Why did you choose Hobart and William Smith Colleges? Happily, HWS accepted me. Beyond that, I wanted a small liberal arts college with a small student to faculty ratio.
How do you stay connected to the Colleges? I participate in Annual Giving, attend reunions, and maintain contact with a few classmates.
What makes the Colleges special? During President Mark D. Gearan’s tenure and with obvious support from enlightened Boards, the resurgence of HWS as a superior national liberal arts school allows the Colleges to offer a wonderful, broad educational experience to young people from many walks of life.
Why do you give back to HWS? Our children need the higher education liberal arts option offered by HWS.
What are your goals as a Regional Network volunteer? To improve awareness of HWS activities and to encourage greater alumni and alumnae participation in regional and college events.
What advice would you give to an incoming or current HWS student? Participate - don’t be a bystander. Let your mind be expansive, explore, discover, fail (it’s okay; just pick yourself up), and learn to think and question. Be critical.
