How, Then, Shall I Live?

NMH’s youngest students ponder age-old questions and search for meaning in a messy, complicated world

Object Lessons

A stuffed animal. A necklace. A Bible. A pair of Crocs. These are objects that a few NMH students cherish enough to bring with them from home — things that calm them, make them happy, help them face the day.
We invited NMH’s student leaders to answer the question:
What’s your object? Here are some of their answers

Witness

Border walls, travel bans, family separations, never-ending political battles — the U.S. immigration system is broken, with millions of lives at stake.

Immigration Attorney Ashley LaRiccia ’05 doesn’t know how to fix it. 

But every day, she tries.

Disrupting With Purpose

NMH has a history of disrupting the status quo. It started 140 years ago with founder D.L. Moody. Brian Hargrove wants to know" "How are we going to disrupt with purpose as we think about the next 140 years?"

An Eye for What's Next

Whitney Museum curator Rujeko Hockley ’01 champions a new generation of contemporary artists.

Cyber/: Space :Law :Security :Threat

Attorney Deborah Housen–Couriel ’77 was a cybersecurity expert before the word “cybersecurity” ever existed. She explains what’s at stake today — for countries, corporations, and all of us.

Home Cooking

International Carnival is a feast prepared by NMH students from around the world who want to share their cultures. It’s delicious. It’s joyful. We visited kitchens across campus to see how it all comes together.

The Reporter

Whether it’s coal miners in Ukraine or President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, broadcast journalist Ryan Chilcote ’91 will ask anyone anything.

Half of History  

What do Abigail Adams, the #MeToo movement, and the Northfield School for Girls have in common? 

Design. Make. Play.

Design. Make. Play. That’s the philosophy of the
New York Hall of Science and its CEO, Margaret Honey ’74.

Hearing History

A century after World War I came to a grueling and deadly end, NMH remembers alumni who served.

Math Whiz

A motivated math student and an enthusiastic teacher join forces.

The Ultimate Game

Before David Gessner ’79 became a college professor, he played Ultimate Frisbee. More accurately, he lived Ultimate Frisbee, and he documented that life in the 2017 book Ultimate Glory: Frisbee, Obsession, and My Wild Youth

Cultural Equity

Ray Two Hawks Watson ’98 believes minority cultures should play as big a role in Rhode Island’s tourism industry as Newport’s mansions and beaches. He landed a $300,000 grant to make it happen.
