Welcome Back

By Laura Pope Robbins
September 2, 2010

As Faculty Advisor for the Lion’s Voice, I want to welcome everyone back to campus this fall. It was a quiet summer around here without your voices and presence, and you were missed. Though the Lion’s Voice is now an online only publication, I hope you’ll stop by to read articles, contribute comments, or contribute your own articles. Our desire is to be the voice of students on this campus, and we need your input for that to happen. I wish you all a great semester!

No More Rice-A-Roni!

By Arianna Johnson

Rice is one of the most universal foods. It is eaten everywhere, from Japan to Morocco, and is accessible to virtually anyone. For something that is considered a ‘poor-man’s’ food, rice can make, and accompany, some of the most delicious dishes. One of those dishes is the creamy, dreamy risotto. Where risotto originated is up for debate; however, the one fact that is concrete is that it was invented in Italy. Whether it was in the North or South or first made by a glass painter or a peasant doesn’t really matter.

Remembering Professor Jim Eder

By Dr. Christian Perring and Prof. Virginia Walker
September 6, 2010

Jim Eder first started teaching Philosophy courses at Dowling in Fall 2001. As Department Chair, I had interviewed him and recommended him to be hired, and it was one of my best decisions in ten years in that job. Jim had 35 years experience teaching at Northport High School and he wanted to stay productive after he had retired. He taught at Dowling every semester after that until he passed away at the end of November 2009.
