Hey! I'm Liz Stahle, the new Work Study in Operations. I'm from Rutland, VT and attended high school at Rutland High School. I also attended the CCV in Rutland for a Semester. In my free time I enjoy painting, dancing, and reading. I moved to Burlington in June and love it here. I'm hoping to go into some kind of Environmental Studies, but I'm trying to complete some more of my core requirements before deciding on a major. This is my second semester at CCV, and I am really enjoying it so far. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you. See you around!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a reality... especially to the admissions counselors who traveled from far distances to speak with CCV students. Here are a few images from the event:

1. Today's Times-Argus editorial takes the form of thumbs-up/thumbs-down
week in review. This morning’s editorial includes CCV’s return to Montpelier as a thumbs up item. Click here for the entire article.
“Good news this week that the Community College of Vermont will purchase the Woodbury College campus on Elm Street and move more than 30 administrative jobs back to Montpelier. It was disconcerting to learn of Woodbury's plans to merge with Champlain College and essentially move to Burlington, not only because of worries the building would sit empty, but also because of the loss of an important higher education component of Montpelier's economy and student opportunity. Moving CCV's administration and eventually its classes into the Elm Street campus guarantees a good use of the Woodbury facility that will benefit the central Vermont region. This is a return home for CCV, which had been headquartered in Montpelier until moving to Waterbury in 1985. Welcome back.”

Powers began working with the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf in the Spring of 2008 and now volunteers 4-5 mornings a week at the organization’s warehouse and grocery distribution location. “My motivation to contact the Food Shelf came from my brother-in-law, who, for as long as I have known him, has never wanted a gift for Christmas. The only thing he has ever requested is that I volunteer my time,” said Powers. “Wanting to follow through on telling him that I would, I contacted the closest food shelf and signed up for a morning of service. After that, it wasn’t difficult to go back again and again and again.”
Letters of recommendation in support of Powers’ Vermont Student Citizen Award application were sent in by representatives of the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf and CCV, including the college’s provost, Joyce Judy. “That she has found time to volunteer a large amount of her time to our community and student body reflects on Kelsi’s character and commitment to service,” said Judy. “I am proud of the work she has done, and proud that we can claim her as a CCV student.”
Created by The Vermont Teddy Bear Company in cooperation with Vermont Campus Compact, Vermont Higher Education Council, and Vermont Life Magazine, the Vermont Student Citizen Award recognizes the outstanding community service contributions Vermont college students make in the community to nonprofit groups and civic organizations. The award carries a reward of $1,000 to the student, a corporate gift of $1,000 to the nonprofit organization where the student serves, and a gift of $1,000 to the institution the student attends. The winner will be announced later in November. Way to go Kelsi! Good luck.

CCV will take possession of the property at the end of 2008. In time, this location will house both CCV’s central Vermont academic site, currently located at the Vermont College of the Fine Arts, and our administrative functions that are currently located in Waterbury. The consolidated location will be less expensive to the College and, therefore, its students than the projected costs of continuing current leases. This co-location will happen in phases in order to accommodate a lease obligation at VCFA and to plan and construct an additional classroom building at the new location. Phase one will be to move what is currently located at Wasson Hall and the Carriage House locations in Waterbury to Montpelier by the end of June.

On this historic occasion, a few hopes for President-elect Obama:
I hope he does a good job. I hope America takes this as a wake up call!
Peace. A sturdy economy. An America to be proud of again. No more fear.
I would like to see proof within the next few years that once I graduate college and start the process of home ownership, Obama will be focused on rebuilding the housing market to help my generation and middle class families.
I hope for: change, peace (no more war in Iraq), life, better spending, environmental changes – turn into a greener country, opportunity. I hope Obama is able to do all he’s spoken about. He’s amazing, and I can’t wait to see where our country goes.
I hope he helps out the economy. I also hope he starts to pull troops out of Iraq.
I am hopeful that this election sets a precedent for the youth of this country to have a continuing interest in politics. Ever since I registered to vote in 2003, I have watched teachers, elders, and public service announcements plead for the youth vote. I believe that youth involvement in campaigning and voter turnout was unprecedented in this election. In my opinion, a knowledgeable youth can help shape a better future and a better country. Obama truly spoke to and for the younger generations in America. I hope that this generation continues to have faith in their country and that future generations feel the same sense of pride. If you are engaged and passionate about a candidate, go out and do something about it. Use this election as an example of the power of your voice.
More speeches that bring tears of joy to our eyes. Intelligence, wisdom, kindness.

By experiencing the architecture and artifacts of many faiths, walking in the footsteps of the Nazi invasion of Amsterdam, and having access to the Eastern religious houses of worship of immigrant populations, students will have a unique opportunity to contrast a European perspective on religion and society with common American views. They will also be able to experience the authentic foods associated with the religions and cultures, as Amsterdam is home to Hindu, Sikh, Chinese, Indonesian, kosher Jewish, Persian and African restaurants.
Highlights of the time in The Netherlands include:
- Visits to the Museum Amstelkring, the Jewish Historical Museum, the Bijbels Museum, and the Rijksmuseum
- Visits to the first genuine Chinese Buddhist temple in Western Europe as well as to the Radha Krishna Mandir Hindu Temple
- A walking tour of Amsterdam and visit to the Anne Frank Huis
- A day trip to the Islamic University of Rotterdam
The course fee of $3197 includes group flight to and from Boston, breakfasts and some lunches, lodging, transportation, and entry fees.
