Senior Spotlight: Claire Violand

Each semester I like to sit down with the seniors and do a Q&A session. The last but not least but the least in tiny size’s senior spotlight is Claire Violand, Graphic Arts, interviewed by Professor Carolyn Ford, Department Chair.  Claire has shown devotion to her Graphics and Communications classes. She is driven in her tennis playing as well as her future taking on an internship at Jetline. Although she is as tiny as a mouse with a sweet voice, she is organized, efficient, and underestimates her abilities impressing others with her big art-voice.

Senior Spotlight: Genna Greevelink

Each semester I like to sit down with the seniors and do a Q&A session. The third senior spotlight is Genna Greevelink, Graphic Arts, interviewed by Professor Carolyn Ford, Department Chair.

We decided to do the ghost walk over the T-Bridge but had the biggest fright and laugh of our lives when a squirrel almost attacked Professor Tuttle under a tree.

Her show Centered is currently hanging in the Granberry Gallery. I’d like to first say that Sydney will be missed immensely, not that I will ever see us separating.

Learned Ladies

Learned Ladies

During the Salon movement of the 17th century, women, thirsty for knowledge and freedom, began to read, discuss and absorb all the learning they could now get their hands on. Frequently, into that mix came sycophants and opportunists, to take advantage of the budding but not fully formed intelligence of the Women's Movement. Enter Trissotin, a mediocre poet with a lot of sex appeal and little literary talent, who all but seduces Philamente, determined to be at the forefront of the movement.
