A letter from Vice President of Alumnae/i Affairs Jessica Rogers Greetings! I hope you enjoy this issue of our new and improved Nimbus! Many thanks to Alumnae/i Coordinator Sarah Thompson and Graphic Design Manager Brittany White for their hard work in taking your ideas and suggestions and incorpo rating them into our newsletter's new look. The College also recently launched its new website which includes a facelift for the Association and Foundation. NCAA's site can be found at ncf.edu/ alum. There will be more alumnae/i outcome stories featured on the entire college website as an answer to the call of those who are interested in knowing more about what life is like after New College. Please continue to share with us your updates as you never know when we may call you for an interview to include online! In November, the Association experienced a passing of the torch amongst our leadership. Cindy Hill has chaired the Association board for the past three years and through her leadership, along with the board of directors, the Association has maintained a strong and steady presence amongst the College and our alumnae/i base. The past three years have not been easy for anyone, as our country has endured the recession and fallout from state government issues nationwide. I have to thank all of our board 'cl New College Alumnae/i Association I nimbus members for their dedication and voluntarism to continue moving forward through the difficult times as New College charts the course for its future. Special thanks to Cindy for her spirit of op timism through the challenges and determination in seeing the Association through its many recent milestones and celebrations. Thank you to Robert Lincoln who has welcomed his new role as board chair and has hit the ground running in this capacity after 15 years of service on the association board. Robert co chaired the Clambake this fall, on campus, is serving on the Foundation's Gala Committee and will be leading the association through changes in its board nomination process. See more details on this in Robert's letter to alums on page 3. Susan Sapoznikoff has been named Vice-Chair of the Association and Bill Rosenberg accepted a second term as board Treasurer during the November Board of Directors meeting. We thank these board members for their continued service and leadership. I hope that you have made the decision to attend the Alumnae/i Reunion Weekend, February 9-12, 2012! We have many fun events planned and even a few "surprises", of which you should have already received information in the mail. We will have plenty of opportunities for you to reconnect with each other. You will also have the ability to make new connections with current students and faculty that will be participating in mini-classes and other events throughout the weekend. See pages 12 and 13 and visit our website for more details. All the best to you and yours for a holiday season filled with joy, peace and special memories. I look forward to seeing you in February! -Jessica

Ne-ws fro01 the NCAA Board of Directors On November 5, the New College Alurnnae/i Assocation Board of Directors approved by-law changes to move from an elected board to an appointed board of at least twelve and up to fifteen directors. More details about the appointment procedures and time lines will be announced soon on the NCAA website. The Board is aware that this may not be a popular decision. I want to share some of the background and logic behind this change, and communicate the commitment of the Board to ensure that the voice of our alumni body will be better heard by this change. Previously, the Board was made up of ten elected directors, who also could appoint up to eight additional directors. Elections for three year terms were held in two cycles (for five each) so there would be two years of elections and then an "off year." Self-nominations were solicited in the winter Nimbus, candidate profiles were published in the spring Nimbus and elections were held over the summer. In recent years, we have had from seven to eleven candidates, but the turn out has been dismal. Just 226 alums voted in 2009 and only 168 participated in 2010. Prior to the last elections, the Board announced that if participation did not rise, we would move to an appointed board. Participation did not rise -in fact it was lower. The election process generated several negative dynamics. First and foremost, it has been difficult to get a Board that is both representative of the demographics of the alurnnae/i body and with the skills/ experience needed on the Board. For reasons that are not all bad, the Board is heavy on lawyers, on graduates from the 80s/90s, and on people who live in Sarasota. Second, the elections process has excluded qualified and excited alumnaeji. We have had several candidates with great potential and energy who did not get elected and would not accept appointments because they felt the "voice" of the alurnnae/i had spoken against their service. With a growing base, limited avenues for "campaigning," and poor participation, the election process has proved to be a poor reflection of the will of the alumnae/i body. The decision to move to an appointed Board was not unanimous. The chief concerns were a loss of trust and commitment from the alumnaeji and the risk that a "bad Board" would be appointed with no means to remove them by popular vote. The entire Board takes these concerns seriously. In fact, this change has been discussed for at least ten years and probably would have occurred four years ago except for the Board's concerns about these issues. So I want to express to you the Board's commitment to transparent appointment pro cess. Nominations will be open. The application form will be pub lished, as will a list of the qualifications that are being sought at any given time. The Governance Committee recommendations on candidates will be made available prior to the Board's consideration. The votes on candidates will be reported. I also will commit that we will revisit this issue in two years. If you are interested in serving, please submit an application. If you have questions, please ask. And, as always, thank you for your continued support for New College. Rob Lincoln '76 NCAA Board Chair www.ncf.edu/alum

