Spring Bulletin Published
The spring issue of the Green Mountain College’s alumni magazine the Bulletin was in the mail last week. See the online version by clicking the icon at right. This issue focuses on GMC as an “early adapter” by providing undergraduate and graduate programs relevant to a changing world. There are in-depth features on the College’s agricultural programs and some extraordinary and generous gifts recently received by GMC.

2015 Reverie is Online
As of Thursday, May 7th, Green Mountain College’s literary and visual arts journal The Reverie, is officially launched for spring 2015. The “seamstress” group of undergraduates who threaded this issue together over the past two semesters is excited to be reaching a wider readership in this new volume (21) for three reasons.
Reason one to be thrilled: This year’s publication was open for submissions from not only current students, but also accepted contributions from faculty, staff, and alumni. The Reverie hopes to receive even more variety in submissions for next year’s volume.
Reason two for a required ruffling of feathers: What has traditionally only been an annual print publication now has an additional presence – online. This year’s editor, Bianca Zanella ‘15, envisions the new website, greenmtnreverie.com, to become a digital database for GMC’s art. Soon there will be more spoken word video recordings on the site, as well as occasional blog posts from editors, and new work! Zanella says, “The launch of an online accompaniment to the annual issue will hopefully curb our readers in the lull between print publications, and give more people the opportunity to get published, to have their voice heard.”
Reason three for eager enthusiasm: You can own your very own print copy of the magazine for free. All you have to do is stop by the display at the front entrance of Griswold Library to pick one up, or email firstname.lastname@example.org if none are available. Pick one up today, and absorb the stories, just like Aaron Witham, GMC’s sustainability director and contributor to this year’s journal, who said, “I really enjoyed reading it! The layout is nice, the selection is great, the art is stunning – just overall great job!”
