Congratulations, UVM Graduates!

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

Congratulations to all of the University of Vermont students who will be graduating this weekend at UVM's 207th Commencement Ceremonies.

This year's commencement speaker will be Billie Jean King, the tennis legend and adovocate for women's equal participation in sports and society. King is probably most famous for routing former men's Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs in three straight sets, in the 1973 "Battle of the Sexes." No doubt, she will inspire graduates to push past obstacles, challenge the status quo, and reach for their dreams.

Champlain College graduates already threw up their caps on May 7. Burlington College on May 14.

Hats off to our 2011 graduates!

UVM Landscape Change Program

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS
Here is a website I recently discovered and found of interest, http://www.uvm.edu/perkins/landscape/. It is The University of Vermont's Landscape Change Program, an online archive of historic Vermont photos. Many of photos are from the 1800’s and compared side by side with photos from today.
 
One that I found particularly interesting is this 1859 photo of Burlington's City Hall Park taken from the Vermont House. It’s very interesting to see the changes that have taken place in the last 150 years.
 
I hope you enjoy this website as much as I did. If you find anything of particular interest please share by adding a comment at the end of this blog post.
 
-Nancy
