Why I like working in an academic setting

The energy that occurs on the College campus is uplifting and motivating. Working with the faculty and staff to assist students upon entering College and through to graduation . . . it's satisfying to see how students have developed and grown throughout their collegiate experience.

Favorite Book

Jane Eyre--one of the first novels I read in high school, and I've loved it ever since.

Favorite film/play/dance/exhibit

There's too much to choose from in this category! Suffice it to say that I will select the most recent exhibit I saw in our Burgdorff Gallery in the Everett Mansion--Alan Nyiri's exhibit of peacefully serene and yet stunning photographs of Vermont.

best part of being at svc

The students! And the faculty and staff are wonderful.
