The Student Experience

It’s good to be green when you’re the Slimer from Ghostbusters and the event is the annual Nonalcoholic Drink Mix-off. It’s good to find warmth in a barrel when you’ve spent the night in a cardboard shelter in order to raise awareness of homelessness. It’s good to be jubilant, celebrating athletic victories or singing with the Voices of Joy.

Students find many means of self-expression: music, drama, Kipp Gallery art exhibitions in Sprowls Hall, and even cold, raw aggression in the snow.

The student experience encompasses all kinds of sound, or lack thereof: outside Keith Hall, a meditative moment among memorials to Americans killed in Iraq; a nearly-empty residence hall lounge, given over to solitary pursuits; a few minutes of music practice on an upper floor of Waller Hall; and rapt attention to computers in a high-tech classroom.
