Soil, climate, location and topography are key ingredients of terroir. Thanks to its location, Linfield has become engaged in the growing Oregon wine industry. In this issue we follow five Linfield students who gained an in-depth look at the business from vine to wine to consumer. We say farewell to seven faculty who retire with a total of 179 years of service to the college. Two students share their Linfield experiences: one who is committed to service on every level, and the other whose life was forever changed by a literature class. These and other stories are but a few examples of how Linfield is creating a sense of place for all students through dedicated faculty, experiential learning, partnerships with Northwest industries, and a commitment to service. Students are finding terroir – their place – at Linfield and in the world. – Mardi Mileham 15 a commitment to service Mariah Torres ’14 is committed to service, whether it is helping people in need around the world, or helping fellow students to build a lifelong relation- ship with Linfield College. 18 my olympic experience Nadine (Ingersoll) Kincaid ’76 shares stories of her experience serving as a volunteer at four Olympic Games. 21 a lookout for a new genre An English class changed one student’s life, and he and a professor are now completing a project that is the first of its kind – an anthology of fire lookout stories.
