Weekly Flashback, May 6-10

 


So many intriguing tidbits peppered our days this week. Read ahead to catch the highlights.

These…Are The Days of Our Lives
Students, let us fill you in on a not-so-secret secret; life is usually better while in school. Yes, that includes finals and the three-meals-a-day of Cup Noodles. This weekend, those that came before us get a chance to relive their glory days—it’s alumni day on Saturday! Alumni, see the schedule here for a weekend of reliving the good ‘ol days.

“Practice, Practice, Practice!”
No one knows the exact origin of the joke, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall,” but Mannes College alumna JoAnn Falletta is certainly familiar with both the literal and figurative answers. With 14 years’ experience as the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra’s music director under her belt, Falletta conducted at the famous concert venue on Wednesday night. She’s not the orchestra’s only New School link, either. Last fall, Mannes formed a partnership with the music company to provide students opportunities as Student Conductors-in-Residence. Read about it here.

We’re Just Jazzercizing
Lang students really like to get out there. They’re involved in projects like the CSA Corbin Hill Road Farm, sustainable biking initiatives, and Health 2.0. While this last practicum usually takes students out into the city’s schools to teach about healthy living, it has a new dimension—live mannequins! Eugene Lang College professor Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, who leads Health 2.0, snapped a photo of one of her students inside the window display of Lululemon this week. Check it out.

#TimesLikeThese
Feel a little crazed with final projects piling up and the end of the semester just a week away? Apparently, you aren’t the only one. Check out what someone left in the Lang Courtyard. I knew I lost my wig somewhere! Lost and Found anyone? http://instagram.com/p/ZGWXAPG-qP/
