The Library Archives: Treasure Hunt

October 01, 2000

To the untrained eye, the assortment of books, maps, files, and artifacts housed in the Hugh and Hazel Darling Library's Mrs. Irving Stone Room may appear totally unrelated. But to Ken Otto, M.S., MLIS, special collections librarian, everything is connected. In describing the more than 13,000-piece Special Collections, Otto sheds his role as librarian and becomes a historian. With enthusiasm, he explains how California's history is connected to the beginning of the city of Azusa and the Azusa Foothill Citrus Association. He then shares how the city's history is tied to the history of Azusa Pacific University, which is, of course, linked to longtime President Cornelius P. Haggard.

Technology in Missions: The Future of Missions

October 01, 2000

"One of the highlights of the visit to the leprosy center was spending time with the patients in their living quarters. We went from bed to bed, listening in amazement to each heartbreaking tale. It became clear to us how significant Christ's healing of the leper truly was. It's fascinating to see how these experiences bring to life the Scriptures we have known for years and how God can use each person in so many unique ways."

A Liberal Education: From Athens to Azusa

A Tale of Two Students

September 01, 2000

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was an age of wisdom, it was an age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us. . ." –A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens

Spend a Semester at Oxford: American Invasion

August 01, 2000

Imagine walking with C. S. Lewis along the River Cherwell, taking tea with John Wesley in the dining hall of Christ Church College, sitting in afternoon tutorials with Percy Bysshe Shelley, and waking each morning to see the gray spires of Oxford University piercing the Anglican sky. For 18 Azusa Pacific University students, this scenario will become a reality this fall as they pack their notebooks and board a jet for England. While they will not actually encounter those aforementioned alumni, they will follow in the footsteps of many brilliant and erudite scholars by participating in a long tradition of academic excellence, all made possible through APU's new Oxford Semester Program.
