Looking for a new summer jam?
Well look no further; here is Sylvan Esso (featuring Bennington’s own Amelia Meath ‘10) on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
I first discovered this song when my neighbor kept playing it on repeat and I could hear it through our wall. I have never been more grateful to her for playing music at slightly excessive volumes.

The Dewey trees. They bloom into a brilliant pink right in front of Dewey house, but they didn’t really bloom this spring. We think it might have been because of the unusually long winter!

Photos taken last year.

And today on campus everything else seems to be in bloom.

benningtonstudents:

Liam makes good music, most everyone cried at his senior show. You should listen to this, I don’t think it will make you cry, but it might. 

Hear this, Bennington.

Grand Mal

Before Daily Doses and Episodes,

When my hair was still blond, Disordered,

I, in a Steady State,

watched soccer games –

siblings scrimmaging

on summer days.

I balanced on the backup balls,

sideline children Spell-bound.

Then one day, I lost my footing

and Fit effortlessly in the green grass.

A Nifty Fifty writing assignment—fifty words: no more, no less—from faculty member John Gould’s course, "Through Syntax to Style."

Mitchell is writing about his experience growing up with #epilepsy.  Like his favorite poet, Emily Dickinson, he capitalizes the important words.

The Bennington Boat Building Club.

A group of students decided to build a 15 foot plywood boat made from 95% reclaim material in just one semester… in the middle of Vermont.

Faculty member Michael Wimberly, everyone. And his amazing bag.

We talk about The Plan a lot. We are asked about the Plan, a lot. And now several students who have been through the Plan discuss their experiences in one incredible audio piece. Enjoy.
