On the End (Part Dave)

I entered this year under the assumption that my art thesis would be the focus of my senior year, the central object of my labor, the pot always simmering on the back burner of my mind. It wasn’t, though, and as I sit here in The College Voice office on a Sunday night, surrounded by […]

On the End (Part Mel)

“What are you doing after graduation?” It’s a question that makes me cringe every time I hear it. Recently, I’ve started reacting with a visible twitch, which leads whoever is asking to add, “Oh, should I not ask?” “No,” I say. “You can. But I don’t have an answer.” As April comes to a close, […]

On Grammar

Dear Campus Community, People love referring to things as “an art.” For example, “editing is an art,” some editors would quip. I disagree. To me, art is fluid and irrational, adhering to rules set only by the artist (Dave can attest to that). The choice to set rules exists, and they can be dictated by […]

Let me Take a #Selfie

In a great Seinfeld episode, the gang uses the phrase ‘yada, yada, yada’ to abridge stories and downplay suspicious behavior. The colloquial is still commonly used in a similar fashion, and it is pertinent to the story in this article. This is not to say that what happened on a rainy Tuesday is of the […]

George Rickey (1907-2002) is an American kinetic sculptor. After completing a degree in History from Balliol College in Oxford, England, Rickey traveled through Europe and became fascinated by the art he encountered. Against the will of his father, who was an executive at the Singer Sewing Machine Company, Rickey went to Paris to enroll in […]

Breakfast on Bank Street (and Elsewhere, too)

Breakfast is the best meal of the day, no matter what time it is. Luckily for Conn students, there are a number of restaurants that serve so-called “breakfast foods,” (a.k.a. the only foods) around the clock. Muddy Waters Café, Bean & Leaf, and Washington Street Coffee House are among the closest restaurants to campus with […]

The Places You’ll Go, Here in New Lo

The Places You’ll Go, Here in New Lo

We’re sure by now almost everyone has read (or at least heard about) the article “Shame on Connecticut College” written by David Collins in The Day, or the read the response published in The Voice (and later, The Day) by Sam Norcross last week. And we’re sure some people may feel a sense of animosity […]

Under the Canopy of Good Tunes

Under the Canopy of Good Tunes

The greatest irony of this weekend’s Canopy Dance was its lack of a performance by Canopy, perhaps the hippest and raddest of the current MOBROC bands. A self-proclaimed “world famous band,” Canopy has played shows all over campus, including Cro, Earth House, Coffee Grounds, the Barn and at several open mic nights. The band, formerly […]
