|Students in The Rock n Roll Experience gave a performance in The Duck at the Inn at DePauw. A standing-room-only crowd turned out to see the the eight bands in the class perform. During the class, students had to form their own band, write an original song, learn how to play together and, for many, perform in front of a crowd, all while learning what it is that makes rock n roll what it is. Read more in this article in local paper, The Banner Graphic.|
|The Boulder is the student newspaper during Winter Term. Stemming from an on-campus class led by Dave Bohmer and students who have experience working on The DePauw, the campus newspaper, students learn to write articles, take photographs, experiment with newspaper design and even sales. News was published online throughout Winter Term, culminating in a print version. Check it out - The Boulder.||Students in New Zealand explored the geology of the country. It was a hands on exploration of the volcanoes, glaciers and outcrops that make up the country's diverse geological and environmental history. Read more on the DePauwRocks blog for more of their experience.|
