Each slam is co-hosted by a freshman/sophomore – junior/senior duo. This week it was the lovely Sam (pz ’16) and myself! If you’re ever interested in hosting, come to LitPo or a Grove House Community meeting!

Well my dears, we celebrated our first Story Slam of the semester last night! Thanks to everyone who came to listen, tell, and participate in this fantastic event – it was such a pleasure to host and it’s just a huge reminder to me personally of why this house and the community space it provides are so worth fighting for. Today during our morning Community* meeting we decided that the evening could be summarized (though a bit simply) by the tagline, “bathtubs, bodies, and mountains,” as those seemed to be emergent motifs of the stories told last night. I do hope you will join us for the next slam, which is March 14th and themed Ties – from tongue-tied to black-tie, tying the knot to tying a game, tie-dies to family ties, it’s tieme to tie it all together! As you know, creative interpretation of the theme is always heartily applauded; the facebook event can be found here. Check out the house calendar (on the right-hand side of the home-page) to see the rest of the scheduled slams for this semester.

In the mean-time, enjoy the photos from Pitzer’s lovely online newspaper, The Orange Peel! Click the link for more  – taken by Lianna Johnstone!

(Also if you’re in a photo on the blog and would prefer not to be, let me know – email halbrown@students.pitzer.edu – and I’d be more than happy to take it down!)

Finally, don’t forget to check out The Moth – the freaking AWESOME organization that inspires these Slams. They have a free podcast (downloadable from itunes), and lots of events in LA and other US cities. Click the link for more info!

love,

*we’ve changed the GHC to stand for Grove House Community instead of Committee – more on that to come!
