Zander recalls writing to Myers when he was rumored to be considering closing the School of Nursing. Her primary contact with him was when she was selected as a recipient of an honorary doctorate in 2001 and she recalls being a guest in his home and seeing some of his collections. Her interview also includes a number of stories about her time as a student with topics including being a member of Sigma Kappa, Sigma Theta Tau, attending rallies against the Vietnam War and "women's hours," and the 300 level Humanities class she was part of. She closes with a story about an emergency situation she was in while working as a psychology nurse when the teachings of a faculty member got her through it. Zander credits her summer music camp experience as being influential in choosing IWU and shares experiences she's had on more recent visits to campus, including being a speaker for the 2016 Council for IWU Women.
