Hanna Hejmowski, the executive assistant to the director at the Central European Institute at Quinnipiac University, and her team of designers have been hard at work constructing dresses made completely of recycled materials collected across the university’s three campuses.

In the upcoming weeks, Hejmowski and her 25 student volunteers will design a total of 12 outfits, which will be modeled by Quinnipiac students on April 22 at the annual Earth Day.

“A lot of the students who agreed to work on smaller aspects of this project came to one workshop and realized they were actually interested in designing dresses,” Hejmowski said. “It was really interesting for me to see that transition and for them to become confident enough to want to design on their own.”

Student volunteers will not only help with the designing and modeling of the dresses, but will also work with professionals to do the models’ hair and makeup on the day of the show.

With only a handful of workshops under their belt, the group has already constructed the bodices and parts of the skirts for multiple dresses, which can be seen in the photos above. They also have exciting ideas for more custom outfits, many of which were thought up by the student volunteers themselves.

One designer, Hannah Kissinger, has used Albert Schweitzer Institute booklets and brochures to weave a skirt for her dress, while another, Caroline Artz, has made her entire outfit out of Central European Institute’s “Art as Ambassador” booklets and main Quinnipiac brochures. Hemjowski’s personal design is made out of Quinnipiac Alumni Association gift bags, as well as Quinnipiac wrapping paper, and is featured along with Kissinger and Artz’s in the photos above.

“It’s just amazing to see all these students from different departments coming together to work on one project like this,” Hejmowski said. “This project in particular brings life to the school, and I’m so happy to be a part of it.”

Students interested in assisting in the dress construction should email Hanna.Hejmowski@quinnipiac.edu.

Alumna to participate in Big Event half a world away http://blog.quinnipiac.edu/blog/2014/04/04/alumna-to-participate-in-big-event-half-a-world-away/ http://blog.quinnipiac.edu/blog/2014/04/04/alumna-to-participate-in-big-event-half-a-world-away/#comments Fri, 04 Apr 2014 20:31:24 +0000 http://blog.quinnipiac.edu/?p=5050 Read More ›]]> Thailand_Big Event

One alumna will be participating in the Big Event 8,000 miles away from our Mount Carmel Campus in Thailand.

Nearly 80 Quinnipiac alumni will volunteer at 10 different work sites across the country on Saturday, April 5, as part of The Big Event. This will be the 5th year that Quinnipiac takes part in the Big Event and the fourth year that alumni have also been involved. A record-breaking 1,650 current students are expected to participate.

Amanda shared her experiences about her motivation to make the global community a better place:

I owe a lot to Quinnipiac. My four years there were some of the best experiences of my life, and between the studies, extracurricular activities and wonderful friendships I had, it truly laid a strong foundation for me before setting out into the world.

Throughout my life, I have always had a deep desire to better the lives of others. After graduating from Quinnipiac, I began my professional career as an occupational therapist and have been doing this work for more than 15 years. Nearly nine years ago, I made the decision to leave a higher paying administrative position within the small rehabilitation company I was working for to go back to school for a master’s degree in occupational therapy. I made this decision due a growing desire to better the lives of people on a more explicit, deeper and broader scale. I wanted to be able to step outside of the medical arena and learn more about what makes all of us as human beings thrive and flourish, even during or despite negative external factors.

Part of my master’s study involved an independent research project. I decided to explore the impact of a natural disaster on people’s life stories. I went to Thailand and became a volunteer English teacher for Thai children in a community devastated by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. I spent 10 months living in the area of Khao Lak, Thailand watching a community and its people attempt to rebuild their lives after losing their loved ones, homes, schools and local businesses. The time I spent living and working alongside a group of children, who had experienced such extreme losses, yet, were able to find joy in everyday life again, left a permanent mark on my life. These experiences made me grow significantly as a person and further fueled an already passionate desire to make a positive impact on the world.

I am now married and a mother of two young children living in the Boston area. Last year, I was deeply impacted by the events of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. I am a part of the greater Boston Marathon family. My husband and I met running to raise money for one of their charity organizations. My husband runs the marathon every year and last year, he was just two minutes away from the finish line when the bombs went off. That experience made time stand still for me.

