“When students first meet their orientation leaders, they're usually very quiet. But it's the role of their orientation leader to get them comfortable with each other, make friends, participate in the different activities. If students have any questions they should feel like they can ask that question without being judged or that they shouldn't ask - there is no such thing as a dumb question when it comes to orientation.”

The Curry College Fine and Applied Arts department is proud to bring 'Absence and Presence: A Printmaking Response to the Bombing of Al-Mutanabbi Street' to the Curry campus. The second of two fall exhibits (prints 26-50) will run November 2 - December 20 and will be displayed in the Hoon Keith Quiet Study Lounge Gallery in the Student Center.
As a part of their senior seminar class, fine arts students were tasked with creating a set of bookmarks inspired by "Absence and Presence" art exhibit. The exhibit was created in response to the 2007 terrorist car bombing in the literary district of al-Mutanabbi Street of Baghdad, Iraq. Students then dispersed their works out into the community.
