Bravo, Booth

021518_assembly-2050Assembly is the heartbeat of life at Nobles. More than 700 of us come together four mornings a week for a shared experience of student performances and stories, announcements and guest lectures. But the behind-the-scenes Booth crew that makes assembly hum doesn’t always get the kudos they deserve. They arrive early to set up a/v equipment, lighting, play awesome music, and organize content and presenters—and if all goes smoothly, no one thinks about it. Thanks, Booth!

Surprise Serenade

VDay2018-1937One of Nobles’ favorite Valentine’s Day traditions is a serenade in assembly by the Nobleonians (our boys’ a cappella group). Today, they brought an unsuspecting Miki Martin ’19 onstage, where they regaled her with roses and sang Michael Jackson’s “PYT”. Another time-honored tradition, Campuses Against Cancer’s rose sale, gives everyone a chance to send roses for friendship and appreciation while also supporting medical research.

All Is Fair in Clubs and Orgs

JCCThis year’s Clubs and Organizations Fair offered nearly 40 different opportunities for students to try something new, pursue a passion and connect with others who share similar interests. Just a few of the many options competing for members were Innovations and Technology, Campuses Against Cancer, Marine Conservation, Students United for Racial Justice and Equity, Young Democrats, Young Republicans, Students for Gender Awareness and Weiqi Club. It was tough to choose! Some decisions may or may not have been influenced by cupcakes and swag. Here, Magdalena Blaise and Kajayla Boyd (both Class I) check out Jewish Culture Club.
