#hashtagforeverything – RGADC

There was a time when the hashtag was still merely a pound sign.  Now though, hashtags permeate the minds of the millennial generation. Not only do they appear on phone screens, but they also worm their way into conversation. I’d say I think of them because I’m a social media intern, but that’s not really... Continue Reading →

History and Interests for All – RGADC

Why should I go to Washington? Freshman Renee thought. There’s nothing for me there. At the time, I was a theatre education major who really just wanted to bring stories to life.

The Queer Qualities of “Quelf”

“Service and Confession” Haiku Series

Covered in discussion by both Lauren and Lisa, these two disciplines resulted in a lot of conversation. I think most of the group is amused that, instead of taking notes, I write haikus. Same, same, but different, right? Basically. No point standing back When there is need for service, We must step forward More than... Continue Reading →
