Be a gladiator in a suit!

Count me among the millions who will be watching the season premier of ABC’s hit television series “Scandal.” From the beginning I was consumed as much by the pithy scripting as by Olivia Pope’s blouses and coats.

Not your mother’s dorm room

It may have been a while since you’ve crossed the threshold of a dorm. I lived on campus all four years at college and the self-serve waffle station was the only feature worth remembering.

Welcome

Whoopi Goldberg called the Savannah College of Art and Design ‘the place she dreamed of as a kid.’ Me? I did all the traditional stuff: sports, service, student government. At home, with a coach for a father, weekends were spent at football games or watching them. By age 16, I could name more thousand-yard rushers than I could contemporary American artists.
