a group of students and offered them a Lindenwood pin, and the students later pinned one another. Bladdick told students to keep the pins in anticipation of wearing them on their regalia when they become Lindenwood’s first graduating class from the daytime Belleville campus.
Join us and other Chicago-area alumni for a luncheon and networking opportunity. Mingle with local alums, reminisce with your old friends and former classmates, and hear about the exciting things happening at Lindenwood. President James D. Evans and Mrs. Evans look forward to meeting you and encourage you to attend. Lunch will be provided and guests are welcome to attend.

Keith “Feetz” Fietsam Scholarship Day at Busch Stadium
Join Lindenwood University, friends, and family of alumnus Keith Fietsam as we celebrate Fietsam Day at the ballpark. Enjoy the last St. Louis Cardinal’s home game of the regular season on Sunday, October 4, at 1:15 p.m., as we honor the memory of Keith Fietsam.
Keith Fietsam was a 2003 undergraduate with a B.S. in Human Resources and a 2005 graduate with an M.S. in Human Resources. Keith brought his faith in God, life, energy, and intelligence to the classroom, his fellow students, and to the game of baseball. He played and coached the sport throughout his career at Lindenwood and beyond. On campus, Keith was instrumental in spearheading sport activities; he was a young man who enjoyed meeting and getting to know those around him both at the University and in the community.
His wife, Katie Fietsam (’06), has established a scholarship to honor his memory and to bring worthy student athletes to study and play the sport of baseball at Lindenwood University. In addition, the Keith Fietsam Scholarship Fund has sponsored this day at the ballpark, tickets are $30 and proceeds go to benefit the scholarship fund. To purchase tickets, please email email@example.com.
Lindenwood Psychology Department Seeks Volunteers
Lindenwood University is proud to host the Fifth Annual Missouri Undergraduate Psychology Conference (MUPC) on Friday, November 6th and Saturday November 7th, in the Spellmann Center (www.lindenwood.edu/mupc). Lindenwood is the third host institution for this relatively new conference; the past two hosts, Avila University and Northwest Missouri State University are both in the west end of the state, and we are excited to bring the conference to Lindenwood to attract our east-side neighbors to this conference. Lindenwood has already contributed to the growth of the conference by introducing a new conference mascot and by hosting the conference on two days rather than one as in past years.
Lindenwood psychology majors have been presenting their original research projects at past MUPC conferences and many have received awards for their outstanding performance. This year’s conference will feature Dr. Henry L. Roediger III of Washington University as the keynote speaker and a Friday night pizza session with exchange tables highlighting various useful topics including how to prepare for the Graduate Record Exams (GRE), how to prepare a winning resume, and the like. We are also looking for volunteer psychology alumni to come share their post-graduate experiences with the students at these tables on Friday evening. If you are interested in helping out, please contact the MUPC committee, firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Michiko Nohara-LeClair at email@example.com.
