The Surprising Places Our Wonder Leads: New RECORD Explores Curiosity

Scientists say curiosity is like a mental itch that the “scratch” of discovery satisfies. Eleanor Roosevelt called it “the most useful gift” she could ever wish on a child. Albert Einstein advised youth to “never lose holy curiosity.” 

The fall issue of The RECORD, titled “Just Curious,” addresses the wonder of wonder experienced by alumni and students:

  • A pediatric cardiologist explores virtual reality as training for surgeons.
  • A student raised in the “plain and simple” traditions of the Mennonite church discovers deep, personal value in Catholic traditions performed against the ornate surrounds of an archabbey.
  • A choral director unleashes his curiosity to solve a pressing problem: how to cultivate ensemble skills and still observe pandemic-driven “rules.”

Problems, surprises, discoveries, and challenges unfold in other stories, too. Read the fall 2020 RECORD, “Just Curious,” below.
