Dear Rubenstein Community,

Welcome to the end of the school year! We hope that everyone is getting a chance to enjoy this beautiful Vermont weather as exams and final projects wind down!

As our semester comes to a close, we wanted to reflect on some of the exciting work that we’ve accomplished! This semester, we held many community events to help bring the RSENR community together in our home base of Aiken, including the multicultural dinner, community lunches, and the Centennial Woods work day. In addition, we helped with professional development by holding many resume and cover letter workshops and assisting with the Student Advisory Board and Natural History and Field Ecology TA interviews. Lastly, we gave countless tours to visiting high schools, community partners, prospective/admitted students, and their families. Overall, we’ve had a super productive year, and we’re looking forward to developing and holding many more exciting events next semester!

Finally, we wanted to send a quick shout out to our graduating senior stewards and extend a welcome to the new members of our family. Natasha Lekach, John Butler, Teresa DiTore, and Brad Koontz, thank you for all of your hard work, dedication, and leadership this past year. You will be greatly missed, but we know you have exciting adventures ahead of you in life! Bonnie Ricord, Laura Kim, Jackie Cardoza, Katie Stoner, and Grant Troester, we are so excited to officially meet you and hear all of your exciting ideas next year! Welcome to the Rubenstein Steward family!

We hope you all have a great end of the semester! Enjoy the sunshine, and have a great summer!

Love,

The Rubenstein Stewards
