During my freshman year, it seemed that every school meeting and sit-down meal was followed by a number of club announcements—both those to notify its members about meeting times and also those to inform the rest of the community about the club’s activities.
It has become apparent to me that, in a secular tone, all of us here at Deerfield Academy have many personal avatars. Think of the times in our lives when something other than our physical presence represents us.
“Number One” and I spent every morning together since my freshman year, beginning with meals with my proctors, then friends in upper classes, until a few remaining friends and I have become the last trustees of that memory-laden space.
…holding a mock funeral for a Choatie and burning a giant C, in my opinion, come too close for comfort to being reminiscent of the lynchings and burnings of the South not many decades ago…
Many of us start our day by visiting DAnet and checking our e-mail and the the lunch menu that day. However, the unwieldy menus on DAnet keep most students from exploring DA’s plethora of other tech resources…
It disturbs me when Deerfield faculty and students oppose an event because it makes them feel “uncomfortable,” especially an event that is diverse in its religious and nonreligious readings. As a recent graduate of Deerfield and former conservative activist on campus, I can attest to the numerous times I felt uncomfortable as a student.
One of our goals at ITS is to make sure that you have a fully functional laptop for school use. All students are issued a Deerfield laptop when they start school at DA. This is the laptop for which we provide unlimited support and we will always make sure you can get your school work done on it.
Sitting in the seventh row of the Large Auditorium at seven o’clock, I turned to look around at rows and rows of empty seats, not only in the senior section. Who was responsible for this lack of attendance? Students? Faculty?
…since we arrived, how many of us stayed in touch with those we left behind and how many of us became too isolated by the “Deerfield Bubble” to look back? To see our roots? Or even or understand a new situation without an air of superiority?
A time to reflect on your high school career, a time to reflect on everything you’ve done both good and bad, on all the friends you’ve made, and on everything about Deerfield you love and will miss.
