Walking in the world

Maple Scholars participate in a writing and sustainability walk around Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center last summer.

When professor of English Ann Hostetler proposed a new course, Walking in the World, for her final May term before retirement, she couldn’t have predicted that students would be walking across all regions of the country, quarantined in the places many of them call home.

This mindful walking takes place amid a pandemic, which Hostetler said they didn’t plan for, but they have made it work.