eAr of T e1n Mary Cox '76 talks about making the dramatic career switch from economic forecaster to artist and offers advice to others looking to break into the art scene. Interview by: Sarah Thompson '06 Tell m a littl hit bo f 0 If. 0 My family moved around so much that it's hard to say where I'm "from." I attended elementary and high school (but not middle school) in Bethesda, Maryland. My family has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since the late 1970s. I found out about New College doing research on colleges. II l e a fac ou abo that )O 1 ar Cox I was very interested in NC's non-traditional program: the contract system, the independent study and the evaluations instead of grades. Also, I was looking for a school with no fraternities, sororities or swimming team. (I needed to make a break from a ten-year swimming ca reer.) After graduation I took a year off and lived in the Bay Area. I then went to Columbia Uni versity's School of International and Public Af fairs, where I concentrated in International Finance. My first job was with a small company called Business International, doing economic forecasting. Obama worked there right after I left!

I burned out on that job and finally, when I was pregnant with my first child, I convinced my husband, who is Greek, to try living in Greece, as an adventure. hat do }OU feel ate one of tl e a anlage am IH I have lived in Brazil, Puerto Rico, and France, so Greece was not my first experience living abroad. It's fun to see how other parts of the world work-but it can get tiring when the place is as dysfunctional as Greece. Every place has its pluses and minuses. I do wish I wasn't quite so far from family and friends in San Francisco. The career change carne after moving here. I started painting while pregnant with my second child, and became addicted. I had started painting in high school, and took a few classes at New College, and even some Saturday-morning classes in New York, but I didn't think of painting as a career possibility until the late 90s. I studied with Open College of the Arts in the UK, and finally decided to go for a Master's in 2005. (Completed in 2009.) Talk to me abo 1 our t le of mi ed wdia. at .., Back in the 70s and 80s, artists were still trying to have a "signature style", a uniform product, as it were. It was frowned upon to go from abstract to figurative and vice versa. I find that too constricting. I like to do narrative work, but often there is more than one story, or there are multiple points of view, and combining different media helps relay that idea. I guess the appealing thing about mixed media is it's ability to convey layers of meaning in the work. Top left: Mary's piece entitled "Thesseion". Bottom right: "Peristeri." My work is very much photography based, and I try to have a camera with me (or at least a cellphone camera) so that I can catch something when I see it. The sudden mushrooming of the immigrant population in Athens was kind of exciting be-"I like to do narrative work, but often there is more than one story, or there are mul tiple points of view, and combining different media helps relay that idea." cause it happened so fast. Downtown Athens went from being extremely homogeneous to multicultural in the space of five years. Following these changes got me interested in immigration issues such as political asylum and refugees. Usually I start with photographs, which get flattened as I do a sort of collaging of various elements, while combining other elements such as repetitive motifs. I usually paint figures in oil, in as much of a photo-real style as I can muster. Generally the subject that inspires me is change. The bicycle series is also about Continued on page 15 change, about the need to move away from petroleum and the need to slow down generally. For Americans and Europeans, the bikes might seem like a no brainer, but we here in Athens still have no bike lanes, and only recently achieved access for bikes on the metro. ........................................................................................................ www.ncf.edu/alun1

