Ensemble: Dancing in Community is an intermediate/advanced composition course where students will collaborate to produce a full weekend showcase of their personal choreographic works. In addition to their own work, students will learn repertory from Visiting Assistant Professor Danté Brown, be immersed in a multitude of master classes from professional artists and learn the administrative/business component of being an independent artist. Students who audition must have a strong background in composition and a technique of their choosing.
Auditions will take place on September 5 and 10. Students are encouraged to attend BOTH audition dates.
Stressed about how to balance classwork, extracurriculars, friendships, and sleep this semester? Don’t worry! Stop by the Mead for a two-part workshop series that will offer strategies for gaining control over how you use your time.
Part I. Where does the time go? | Wednesday, Sept. 5, 6:30–8 p.m.

Part II. Planning Through Procrastination | Wednesday, Sept. 26, 6:30–8 p.m.
All students are invited to a hands-on planning workshop. Now that the semester is underway, join us to plan your individual weekly schedule and semester as a whole.

These workshops will be facilitated by Senior Associate Dean of Students Charri Boykin-East, Senior Writing Associate Kristen Brookes, and the Mead’s education team. This program is designed for Five College students and offered in collaboration with the Being Human in STEM Initiative, Student Affairs, and the Writing Center.
The finance industry can seem very complex, especially when distinguishing between investment banks. This is your opportunity to hear from a panel of industry experts who will be discussing the advantages of choosing a non-bulge bracket investment bank/investment advisory firm. These alumni, who represent middle market and boutique investment banks, will be talking about the pros and cons of working at smaller firms and how your career can be directly impacted. These same firms will be on campus this fall for internship and/or full-time recruiting. Following the panel, the employers will be available for networking and individual questions. Come hear about each firm and determine if pursuing investment banking at a middle market or boutique firm is right for you.
Written and directed by David Green '19E, God’s Issue re-imagines the biblical stories of Adam and Eve, Jesus and others to explore the relationship between God and humankind. Funny, irreverent and deeply serious, God’s Issue is intended for a diverse cast, so religious and non-religious folk of all races and gender identities are encouraged to audition. First-year and Five-College students are especially welcome! The show includes songs, but singing ability is not needed for most roles. The 10-12 actors in God’s Issue will play multiple parts, so auditions will involve reading a variety of roles. There is no need to prepare! Come read some scenes!
Students may attend auditions on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
Professor David Gloman has partnered with Kurt Heidinger, director of the Biocitizen School, to create an art event that inspires the public to imagine the unique biocultural character of the Nonotuck biome (also known as the central Connecticut River Valley) by “re-presenting” the landscapes that Orra Hitchcock depicted in the mid 19th century. Professor Gloman has located the sites where they were painted and created his own painted landscape portraits of those sites. View Gloman and Hitchcock's illustrations together in Frost Library's Mezzanine Gallery from September 4 - October 29.
The opening reception will be on September 27 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd Floor, Frost Library).
