Trigg in Las Vegas

TriggTrigg is a senior President’s Scholar majoring in business at the Cox School of Business and theatre at Meadows School of the Arts. He was a featured magician in a new Las Vegas magic show.

Lucy in NYC

LucyAs part of the Meadows School of the Art’s New York Colloquium, Lucy was among a group of students visiting museums, galleries, artists’ studios and other venues.

We tasted the best of New York in Little Italy, Chinatown, SoHo, Chelsea, and the Upper West Side (our “home away from home”). We visited neat bookstores and conversed with locals at galleries and at Café Lalo, where part of the movie You’ve Got Mail was filmed. We saw Faust at the Met Opera, and we also saw Anything Goes, Avenue Q, and Relatively Speaking.
