The Hartt School

A Brief Look At The Community

The Hartt School
WWJD

The clock ticks to 10 am and all the doors in the Mort and Irma Handel Performing arts open up as dozens of the hartt school spill out of their 8:30 classes. Voices fill the halls as people run up to hug one another and tsk about everything that happened last night. There isn't a person left alone, everyone has someone who is dying to talk to them. After 10 minutes of intense socialization everyone scatters to head into their next dance class or rushes to backstage to grab something to eat. At this early hour the sun is just starting to illuminate the love wall put up a few months ago in the face of the election. This wall features messages from student and Staff detailing how no one is alone and that there are so many reasons to love life. It's a beautiful thing to see walking into the building everyday.


The Hartt School is a subset of the University of Hartford and includes within it Music, Theater, and Dance departments. The theater and dance students take most of their classes off campus at The Mort and Irma Handel performing art students while the music students take their classes on campus at the Alfred C. Fuller Music center. Though the students are all scattered throughout the university there is an unspoken solidarity between them all. The musical theater students take ear training and theory classes with the music students. The vocal performance students attend theater productions and the theater students attend theirs. The dance shows are always an exciting event and draw students from every major to them. All divisions support one another and in this way build solidarity. It is a fantastic school that I am proud to call home.

As they tend to say, its the most wonderful time of the year! People have begun to compile their Christmas to-do lists in anticipation for the season of sugarplums and gingerbread.

The history of the Christmas to-do lists goes back hundreds of years, almost as old as the holiday itself, however, people tend to fall out of this habit as they get older. This is unfortunate, as the theme of Christmas tradition can add bundles of the spirit of joy to your families.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
