Richard West, right, greets criminal justice majors during a recent tour of the new Rennard Strickland house at Bacone.
Bacone College Trustee Richard West talked about his memories of living on campus as a child as he peeked out window blinds into the backyard of the home he once lived in on Faculty Row.
“My dad was a superb gardener,” West said about the remnants of a rock walkway and a rock enclosure which once surrounded a lush weeping willow.
Then he looked around what was his parents’ bedroom and said, “I think this is going to be a very nice place for the Criminal Justice Department.”

It seems time has flown by this semester and Football Homecoming is already upon us.
This year’s Homecoming game vs. Wayland Baptist begins at 2 p.m. Saturday Oct. 25 at the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Field at Indian Bowl.
There are special events planned all week, including:
With their colorful attire and vibrant personalities, the Imani Milele group set the standard for how worship is to be done at the Oct. 14 Bacone Hour.
Their sheer energy and excitement alone was enough to peel paint off the walls.
For what they expressed was not only a longing of equality, but a chance to live free without interference.
Words cannot emulate the impact of statements they conveyed, not only here, but on other forefronts as well.
Anyone in attendance for that special Bacone Hour was witness of the Lord’s work.
It made many empathize with their situations, but also gaze at the miraculous rebirth of such youthful individuals.
The elegance and pure devotion portrayed evidence of constant struggle and frequent misfortune.
If you were not there, you truly missed out on something special.
