"The Stream" Running Strong
The first issue of The Mountaineer, the Green Mountain College student newspaper, appeared in the 1937-38 school year. The paper continues to be published today, making it one of the most venerable institutions on campus. Trang Cao ’15, an international student from Hanoi, Vietnam, hopes that "The Stream," a new student-run video channel, will have the same longevity and impact.

“Traditional print media serves a purpose, but there is huge room for growth in broadcast on campus,” said Trang. She believes emerging media including video, sound, graphic design, and social networking are uniquely suited to cover important stories while capturing the energetic vibe of the campus. more...



Athletics Hosts Annual Awards Ceremony
Green Mountain College hosted its annual athletic awards ceremony last Wednesday, bringing the 2012-2013 athletic year to a close. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) presented its Senior Student-Athlete Awards to Chelsea Paul ‘12 and Andrew O’Neill.

Casey McGill ‘12 and Chris Donovan ‘12 were awarded the Student-Athlete Service Award, given annually to a senior or junior woman and man who have demonstrated superior citizenship and ethical conduct on and off the playing fields.

The evening was capped off with the presentation of the male and female James M. Pollock “Eagle” Awards. This year’s male recipient went to Chris Gaskin ‘12 for his four-year contributions to the soccer program. Chelsea Paul was the female recipient for her achievements in basketball and softball.

For a complete list of athletic awards see the GMC athletics website.



Barnum Exhibit Showcased “Double Design”
By Laura Huley '13
Ian Barnum ‘13 came from Norwood, N.J. on a college tour several years ago. With his parents, Ian decided on a set of criteria for establishing whether or not a college was ideal.

“We were looking for some place that was small and a little more communicative,” Ian stated.

GMC fit the bill, and the fact that the area was mostly quiet and peaceful was even more of an incentive to enroll.

Originally planning to graduate with a BA, Ian enrolled in several art classes, including analog photography and printmaking. For him, these classes were so rewarding that he decided to switch over to a BFA in art.

“In high school I took some art classes and did some drawing, but I never thought about pursuing it in college. My interest in art is what pulled me in,” he explained. more...



ANNOUNCEMENTS

Green Move Out
As you leave the residence halls and get rid of your unwanted belongings, please bring them all to the first floor lounge in your building (except in Ames, where the drop-off location is in the basement by the handicap door). Please stack the items in the proper categories and keep in mind that anything you leave there will be donated to others. Doing this is a huge help to the limited staff that are in charge of cleaning up these items.

Today, Tuesday, and Wednesday, from 12 - 2 p.m., all students, staff, and faculty are invited to “shop” for free in the clearly marked Green Move Out drop off locations in the residence hall lounges. People not affiliated with the College are not invited to this event because of security issues last year. Folks from the outside community were invited to the yard sale on Sunday.

Please contact sustainability coordinator Aaron Witham with any questions
