Vote now in the "Pick the Ultimate Utopia" Web poll
RELEASED: Feb. 9, 2006
DANVILLE, KY—Which is the most-perfect ideal society? The Centre College community, along with the general public, is invited to vote in a Web poll.
For their final CentreTerm projects, 15 freshmen in Milton Reigleman's "In Search of Utopia" class set out to construct their own utopian societies. Five utopias were constructed by teams of three. The three most compelling (by vote of the class) are described in detail here. Check out the entries from Tolerance, Nevada, the Bouncers and the Concord Circle—then cast your vote (one per person) for the most-perfect perfect society.
Here is a quick listing of some of the major features of each community:
Matthew Howell, Lisa Notier, Ginny Reynolds, architects
Laura Behrendt, Chase Martin, Chris Williamson, architects
Vince Kline, Elizabeth Pulliam, Mari Rayl, architects
Each member of the winning team will receive a grab bag of utopian goodies, including a the classic Fountains of Wayne Album Utopia Parkway ; dinner on the Communications Office at Lynn's Paradise Café in Louisville; a fruitcake from Gethsemani Abbey (one of the utopian communities visited by the class); and if we can find one, a souvenir of Paradise, Pa.
Results will be announced in the coming weeks.
