Pure Grass for Scribendi

April 3, 2017By webeditor1Cool News, Neat Info

Last Sunday, all in a couple of hours, the Scribendi staff experienced love, nature, comradery, death, and democracy. We came as close to meeting Walt Whitman as I think we ever will. And we weren’t reading Leaves of Grass: we were living it. It was March 26 and exactly 125 years after the day of … Read More

Marigold Parade 2016

November 8, 2016By webeditor1Neat Info

The 2016 Marigold Parade was everything a first or long-time viewer could want. It was filled with everything from candy to live music, and had way too many dogs dressed in cute little skeleton outfits (if there can be such a thing as that). It even included a vibrant parade through part of the West … Read More

Scribendi Team-Building Workshop 2016

September 6, 2016By webeditor1Neat Info

“Mandatory” isn’t often met with grins and nods. More often than not, it’s received with groans and mumbled (or sometimes brazenly loud) complaints. August 25th wasn’t much different. After all, who wants to spend three hours on a Saturday evening with seventeen strangers? But, as our professor Amaris Ketcham had instructed, one by one we … Read More

It’s magazine makin’ season! Over break, each staff member designed a potential cover for the magazine.

We have a great selection of writing, art, and open media to choose from and we are very excited to start putting the magazine together! Our Homecoming was a success, despite our staff getting partially smothered by glitter from our star and … Read More

Meet the 2016 Staff!

October 12, 2015By webeditor1Neat Info

Amaris Ketcham, Faculty Advisor In 5 words or less, describe what you’d do if confronted with a bear wearing a pirate hat wielding a roll of duct tape. Lament holding a honey jar. What is your favorite work of art? The Dante’s Inferno Exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art. What is your most irrational … Read More

Scribendi So Far

October 3, 2015By webeditor1Neat Info

Scribendi has been hard at work training our new staff! We started off with a three hour long team building session at the beginning of the semester, where we honed our communication skills and gained insight into each new staff member’s strengths. Between scheduled classes, overlapping office hours, and team projects the staff has already … Read More
