Shout out to everyone who showed up the Halloween Open Mic on October 21st in Stewart Hall. The Reflector Editorial Board students Megan Gardenhour, Emily Dziennik, and Alaina Conaway teamed up to bring you this Open Mic and a safe space to share songs, poetry, and writing. 


 Congratulations to our Lavender Graduates who participated in the ceremony in both the Fall and Spring semesters. We are so thankful for your contributions but so sad to see you go. We can't wait to see you succeed! 


We have awarded our 2023 Laura A. Rice Poetry Award to junior Olivia Chovanes. She won a year's subscription to the Academy of American Poets and her poem "Body on Body (after Johnny Cash)" will be featured on their website. You can read her poem at the bottom of the page here
