Join JET Program Coordinator, Mx. Adrain Hutton, to learn more about the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program. This is an extraordinary opportunity for college graduates to live and work in Japan. Each year, with the aid of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the JET Program recruits more than one thousand new JET participants to come to Japan and work as either Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) who provide language instruction in elementary, junior and senior high schools, or Coordinators for International Relations (CIRs) who work in communities on international exchange activities.
The Writing Center's Creative Writing Group will gather weekly on Monday nights to write, share and discuss our fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, drama and other modes of creative writing in a friendly, supportive manner.

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).
