Short Shakespeareans :: Sherry Schreck has built her life and reputation on her love of children and Shakespeare and her unbridled imagination.

All that Remains :: Nearly two-thirds of the Lewis and Clark Trail is under man-made reservoirs. Another one-quarter is buried under subdivisions, streets, parks, banks, and other modern amenities. Almost none of the original landscape is intact. No one appreciates this contrast like author and historian Martin Plamondon II, who has reconciled the explorers' maps with the modern landscape.

Full Circle :: Steve Jones and Tim Murray want to make the immense area of eastern Washington, or at least a good chunk of it, less prone to blow, less often bare, even more unchanging. The way they'll do this is to convince a plant that is content to die after it sets seed in late summer that it actually wants to live.

Listening to His Heart :: As a student at WSU in the late '60s, Ken Alhadeff questioned authority with zeal. "I was part of a group of folks that marched down the streets of Pullman to President Terrell's house with torches, demanding that the Black Studies Program not be eliminated. It was a war between us and those insensitive, bureaucratic regents," says Alhadeff...who is now a regent.

WSU has long-standing ties to Pakistan

M. "Ghazi" Ghazanfar (front row center, red tie) is among friends, many of them Washington State University or University of Idaho alumni. (See caption below.) In December 2003 he was invited to Pakistan to lecture at a seminar hosted by the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) in Lahore. He formerly lived in Karachi for nearly 11 years. In 1958 he enrolled at WSU as a freshman, and earned bachelor's and master's degrees, as well as a doctorate in economics. He taught for 35 years at Idaho, where he chaired the economics department from 1993 to 2002.

Seminar attendees included a number of UVAS faculty members. Those WSU graduates in the photo are designated by their years and degrees below.

WSU has long-standing educational ties to Pakistan. The West Pakistan Agricultural University, formerly Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute at Lyallpur, 85 miles southwest of Lahore, was an outgrowth of the Inter-College Exchange Program between WSU and the University of Punjab in Lahore, begun in 1954 during the administration of President C. Clement French and terminated in 1962.
