Achievement of sustained participation in any social movement depends in large part on the degree to which the movement’s mission directly relates to the everyday lives of its participants. Emma Race ’18 has taken this truism to heart when implementing her Spanish-language storytelling workshops in New London this semester.

Films are awesome. Nobody can deny that. Whether you’re looking for action, horror, comedy, western, or drama, there is a movie for everybody. Films get announced, get vigorously marketed, and then get put out on the big screen for everybody to enjoy. However, only a select few of these thousands of movies actually become critically acclaimed, are embraced by the masses, and manage to turn a profit.

Changing Tune at the Barn

October 6, 2017 Elizabeth Barth 0

After attending a delightful onStage performance by the orchestra A Far Cry featuring Simone Dinnerstein on piano at Palmer Auditorium, I headed over to the Barn for my second campus concert of the evening. Having arrived late, my friends and I stood on the growing line in the cold, desperately waiting for the students guarding the entrance to announce there was room for “three” rather just the lonely “one.”

Don’t See It

Stephen King adaptations are a hit-or-miss affair. While King is an experienced writer and can generally make even the silliest and most bizarre premises seem plausible and frightening, when put to screen by different minds, it is easy for many of his works to come off as ludicrous. This was certainly the case with the original 1990’s It miniseries, which featured several cringe-inducing moments and lines, especially from Tim Curry as Pennywise the clown. Fans of the original text had hoped for a scarier, grittier adaptation of a book about an evil demon clown turtle, so when the remake was announced 27 years later, many were filled with hope.

WCNI 90.0: The Radio Station Nobody Knows About

November 10, 2016 Will Kadison 1

In preparation for writing this article, I asked students around campus if they’d ever tuned into WCNI. The majority of responses were something along the lines of, “Wait, we have a college radio station?” Honestly, I was a little saddened by these answers. A campus radio station is pretty awesome; it’s something that makes Conn special.

Inside “A Way of Looking at Things”

“We are a small liberal arts college that places an emphasis on student clubs. This makes it nearly impossible for someone to say that there is nothing to do on a Saturday night!” I heard something like this on almost every college tour I attended, including my tour at Conn.

Liz de Lise and Olive Tiger Kick Off SAC’s Friday Night Live Series

Students and community members slowly trickled into Coffee Grounds last Thursday night to hear the music of Olive Tiger and Liz de Lise. The shop was filled not only with a warmth that pushed its way in from the humid September evening, but a more figurative warmth that emanated from the many people perched on tables and couches around the room. The lights were dim, the coffee plentiful, and the whole room was washed in a subtle softness.

First-Year 5: The End-All-Be-All List of 5 Embarassing First-Year Moments

Oh, the excitement. Oh, the nerves. Oh, everything else in between. That is how I felt before coming to Conn. I wondered how living on my own for the first time in my entire life would feel, and I guess a lot of first-years were feeling the same way. As soon as I entered the campus I thought to myself, “Wow… this is actually really beautiful, I cannot wait to live here for the next four years.”