AlumiD Card Over the past year, the campus community has led discussions about a guest and alumnaeji visitation policy. The NCAA board was invited to provide input in these discussions and additional input was sought from students, faculty, and staff. What has evolved from these thoughtful meetings is the alurnnaeji visitation and access guidelines, which will soon be found on our website. In addition, the NCAA will be offering an alurnnae/i ID card. Our student body has grown in size over the years and with the addition of new students it has become more and more difficult to recognize alums when they are on campus. The ID card is one way to combat this issue. The card also offers alums benefits such as use of the library, access to the fitness center, a 10% discount at the bookstore and more. We're working with local business now to secure discounts at local restaurants, hotels, and retail establishments for alums who show their ID card. The card will cost $10 with a $5 replacement fee. This is to ensure we do not lose money from printing, mailing, and laminating costs. You may contact Alum Coordinator Sarah Thompson at sthompson@ncf.edu or 941-487-4676 in order to purchase a card. www.ncf.edu/alum ':J

[NCSA Stories] A note froiD NCSA Archivist Harrison Sherwin Hey alums, I was asked to write an article from the NCSA for the Nimbus. As such, I did what any Archivist does: I dove in to old documents to see for whom exactly I was writing. First, you all are some crazy folks. Second, we are all very simi lar. I read some old issues of the Organ, Catalyst, Oracle, and Tangent for research and read articles knocking the Cold War and the student government entities from the time and chuckled as I was reminded of the current students speaking against student government. I read about the Trustee Chairman Dort signing the College over to the State University System in order to protect the continuity of the school and the split from University of South Florida ten years ago, but more importantly I read about your reactions to these events. I read about the protests, the debates, the forums, and the action taken. I read about cuts in financial aid from the 80s and immediately thought about the cuts in my own student aid. I looked at Fact Books about the college from its inception and gawked that students then were paying less than half of what I am now as an in-state student. I gawked even more realizing that then New College was a private institution and now we're supposedly getting state funds to subsidize our education. I read about your protests against the Sarasota Airport Authority building a road through a grove of trees on the North end of the Pei Campus and 43 students getting arrested for these demonstrations. I read about your fighting for extended library hours during finals and then I thought about our current Vice-PresiNew College Alumnae/i Association 1 nimbus dent of Academic Affairs implementing that this calendar year. More importantly, I read about a planned party to celebrate your victory against the library, canceled because you needed to spend more time studying. I read about the twenty second graduating class being told to choose paths you love rather than what will make you the most money. I read and I realized while situations and the people involved may have changed over the years, as New College students we still aggressively reach for our goals and protect what we value. I shudder at the thought of this awe-inspiring institution no longer existing. I cringe at the thought of willing students not being able come to this place and learning how to think out-of-the-box and be independent in the world. I love this college because we don't just learn biochemistry, public pol icy, or art history, but we learn how to learn and we learn how to think. I love that the alurnnae/i from this college support the current students so much and have inspired me and my peers to do the same. Thank you. Harrison C. Sherwin NCSA Archivist .: ............. ............ ./ ............ ..

Most of all, I enjoyed the parents' enthusiasm for New College. It was obvious the parents were excited to be on a learning journey along with their students." Tristan Zucker '09 "At the alum panel my first year, I connected with panelist John Cranor who has become a wonderful personal mentor. His words and those of all the participants every year have shown me how a New College alum can and will succeed in the real world (and what to do while at New College to make sure that happens)." r----------------------, I Want to help your alma mater?

