Brandon writes – Improvisational Acting speaks to the mind AND the Body

Improvisational Acting (DRAM E-21), brought to you by ninja master Thomas Derrah, is one-of-those-courses from which everyone in the whole world can benefit. No doubt someone will say, “Will improvisational acting really help me get a job?” and my improvised gut-reaction is “YES, improvisational acting will help you get a job AND, more importantly, improvisational acting will help […]

Rachel writes: summer greetings!

August: A follow-up ALM thesis-topic meeting with Dean Sue Schopf the other day yielded a more-or less solid plan–I’ll flesh out my proposal for submission by about Sept 1.

Hint: the poem was not the whole story.

Brandon writes: Choosing courses with the course evaluation data website

What classes will you take? Still not 100% sure?

To access the course evaluation […]

Sol writes: Welcome back, welcome in

All right, so we’ve had a summer. No one did as much as they wanted, no one got enough sleep, all of us are overworked and underpatient, and here we are again! Let’s talk getting ready for school. You registered for classes, – what, you didn’t yet?

Harvard Extension Environmental Club (HEEC) president, “The” Mike Mahoney, hosted a wicked-fun canoe trip and BBQ last weekend in Hanover Massachusetts.  After eight miles of canoeing through pristine wetlands, Mahoney grilled up a feast in the garden of Eden, A.K.A. Mahoney’s back yard, which is home to countless plants and over three hundred varieties of […]
