Students will have the opportunity to take a free practice ACT test and gauge their strengths and weaknesses in different areas. The exam will last for 4.5 hours and simulates the actual ACT in every way. It is conducted by professional proctors from Kaplan under realistic testing conditions.
In addition to taking the free practice test under timed conditions that simulate the actual ACT administration, students will receive feedback on their performance. This includes an analysis of their strengths and weaknesses by question type and level of difficulty and assists them in adjusting their preparation accordingly. Students can expect a call within two weeks of the test from a specialist who can send them an e-copy of their score and explain the various metrics in the report.
Students are asked to bring pencils and a calculator, and may also bring a snack if desired.
With photographs and text by photographer Mathew Duman, “Gargoyles” sheds light on the stationary characters of masonry, wood and metal located around the Yale University campus that passively observe and protect from the walls and rooftops of many of Yale’s buildings. These sculptures are commonly referred to as “gargoyles” or “grotesques,” but Duman feels these terms may be too narrow in scope to sufficiently describe them. While some may seem dark and somber, many others are lighthearted and playful. All are infused with a sense of humor and personality, which makes them more than mere decorations – they are an important part of the spirit of itself.
Mathew Duman is a photographer and graphic designer who grew up in Bethany, Connecticut. While studying abroad, he developed a fascination with the grotesque sculptures of the cathedrals of Britain. In addition to England, Matt has made photographic trips to Italy, Africa, Australia & New Zealand. Matt currently works at the Knights of Columbus in New Haven. He began exploring the variety of sculpture found on the buildings of Yale University a few years ago and as a personal project, has researched and documented these “new world” grotesques which are closer, but no less bewitching than their European counterparts.
