CCV-Winooski wrapped up its first Science Fair this week, highlighted with a visit and science experiment conducted by Miss Vermont 2015.
Last year CCV launched the Man Up program in Lamoille County to provide college opportunities to young men in that area. Yesterday, in his State of the State address, Governor Shumlin said he’s taking the program statewide and making it more inclusive.
There have been reports of busy bees here at CCV even during the between-semester break! We’ve got instructors with news, institutional happenings, staff news, and a bevy of other items to brighten up your January! Give ‘em a read, and send us your notables!
As I sit on the steps of the huge “mushroom” (the Metropol Parasol in Seville) and soak up the lovely sun in this 63 degree weather, I can’t help but think about how much I don’t want to leave to go back home tomorrow morning. As much as I don’t want to go back to the winter wonderland of Vermont, I don’t want to leave Spain for so many more reasons than just the weather.
Ronda is an adventure for its incredibly beautiful views and scary roads; I don’t believe I will ever forget waking up with my face against the window of the bus and seeing a sheer drop-off to the ravine below.
We traveled to Mérida for one night and one night only; for such a small and ancient town–the population is around 58,000—our hotel accommodations were quite nice. Everywhere you looked there were ancient Roman ruins.
The most beautiful part about being in Toledo is the unbelievable sensation of being in a different era. Narrow, cobblestone roads meander to and fro through a maze of tall, thin, brown buildings with flowers hanging from their windows.
Mérida, Spain has a long and rich history. Ancient ruins and objects are often found nestled against modern edifices. Excavation happens under and around more modern buildings.
Often, when good things happen we say that the stars have aligned. That may or may not literally be what’s happening in the sky at that moment, but whenever it does happen, CCV-St. Johnsbury students will get to see it. Literally.
Self proclaimed “former picky eater” Erin Kiernan has been trying every new food that has been offered in Spain. Knowing she had a new found adventurous streak, I thought I could coax her onto the stage of El Teatro Romano.
