This semester has been an awesome example of how Vanderbilt keeps its students in touch with up-to-date professionals in their field, particularly in the arts! Everyone knows about Vanderbilt's contributions to football and academics, but hardly anyone knows about its awesome theatre department! This year they brought in many new features that I have been able to work with, and I wanted to share some of those stories with y'all!
This year, the Communication Studies department moved to the Curb Center. I am not going to lie. When I first heard that my classes were neither going to be on main campus nor on commons, but rather in a totally separate location, I was pretty upset. I had no desire to walk almost a mile each way to and from class. I also feared that I would always be late for lunch plans. But, the new space is definitely worth it. In addition is new classrooms, the Communications office suite actually houses the entire department. There is also a great auditorium where the department can host speakers, which brings me to the point of this post.
This semester I had the pleasure of taking an intermediate nonfiction workshop with Sandy Solomon. Centered on memoir- and profile-writing, we became acquainted with the craft of “writing about other people.” I have had my fair share of journaling enterprises, but they all came to sad untimely demises a few entries after their inception. This...
A lot of my life here at Vanderbilt revolves around group projects, which, day-to-day, looks like 10:45 pm meetings, Google Docs galore, throwing PowerPoints together like nobody's business, team evaluations, and projects that eat up your life. But you really shouldn't fret! I've compiled a guide to getting through group projects without too many scratches. After all, everyone says that business in the real world is just a giant group project. OH YAY.

With the semester coming to a close, it’s been a little hard to get in the holiday spirit with finals looming in the distance, but I had some help courtesy of Professor Amanda Little, who teaches one of the best classes I've taken at Vandy!
This event, for two hours on Friday night, marks the first night of the Blair Salon Series, a program successfully piloted last year. Around 30 people gathered at Dean Wcislo's house––performers, professors, and students from every college––for an evening of chamber music. The music was centered on fairy tales, partly as foreshadowing for the upcoming production of "Into the Woods" by Vanderbilt Opera, and partly as celebration of quirky, wonderful feats of imagination.
Having recently survived my first Biology exam without any apparent physical damage (although amino acid formulas still haunt me in my sleep lol), and I think one of the many reasons this exam was manageable, even though Professor Stubbs exams are usually challenging, is that I made it fun! You see, Stevenson Center WILL be...
