The Vivian Webb School made a clean sweep of the team titles by a score of 18-0, aiming to defeat their final competitors before league finals. —Vivian Jia '18
 
VWS Volleyball
Vivian Webb’s varsity volleyball players struggled in their first game after October break in a non-league game against Garey High School. On Friday, October 13, the Gauls lost 0-3 with set scores of 17-25, 17-25, and 15-17. Although the score did not favor VWS, our players made many powerful hits against Garey’s strong players and had an effective defense team. “I think we did well on communication last Friday comparing to many other days, but because Garey was a decent team, it made sense for them to win,” said Sara Hagiwara, a sophomore and first-year varsity player. “Since our team has a tendency to go up and down, I think we started off rather strong but then things went a little bit rocky. Because we made mistakes and got mad at ourselves for it, it affects the whole team during the game, therefore we should learn to trust ourselves as well as our teammates more.” —Ivy Liu '19

  • About Art School

    In an expose of sorts, one pegged to the publication of Gary Alan Fine’s new book Talking Art (U of Chicago Press, 2018), Charlie Tyson explores the facts and fictions surrounding MFA programs in the visual arts in America. A review of Fine’s book finds that seven of the 10 most expensive higher-education institutions in the U.S. are, in fact, art schools. But is it worth it? Maybe, if you want to be a professional artist. Tyson’s article also notes that more than half of the top 250 best-selling American artists at auction have an MFA.
