Eden Carswell, Class of 2011

Remember when you were a kid, and you dreamed of being an astronaut, or a firefighter, or a hand model? I had those dreams, too—Eden Carswell the telemarketer, Eden Carswell the singer/songwriter, Eden Carswell the bounty hunter. I never thought for a second that a pre-graduation misstep could eventually lead me to Eden Carswell, “permanently attached to the couch,” Eden Carswell the 30-year-old bum, or Eden Carswell, broke-as-a-joke.

Everyone knows that Dance Show is one of the most popular events on campus. Every semester Dance Show draws in hundreds of attendees, all expecting an exhibition of student-choreographed work that displays an artistic side of the SMCM student body that’s not often seen in the classrooms and lecture halls. Dance Show is generally good for the campus, but internally it looks like a mix between a bad Tyler Perry film and a three-ring circus.

A few weeks ago, a “Boycott Chick-fil-A at the Daily Grind” event page was posted on Facebook to make students aware of Chick-fil-A’s funding of anti-gay marriage causes and groups, and to gain support for equality on this campus.

Remember when you were in middle school, and your mom walked into your bedroom to find you dancing to “What’s Your Fantasy” (a raunchy Ludacris song), flailing your arms around like you were directing air traffic? Remember the horrified expression on her face as she set your CD on fire and forbade you from ever listening to rap music again?

SMCM is known for its rigorous academic programs, scenic campus, and eclectic, friendly student body. Come for the academics? The friendly people? The scenery? Yes. Come looking for love? I wouldn‘t.
