Gruss to be Renovated
BY AKASH BAGARIA ’16
STAFF WRITER
The school has announced the rennovation The Gruss Center of Visual
Arts. Currently, the School is in the
process of selecting an architect for an
extensive renovation of Gruss. If the
project receives approval, construction
could potentially start in June of 2015
and be completed by the beginning of
the 2016-2017 school year.
As part of the project that brought
the Fathers Building, Mackenzie Administration Building, Dawes House,
and Raymond House to campus, the
original section of Gruss opened in
1931. For many years, Gruss functioned as the School library. It was
fondly referred to as the John Dixon
Library until the library moved to
Bunn, whereupon Gruss was converted
to the Hutchins Gallery in 1998. The
primary benefactor behind the conversion was Martin Gruss ’60, while Glenn
Hutchins ’73, Lynn and Bob Johnston,
Tom Stanley, and the Register family
the spring of 1960, the middle section
of Gruss, known as the Carpenter Wing,
was built, and the north wing nearest
Upper House was implemented in
1998.
The renovation of Gruss, mentioned
in a plan approved by the Board of
Trustees called “Strategic Directions
II,” includes several aspects. With
regards to the exterior of the building,
there are no scheduled changes, save
sections of Gruss not visible from the
ground. On the contrary, the interior
of Gruss will see numerous developments. A new and expanded art collection storage space will be instituted in
the basement of the Hutchins Gallery,
along with advanced HVAC equipment to ensure that temperature and
humidity levels conform to museum
quality standards.
Designing the revamped Gruss
Center should take approximately 7
months, followed shortly by the selection of a contractor and the approvals of
township and state permits. However,
while there are hopes that the project be
completed before September of 2016,
the timing is uncertain. The School
may need to wait for the completion of
the renovation of the Corby Math and
Computer Center before tackling the
Gruss project, since emptying Corby of
faculty will cause much displacement.
Thus, the renovation of Gruss may
begin later, in the summer of 2016.
As Lawrenceville’s Chief Financial
puts it: “Whether the School decides
timetable remains a matter of choice
and will depend upon a number of
factors, including a consideration of
how much construction is going on
elsewhere on campus.”

Beer received the majority of the V
Form vote and will be addressing the
Class of 2014 as the Aurelian Speaker
the night before graduation.
Beer currently serves as the Student
and Honor and is a member of the En
Corps Council as part of the dance
group LKR3W. Last year, he served
as Community Service Representative
of Hamill House, and as a II Former
Representative of Davidson. Beer is
a three-year member of the Jazz En-
semble as well as a tri-season varsity
athlete, having run cross country in
the fall, indoor track in the winter,
and outdoor track in the spring. He is
also a member of the OVAL Society
and has received several awards over
the course of his Lawrenceville career,
including the Yale Book Club Award
for outstanding personal character
and intellectual promise, the Beverly
cellence in character and scholarship,
and the Reuben T. Carlson Scholarship
Award for outstanding scholarship,
sterling character, inspired leadership,
and inspiring kindness. Beer will be attending Northwestern University next
fall and plans to major in engineering.
In response to his selection as
Aurelian Speaker, Beer stated: “I’m
mostly just incredibly proud that it was
my fellow classmates who chose me.
Most awards are based off the faculty’s
impressions of a student or a statistic
feels very rewarding.” English Master
Katherine O’Malley, who served as
his teacher for Humanities English
and IV Form English, describes Beer
as a “curious, attentive, and prepared”
student with an “enormous amount of
innate talent” as well as an “impressive work ethic.” She added that “[he]
makes teaching both enjoyable and
rewarding; he is not only engaged and
conscientious but also very witty.” Director of Dance Derrick Wilder echoed
O’Malley’s statements, remarking
that “it is a wonderful gift to have the
ability to bridge the gap between the
adult and peer world so seamlessly, and
[he] does it with grace and humility.”

TO AMMEND AN ADAGE
May at Lawrenceville: it is the most pivotal month in the community as we
become overwhelmed with change. And with change, with the announcement
of house presidents, of prefects, of student leadership, and college decisions, we
feel required to make sense of the new course our lives are taking. During these
times many turn to the adage “everything happens for a reason” to either justify or
comfort the uncertainty that lies ahead. I cringe at its usage almost every time – I
see us all, I see myself, fall into the trap. We are constantly tricked into connecting
too many dots.
There are millions of ways our lives can work out; it’s as simple as opening one
door and shutting another. We are constantly creating new pathways each moment
that we live. We make decisions to study, to apply, to sit down and start conversation.
Two widely different events may lead to the same reaction while two similar events
lead to entirely different outcomes.There’s no way of knowing for sure how you’re
life would have been if you did ____ or made a different decision about _____.
This is one reason why I have an incredibly hard time making decisions. I know
memories and lessons. Each moment we spend living affects the next one. To
suggest otherwise implies that our emotions, our minds are the dictators of reality,
when we must recognize that the reality already exists out there and we choose
how to receive and label it.
For example, take an everyday object like a pen and repeat its name ten times.
Does the word start to lose some meaning? Does it sound weird to you? This is
called semantic satiation. The word liberates itself from any meaning and becomes
usual connection between a plastic tube of ink and the word “pen”, does the actual
pen exist? Well, of course it does. But in that short moment the word and the object
are not one - the “pen” has no meaning to you. In that same vein, we must realize
that even though events happen, they only gain meaning or direction once we
register them. Whether it is attaching a word to an object, or predicting a reason
behind an event, these are all products of our mind, not products of the universe.
It is an illusion, much like the phrase “everything happens for a reason”
suggests. Nothing happens for a reason. Not one single thing. Now, before I am
misunderstood, let me say that I agree with the forethought of the common adage:
“everything happens for a reason.” The statement calls for us to make the best of
what life throws at us, and that is admirable. But it is misleading to suggest that
the outcome of our life events has a predetermination of its own, when in truth we
are all playing the game of contingency.
Sure, a college rejection or a rejection for a position happened for some
reason. But fate is not choosing what you get, your efforts and the leadership that
decides are. Maybe that’s depressing. And in all honesty, if your motto happens
to be “everything happens for a reason,” just roll with it. It’s not hurting you. But
remember that these are unthinking, unemotional events. And too many times, we,
humans, try to think for them
However, you can use your thinking and reasoning to develop an opinion on
life’s occurrences. The rejections you receive, the opportunities granted have no
intrinsic meaning aside from what you give them. No one sent you that college
rejection letter to teach you a lesson unless you view it as one. And remember,
every opinion you have of an event is developed after it occurred; your thoughts
now did not dictate a course of action in the past. So I suppose I’m not asking for the
those that interact with us, and the facts of chance at least a bit more responsibility.

