Senior art

2015 Studio Art Major's ExhibitionEach year, senior art majors exhibit their work in the Beard and Weil Galleries. This year the creations of 16 students were featured in “Working Title.” The name of the show, which students came up with, is “their way of conveying a sense of work in progress, that their education will always continue and their work will change,” noted advisor Kelly Goff, assistant professor of art and art history.

Renovations to Chase Dining Hall continued this spring, providing the Wheaton community with the opportunity to temporarily try something new from the fast-food truck parked each day on campus. Students also got a chance to sign ceiling beams that will go up in the renovated space.

Responding to Ferguson

Students staged a December “die-in” to decry racism, as a response to incidents in Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere. The event was organized by the Roosevelt Institute and the theme house Together We All Prosper (TWAP). The college also hosted a panel discussion on racism, with Dolita Cathcart, history professor, and Michael Sawyer, visiting political science instructor.
