Happy New Year! As we transition into 2017 and prepare for a busy spring semester, we pause here to acknowledge the recent accomplishments of CCV students, faculty, and staff.
CCV student David Demasi has spent a lot of time thinking, reading, and talking about outer space. He has detailed hypotheses about counteracting Martian gravity, shielding astronauts from cosmic radiation, and achieving warp. He’s even been to NASA.
This year, CCV is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its online learning programs, which have contributed to making the College one of the most accessible institutions of higher education in the state.
CCV grads Justin and Randi-Lynn Crowther own and operate Burlington Record Plant, where pressing vinyl records has become a means of creating community.
Snow has turned our Green Mountains white, and the fall semester is quickly coming to a close. This month we recognize several of the writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and activists who are enriching the CCV community!
In one photograph, you see nothing but dense German forest; one shows oil fires in the desert; one reveals the wide and slow-moving Euphrates River. These images were taken by two men who have nearly 35 years of military service between them. In celebration of Veterans Day, CCV invited two Vermont veterans to share their stories.
As a seventeen-year-old student at Lamoille Valley Union High School, Morgan Langlois’ dream was to join the Navy. Today, she is an outreach specialist for Vermont Veterans Outreach.
Dodit Tshibamba Buabua lives in the heart of Winooski, an easy walk to the city’s CCV campus—a good thing, as he is an active member of the College community: in addition to taking classes here, he’s an IT intern, he works in the Learning Center, and he’s one of the College’s Job Hunt Helpers.
Autumn was a season full of literary and musical accomplishments, election preparations, and a few Halloween festivities, among other interesting notes.
A good way to find out what’s important to CCV students? Put on a debate for their would-be legislators and give students the reins. Let them decide on the topics and let them design the questions. You’ll see students interacting with policy-makers face-to-face, directly engaging with the local issues they find most salient this election season.
