Thank you!

Dear donors,


I write to express my appreciation for your generous support of the field study experience for my Spring 2018 Making and Faking Scriptures course. Students have begun to enroll, and I am confident that between your funding and additional resources at CC, most, if not all, of the costs for students will be covered. The New York City trip is a wonderful opportunity for deep learning and cultural experiences, which will now be accessible to more students through your contribution.


On behalf of my future students in the course and the Department of Religion, I thank you.

"Making and Faking Scriptures was one of my favorite classes that I have taken at Colorado College... The coursework was fascinating!

We were able to cover a plethora of interesting information and the readings were fantastic. We also had time to explore the city but most of us stayed in the museums because there was so much to see!

Overall, this trip was one for the books and I still rave about it today. I do not just talk about the NYC aspect but also the class content and the amount I learnt along the way!"