This event served as a catalyst for me to take action and begin to carve a path to create real-time opportunities and learning experiences for young people in this country to develop compassion for their fellow man despite differences in color, background or circumstance and be able to have hope and confidence about their own futures. I believe we can teach people a different way to live, to empower people to create a better world for themselves and for mankind rather than live like a victim.

I am in the beginning stages of launching a non-profit organization, The Boston Strong Initiative. Part of our organization includes Global Outreach projects connecting cultures from across the world, such as in the area where I was living in Thailand.  I have recently started a Sister School Project connecting a school in Massachusetts with an organization in Thailand who supports a marginalized community of Burmese migrants and their families living in southern Thailand. Despite the time commitment involved in juggling being a mother of two young children and working, I am compelled to launch this organization and these projects due to a strong sense of urgency that our greater Boston community is in great need of inspiration and hope as we approach the one year anniversary of the marathon bombings.

I am so excited and honored to be a part of Quinnipiac’s Big Event, a day of community service. I will be traveling to the sister school in Thailand for several days in early April to volunteer, conducting training sessions with the staff, helping out with the student activities and developing further plans for sustainable and long-term involvement. The aim is to be able to provide fun and exciting international service opportunities to students and professionals in the future, so even though I may be only one volunteer representing Quinnipiac this year, who knows what next year will bring!

Bryce Van Brabant, Quinnipiac University junior and men’s ice hockey forward, signed a contract with the Calgary Flames, of the NHL.

Van Brabant is the first Bobcat to officially skate in an NHL game and the second Bobcat to sign with a NHL team a year after Eric Hartzell inked a deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“When we first saw him playing for Spruce Grove several years ago, he had a long way to go to get to the NHL. A very smart hockey player already, he put in the work in the gym with Coach Patel as well as on the ice and bought into the program here at Quinnipiac University which enabled him to rapidly improve as an athlete and mature as a person. Along the way, his contributions to QU have had a huge impact on the program’s success over the past three years, which has seen the program ascend to new heights on a national stage and become a household name in the college hockey world,” said Bill Riga, associate head men’s ice hockey coach.

During his time at Quinnipiac, Van Brabant netted 15 goals in 40 games, added seven assists for 22 points and 113 served penalty minutes.

“We are so proud of Bryce.  He has worked hard in his three years at Quinnipiac to improve his game and help elevate our program to national prominence. Watching him play for the Calgary Flames was one of the better moments in my 20 years at Quinnipiac,” said Rand Pecknold, head men’s ice hockey coach.

“Bryce is one of the best people we have had here and we look forward to his future success in pro hockey and look to continue the excellence he was such a big part of on the ice here at Quinnipiac,” said Riga.

Michelle Norris, who presented this year’s annual Black History Month lecture at Quinnipiac University, is among this year’s Peabody Award winners for her work on “The Race Card Project.”

Norris, a National Public Radio host and special correspondent, visited campus Feb. 19 to present the lecture, “Eavesdropping on America’s Conversation on Race.”

Norris discussed how six-word snapshots paint a vivid picture of America’s attitudes and experiences about race during a fascinating moment in American history.

She created “The Race Card Project” after the publication of her 2010 family memoir, “The Grace of Silence.” In the book, she turns her formidable interviewing and investigative skills on her own background to unearth long-hidden family secrets that raise questions about her racial legacy and shed new light on America’s complicated racial history.

Madeline Guman, a freshman physician assistant major from Trumbull, tastes Crunchy Cricket Salsa on April 1 at the Carl Hansen Student Center at Quinnipiac University.

Christina Ast bit a chocolate chip cookie in half and washed it down with a gulp of vanilla latte.

“I didn’t even taste the cricket,” said Ast, a senior physical therapy major from Floral Park, N.Y. “It wasn’t too bad. Cricket cookies actually pair pretty well with coffee.”

Ast was just one of many brave members of the Quinnipiac University community to chomp cookies and scarf down salsa made with crickets April 1 at the Carl Hansen Student Center on the Mount Carmel Campus.

This was no April Fools’ joke. Julia Giblin’s anthropology students spent the lunchtime rush period trying to convince fellow Bobcats that eating food made with crickets is not only good for them, but also a sustainable solution for the environment.

“Eating insects is certainly not a new idea,” said Giblin, assistant professor of anthropology, who teaches the class, ‘Ancient Food For Thought.’ “It’s done cross-culturally. We want college students to think about their food choices and to try new things that are sustainable.”

