Sosua Beach, Dominican Republic

Day 4: A Day at the Beach

Posted · Add Comment

  On Monday we decided to visit the white, sandy beaches and clear, blue water that attract so many tourists. We went to Sosua Beach and enjoyed its breathtaking tropical beauty. This gave us the opportunity to view the Dominican culture from a tourist’s perspective, and we took note of the cultural surroundings. While we were making our way down Sosua Beach, we were stopped by many vendors. If we even looked in their direction, they would stop us and try to make an offer. We weren’t accustomed to being followed around and pressured into buying an item. While we were sitting on the beach, women would come up to […]

Westerns sped across drive-in screens with thrilling speeds, Elvis Presley swooned many hearts with his musicals, and cartoons became full-length films when Disney grew popular at movie houses. In the United States, before the cinema industry expanded into what it is today, there were drive-ins and movie houses in many small towns across the country. In one of those small towns, six year-old Elaine Marshall gazed upon the screens in wonder, watching adventures unfold before her eyes. During her childhood, going to the movies was a grand experience, a […]

Heart of Barton: Hannah Finkelstein

by Aaron Flake, 2015 PR Intern It was the first day of my junior year at Barton. At the time, I took a course dedicated to John Milton, the author of Paradise Lost, and had no idea who my other classmates were. “There would only be other English majors,” I remember thinking, as I waited alone in a classroom only lit by cracks of light. I arrived early and the closed blinds barely let the sun shine in. But soon after, another student appeared in the doorway. I felt a smile quickly spread across my face. Hannah Finkelstein, who was also a junior, and one of the friendliest people I […]

Sculpting Minds and Inspiring Futures

by Kirk Butts At first glance, finding a connection between a potter’s wheel and a college degree seems like a futile effort. It might even be considered a “stretch.” Take a moment though, and look a bit closer. Throwing a pot is hard work. It takes focus, ambition, and, most importantly, imagination. The artist must have a goal in mind, and must follow that goal to the end, even if it changes and evolves along the way. Sometimes, it is necessary to start over and begin again. When you think about pottery in this context, each action echoes the efforts it takes to earn a degree. And with that, a […]
