Posted on Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Showing our support is especially important now, as students who identify as LGBTQ face... Read More

Isabel West ‘20 and August Reid ‘20 did just that when they recognized a problem on campus, sought a solution, and approached the administration with a proposal. The problem was food waste. Tons of it. Day after day, Isabel and August watched as students dutifully cleared their plates of food scraps into trash cans. They were driven to eliminate the waste and... Read More

In early April, as students noticed the greening grass and new buds on the trees, Chaplain Bill Ferguson looked ahead to the Passover and Easter holidays and wanted to ask students to reflect on the existential notion of having faith in a higher power. He invited Rabbi Alison Adler, of nearby Temple B'nai Abraham, to address the packed house of students and faculty members in Landmark's Black Box Theater, about maintaining one's faith despite experiencing loss, illness, or another tragedy....
