We hope you enjoyed our sneaky April Fool’s issue a couple of weeks ago! Despite this annual Penguin tradition, we had many of you fooled. Too bad for you– you’re still stuck with Kate Lemmon as editor!
For our real April issue, and just in time for Earth Day (April 22), we’re celebrating NEC students from all over the globe. As a music conservatory, ours is one of the most diverse institutionhs in the country. 35% of us are from outside of the United States and we represent 46 different countries. We’ll hear from Liz Tobias, a jazz vocalist from Australia; Israel’s Maya Jacobs, violist and SAC extraordinaire; Mathilde Geismar, France’s food enthusiast, and many others!
The Penguin is bringing culture to NEC for you to enjoy. Recreate your classmates’ cultural recipes from World FoodFest in this month’s extended food section. Read our eleven tips to surviving NEC on a visa. Or if you’re feeling lazy, just take in the eye candy from the Sistema Fellows’ trip to Venezuela.
Until next month, Penguins! Keep in touch– we’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions for future issues! Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. ¡Ciao, adiós, au revoir!
