Field Mark (n.): A distinctive characteristic that helps to identify a bird in the field as belonging to a particular species.
As E-town alumni, the College stays with us no matter how far we might travel, and that connection continues to influence us in our lives for years after we have left the campus. Our field marks are the defining characteristics that distinguish us as E-town alumni.
Your stories, reflections and creative expressions are what this publication is all about, filling pages with works that illustrate the transformative nature of E-town, along with its continued influences and inspirations. We’re inviting alumni to share what E-town means to them—whether they graduated last year, in the last decade or beyond.
Think about your learned lessons.
Lingering influences. Inspiring teachers and mentors. Present appreciation of the world.
Insightful perspectives on life. Special experiences that transformed you as a student. Meaningful impressions. Simply put, this work aims to lift up creative accounts and artistic expressions of what it means for alumni to be “Blue Jays. Always.” Because we are all Blue Jays and, no matter how long we’ve been away, we’ll always have a home at Elizabethtown. Field Mark is our connection to that home—no matter how far we’ve flown in the meantime.
Field Mark is seeking original submissions of fiction, essays, poetry, artwork, photography, etc. If you can create it, send it in!
Field Mark is publication of the Office of Alumni Relations and edited by Austin DeMarco ’11 and Nicole St. Pierre ’12.
