Do you sense your thesis deadlines fast approaching? Are you planning to write a lot over break? You're not alone!
Join the Writing Center's Thesis Write-On-Site during Spring Break. Find productivity and mutual support when you write in a space with other thesis writers; the Writing Center will provide light refreshments, healthy break suggestions, and on-the-spot writing consultations.
The Site will be open 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday-Thursday (March 12-15) in the Charles Pratt Common Room adjacent to the Writing Center. Participants may set their own schedule for their use of the space; for an extra layer of accountability, sign up with a friend to commit to a writing schedule together. RSVP if you plan to attend.
During January interterm nine students from Amherst, UMass, Smith, and Mount Holyoke participated in “Adventures in Photography,” an interterm course taught by Joshua Baum and Takudzwa Tapfuma. Over the five-day course, students learned fundamental techniques of digital photography: manual exposure, composition, lighting, and post-production. The class ventured into the field for hands-on excursions to the New England Peace Pagoda, Montague Bookmill and downtown Northampton. The images in this exhibit are a selection of work created during the class.
Thank you to the Department of Art and the History of Art, and the Center for Community Engagement for sponsoring the course, and to Valentine Dining Hall for hosting this exhibition.
