The Clarion \ April 1,2020
A look back (and down...)
As we continue to live day by
day duirng this unprecedented
time in our history, The Hilarion
(and Clarion) staff offer this
glimpse from the past before we
had to adhere to a state-mandated
stay-at-home order and practice
proper “social distancing”
This photo shows an aerial
view of Brevard College’s
commencement ceremony in
May 2018 in the Betty Neale
Academic Quadrange near the
bell tower on campus. At the
bottom of the picture (in front of
McLarty-Goodson) is the platform
where graduates walk to receive
their diplomas, and that year’s
graduates is the rectangular,
mostly black block spanning the
brickwork. (Faculty and staff can
be seen at an angle at the bottom
left.) The spots of color amid all
that black come from the academic
regalia, especially the hoods worn
by graduates and faculty alike.
With the postponement of this
spring’s commencement because
of the coronavirus pandemic, we
thought our readers, especially

Chance, a dog candidate, run? Many nave
criticized Chance for running for president,
but just one look at that adorable face and they
will for sure change their minds.
With the number of jokes people make about
politicians being dogs, it was about time one
actually ran for president. Plus, Chance does
have former experience in politics. He was
the former mayor of his town Oakdale, Texas.
He left his old position to move on to more
ambitious goals such as president.
Many people have questioned what political
party Chance will run in. Chance has decided to
become a nonpartisan, which is a good thing. If
he ran as a Democrat or a Republican, one party
might have a clear advantage over the other.
Many people can’t wait to see how it ends
up. Maybe the United States will be the first
country to have a dog president. We will just
have to wait and see while crossing our fingers
for the best.

it to the voting, you can have a trusted friend
to vote for you.
This has been a long time coming, and it was
a difficult decision to make. Brevard College’s
administration wanted to have a fresh new start.
The inspiration has always been in front of us.
The new improvement gives Brevard College a
more “nature-focused” appearance, since it has
one of the best outdoor wilderness programs
in the state. Not only does the college want to
encourage nature lovers to expand their minds,
but also to match the environment around
campus. More representation of wildlife around
us may influence humans to better take rare of
the world around them.
