Things That Happened, Things To Do: Week of September 3
Summer is over and fall is here, at least according to the academic calendar. Also returning: Our regular recap of goings on at the College and a look ahead to events on the horizon. As always, we hope to call your attention to items that captured ours and alert you to events that you won’t want to miss. If you have a news item that you think we’d be interested in, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Glancing backward a few weeks, Language Schools graduates received sound advice from a former ambassador before heading out into the world; up on the mountain, BLSE grads rubbed elbows with a Pulitzer Prize winner.
- The Class of 2016 has arrived on campus, while out in California, the Monterey Institute of International Studies has welcomed the largest incoming class in its 50+ year history.
- Did you hear? There’s a presidential election going on. What can we offer that the cable talking heads and chattering Twitterers can’t? A non-partisan take on the state of the race.
- The seventh annual Kelly Brush Century Ride takes place here in Addison County on Saturday, September 8th.
- 51 Main will be hopping this weekend: Verbal Onslaught on Thursday, jazz on Friday, and a Vermont favorite—Split Tongue Crow—on Saturday.
- And while classes don’t start until Monday the 10th, a host of Panther sports teams kick-off the fall season this weekend. You can find schedules for all of the teams here, or, if you can’t make it back to campus, you can catch much of the action live and online, thanks to the College’s new partnership with the Northeast Sports Network.
