CMC launches Postcards from the Ath

Claremont McKenna College’s beloved Athenaeum is bringing faces, stories, and recipes to the community through a new digital series called Postcards from the Ath​.

“The Ath is such an integral part of the CMC experience,” said Athenaeum Director Priya Junnar. “I want everybody, especially our students, to connect as much as possible. These are unprecedented times: We must be creative and bold. And to the extent we can, we must reimagine and repurpose.”

Postcards from the Ath will run Mondays through Thursdays on the Ath’s Instagram and Facebook platforms. Links to events will be posted on the Athenaeum’s home page in the coming days.

The weekly lineup includes:

Mondays: #AthAcademy, a 60-second lecture from a CMC faculty member

Tuesdays: #AthEats, an easy Ath recipe

Wednesdays: #AthThesis, a 60-second thesis project (video) blurb from a senior

Thursdays: #AthArchives, a rebroadcast of a past Ath presentation

“Postcards from the Ath draws on some key experiences that define the Ath. From our speakers to our food, each post distills a meaningful moment emblematic of life at CMC on to digital platforms,” Junnar said.

Coming soon, postings will also appear on Fridays: #AthSneakPeek, a preview of the fall speaker lineup.
