P10064: How to Seem Cultured in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
The active Latin verb "videre" means "to see" and in the passive form, "videri," "to seem." Many have adopted their motto from a paraphrasing of a line from one of Cicero's essays on friendship, "esse quam videri," or, "to be rather than to seem." An admirable goal, to be sure. Come learn the simpler Machiavellian variation, "videre quam esse."

H6852: Creative Writing in HSSP Spring 2013 (Mar. 02, 2013)
Do you enjoy sonnets? Witty haikus? Tall tales? Weird noises and pictures made of words (figuratively and literally)? Join us for this class which will explore writing and reading poetry and prose. We'll take inspiration from Shakespeare and William Blake, the Dadaist movement and Shel Silverstein, and many other places and movements and people as well. Put aside fears, pick up pen and paper, and open your mind to the strangely beautiful and beautifully strange places writers, such as you, can take us.
