Maggie McGovney, President of This is Me! Queer-Straight Alliance

By Mara Flanagan
October 25, 2014 - 11:30pm

Visitors to campus in early October are met with a powerful display: over 100 lanterns, stretching across the grass in the glowing formation of a rainbow flag. It's created in celebration of LGBT History Month, but it also serves as a powerful reminder of what so many members of the LGBTQIA community have found at Chatham for decades: a welcoming, safe community.  READ MORE

Kaitlyn Lacey is a storyteller. Studying Creative Writing and Visual Arts, she drafts plenty of her own work. But as Editor of the Minor Bird, Chatham's literary magazine, she's shaping the narrative of a moment in time: the thoughts, ideas and fears of undergrads in 2014/2015. Long after she's flipped the tassel on her mortarboard, the two editions of Minor Bird crafted under her leadership will remain a tangible, meaningful part of Chatham's history. READ MORE

In late September, students leaving JKM Library find a cemetery at their feet. The Artist Collective-designed tombstones mark the graves of books deemed too dangerous for the masses. Banned Books Week challenges students to crack the spines of the works that scare us, and no one champions the cause more fully than Beyond the Page Book Club. Sure, the club offers plenty of opportunities for students to give bookbinding a try or craft a wand straight out of Ollivander's. But there are also chances for members to delve into a perilous, powerful literary adventure. Your guide: President Rachael Owens. READ MORE

By Mara Flanagan
May 19, 2014 - 12:00am

Emily Cassel knows how to run a meeting. As the Executive Vice President of Chatham Student Government, she spent her 2012/2013 academic year hosting monthly Student Organization Forums (SOFs) in Woodland. Crammed into the Residence Life Lounge, representatives nibbled on seasonal snack spreads, sprawling out on comfy couches or crowding around tables. Focusing dozens of students at 9pm sounds like a challenge, but everyone knew to settle down for a discussion when Cassel took her seat in the center of the floor.   READ MORE
