Chartwells, the primary food distributary and social hub for most students on our campus, is an established part of the Simon’s Rock experience. Many students dine at this locale twice, even thrice a day, savoring the delicacies it offers, spending time chatting and unwinding in a peaceful common area. However, for something so integral to life at Simon’s Rock, what do we really know about Chartwells?
Folks, we are living in hard times.
Those in charge now believe that they can impose their ideologies on the rest of us, and their efforts to do so only serve to anger those affected. Political disagreements are turning into violent confrontations, as in the case of a protestor who was assaulted for daring to support our nation’s founding principles: “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”.
Benjamin Kapit is a first-year student at Simon’s rock who is currently filming a television series that he created with the help of other students who act, film, edit, design, and do sound work on this project. Most of the work for this show is done on-campus, particularly in Kendrick, so you might have even seen them around. I interviewed Benji the week before our midterm break with the hopes that we could introduce more students to his project, either as viewers or contributors, by letting everyone take a look into his artistic process.
