Several Tibetan monks recently visited St. Scholastica’s campus to create a sand mandala in the student union. The monks worked day and night for seven full days on the sand painting, only to destroy their work in a short ceremony. The monks’ presence on campus was intended to spread awareness about Buddhism as a part of St. Scholastica’s commitment to intercultural studies.
Stories included in FIRST TAKES packages were written by CSS students in Newswriting and Reporting, and edited by students in Advanced Journalism. All the stories in this section focus on a single topic.