e alums I bo t th 1 Ilene Gillispie is a fourth-year student at New College, where she has spent most of her time studying the world's religions. Her focus is Indian religions, particularly Hinduism and Sikhism. Ilene is currently writing her thesis about the role of women in the Sikh religion, and plans to travel to India in January (with the help of a Student Research and Travel Grant funded by the Alumni Association) to finish up some thesis research at an interfaith ashram in New Delhi. She studied abroad in Spring 2011 at Madras University in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, where she wore saris every day, ate rice for every meal, and traveled to see some of India's most historic and beautiful Hindu sights. In her free time, she volunteers at an acupuncture clinic in Sarasota, facilitates spiritual groups on and off campus, and leads group trips to a local Sikh temple. She also plays kirtan (Indian devotional music). Ilene plans to attend seminary after graduating from New College, with the goals of leading Unitarian Universalist congregations as a minister and serving others through hospital chaplaincy and prison ministry. Winn Hasalom is set to graduate from New College in May 2012 with a BA in Psychology. His thesis, centralized around sarcasm, is reflexive of his spirit, as an individual who never forgets that sometimes, you just have to have fun. An artist, iconoclast, and dreamer, Winn is mspired by the shining light of the soul in everyone; his passion fueled by the sacredness of his love for friends and family. When not working on his academics, Winn can typically be found dancing about in (and especially outside) of the studio. He believes that there is alJV New College Alumnae/i Association I nimbus ................................................................................ ..

ways a good reason to dance, at any given time (even when there isn't one!) and advocates the healing power of dance movement therapy. A performer since the day he was born, Winn is most at home in the spotlight. Driven by the discrete, intimate experience shared with an audience, he is known for his signature style of performance that has evolved over his time at New College. Knowing that this chapter of his journey is soon to close, he leaves with a smile saying, "If I have inspired just one person here, then it was a success. I am blessed to have this experience, and forever grateful to the spirit of New College, and its community, for accepting and supporting me on my journey." Jakilah Mason is fourth year student with a joint disciplinary area of concentration in Music and English. In the summer of 2011 J akilah worked as a Fund Development intern for CORE, a contemporary dance company in Atlanta, Georgia, where she got first hand experience working in the non-profit world. She intends to go to graduate school to study ethnomusicology or musicology, with particular inter-ests in popular music, feminist and queer theory, and twentieth century literature and music. Among her fa vorite things are hip-hop, feminism, punk music, and cheese. Among her favorite things to hate are soap operas, math, and oatmeal. Emile Mausner is a fourth-year Humanities AOC currently writing an interdisciplinary thesis on issues of border ambiguity in various postmodernist texts. Additionally, Emile has worked two years for New Col lege's Writing Resource Center as a Student Writing Assistant, an active listener for whom impartial friendliness and intellectual respect towards others are crucial. Thus exposed to the necessity of negotiation in interpersonal spaces, Emilelikewise strives in academics to find meaning in between, in exchange, in conversation; they find that the most expressive or most novel realizations are produced by exploration among sets of terminologies and perspectives otherwise conceived as autonomous. Emile intends to continue their education in some form of graduate study and eventually enjoy a teaching position. *Emile uses non-gendered pronouns. www.ncf.edu/alum

[Chapters] On October 29th, amidst an unseasonable snowstorm, 42 alums and emeriti faculty braved the weather and joined us in Washington DC for an alumnaeji chapter event. The event was hosted by David Lipsey '72 and his wife Dianne Lipsey at the historic Sewall-Belmont house, a corner stone of the suffragette movement. The event featured a panel discussion on gender and diver sity. Panelists included: New College Gender Studies Program Director and Professor of French Amy Reid, White House Correspondent Alexis Simendinger '76, and New College Associate Provost Ray Burgman '92. All three of these successful women discussed their tips and strategies on how to combat the occasionally male-dominated workplace. They also highlighted New College's efforts to expose students to issues of gender and diversity. Below, please read one portion of Alexis Simendinger's speech from DC where she discusses her networking tips. This is a skill she believes many women fall behind in compared to their male peers. 1. Build your rolodex early and keep it up in good times. Remember that there are only 6 degrees of separation. Don't be afraid to call on family, friends, colleagues, professors, New College alums, and anyone else you may meet at work, in graduate school, or at conferences. 2. Social networking is okay, but you need to go beyond an occasional facebook wall post. Drop names and solicit information through one-on-one meetings or phone calls with the contact. Treat the contact as an expert. Be charming but assertive in your interactions. 3. Do your homework and ask for help. You absolutely must do some research on those with whom you network to better achieve your goal. 4. Anticipate openings in the conversation and steer towards them. Consider where you want to be and with whom you want to work and aim to make it happen. 5. Pick a mentor. Don't wait for a mentor to pick you. Figure out what it is you want from your mentor. Is it advice? Greater expertise? A sounding board? Contacts? A tug up the ladder? If you know what you want out of the relationship you can better tailor it to your specific needs. 6. Don't assume others know what you're doing or accomplishing. Tell them your qualifications and successes.

