The W hosted Dr. Benjamin Harvey, associate professor of Art History at Mississippi State, for the Howard Art History Lecture as he delved into his own family history.
Students and faculty alike were welcomed into the Fine Arts building lobby were they were treated to hor d'oeuvres and red and white wine by the glass. Attendees were treated to Harvey and his family’s legacy of art and exploration.
Harvey took the gallery stage to applause. His prominent British accent made clear that his baccalaureate and masters degrees were earned from the University of Birmingham—the one in England, not Alabama.
Cross Culture is making a difference on the W campus through its lunchtime Bible studies and other outreaches
Cross Culture meets every Thursday at noon in Carrier Chapel for lunch and a short Bible study. Students said they find this time to be a refreshing break between their classes.
"The middle of the day is such a great time for friends around campus to meet up, unwind, fellowship together and study the Word," said Steven McIntosh, a biology major. "I just love being a part of it every week!"
Catfish in the Alley was held on April 11 in Catfish Alley. The small festival, which lasted from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., featured live blues music, vendors and food.
Performing artists included Big Joe Shelton, Terry “Harmonica” Bean, Homemade Jamz and Grady Champion.
“I loved it,” said Taya Perry, drummer for the Tupelo based Homemade Jamz. “The sound was great.”
Perry also added that she loved how energetic the festival was.
