BRISTOL, R.I. -- When most folks think of a searchlight, those immense, unwieldy apparatus that project unmistakable beams of light, often dancing across the nighttime sky. Whether via a traditional carbon arc lamp or powerful Xenon bulbs, searchlights start with a high-intensity source of energy, collected in a parabola-shaped reflector and channeled into a common source -- that powerful beam of light. In many ways, our campus community is a reflective surface in its own right, collecting the energy and lumosity of students, alumni, faculty, staff and partners, returning it to a common source -- Roger Williams University -- and projecting a powerful beam of knowledge, expertise and talent beyond our campus, called upon to solve problems and to serve society.
CEN is going on a getaway to Boston, Mass. to see the Blue Man Group on Tuesday April 21, 2015. Students can sign up to attend online or at our table in the Commons on Monday, April 20 and Tuesday, April 21.
