Students Dig Deep into Politics, Religion, and Art
If you haven't had a chance yet, we encourage you to check out the latest edition of The Picador! Before Thanksgiving break, students all over campus, and even one taking a School Year Abroad, weighed in on a range of topics, including the independence of Catalonia, Holderness School's Episcopal traditions, and the efficacy of the US Electoral College.
Here are a couple highlights from the most recent edition:
In Defense of the Electoral College In this article, Kit Urdang '18 comes on strong, defending the Electoral College and a system that isn't always democratic but is perhaps more balanced.
Una Cataluna Independiente (Si o No) In this article, Lolo Zabaleta '18, who is taking a School Year Abroad this year, continues a discussion she began in an October article, tackling the vote for independence in Catalonia. She carefully outlines the most recent events and provides a balanced perspective of Catalonia's future.
For God and Humankind In this very personal and carefully argued editorial, Ali Ferri '19 defends the school's Episcopal tradition and its importance in her spiritual journey.
