    I liked this article because it showed a very human side of the Gilbert’s. I didn’t know that Brother Gilbert was interested in Asian studies and probably culture. I respect him a lot more because of how well rounded I now know he is.

    I love this! I think it is is so important to be able to relate to the leaders of our university. I had now idea that Sister Gilbert was born in Indiana, that’s my home state!
