“The material covered in LSSU's engineering program provided me a solid foundation for graduate studies. The systematic approach and communication skills needed to tackle engineering projects were taught and then practiced over and over again. In particular I appreciate the many hours spent by the faculty to develop oral presentation skills in each student. As a graduate student now, these skills have proven to be highly beneficial and, to my surprise, obviously not taught to the same extent at many other universities.”

Title: Thomas Eakins: Scenes from Modern Life
Movie ID: VT6238
Movie Number: 6238
Description: An artist's exploration of life wends its way through Europe, Philadelphia and the Badlands of North Dakota. A century later, WHYY's cameras retrace the same steps taken by the eminent American painter and photographer of the 19th century, Thomas Eakins. Producer Glenn Holsten traveled to Paris, France; Seville, Spain; North Dakota; and throughout Philadelphia to explore and film the areas where Eakins found inspiration for his work. Fascinated by the rapidly changing world, especially in Philadelphia, Eakins captured the morphing times in which he lived. This video surveys for the first time the artist's full range of achievements in painting, photography, sculpture and drawing. Throughout the program, narrated by Blythe Danner, stills of his works as well as live reenactments of his paintings and photographs are punctuated by footage of the scenery he captured. Interviews with curators and conservators of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, as well as scholars from many universities, provide tremendous insight into the work and character of this American original.
