Based on Brown Girl Dreaming: End of Summer by Jacqueline Woodson Too fast to let the summer leave us, we meet, talk, walk, play together at 100th Exeter Summer it might be the last time that we will not see each other again.

Faith in Fate

July 18, 2018 6:25pm | Derin Kutlay

It wasn't Britain's fault Neither your ancestors' nor yours It was how it all started, with fire And how it will all end in ice Not in the two poles but in our hearts. How we would die alone, a prophecy foretold How Anne would die violently, how Henry wouldn't remain victorious Told before Samuel met Lilith, Adam met Eve Now that you aren't here anymore, God stands beside your bed With luck and charm clear in the corner Wiping tears from laughter as the other's plan…

July 11, 2018 9:33pm | Justin Burks

Exeter Summer has finally started and students have just recently began to feel like it's their home. With the process of making new friends and mapping out your schedule for the next five weeks this first part has not been easy.  But because they are who they are the students of Exeter have adjusted quite fittingly. Now the big question on everybody's mind is what is there to do. Some have decided on the stage.          The theatre was created somewhere back  in the 4th century B.C.E.…

Broad Face

July 11, 2018 8:32pm | Derin Kutlay

I could really like a romantic pastoral life With the pastel pink aesthetic And a lovable farmer, hills of serene white grass A church we attend every Sunday Red cheeked children running along the erased and redrawn corners of lakes But there is the ignorance, the apathy Something inside twisting and turning to break away free A spit on the graves of close minded mayors And another on every alive and robust fellow With no admiration to the starry night, or its god. …

How would you define your style this summer? These five weeks were all about fashion trends, as a result of the number of cultures and different personalities.

The Sound of Music

August 2, 2017 9:51pm | Blane Zhu

As the Exeter Summer program draws to a close, everyone has a little bit of nostalgia for the past five exhilarating weeks: Classes, Sports, Activities, Friends and Memories. Despite coming from different continents and speaking different languages, students still manage to create friendships and connections amongst each other, thanks to a common shared interest. For some students, this interest is their passion for music. Each weekday, music programs (including the Evening Ensemble, the Jazz …

A Talent For Excellence

August 2, 2017 9:51pm | Claudette Wilson

Last Saturday night was unlike any other we’ve spent here at Exeter Summer. It was the night of the highly anticipated talent show. The show was rightly dubbed 'Exeter’s got talent', because as we witnessed that night, the Exeter community does harbor some extraordinary talent. People began filing in half an hour before the show commenced, in order to grab the best seats in the assembly hall. While some came only for entertainment, others were there to support friends who were brave enough…
