Semester in Review

In the last semester of the decade, Pierce saw student performances, community crises and the youngest ASO president to date. 

The Theater department produced the slasher-comedy “Hookman” and the American classic “Our Town.” They also coordinated the first “Art Walk,” which featured various programs and activities on campus. Each week, the Applied Music Program (AMP) organized weekly Thursday Concerts featuring AMP professors and students. 

ASO hosted the semesterly Clothesline Project which spread awareness and support for survivors of abuse. The Pierce community also came together to help those affected by the fires. 

Pierce also saw new leadership with President Alexis Montevirgen and Associated Students Organization (ASO) President Vivian Yee, both of whom are the youngest to assume their respective positions. Yee replaced the previous ASO president who was impeached earlier in the semester. 

Montevirgen hopes to improve community engagement and bring transparency to the campus in the upcoming semesters.
