  • The Campus Current Gets Political

    April 10th, 2012

    This week on the Campus Current we explore politics on all scales. First, Molly interviews Monica McWilliams, co-founder of the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition, who was one of the two women to the sign the Good Friday Agreement. Next, we hear from two campus organizations, the Vassar Democrats and the Moderate Independent Conservative Alliance (MICA) to talk about party politics on campus. Next, Sarah interviews award-winning author and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson, who visited Vassar to give a lecture on her recent book, “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.” Finally, we take a look into the Vassar Student Association electoral process, just in time for the end of filing. Tune in from 5-6pm!

    Travel the World with the Campus Current

    March 27th, 2012

    Now that we are back from spring break, today’s episode of the Campus Current focuses on travel. We start by spotlighting two of the school-sponsored spring break trips, the US-Mexico Border trip, and the International Studies’ Cuba trip. Then we hear from Susan Vogel, the visiting professor who taught this year’s Ribicoff seminar in the Art Department, who discusses the travels of African art objects into the art world and where her own research has taken her. Finally, we look at travel on a more local level, by joining the Outing Club on a hike up Bonticou Crag.

    Tune in this afternoon from 5-6!

    Spring Break for WVKR

    March 4th, 2012

    Since most Vassar students, including many VKR DJs, are off campus for a two-week spring break, WVKR’s schedule is slightly different from March 3-18.  No student shows will air during this period, but your favorite community shows will still be broadcasting and a few DJs have added more time.  Check out the Program Guide section of this website to see the updated schedule for this week and next.  And tune back in to your favorite student shows starting Monday, March 19 to hear the new music they found over break!
