Memories and Metamorphosis

Few people can say that they’ve had the same friend through the entirety of their lives, from grade school all the way into college years. I have, and the journey we’ve been on has taught me many lessons about life, loyalty and friendship.

Andrea Favazza, left, and Lorraine Linson became friends in kindergarten and, despite moving into different interests and circles later in school, they managed to remain close friends even today, proving that friendship is more about experiences than similarities.

The two are posing underneath the tree that was their favorite meeting place on their elementary school playground.     Photo by Ann Linson

MBU English Majors Present Culmination of Semester’s Work

The presentations will be at the Learning Center and are open to the public.

Rebekah Haas, a sophomore majoring in English and secondary education, takes some time to read in preparation for her presentation. Haas will be presenting her research on Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 1:30 p.m.      Photo by Lorraine Linson
