Thomas Nelson Community College’s (TNCC) Department of Communications, Humanities  and Social Sciences presents “Welcome to the Far East of Nowhere?” The faculty colloquium will examine the Peace Corps and its operations in Mongolia. Free and open to the public, the 90-minute presentation begins at 2 p.m. on Monday, September 17 in the Espada Conference Center, Moore Hall on the Hampton campus.

TNCC Adjunct Professor of English Christopher LaPointe will describe his experiences as a member of the Peace Corps. He served in Mongolia from June 2007 to August 2009, but stayed in the country an extra year to experience the culture. LaPointe hopes to appeal to those interested in joining the Peace Corps as well as those who are “simply interested in multicultural experiences.”
