In The News

Dec. 18, 2014 - The concept of music as a healing influence is as least as old as the writings of Aristotle and Plato. The 20th-century profession of music therapy began formally after World War II, when community musicians of all types, both amateur and professional, visited veterans hospitals around the country to play for the thousands of veterans suffering physical and emotional trauma from the wars.
Dec. 18, 2014 - Throughout Northern Virginia, Maryland, the panhandle of West Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley, you can find successful leaders and rising stars at a great number of educational and nonprofit organizations. They serve as directors and docents; principals and superintendents; deans and politicians; and nonprofit administrators and community organizers.
Dec. 10, 2014 - The past month was full of challenges and blessings for me. You know how some weeks you feel like a black cloud is hovering over your shoulder? Well, that was how it was for me the week of Thanksgiving. There is a Shenandoah connection so bear with me. My bad luck started with dropping my favorite wrist watch down the bathroom sink drain.
Dec. 9, 2014 - “Without SU, I wouldn't be the actor I am today. I wouldn't be the human being I am today. Those four years were the best of my life. The friendships I formed will outlast most others. I couldn't imagine replacing that education with anything else," expressed new alumni board member, Michael Misko, who earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2008.
Nov. 12, 2014 - The simplest way to include all the SU activities I have been involved with recently was to look at my wardrobe diary for the past month. I was awed, challenged, educated, entertained and inspired by these events. If I had brought a different alum with me each time that would have racked up some numbers toward our goal of bringing 1,000 alumni back to campus.  



To remember Ira Lindberg Harris '10, on the anniversary of his untimely death, alumni in NYC will perform a concert at 54 Below. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Ira Lindberg Harris Scholarship Fund.
