As we all know the struggle of navigating dress codes, the Career Center is looking for students to help us create a catalog of what the different kinds of professional attire look like. We want to help you tailor your professional wardrobe to your taste and your needs so that you feel comfortable and confident heading into that interview or networking event. For this purpose we are looking for students who represent a diverse set of body types and dress tastes to feature in our catalog and Instagram campaign on how to Dress To Impress! We will be consulting the models on their preferences and curating outfits which they will wear for a photo shoot.

If you want to do something new and experience a day in the life of a model please contact s_koleva@coloradocollege.edu or kdunner@coloradocollege.edu

Imagine spending block one in Paris next year!

In AH275/HY200 Paris on a Precipice: Early Twentieth Century Challenges in Art and History

Next year, Gale Murray (Art History) and Tip Ragan (History) will offer a new course AH275/HY200, Paris on a Precipice: Early Twentieth Century Challenges in Art and History, which will take place block one in Paris, France.

Course Description: This course will explore politics, cultural, and social history in Paris from 1900-1940. The radical years prior to the First World War, the apocalyptic war itself, the anxieties of the interwar years, and the impacts of ongoing industrialization, colonialism, and ideological positioning serve as the backdrop for the most important and shocking artistic and literary movements of the era. Using the city of Paris as our laboratory, we will study artistic movements, such as Fauvism, Cubism and Surrealism, novels by French and expatriate American novelists, avant-garde musical compositions, and experimental film. Visits to world-class museums, including the Orsay, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée Picasso, and the Fondation Le Corbusier, will prove central to this exciting intellectual odyssey.

The course counts toward the major and minor in Art or History. We have petitioned the faculty for social inequality (S) credit. It has no prerequisites, and knowledge of French is not necessary. The program is a lot of fun and a great opportunity for students who want a study abroad experience. We anticipate that it will fill up very quickly, so if you are interested, please contact us. We will be happy to provide you with further information and put you on our contact list.

Applications will be made available in the near future. Interviews will take place in block 5. Applications for financial aid will go live on Summit around March 1st. Financial aid for abroad classes runs out quickly, so those who apply early are most likely to get it. Interested students should email Gale Murray (gmurray@coloradocollege.edu) or Tip Ragan (bragan@coloradocollege.edu) for more information.
