I can’t believe it all fits under my pillow.
Like a tooth waiting to meet the Tooth Fairy, my speech rests beneath my head for eight hours straight. Why? Because Grace Fala told me to.
Over 20 years ago, Juniata biology professor Todd Gustafson, now retired, decided to design a course that combined science with popular interest. Jeff Demarest, professor of biology, encouraged Gustafson to get the course on the books. Three years ago, Demarest took over. The course was called “Art and Science of Brewing,” and two decades later, it is still offered to all students every spring.
Marvin Gaye may have heard it through the grapevine, but Peter Baran, associate professor of chemistry at Juniata College, is using grapevines to teach students a little bit about reactions, fermentation, chemical analysis, sugars, and phenols. Heck, let’s just admit it — he’s teaching them about wine. In fact, the course is called Wine Chemistry.
Each year, the Dean of Students Office makes a free Academic Planner/Calendar available for all members of the Juniata Community. And you get to pick the cover!
