The Poet’s Guide to Journalism

On Oct. 14, Tom Sleigh, a noted poet, read excerpts from his most recent collection of poems — “Station Zed” — to a crowded O’Shaughnessy Performance Space at Santa Fe University of Art and Design. The collection is part of a new body of work by Sleigh inspired by his recent travels to the Middle East. In addition to the poems, Sleigh journalized the experience in an essay titled “The Deeds” in which Sleigh casts himself as a poet in journalist’s clothing, seeking passage to the Lebanese city of Qana in order to learn the Palestinian side of the 2006 Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “I loved doing it,” Sleigh says, “I didn’t think about...

SFUAD Courts Prospective Students Oct24

SFUAD Courts Prospective Students

Enrollment pulled out all the stops Oct. 17 in the lobby of the Greer Garson Theatre to persuade young people from all over the region to pursue a SFUAD bachelor’s degree. Izzi Getlo, from Flagstaff, Ariz., has been looking for the right college since her freshman year of high school. “I want a school where there are like-minded people,” Getlo said, “and I don’t have to sit in a classroom all day.” Torn between film and musical theater, Getlo said she hoped to know the course of study she wants to pursue after the tour. Greeted by enrollment reps, prospective students received personalized packets of university information, and were then...

Let’s Hear it For Some Girls

  Neil Labute’s Some Girl(s), opened Oct. 17,  presents a marked script improvement over PAD’s previous show The Cave Dwellers, and boasts strong performances from its four female leads. Senior Jade Scott Lewis does an affable job as Guy, a struggling writer on an apology tour to four former ex-girlfriends, before his upcoming nuptials. Lewis is perfectly cast as the bumbling heartbreaker, equally selling the charm to win women over, as well as the selfish streak to ruin them. Again, Lewis does a great job as the scoundrel Guy, but the real stars of the show are his former lovers, all vulnerable in their own ways, and with...

Campus Safety Incident Oct16

Campus Safety Incident

On Oct. 2, an unidentified male gained access to one of SFUAD’s on-campus dormitories, exposed himself to a showering female student, and then pursued her to her room, where she was forced to almost slam his hand in the door to prevent him from entering. A male student was arrested a few days after the incident and charged with indecent exposure. Charges against this student were later dropped and he was allowed back on campus as of Oct. 14.
