How to Start and End Your Story

Posted by Joanna Beall, MA, Open Spaces Program

Mar 20, 2015 9:25:00 AM

There is something amazing that happens when a class becomes a group, when students cease to identify only as individuals and suddenly see themselves as colleagues, connected by ideas, experience, and understanding. In the fall of 2014, this happened almost immediately in our section of How to Tell Your Story; no one was more surprised than I. The discomfort that frequently dominates the first awkward class meetings quickly dissipated, and I felt excited and hopeful. How and why did this diverse group of poets, woodworkers, psychology majors, filmmakers, musicians, and artists willingly and enthusiastically come together?

As a college student, you are already very familiar with having an online presence.

Other popular social media networks that continue to gain ground with college students are Pinterest, Tumblr, Snapchat and Vine.

About Nick
Nick Cartularo '15 is a student in the Individualized Masters program. He's currently working on his degree project — a feature film called Turn It Up.

Think Green...Not Green Beer!

Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up! As I understand it, there is a tradition here in Burlington where all the bars sell green beer in celebration. While that’s all fine and good, I’m not one that is very interested in drinking bright green colored liquids. Ha Ha! So! In honor of the green day, lets really think green!

There are so many things you can do to lessen your impact on the environment. Burlington is a great city, very progressive and environmentally conscious!

Mar 9, 2015 3:08:00 PM

Since the late 1970s, before Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was a diagnosis, I have worked to understand, transform and heal military and combat trauma in troops, veterans and survivors of all wars up through the present. My new book Warrior's Return is the result of my life-long labor to provide wisdom, hope and a genuine path for healing and homecoming to those who have survived hell in our country’s name.
