Acting it Out with Xavier Reyes

Xavier Reyes, a Puerto Rico native, came to IC in hopes of becoming an actor -- he initially was rejected, but this fall he transferred into the Theater program. Reyes now plays the part of Angel, in a local production of RENT; I attended a musical rehearsal and sat down with him.

Riot Girls: Fiction from Tompkins Square Park

Set against the raw and roaring backdrop of New York City in the late ’80s, the Tompkins Square Park Riot of 1988 was the revolutionary climax for a generation of counterculture teenagers involved in the straight edge, hard-core music scene as they protested against a new curfew for the park.

Eleanor Henderson, assistant professor of writing, along with junior Malti Jones, both read excerpts from their works of fiction. The event was at one of the “Thursdays at the Handwerker” series, which pairs a faculty member with a student for a presentation of their works.

Henderson's work, Ten Thousand Saints, was selected for the 2012 First Year Reading Initiative for incoming Ithaca College students to read and discuss.
