Congratulations Class of 2013!!
This year 14 students graduated with an LAS concentration: Gabriela Bello, Sara Bloem, Jane Brown, Patrick Branigan, Jessie Chen, Samantha Dempsey, Esther Hong, Molly Jackson, Courtney Lam, Connie Leung, Emma Cheung Mendel, Elizabeth Roberge, Rita Rosenfeld, and Nivedita Sekar. This class included the co-founder of The All-Nighter, Courtney Lam; the co-founder of the RISD Exhibitionists, Rita Rosenfeld; 2013 Year Book editor, Jane Brown; long-time XYZ writer, Samantha Dempsey; and 2013 Undergraduate Commencement Speaker Jessie Chen. They give us a glimpse into the enormous contribution our Concentrators make to writing and performance at RISD.
Our Concentration Coordinator, Mairéad Byrne, organized a truly celebratory luncheon, and presented each student with a trophy made by Tom McFarland (PAINT ’14).
