b2ap3_thumbnail_Jacquelyn-Core.jpgDr. Jacquelyn Core, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Waynesburg University, recently presented lectures in Rome and near Venice for the University of Dallas’s Shakespeare in Italy academic travel program.

Held in the Pantheon in Rome and near Venice, Dr. Core’s lectures addressed the geographical settings of Shakespearean plays as well as the construction and design of the Pantheon. Sharing her insight on cultural geography, Dr. Core explored the significance of Shakespeare’s selection of certain cities for his Italian plays.

Throughout his works, Shakespeare frequently used ancient Rome, Venice, and Renaissance Italy to consider questions of love, honor, freedom and self-government.

The Shakespeare in Italy program is facilitated through the University of Dallas’s Eugene Constantin Campus in Due Santi, a historic district south of Rome near the cities of Marino and Frattocchie.

Dr. Core holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science, a Ph.D. in human geography and a Juris Doctorate from West Virginia University.

The Waynesburg University Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science and the Office of Admissions will host a fall Mock Crime Scene Workshop Saturday, Nov. 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

The Mock Crime Scene Workshop provides high school students the opportunity to analyze crime scenes and collect and process evidence alongside Waynesburg University students and faculty, as well as experts in the field. 

Students will gain hands-on training from skilled experts in the forensic sciences and have the opportunity to utilize those practices by applying them at a crime scene. The vast array of sessions offered will help students to determine if they can see a forensic science or criminal justice career in their futures. 

“The Mock Crime Scene weekend gives the current students, faculty and staff the opportunity to meet prospective students and show them, through experience, what they can expect by attending Waynesburg University,” said Faith Musko, instructor of forensic science. “Our goal is to excite them about our programs, the opportunities available to them and assist them with making lasting connections with our community.” 

Every year, typically more than 40 current high school juniors and seniors attend the event. 

To register or for more information, contact the Office of Admissions at 800-225-7393.
