Bolt Party Invite

The Met Gala: Bolt Magazine Interest and Launch Zoom Reception

It's the first Monday in May - the Met Gala - but because Vogue can't host it, we will! Please join us for a celebration of the launch of the first issue of Bolt Magazine, Amherst College's first fashion and arts magazine. Dress up, pick out a fun background, and self-supply a cookie. All students are welcome to attend, and we will be spending some time discussing the club for prospective students. Bolt was founded during the 2019-2020 school year to give an outlet to students interested in working on any aspect of a fashion magazine, please reach out to Dorothy Scarborough (dscarborough22@amherst.edu) or Sophie Caldwell (Scaldwell23@amherst.edu) to RSVP or to register interest in joining the magazine.

Virtual Pop-Up Series: Career Q+A with the Class of 2008--Virginia Lora, Independent Radio & Podcast Producer

We know it’s a difficult time to be a student—the pandemic is disrupting all aspects of life, and the challenging economy is impacting job and internship experiences. We thought 2008 grads who graduated from Amherst during the Great Recession could relate. In this pop-up series your questions will take center stage.

Join us as we:
--learn about the challenges 2008 grads faced in early career experiences --explore how they’re navigating work during the pandemic
--and get industry-specific considerations for what’s ahead

Our next 2008 alum guest is Virginia Lora, a bilingual independent radio and podcast producer. She recently completed a reporting fellowship with NPR’s Latino USA and is currently an associate producer for Feeling My Flo, a reported podcast for tweens about all things menstruation. Check out her LinkedIn profile or some of her stories , and then let us know if you have questions you'd like to ask her during the talk! You can submit your questions for Virginia here: https://forms.gle/ZryZc6xMR6ng7TYG7
