Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts

A beautiful surprise

Art in unusual places.

Art in unusual places.

One of the perks of being on a campus of creative and talented students and imaginative professors is that you never know where you will find art. Sometimes it is in our Beard and Weil Galleries; sometimes it is hanging from the ceiling of the Mars Center for Science and Technology or crawling up the wall of an entryway. Yep. Keep your eyes open around here—and look up. (Photos by Keith Nordstrom)

A tune up

The Blend and dance troupe S.O.LE. In December 2016, President Dennis M. Hanno teamed up with Wheaton’s coed a cappella group The Blend and dance troupe S.O.L.E. to create a special video holiday card for the college community. Part of the magic involved Assistant Vice President for Communications Michael Graca rewriting a classic song to put the Wheaton spin on it. Here’s a challenge for you. Take a song—something familiar—and rewrite the lyrics to Wheaton-ize it. Email us your revamped version and we’ll try to get it performed for you in a video and give you bragging rights. (Warning: The performance may be by the editor of the magazine, if she can’t convince an a cappella group to do it.) Our revamped song below. Go to the WheatonCollegeMA YouTube channel to see it performed.
