As a student, you spend a lot of time indoors. Many days you never see sunlight, especially prior to mid-terms and finals.

I’m, by far, no Casanova, but I’ve picked up a thing or two here and there. One of the lessons that is constantly being beaten into me is that some courtships are unjust and criminal; not everyone is worth the effort.Read More →

Artists Kathleen Caprario and Marissa Solini are featured artists in the exhibit “Patterns of Change” in the Art Gallery, Feb. 17 to March 10. The art department provided the following information about the exhibit. Caprario’s mixed-media works look to exterior spaces, echoing patterns of seasons, human interaction with nature and movement through space. Caprario refers to these pieces as “wallpaper,” stating that “one’s surrounding landscape, much like wallpaper in one’s home, is an important but often overlooked environmental influence.” These images are also part map, conveying the experience of walking in a dense forest through layers of stenciled leaves and stems.
