Coming to a close

In Modern Art class, we just covered the political implications of Conceptual art, arguably an endpoint for the trajectory of the Western Classical art movement. (Art historians, please feel free to correct me—we have one class left in the semester, so I might not have the whole picture yet!) Speaking of endpoints, though, I’ve been[…]

The Roots of Success

By Dale Leyburn, Senior Assistant Director, Career and Internship Center One of the great things about my job as a counselor in the Career and Internship Center is that I get to help students and alumni identify and achieve their career goals. As the person in charge of all things survey-related, I can tell you[…]

And the Curtains Close…

So, that is it! Greece Olympia’s Once Upon A Mattress is over. It was a hard three months of rehearsals and work, but it definitely paid off. We were told by teachers, alumni, and the community that this production was the best that Olympia’s stage has ever seen. I personally just can’t believe it is[…]

High School Musical

So, it’s that time: HELL WEEK. Also known as tech week or sleep week. But more appropriately…HELL. WEEK. Our showings of the school musical Once Upon a Mattress are this weekend: Thursday, Friday, and two on Saturday. So guess what this week consists of?

Time flies

By Stephania Romaniuk February always seems to end with the words “Where did it go?” My fifth year in this city has been no different that way, especially since I added a few more activities to my plate this semester. In addition to my classes: Introduction to Digital Media: reading articles, watching films, trying out[…]

Ramblings

I have two things to say today; one is extracurricular and the other is weather-related. 1) I joined Campus Times and my life simultaneously improved and got worse, in a sense. It’s true that it’s a huge time commitment, so being the Arts & Entertainment editor definitely hasn’t left me feeling like I have all[…]

The sun will come out tomorrow…

Just kidding, that already happened this week.  Winter is in full swing in Rochester and that means snow, snow, and more snow.  Yesterday’s weather was particularly interesting.  I woke up to 36 degrees and slightly rainy, so as any typical student at Rochester would think, “Oh hey, it’s warm out,” I donned a sweatshirt and[…]