Dare to Be Aware

voting demographics still have not
been released, a small part of me
coin could have been the difference
between one candidate and the other.
That aside, my friend’s apathy at
our generation’s lack of enthusiasm
for larger political issues. Her
decision to vote without any
opinion about the outcome almost
exactly mirrors our generation’s
overlooked ability to inspire widescale political change. After all, we
represent 20% of America, and with
300 billion dollars of purchasing

be ignored.
Policies on the forefront of
American politics, from foreign
relations to health care, affect us
just as much as they do our older
counterparts. As citizens, we have
an obligation to become politically
informed and engage in the dialogue
about many of these issues. We’re all
on the cusp of adulthood; our role
in modern day politics will become
increasingly apparent.

blog in which she condemned the
Taliban’s repression of women and
called for the greater need to educate
girls. The blog sparked a United
Nations petition demanding that all
children be educated by 2015. She
has since stayed at the forefront of
Pakistani politics, generating uproar
and excitement wherever she goes.
Malala, like us, does not have the
right to vote – or for that matter,
the right to an education – but her
political fervor and her attempt to
voice her informed opinions have
caused far more change than a single
vote ever could. A more American
example? Look at the Little Rock
Nine, a group of black students in
the segregated south who enrolled
in their local high school in 1957.
Given that the Brown v. the Board
of Education decision had only just
been announced, black students
joining a white school was virtually
unheard of. The group faced physical
and emotional abuse, but, at our
ages, were catalysts for the process
of desegregation. Their effective
political statement embodies the
notion that teenagers, despite our
glaring lack of franchise, have an
indisputable capacity to engineer
wide-scale political change.
Despite this clear potential for
student involvement in political
life, though, misconceptions
about however seeking political
awareness abound: students cannot
affect politics without voting rights
and students do not have the life
experience to have a say on the
issues that impact them. These
claims are false. In a hyper-modern
world with rapid communication,
“experience” isn’t reserved for the
mature – teenagers have their own
set of perfectly valid viewpoints.

Fighting Unfairness in House Feeds

hungry and ready to recharge after
the weekend’s events.
When browsing the average price
range of hosting a feed for the average House at some of the popular
surrounding restaurants, like TJ’s
and Five Guys, a family could be
looking at spending anywhere from
$300 to $600. This price tag, which
doesn’t include the cost of drinks,
desserts, or utensils, is a hefty investment for a thirty minute chowdown. Now, if your family can afford this contribution that has been
a “campus tradition” on Saturday
nights, I think that the offer to host
a feed is a generous one. The school
begins to run into issues, though,
when the fun tradition of a Saturday
night dining event turns into an economic burden and expectation.
Within the Houses, there are a
variety of approaches to organizing feeds, some of which can create
discomfort for students and their
families. For instance, in one Circle
House, an upperclassman is given
the job of going around to each of
the dorm rooms with the assumption that each member of the house
can and will participate in a feed.
The individual travels to each room,
requesting the date on which a student’s family can swipe their credit
card and pay the large price for a
seemingly innocuous. harmless, and
positive tradition.
Although this may appear to be a
fool-proof and harmless way of assigning weekend feeds, this method
could be uncomfortable for a student whose family can’t afford to
contribute. This puts the student in
an awkward situation in which they
might not have the opportunity to
decline without drawing attention
to themselves. In a certain Crescent House, the girl who hosted the
“best” feed is given an award at the
end-of-the-year banquet. For a student whose family can’t even afford
to participate, she is immediately
excluded from a community element that was intended to be fun and
rewarding. In most houses, a list of
who is responsible for the upcoming feeds is displayed conspicuously
in the common room or shared in a
Google Document, revealing those
who do not participate to the entire
house community. Elements of the
“feed tradition,” such as unwritten
expectations or popularity awards,
transform feeds into another opportunity for some individual students
to feel marginalized or insecure.
Within the House community, inclusion is the prime factor that can
transform a dorm into a home for
students. With that in mind, alterations should be made to the system
of feeds so that the entire House
can enjoy a meal, without giving a
housemate an ego boost or down-

tion could be contacting the parents
of the house members and inquiring
about participating in an anonymous
“feed-fund.”
This way, the House’s budget for
house feeds would be made clear
to the Housemaster and the House
Council. Together, they could determine a reasonable way to afford
feeds throughout the year. In contributing to this fund, no one person
would feel the exclusion that can
come with not being able to participate in an element of house culture.
At the end of the day, some minor
adjustments can be made to this portion of House life in order to make
things a little sweeter for everyone.
