Land Use Committee makes tracks

The Long Range Land Use Committee ventured out on October 25th to explore some of WWC's newest acreage -- including the new dorm site. You can see the approximate path we took by clicking here. Be sure to select "satellite" and zoom all the way in to get the best imagery.

Geography Awareness Week is coming!

Mark your calendars....the official kickoff to the holiday season begins November 14 as we celebrate:

Geography Awareness Week!

Look for a GIS Lab open house, a film or two, maps galore, and lots of surprises...

More notes from a recent grad

Heidi Stucker, Class of 2005, sends this brief check-in from her new home in Massachusetts...

"As for what I am doing with my time...I am working as a housemate with a woman with OCD through an organization called Windhorse Associates. My general role is as a mentor in supporting her in her recovery. More specifically I am responsible for encouraging her to gain independence by taking responsibility for the household that we share. This work is part-time; I am currently looking for other activities to fill the extra time. So far I have discovered MudPie Potters in Leverett, just north of Northampton, a quaint backwoodsy studio open to individuals who are really into playing with clay. I am looking into renting some space from them in order to begin throwing again. There are also a number of CSAs in the area, which I hope I will be able to do a work trade with in the coming season for shares of food. I have been in Northampton for less than two weeks at this point, so I am still finding my footing; so far, however, I am really happy with what I have found."
