Davidson students are mostly off of campus this week for Spring Break. While our regular bloggers are out taking some much needed rest and relaxation, we at the Davidson College Office of Admission and Financial Aid thought the readers of Explore.Davidson might want to see all of the interesting things students do after they graduate. So, this week we decided to introduce “The Graduate Series,” a series of posts from guest bloggers who happen to be recent alumni of Davidson College. Continue reading
“I have an 8-10 page lab report due at 5Pm today…and I’ve got 8-10 pages left.” My friend said this two days ago and it reminded me how the week before Spring Break is crazy, especially when you are getting back from missing 5 days (3 days of class) for Conference! Continue reading
Let me apologize to my readers. I’ve been beyond lax in updating and blogging about my experiences at Davidson thus far. However, the result is that I have just a ridiculous amount to tell you about.
Now, I’ve written about the work load of Davidson before. Now, I’ve cried wolf a fair bit, but what is critical here is time management, and I’ve been treading water in that particular stream for a while now. Recently it all came to a head with a combination of pledging a fraternity, the SGA Fiasco regarding its Composition, SGA Elections, Homework, and Sports Clubs. Basically, this all had a product of driving the blog from my mind despite the convenient reminders that get emailed to my computer. So, again, I shall apologize. But let us start off on a brighter note: Continue reading
If I had to pick one word to describe my life recently, it would be this: Cunningham. Tucked behind trees, across Chambers Lawn from most students’ lives, the Cunningham building houses Davidson’s theater department, and lately, it’s been the center of my life. All my friends know by now that sometime around 6pm, I drop what I’m doing and crawl into hiding across campus in Cunningham, not to emerge until I’m heading to bed.
What does life look like from the other side? The lights are dark and suddenly a light comes up. Music begins to play and you wonder in what sort of place you are supposed to be. Suddenly you hear those divine words… “Two houses, both alike in dignity”
Life on the other side of the theater curtain that is. Continue reading
The highlight of my week by far was meeting Dr. Lonnie Bunch III, the director of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). I do not know what I will be doing or where I will be in four years, but I know that in 2015 (the opening year) I WILL be visiting the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Dr. Bunch visited Davidson this week as a part of our Memory lecture series. The series has consists off many interdisciplinary lectures, from discussing the legacy of Malcolm X to analyzing the influence of T.S. Eliott. Dr. Bunch’s presentation Continue reading
This past weekend we held our annual Junior Day event. The title of the program doesn’t exactly win the award for “Most Creative,” Continue reading
Valentine’s Day is done. People aren’t thinking about which guy they want to send them roses or chocolates or which person is going to serenade them or show up at their door with a bottle of wine and recite a romantic poem for them. The fun dreaming has now come to an end….we have to wake up and come back to reality, because it’s time for MIDTERMS.
In her blog post the other day (February 13) Anika wrote about the current debate over SGA composition (A Post Racial/Post Democratic Society?). The debate between change or no-change has become heated at times, with neither side appearing to give way to the other. Should there be alloted votes for organizations or should every voting member of SGA be elected by the entire student body? That is the question at stake.
Davidson students constantly complain about how they can’t find love at Davidson. I’ve heard people whine endlessly about the lack of dating selection on campus. I’ve read editorials outlining precisely why our generation (whatever generation we are) just doesn’t date in the tradition context anymore. It seems that every single person on campus is overwhelmed by the possibility that dating is simply out-dated. I’d like to re-approach this topic, however, with an alternate type of love in mind.
Let’s be real, love is everywhere, especially at Continue reading
