The Woman in the Teal Scarf by Nina Mansfield - Acting Scene
The scene is set in a  quiet college town during Christmas time. Hannah, a filmmaker, just lost her  housing. With no one else to turn to, Hannah asks a professor she met at a  poetry reading for help. Lydia, the professor’s wife and an actress turned  stay-at-home mom, is hesitant to welcome this stranger with a teal scarf into  her home.

Writing in the Half-Known World
In Professor  Scapellato's 'Writing in the Half-Known World,' we have written pieces that  encourage us to explore our imagination and creativity. By writing without  traditional writing conventions, such as a determined plot and character  story, we have been able to write pieces that have been inventive and  visionary. Today, you will get a taste of what it's like to write in a  half-known world through a couple student's passages.

Kiss and Cry Performance
This scene study combines everything we've been learning about this semester: script analysis, character development, body and vocal awareness, writing about our research, and the ability to work in groups. Our scene is from Kiss and Cry by Tom Rowan, and we chose it because it addresses issues that are very relevant to the work that we as actors do. We hope that we can create two lifelike and believable characters that anyone in the entertainment industry can understand and empathize with.

Activism, Lyricism, and Rhythm
This presentation  represents what we learned this semester in our foundation seminar for the  Arts Residential College. We have focused on topical issues in relationship  to music and the arts. Through the use of songs and their impactful lyrics,  artists are able to address issues promoting change and awareness.
 
  Music has always served as a way for artists to invoke change especially in  regards to social issues. This mixtape focuses on songs that address issues  of gender inequality, sexual orientation, and gender identification. There is  a wide range of artists that are discussed including Beyonce and Frank Ocean.
