Krisher to Open Monmouth Associates Series with Sept. 18 Talk on Galapagos Islands


What it’s like to live and work on the Galapagos Islands will kick off this year’s Monmouth Associates series, a college-community luncheon series featuring Monmouth College speakers.

Kristy Krisher, who serves as Monmouth’s associate director of employer relations and internship director, will speak at noon Sept. 21 at Meks on Main, 201 N. Main St., Monmouth. The title of her talk is “Adapting to Change in the Galapagos.”

While interning on the Galapagos as she pursued her doctorate, Krisher got the full experience, from giant sea turtles and tropical heat, to curious teens and straddling the hemispheres. Adapting to change was a key part of her five-week stay, and Krisher says it’s also a key lesson for Monmouth students, many of whom she works with in her role within the College’s Wackerle Center for Career, Leadership and Fellowships.

Krisher’s presentation is free, but there is a $17 charge per ticket to eat lunch at the event. Individuals attending the meal are asked to make reservations by Sept. 18 at 309-457-2323 or at

Parking will be available in the city lot at North First Street and East Archer Avenue or at the corner of North Main Street and West Boston Avenue.
