Yoga with Liz!

3 May

Join Liz Sutton Wednesday, May 8 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm and Thursday, May 9 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm in the West Hall group fitness studio for some some Liz-led yoga!

The Wednesday class is for the Honors community only and is capped at 15 students, so sign up early.

The West Hall Fitness Center has lots of yoga mats or you can bring your own. No prior experience with yoga is required. Just wear clothes you can move in and bring an open mind! Feel free to email Liz with any other questions.

Needless to say, Liz is pretty excited about this.

See Liz in NINE [Recommended Event]

4 Oct

There’s a rumor that your UHP program officers don’t live in the Townhouse – now here’s a way to confirm it! For several months of late evenings, our own Liz Sutton has been working on a production with The Arlington Players: NINE. Based on Fellini’s 8 1/2, the musical focuses on film director Guido Gontini, savoring his most recent (and greatest) success but dreading his imminent 40th birthday and a midlife crisis blocking his creative impulses and entangling him in a web of romantic difficulties in early-1960s Venice.

Performance dates are October 7, 8, 9 (matinee), 14, 15, 16 (matinee), 21. Performance times are 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 3:30 pm for Sunday matinees. Tickets are $20.00, and can be purchased online at www.thearlingtonplayers.org. Its assigned seating so buy tickets soon for the best seats!
Liz had to blackswan a lot of people to get this role, so go and give her your support!

See Liz as POP! in Chicago! [A Play]

17 May

Liz is Pop in Chicago! (Not an actual photo from the show)

Liz IS pop in Chicago!  That’s right, our very own Liz Sutton is one of the merry murderesses in the St. Marks’ Players performance of Chicago.

You can see her as POP! and in both the female and male ensembles, AND as a featured dancer, this Friday.

Get tickets here.  Read the Blade’s review here.

Liz did many community theatre and highschool productions growing up, but that it’s been almost ten years since she’s been in a musical theatre production;  in between she danced with and choreographed for the Spirit of Color Dance Troupe at Tufts and for Tribe, the Dance Company of Boston, MA.

There are only a few seats left (because it’s the last weekend and the show is great!), so get your tickets now.

Greetings from Liz Sutton, new UHP Program Officer

With two weeks as the new Program Officer in the University Honors Program under my belt, it’s my pleasure to both introduce myself and welcome incoming students to the UHP.  We’re beginning our GWU journey together!

Raised in Galway, NY, I most recently spent nine years in Boston, MA – four years of undergraduate study at Tufts University and five years working at Harvard University where I also earned a master’s degree in education. When not working or studying I dance as much as possible!   While in Boston I choreographed for and performed with Tribe, the Dance Companyvisit YouTube for a look at one of my pieces.

2010 marks my eleventh year volunteering with Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY). I was an ambassador at the New York East seminar and the World Leadership Congress in Philadelphia in 1999 and have since volunteered in New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and right here in DC.  I also staffed the 2002 World Leadership Congress at GW, during which I lived in Thurston Hall!  I am also a die-hard New York Yankees fan and play soccer when time allows.

With an undergraduate degree in Comparative Religion and a master’s degree focused on Higher Education, my academic interests lie at the intersection of education, religion, and American public life. These interests include colleges and universities, with particular attention to curricular development and organizational development; religion in contemporary America with a focus on religion and politics; moral and ethical education; and philosophy of education.

I look forward to meeting Honors students and faculty and to spending many fruitful and fun years together!
