As part of his honors thesis, Nate Stephenson ’18 of Ellsworth, Maine, plays Everyman, a character from Nikolai Gogol’s 1835 short story “Diary of a Madman.”
.
Senior Lecturer in Theater Katalin Vecsey adapted the play (presented in encore performances Jan. 26–27) so that it’s set in the present day.
.

Everyman could be any one of us, Stephenson says. “But he’s still one person. So you have to find how to play one person who can be anyone.” #batescollege #theater #arts #acting #onemanshow #gogol #batesvoices2018.

"There's no contradiction between the work you do to support yourself, and your family and work with meaning. Research has found people find meaning in different ways: Work has meaning when it transcends the workplace and just you," said Bates President Clayton Spencer today during a live radio broadcast of Maine Calling on the Road, hosted by Maine Public's Jennifer Rooks from the Edmund Muskie Archives at Bates.
.
Rooks explored the topic of Purposeful Work with Spencer, Rebecca Fraser-Thill, director of faculty engagement and outreach for Purposeful Work, and Bates senior Reed Mszar of Manassas,Va.
.
Now in its fourth year, Bates' Purposeful Work initiative is a structured program of supported exploration, discovery, self-reflection, and skill-building designed to align students' interests and talents with the work they will ultimately pursue after graduation.

The Bates MLK Day observance ended with a powerfully delivered Sankofa performance "Try, Try Again," created and directed by Michael Hogue ’20 of Chicago.
.
"Inspired by science fiction, the theme of this year’s production speaks to the journey of the black individual. The performance followed a young man who seeks people to help him spread his truth: only through pure compassion and unconditional acceptance can we all survive on Earth. As he starts his journey, the young man quickly realizes that manmade social systems of separation have blinded people from the truth. Will he find the people he is searching for? Or is he simply too “out of this world” for Earth?" (Phyllis Graber Jensen/Bates College) #batescollege #batesmlkday #mlkday2018 #africandiaspora

"[When making a print] you have to deconstruct and reconstruct the image." - Curlee Raven Holton 
__

Holton's series, "Othello Re-Imagined in Sepia," questions ways in which race, so relentlessly coded to the body, has been culturally constructed as a form of social and psychological impairment.

The morning after, the sun rises over Campus Avenue and Grounds and Maintenance continues cleanup efforts on Alumni Walk. (Phyllis Graber Jensen) #batescollege #storm #aftermath #winter #sunup
And finally, throughout campus you can hear the beeping of grounds and maintenance vehicles as they clear the walkways and parking lots. Here a truck plows the lot behind Lane Hall. (Phyllis Graber Jensen/Bates College) #batescollege #storm #blizzard #essential #thankyou

Throwback Thursday from time in America... A passionate message I delivered to many people last year... We all have that one person that made sacrifices for us to be where we are today... Go show them it was worth it, in whatever you do... #throwbackthursday #beyourbest #giveeverything #sacrifice #motivationalspeaker #performancecoach #batescollege #batessoccer

This week, we'll be sharing several photographs from 2017 featured in a collection of 30 by Bates photographers Phyllis Graber Jensen, Theophil Syslo, and Josh Kuckens, who explain why they're among their favorites. See the link in our story to take a look at all the photographs and commentary.

Quiet Light
“Khalil Muhammad delivered the 2017 keynote address on Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Bates. For big events at Bates, there are often two photographers working. On those occasions, I feel a freer to look for quiet moments. The morning light was pouring into Gomes Chapel, illuminating Muhammad and his glasses as he waited in a pew to deliver his address.” — Josh Kuckens
.

Gotta Wear Shades
“I like to try to show something different from what people are expecting to see. It can be a challenge, but it motivated me to create variety. After snapping a few photos of first-year Bates students in front of a lighthouse during a trip to Portland Head Light last August, I decided to start playing around with the frame, which eventually led me to see the lighthouse reflected in Perla Figuereo’s sunglasses.” — Theophil Syslo

Light and Lace
Photographers try to make their own good luck. During Back to Bates, I was photographing the Shabbat evening service and dinner in the Benjamin Mays Center. Brooke Drabkin ’18 had just lit two Shabbat candles and was listening to the service leader, and her lace dress was kissed by candlelight. What could have been an ordinary photo of a religious service became a little more meaningful with some creative camera framing and pretty light. Beauty is in the details.” — Theophil Syslo

Helping Hands
“My assignment at a downtown nonprofit, the Center for Wisdom’s Women, was to photograph two students, Grace Jurkovich ’18 and Ali Rabideau ’17, as they worked with the center to create and market herbal products. As I photographed, it was clear that a group portrait was needed to convey the power of their partnership with women at the center, which offers safe haven, support, and community. And what better way to show the collaborative nature of their entrepreneurial venture then through a study of their hands?” — Phyllis Graber Jensen

"I just wanted everybody to get together to enjoy ourselves. I believe that people bond through food. And I just love cooking for people. A lot of stuff I cook I don’t eat myself because I am vegan. But I love cooking eggs and all that stuff for people who enjoy them. So, why not?"

-- Hermione Zhou '21 of Shenzhen, China, on planning a glorious New Year's Day brunch which she prepared in the kitchen of Chu House for the men's and women's basketball teams, along with other students and staff (such as Security and Dean James Reese) who are on campus during winter break. Sunny Piplani '21 of Singapore served as sous chef.
.
After canvassing 30 or so guests for their menu preferences, she purchased the ingredients from an Auburn health food store to promote local business and sustainable eating.
.
"I’m not a big fan of new year’s resolutions," Zhou says, "but I hope people can get to know vegan a little bit more, to see how we can change our diet styles in more sustainable ways, such as choosing tofu over beef, and to support our local farmers and businesses."
.
Her "crazily wide range of choices" included pancakes, maple granola with nuts, sugar-free chocolate pecan cookies, oatmeal and overnight oats, omelettes and scrambled eggs, tofu scramble, lentils and bean curry, and vegetable salad.
.
Wow.

Tom Coyne '20 of Falmouth, Maine, led all scorers with 24 points this afternoon against Brandeis University. But Brandeis player Collin Sawyer hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to give the Brandeis University Judges a 76-73 win over the Bates men's basketball today, Dec.31,  at Alumni Gymnasium. The shot concluded a dramatic contest that saw the Bobcats (7-4) rally from a nine-point deficit at halftime to eventually take the lead before the Judges (3-6) stormed back for the victory.

My awesome grandmother, Jan, passed away this year. Today I got to visit her alma mater, Bates College, in her honor. I miss you, Jan!