A group of student chefs, including senior Eric Arndt, made the Chocolate Chirpy Cookies and Crunchy Cricket Salsa. The main ingredient came from a cricket farm in Louisiana. Arndt, a political science major from Woodbury, is also a line cook at a restaurant. He said the 500 crickets were frozen, roasted and prepped for consumption.

“For the cookies, we mashed them up a little bit so that they fit a little better and you didn’t see a big cricket sticking out,” said Arndt, who freely chirped about the recipes. “For the salsa, we just put sour cream and salsa and mixed in whole crickets and some crushed up crickets. We put cheese on top of it, threw it in the oven and voilà – cricket salsa.”

Arndt did most of his cooking at his apartment.

“It gave off an interesting smell, but any other food gives off a smell as well,” he said.

The anthropology group set up a table in the student center hallway, encouraging those who walked by to challenge food taboos and give the gourmet Gryllus the old college try.

“You can barely taste the crickets, but they do give you that extra protein that you may need for the day,” promised Paige Zacharakis, a senior legal studies major from Sharon, Mass. “Insects can be food. It’s going to be a big part of our future.”

Senior Tom Nassr, an entrepreneurship and philosophy major from Assonet, Mass., was one of the first to put his hands in the cookie jar.

“The cookie tasted normal,” he said. “I think it’s very easy to be trapped in our little Quinnipiac bubble. I think stuff like this is absolutely great for getting people to understand that there are other cultures and other perspectives and the notions of what is acceptable and what is unacceptable aren’t always true. It’s important to be open-minded.”

Madeline Guman, a freshman physician assistant major from Trumbull, went back for a scoop of seconds.

“It was actually one of the best salsas I’ve ever had,” she said.

Results from a survey of those who sampled the food will be part of a report for the TEDx Talks on Sunday, April 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Clarice L. Buckman Theater at Quinnipiac. TED is a nonprofit foundation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks.

The anthropology class is considering offering cricket protein bars and shakes for Earth Day on Tuesday, April 22.

“We went the comfort-food route this time,” Giblin said.

The 36-credit program, approved by the state of Connecticut March 5, will feature 11 core courses and one elective.

Richard Hanley, associate professor of journalism and director of the graduate program in journalism, said Quinnipiac’s School of Communications previously offered a master’s degree in journalism with a sports track. The new master’s in sports journalism program grew out of that and will have two paths of emphasis – broadcast/multimedia, which will be offered on campus, and writing, which will be available exclusively online. It will also be offered as a five-year program for Quinnipiac undergraduates.

“The sports journalism program is designed to position Quinnipiac University as the academic leader in what has now developed into the sports journalism economic cluster along I-95,” said Hanley, referencing media outlets including NESN in Watertown, Mass., ESPN in Bristol, NBC Sports in Stamford and YES, MSG, MLB Network and SNY in New York City. “To us, it’s just like Detroit with cars, Milan with textiles and Silicon Valley with computers. As a university, we are in the middle of an economic cluster that happens to focus on sports journalism.”

Quinnipiac and Indiana are the only universities in the nation to offer a master of science in sports journalism program.

Sloan has since written several episodes of CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother.” In an interview with Sloan, he spoke of the show’s series finale, set for 8 p.m. on March 31 on CBS, and gave advice to Quinnipiac students and alumni.

What was it like to work on “How I Met Your Mother?”

Working on “How I Met Your Mother” was truly a dream come true. Growing up, I always dreamed of working in Hollywood. So when my bosses called me last year and asked if I wanted to become a full-time writer, it very much felt like my dream was being realized. I’m still just beginning my career as a writer, but I will always look back at my time on “How I Met Your Mother” with great fondness. Also, it’s worth mentioning that the four people who run the show – creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, director Pam Fryman and producer Suzy Greenberg – are four of the kindest, most generous people I’ve ever met in my life. They care so much about the people they work with, which creates a truly joyous working environment.

What could you tell us, if anything, about the finale?

