Max Maven, named “one of the 100 most influential magicians of the 20th century” by Magic Magazine, impresses audiences with his mind-reading ability, as he determines which cards a student holds behind his back. Max gave the first major performance in The Theory and Art of Magic: Series II this fall, a semester-long scholarly celebration of the magical arts. The series included performances, workshops and lectures. For more ’Berg magic, check out the Discovery Channel on Feb. 13 at 10 p.m. when professor Larry Hass will be a guest analyst on a special about the “science of magic.”



Wescoe School offers scholarships
to local firefighters

The Wescoe School is now offering free courses to members of the Allentown Fire Department (AFD) through a unique scholarship program that will allow three AFD firefighters to enroll in one free course each per semester.

According to the agreement, the courses may be audited or taken for credit. The scholarship recipients will be nominated by the fire chief and will be subject to regular admission requirements.

For more than a year, The Wescoe School (formerly known as the Muhlenberg Evening College) has offered similar scholarships to members of the Allentown Police Department.

“The College is interested in contributing to the quality of life in our community,” says Dr. James Brennan, dean of The Wescoe School. “Our civil servants do a terrific job and this is one way of honoring their outstanding service.”

The Wescoe School of Muhlenberg College offers accelerated degree programs in business administration, human resource management and information systems in Allentown and Easton, as well as a traditional liberal arts program and summer study. The Wescoe School is named for Clark Wescoe ’41, MD, one of the College’s most distinguished graduates.
