  • Performance : Proust in one hour

    by Véronique Aubouy

    Duration : 60 minutes chrono

    In this performance I try to summarize in 60 minutes In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Peer Mentor Program

Meet the Peer Mentors

The Peer Mentor program is a student leadership program in it's third year at Otis. Upper classmen students commit themselves to helping new students experience a successful transition into the Otis community. Peer Mentors serve as role models by promoting the Otis mission through leadership skills, and diverse talents

Each new student entering Otis in the Fall 2015 or Spring 2016 should select a Peer Mentor that he/she feels will be the best match to be your guide for the coming academic year.

I am in my junior year at Otis, and know the struggles of adapting to a new school, new roommates, new friends, and a new city. As a peer mentor, I am excited to be a friendly, familiar face to first year students, listening and helping them along the way. I love to mess around with Photoshop/Illustrator tutorials, drawing and painting, cooking, yoga, and am available to answer any of your questions.

I became a peer mentor in order to help other students engage with more school activities while providing support and information related to their major especially digital media students. My interests and hobbies include travel, video games, music, and movies.

I am in the junior year of my major focusing on painting. My goal as a peer mentor is to make new students at Otis feel loved, comfortable, accepted, and free! I have a huge love and passion for people, and want them to feel appreciated and not forgotten, and help them understand they are necessary. I'm happy to be a part of the peer mentor program!

I'm excited to help first-year students. I'm on campus all of the time and hope my presence and energy will help facilitate a warm, friendly environment ideal for productivity and learning. If you have any questions about school, music, life, etc. I'll be more than happy to answer them! Also, I really enjoy playing the guitar, so if you're looking for someone to jam with, I'm your guy.

As a Peer Mentor, I hope to make our new and incoming Otis family feel welcomed, as well as point students in the right direction for anything they need. I want everyone to have a good year! I like sports, working out, cooking, and baking! If you have any questions, want to talk, or just want a homemade cake-pop, don't hesitate to flag me down! :)

I'm a senior in Toy Design. This will be my third year as a Peer Mentor so with my experience I know I'm qualified to help. I love meeting new people and striking up conversations so feel free to talk or say hello when you see me around campus! I also love crocheting, cooking, and hanging out at the beach in my spare time. I'm very committed to helping students so please don't hesitate to contact me!

I became interested in being a peer mentor because I have a huge passion for helping people. I know first hand how hard it can be to come to a new place where you quite possibly might spend the next four years of your life. Honestly, I just want to help make that transition as smooth as possible.
