  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings. However, within these lies, she allows us to question […]

Students find future in music

More than 250 prospective high school students were on campus yesterday for Music Discovery Day.

This was an important visitation day for the College of Musical Arts because nearly half of the incoming freshman class of music majors this year attended a music discovery day.

“This is a great recruitment event because it shows students they opportunities available at BGSU and in the College of Musical Arts,” said Katy Moss, Coordinator of Music Admissions.

Activities began at 9 a.m. and students had a chance to participate in various informational sessions through out the day.

They got a first hand view of what the University has to offer by sitting in on typical college classes and various rehearsals.

“Today gave me a lot of information about getting a minor in music. It also gave me knowledge about ensembles,” said prospective student Stephanie Guigov, “I already wanted to come to Bowling Green, but this helped my decision because the music facilities are really nice.”

Students and parents toured Moore Musical Arts Center where they had the option of attending rehearsals of the college’s largest ensembles: the Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Women’s Chorus, Bowling Green Philharmonia, Men’s Chorus, Collegiate Chorale, A Cappella Choir and the Falcon Marching Band. They also had the opportunity to sit in on classes, workshops and rehearsals of the small ensembles at the college.

Visitors met with music faculty and advisers. While meeting they had a chance to find out more about music scholarships and financial aid.

Speakers also gave students information about their future in music. They were instructed on how to prepare for auditions and learned about music theory. Discussions were held about the careers available in the field of music as well.

Current students got involved by giving tours of Batchelder Hall.

The admissions tour guide office gave special tours for the day. Visitors were also entertained by a performance by the Collegiate Chorale, Philharmnic and Wind Ensemble. The events were officially over at 6 p.m. Some students departed at earlier times depending on personal schedules.

“We had a captive audience of students interested in BGSU and after they left they had a great understanding of what we offer,” said Moss.
