Coming and Going!

China Trip_1By Suzanne Gorman, Head of Downtown Campus

Welcome back from Spring Break! Two and a half weeks till AP exams; five weeks till regular exams; six weeks till graduation. Hang on!

Our China trip-goers are back safely and had a wonderful adventure. Next week, we send a group off to the Sarah Lawrence Poetry Festival in New York. As well, students have several interesting local opportunities in the coming weeks. Next week, a group will attend the Festival of Faiths panel “We Are Already One – Religion and Compassion in World Affairs” with Karen Armstrong (author of a book the freshmen read this year in Culture and Civilization), Ambassador Matthew Barzun, and Noah Feldman, moderated by William Vendley. And the Music Performance class will attend a rehearsal of the Louisville Orchestra. Next week also brings We Day, the annual celebration of service that our We Act community service group attends. The following week, a student group will attend the Actors Theatre New Voices Showcase of Plays, and we’ll have our 16th annual Women’s Retreat, planned by the women of the faculty and staff for interested students. One note about all these local trips: except for the Women’s Retreat (which isn’t too far, and thanks to Gilda’s Club for hosting us), we can walk to every single one. The benefits of a downtown location!  

Next week also brings our annual Advisee Games, weather permitting! (Rain date is Thursday, April 27th.) Students will dismiss that day from Seneca Park at 3:30 p.m., although some faculty and staff will return to school and can transport students who need rides back downtown. Pictures and report from the Games to come next week!
