New Greeks take alcohol education course

In the month of February, more than 300 new Greek members took an alcohol education course offered by the Student Life Division. The students had two options for the course: a presentation led by Dr. Jessica Siegel of Psychology that focused on the effects of alcohol on the brain and a class taught by Dean Alexander Bruce that stressed normative behavior and the importance of intervention. Students who completed a survey reported the course changed their perception of drinking on campus: statistical data show that there is much less high-risk drinking than students thought (the high-risk drinking is just so noticeable that it colors the perception of consumption). Armed with knowledge and intervention strategies, Greeks are now better able to help promote a safer, healthier campus for all.

Sewanee Union Theatre goes digital!

After being closed for about a month, the Sewanee Union Theatre (the SUT) has re-opened with a new digital projector and enhanced sound. The new projector replaces the 35mm workhorse that, at the end of a long tour of service, just could no longer be repaired. On the grand "re-opening" weekend audiences wowed at the high-def images and enveloping sounds of Skyfall. Films for the remainder of the year will include Les Miserables, The Hobbit, and Django Unchained. All are glad to have the SUT back in action!
