Late Night Returns to Campus with Mixed Results

Late Night Against Procrastination took place in Stewart Memorial Library on Thursday, February 21 and roughly 130 students attended the event. “I think long night is a great opportunity to study with your friends as long as you don’t get distracted,” said Logan Rockwell (‘22). “It does seem like a long night, but not necessarily against procrastination.” The relatively small turnout allowed students to work better and kept the noise at a reasonable level for people to actually complete their assignments.

New Event on Campus, Students play Bingo for Food

Artists Bring Art Exhibitions to Coe

On Friday, two artists brought their unique pieces to showcase at a new art exhibition in the Marvin Cone and Eaton-Buchan Galleries, which opened Friday, February 1. These two exhibitions are “Shadow Play: Cut Paper Art & Animation,” by a nationally recognized cut paper artist Angie Pickman, and “Magic and Memory,” by an active artist Brian Frink.
