Student Engagement

In October, a yellow school bus full of Bard High School Early College Students made the trip to Bard College for the Hannah Arendt Center's Human Being in an Inhuman Age Conference. Alex Eaton--videographer, Bard grad, and friend of the Arendt Center--was on the bus with the students and followed them along during the conference. Here is her remarkable video essay of the early college students and their engagement with the conference.
