Tuesday Talks

Tuesday Talks is a weekly lunch series sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain and the Hendrix Miller Center. Each week a faculty or staff member of the Hendrix College community is invited to talk for ten minutes and answer the following question, "What is my calling/vocation and how do I know?" This event is open to the entire Hendrix community (faculty, staff, students) and is held in the Bates Dining Hall. There is no charge for students on a meal plan and for students without a meal plan, the charge is $1. The program has been extremely successful in helping the college, students, faculty and staff understand their vocation. Since the program began four years ago, the average attendance has gone from 75 to 140.
