Spring Break Sights

Another spring break has come and gone.

Some stayed closed to home. Some headed south to escape the snow and cold, while others headed north to enjoy even more. Some even headed west to seek adventure.

Students in Professor Nina Hoffman’s photojournalism course captured their spring break activities.

Voice Science Week at Curry College

PHOTOS BY LAURA TRAINOR AND MICHAEL DAVIS // FEBRUARY 12, 2019 //

This past week, Curry students had a unique learning opportunity.

With the guidance of guest clinicians Laurel Irene and Dr. David Harris of VoiceScienceWorks, students experienced a full week of master classes, workshops, class visits, and performances for students, faculty, and staff focused on the science, health, and art of the human voice.

Discussion topics ranged from vocal preservation and vocal technique to changing pitches, tones, and frequencies based on your emotion in a performance.

Photojournalism Class Shares Final Portfolios

COMPILED AND CAPTIONED BY RYAN HATHAWAY // MAY 6, 2016 //

Traditionally I write a formal and objective introduction to these slideshows, but I’m going to allow for candidness here. In my time at Curry and experience with the journalism program, I’ve learned that one of the most important skills a young professional can bring with them into the working world is a technological aptitude.

Fortunately, that technological aptitude often translates into simply knowing how to use the devices that have become implanted to our palms and fingertips, anyway. In journalism, one of the most essential tools a reporter can bring into the field today is their iPhone.

Shooting photos has become an integral part of journalism, and in recognition of this Curry offered students an unlisted Photojournalism class this spring. I was not able to take the class myself, but in working with Professor Nina Hofman and seeing the work her students completed, I cannot recommend the course highly enough.

Whether you are trying to earn a career in journalism (like I am), another career in communication, or looking to finally learn the full potential of a digital camera, this course will put you in the driver seat. Students were sent into the city and other locations on assignment, and advised to take pictures over their spring break, a clear indicator of how this course will provide you with the real-world, experiential learning opportunities that are so critical.

So if you get the chance to, be sure to check out the Photojournalism course for yourself. Professor Hofman is a bright educator and will give you the chance to learn more about photography, the world around you, and yourself. This will be the last photo gallery of this school year, and thus my last gallery to publish, but I would be remiss had I not taken the opportunity to advocate this opportunity to anyone who may be reading this.

PHOTO GALLERY: 2016 Spring Weekend

EDITED AND COMPILED BY RYAN HATHAWAY // APRIL 26, 2016 //

Spring weekend. We all needed it.

Whether you enjoyed a nice beverage, sat outside in the sunshine, or just binged Netflix alone in your room with the shades drawn, this was the weekend to enjoy.

Because now we’re all buckling in for finals. Staying up well past the end of Game of Thrones to crank out those last few pages, waking up to a strong cup of coffee and cramming, and tension headaches will define this semester’s last few weeks (bottle of aspirin in the backpack is a PRO move).

But before we dive into all of that fun, let’s take one last breather (breathing is key guys, kind of an important thing), and enjoy what was an amazing way to kick off spring. Here’s hoping summer comes quick, I know I’m still dreaming of a day at the beach.
