Inauguration of President Betz - Events

Tuesday, April 17th

Every day our faculty staff and students are committed to learning and exploring their chosen discipline. The impact of their contributions was discovered at a campus-wide symposium where discussions and celebrations of research, scholarly activities and creative pursuits were shared and displayed.

Labyrinth

Heartland Plaza (Outdoor area west of Y Chapel)

Central’s 11-circuit outdoor grass Labyrinth design includes one meandering path that starts at the outer edge and encircles the center. The walker starts the path at the beginning and follows the twists and turns of the path which lead the walker to the center of the design; after spending time in the center, the walker returns on the same path back out from the center, arriving at the beginning. The walker is encouraged to reflect on the thoughts that come and go as they moved along the path; often times these thoughts provide interesting insights and clarity for the walker. The Labyrinth experience was facilitated by Dr. Diane Rudebock of the Department of Kinesiology & Health Studies.
