BY DANIELLE REBEL

“I call myself a story catcher,” Holtan said. “It’s from a book I love about the ability of listening and finding people’s stories, then I get the privilege of telling those stories. As a result I have hundreds of stories wrapped up in who I am because of all these people.” Read the rest of this entry →

Music alum’s life a mix of glamour and grit

Posted on January 29, 2015

Imagine an event where make-up artists wait in the restrooms to refresh your “look,” where champagne flows like water, where the entrances and exits of A-list celebrities are choreographed to the second by dead-serious backstage workers with “walkies,” and where Oprah Winfrey personally compliments you on your necklace.

Rachel Goers copyFor MSUM alum Rachael Goers, that was a night at work, albeit an extraordinary one. Goers, a 2013 graduate of the Music Industry program with an emphasis in business, works full-time for The Teahouse Company in Los Angeles. Teahouse represents and manages six different bands, hired out for special events. The event described above was the Golden Globes. The band hired to perform as guests arrived and entered the ballroom was one of Teahouse’s — the Black Canary String Band.

Spotlight on Service-Learning: Dr. Nandita Bezbaruah

Posted on January 29, 2015

Q & A with Dr. Nandita Bezbaruah

Dr. Nandita Bezbaruah has taught 4 years in the Social Work Department. Courses taught with SL component: SW 250: Social Welfare and Social Work course, COMH 315: Health Agencies and Services, COMH 301: Women and Children Health

What is your background in service-learning?

I started incorporating service-learning component in several of my courses in 2010. Currently, students have to complete 15 hours of service-learning in Introduction to Social Welfare and Social Work course (SW 250). This is one of the prerequisite courses to apply for the Social Work program. I feel service-learning gives students an experience and exposure to various human service agencies, which is so vital in social work and related fields. Read the rest of this entry →
