Fidel Castro’s Daughter Alina Shares Her Story

As Alina Fernández tells it, the revolution that has smothered freedom in Cuba for more than 50 years has never stifled the desire of Cubans for better lives.

The exiled daughter of Fidel Castro pensively told the dozens of students, faculty, staff, and members of the community in the GCU Casino on March 11 that she “hopes someday that will happen.”

In the meantime, Ms. Fernández said, she will continue to offer her personal witness of events that transformed Cuba into a repressed nation and impacted much of the entire world.

Ms. Fernández, who fled Cuba in 1993, is the author of Castro’s Daughter: An Exile’s Memoir of Cuba and host of a Miami radio show, Simplemente Alina (“Simply Alina”), on which she often interviews artists and musicians. Working with artistry herself during the presentation at GCU, Ms. Fernandez created a picture of the revolution as she had known it, brushed with pathos, color, and touches of humor.

Georgian Court’s Mercy Garden Grows

mercygardenlacrosse

 

GEORGIAN COURT’S MERCY GARDEN continues to grow in more ways than one. The effort, which launched in late 2011, has produced a variety of vegetables to be shared with local charities. The community vegetable garden helps provide food for local food banks and charities and demonstrates sustainable agricultural practices within our community. Garden leaders also teach participants to grow food for themselves and others within our community. The ongoing project also offers the extended community a hands-on opportunity to learn sustainable concepts and practices while also teaching students about the creation, tending and harvesting of a true garden.  Since the program’s launch, the garden has become a hot spot for volunteers willing to “dig deep” and also serves as a lecture/demonstration site for area residents interested in using the Mercy Garden as a model for creating projects in their own backyards and communities.

Pictures Worth a Thousand Words

Georgian Court University’s beauty is breathtaking and provides the perfect backdrop for GCU’s semi-annual photo shoots. Each spring and fall, students volunteer to stroll across campus, pose for pictures in laboratories, and let their guard down in the dining room, residence halls, between stacks of library books, or even in the Wellness Center weight room. See for yourself in images from a recent shoot, led by GCU web manager Rich Berardi and award-winning photographer Bill Cain.
