New exhibit celebrates 50 years of the College of Humanities at BYU

To commemorate its 50th anniversary, the College of Humanities will hold a grand opening for its new exhibition, Celebrating 50 Years of Fluency in the Human Conversation, Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 4 to 7 p.m., in the Joseph F. Smith Building's Education in Zion Gallery. 

To commemorate its 50th anniversary, the College of Humanities will hold a grand opening for its new exhibition, Celebrating 50 Years of Fluency in the Human Conversation, Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 4 to 7 p.m., in the Joseph F. Smith Building's Education in Zion Gallery. 

Besides highlighting important milestones in the college's history, the exhibit features the success stories of students and alumni and demonstrates the innovative ways they have used their degrees.

"We study the varieties of human accomplishment, in particular how that variety is shared across time and space using languages of all kinds," said College of Humanities dean J. Scott Miller. "We invite you to take a tour of the exhibit and learn more about the humanities and how a humanities education at BYU does, indeed, make the world our campus."

The opening will allow visitors to contribute their own stories and will include remarks from Dean Miller, live jazz music, five language choir performances, a photo op for an alumni photo mosaic, and refreshments. For more information, contact Melinda Semadeni at 801-422-2824 or melinda_semadeni@byu.edu.
