Hey Y’all!

It’s not finals week yet, but the stress of every looming assignment is weighing everyone down and eating away at our sanity. This week, I’ve compiled a chill playlist full of relaxing vibes that will hopefully help you get through the stress of everything happening at once! As for arts events, this week is packed full of music recitals and concerts as well as a TEDxWomen talk happening this evening!

Friday, November 30th @5pm-9pm, MFA Carrick Theater

Transylvania will be hosting a TEDxWomen event with several notable women in the Transy and Lexington community, as well as Transy alumni. This event aims to explore independent thinking and what it means to be open-minded in today’s diverse world, as well as civility on college campuses. Some of the speakers will include Bianca Spriggs who is a poet and professor from University of Ohio and a Transy alum, Rebecca Blankenship who is a Transy student and News Editor for The Rambler, Nada Shalash, who is a Palestinian student at the University of Kentucky and is involved in  Muslim-American empowerment, and Emanuelle Sippy who is a Henry Clay High School sophomore and member of the board of the Prichard Committee Student Voice Team.
