Proof that Bennington students really do love their classes: I got an email from one of my professors on Monday saying he was sick and didn’t know if he could make it to class on Wednesday. For the next two days, I kept praying he could because currently we are reading White Noise by Don DeLillo, one of my favorite novels of all time. The fact that I get to discuss it in a class is beyond exciting to me. This morning I got the fateful email saying that, yes, class had indeed been cancelled. However despite this, a few of us in the class got up, ate breakfast together, and talked about the book. It was a spirited conversation. Additionally, last night a friend of mine in the class came over to my house’s common room and we worked on our papers together, freaking out about how awesome this book is.
