An exhibition of new work by Connecticut artist Jason Noushin opened in Keator Gallery in Baldwin Hall today. The show, titled 400 Blows features new paintings and drawings inspired by the French Film Les Quatre Cents Coups by Francois Truffaut, about a troubled adolescent boy. Noushin attended an opening reception on campus today, where students had the opportunity to learn directly from the artist about his work and process. An evening reception will be held tonight from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in the Keator Gallery, and is open to the public. The show will be on view through October 25. #hopkinsarts #keatorgallery #hoponthehill

Hopkins Boys Soccer opened its 2019 season yesterday with a 1-1 draw against visiting Salisbury. The Hilltoppers started brightly in their first game on the revamped far field. Senior Robert Tullonge played a beautiful ball into the path of frosh Max Fujimori, who scored his first career goal with a neat finish to the far post. Salisbury replied with a goal of their own before the break. Both teams traded chances in the second half before tiring in the heat. Sophomore Zach Bleil went close as did senior Jack Consiglio. 8th grader Henry Glover played exceptionally well at right-back and junior keeper Teddy Glover and sophomore keeper Owen Lamothe split time in goal. Hopkins opens FAA action at Hamden Hall on Saturday. Kickoff is at 2:30. #gohopct ⚽️ @sarumknight
Eight Hopkins students are semi-finalists for the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. More than 1.5 million students applied for the highly competitive scholarship and the semi-finalists represent less than one percent of all high-school seniors in the country. The Hopkins seniors are: Back Row (L–R): C Burton Lyng-Olsen, Yasmin Bergemann, Kyle Shin, and Henry Fisher Front Row (L–R): Lily Meyers, Sarah Roberts, Olivia Wen, and Corinne Evans. The semi-finalists were announced on Wednesday. Over 90 percent of the semi-finalists will be named as finalists for the scholarship. Of those finalists, about half will win a scholarship. To become a finalist, a student and school official must submit a detailed application. The application must contain information about a student's academic record, leadership abilities, the honors and awards they've received and more. Students will find out in February whether they make it to the finalist stage. The scholarship winners will be announced beginning in April 2020. Congratulations to the semi-finalists!

Hopkins students and teachers immersed themselves in cultures and customs outside of their own this summer through global education trips to Scotland and Guatemala. Drama Directors Michael Calderone and Hope Hartup led sixteen members of the Hopkins Drama Association (HDA) on a tour of the largest theatre festival in the world: The Edinburgh Festival Fringe from July 31 to August 11. Students explored, toured and performed in Scotland’s ancient capital along with 4,400 other international productions. Meanwhile in the Southern Hemisphere, a delegation of 15 Hopkins students traveled to Guatemala for a service trip with faculty members Susan Bennitt and Ian Guthrie from August 4 to 14. The group worked at the Pacaja North School, painting small classrooms a cheery, bright yellow where hundreds of Mayan students from preschool to sixth grade attend daily.
