Emily MacArthur MC'99 writes: It’s been ten years since I graduated from Monmouth. I was an economics major, but I minored in Classics and I went on the Classics trip to Turkey and Greece in May of 1999.  While much of what I learned in my classes on ancient Greece has remained vivid in my mind, my lessons in economics have long since faded from memory.  From time to time, I still sing Sappho’s poem about watching the path of the Pleiades while waiting for her lover.  And last week, I sat in my car long after my lunch break was over to finish listening to a conversation on NPR with the author of Black Athena.  I could not care less about Reaganomics!  Back in my Monmouth days, I was hell-bent on majoring in something my parents deemed practical, and that led me to 10 years of soul-crushing office jobs.  In my Classics classes, I learned to make connections between different cultures and ideas.  Psychology is a Greek word after all, is it not?  The themes we discussed in the Iliad and the Odyssey are as meaningful today as they were in Homer’s time. 

Duncan McPherson '98 works at Buzz Monkey Software (so many game companies have ridiculous names), where he has been a lead game designer there, although the plan is to elevate him to the role of producer for my next project. He is working on a little in-house original property at the moment as the ersatz sound designer and composer... providing value where he can and all that.. He finished work as lead designer on Army of Two: The 40th Day (PSP) this past November. Prior to that, he was the lead designer on the Wii & PS2 versions of Tomb Raider: Underworld.