It was really important to Carter and Craig that the show has closure. They didn’t want to leave any loose endings. It’s sort of become common knowledge that the ending was filmed many years ago. And while the specific details of the finale weren’t figured out until recently, somehow, after all this time, Carter and Craig stuck with their original vision. But as we all know from watching lots of series finales, ending a show is a very tricky thing. Some people are going to love it and some people are going to hate it. Unfortunately, I think it’s impossible to avoid that polarization because every fan wants something different out of the ending. I will tell you, though, that by the end of the final table read, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. It’s a very moving ending. It was a really special thing to be a part of.

How many episodes did you write?

I wrote three episodes. My first episode, ironically titled “No Pressure,” happened while I was a writers’ assistant. I wrote my second episode, “Weekend at Barney’s,” the following year when I was the script coordinator. And I wrote my third episode, “Platonish,” this past year as a staff writer.

Of the episodes that you wrote, which was your favorite and why?

I really like all the episodes I worked on, but for nostalgic reasons, my first episode is probably my favorite. I frantically wrote the first draft of “No Pressure” over the course of three days while sitting at the kitchen table at my grandparents’ house in Florida. And when we filmed the episode, a big group of my family and friends flew out to LA to be extras in it. I remember a very surreal moment on the set. On the video monitors in front of me was Neil Patrick Harris, behind Neil was Conan O’Brien, who was gracious enough to do a cameo for us, in the background of that same shot, sitting at a booth in the bar, was my girlfriend, Meredith, and three of my best friends – Brian VandeBogert, Andy Soares and fellow Quinnipiac alum Justin Galui. And in the reflection of the monitor, sitting behind me, I could see my mom. It felt like my whole life had been leading up to that moment.
IMG_3504How and when did you get involved with “How I Met Your Mother?”

I started as a production assistant on “How I Met Your Mother” at the end of season three. My first day was June 13, 2008. I remember the exact day because it was my birthday. I got the job because the production coordinator, Reid Watanabe, called me up and said this show he’s working on needs a production assistant to work over the summer and help out the writers. I had worked with Reid about a year earlier on an HBO show called “In Treatment” and I guess he liked me. Honestly, I don’t know why, because I quit that job after only a couple months because the pay was terrible and I wasn’t making enough to pay my rent. But for whatever reason, Reid believed in me and he’s the reason I ended up at “How I Met Your Mother.”

Who is your favorite character to write for? And why?

All the characters are fun to write for, for various reasons. It’s hard not to say Barney, though, because you can get away with some pretty crazy things. One second he’s the smartest person on the planet and the next moment, he can’t do simple math.

Have you always wanted to be a writer?

When I was really, really young, I wanted to be a director. At some point, I realized there’s nothing to direct if you don’t have a script. So I started writing short films and sketches and forced my younger brothers to act in them.

How did Quinnipiac prepare you for your current success?

My favorite thing about Quinnipiac was the freedom we had to go off and work on our own projects. Not everyone did this, but my friends and I would go to the Ed McMahon Mass Communications Center equipment room every week and take out whatever cameras and microphones they had and just go off and shoot a short film. It was great practice and gave us the opportunity to fail without consequence.

What advice do you have for current students wishing to emulate your success?

If the only thing you can see yourself doing is working in TV and movies, then I encourage everybody to just move out to LA and give it a shot. There’s no shame in moving back home if it doesn’t work out, but at least give it a shot. Work as a production assistant for a few years to figure out what you like and what you don’t like. Ask lots of questions. Read as much as you can – newspapers, magazines, books, scripts, everything. And then write as many scripts as you can. Writing is one of the few activities in life that is completely free. Write all the time. Everyone will suck at first. It’s important to write a lot so you get all the crap out of your system early. I still suck. But I’m way better than I was when I went to Quinnipiac. And for the love of god, be nice to everyone you meet.

What were you involved with at Quinnipiac?

I worked in the equipment room at the Ed McMahon Mass Communications Center. I did Student Programming Board for a little while. I took a great course at the Albert Schweitzer Institute. I wrote and directed a one-act play. I acted in a few comedy shows at the Clarice L. Buckman Theater. I submitted poems to the literary magazine. I tried to get involved with whatever writing or film-based activities I could find. I also did a work-study job at the Boys and Girls Club in New Haven and at an elementary school in Cheshire, which were both incredible, eye-opening experiences. And those are the kinds of thing I’ll probably end up writing about.

Anything else you’d like to add?

If you want to be successful, you need to take the reins. Nobody is going to hand you anything, so go out and make it happen. Go out and be creative.