washington, DC "The true gift of New College to their alums is ca maraderie. Part of the quintessential New College experience is knowing that you can always find like minded individuals who emich your path to success or offer support in moments of defeat. Spending time with alumni in DC and having the opportunity to converse with them about our mutual love of New College is more refreshing than any other experience I've had this year. To know that interests in New Col lege extend beyond campus living confirms my belief that education is not limited to the time you spend in the classroom. Rather, it is part of a daily routine to remain informed and maintain a continued apprecia tion for knowledge. I made many friends that night, several of which being alumni who will help m e with my thesis studies in Marine Ecology. The endless love of New College that I felt that night in DC still reso-... :ne.!es with me, and I use that feeling as encourage menti:o,continue my thesis work off-campus." .... -Courtney Smith '08,' .... .... .... .... .... .... .... .... ...

[special feature] Engaging Students in Diversity This year, the New College community has engaged in talks focused on improving campus diversity. As one part of these efforts, the Southern Poverty Law Center outreach director Lecia Brooks was invited to speak to students about racial issues and the importance of tolerance. Written by: Sarah Thompson On November 2, 2011, Lecia Brooks, the outreach director of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SLPC), came to New College to give a lecture on campus racial issues. The SLPC is a nonprofit civil rights organization which is inter nationally known for tracking and exposing the activities of hate groups. The SLPC's innovative Teaching Tolerance program produces and dis tributes documentary films, books, lesson plans and other materials that promote tolerance and respect in our nation's schools. Brooks began her first lecture at New College by discussing some of what the SLPC does. She showcased a hate map, illustrating the number of active hate groups around the country. Florida is home to 49. It ranks third among the states with most active hate groups after California, 68, and Texas, 59. Brooks also discussed individual court cases on which the SLPC has offered their services. This included an impending case in which immigrant workers were hired to repair storm-damaged apartments in New Orleans. Allegedly, these workers were routinely cheat ed out of wages and endured forced labor while living in crowded and di lapidated em ployer-provided housing. Brooks also discussed a case the SLPC supported in the 1980s in which a man was lynched by a white supremacist hate group. Brooks' SLPC tales provided a national con text to what would become a discussion of indi vidual and campus-wide racial issues. After the presentation, Brooks lead a group exercise in which she read a statement and members of the group were required to stand if the question correctly corresponded to their experience. Her queries included: "My race or ethnicity is an integral part of my identity" and "I have experienced racial discrimination or intoler ance." The group was then split into pairs and asked to discuss what patterns emerged among those who stood or sat for various questions and to describe a personal story of their first memory of race. After this pairs exercise, a larger discussion was led about racial issues among the more than 50 students that attended. Brooks excelled at getting the often hyper-intellectual New College students to discuss the emotional and personal affect of race on their lives. Third-year New College student Claire Cominskey commented that the talk was effec tive at "creating a safe space for students while still being constructive." Claire hopes this talk will lead to more frequent discussions about diversity that engage the whole campus com munity. New College may be on its way with a follow up discussion hosted one week later by the pluralism committee that was, by all reports, very well-attended.

New Academic Center Earns LEED Certification The U.S. Green Building Council (USG BC) has awarded New College of Florida's new Academic Center with Gold LEED certification for a number of environmentally-friendly features. The USG BC awards point values based on sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation in design. At the New College Academic Center: Toilets flush using residual rainwater from the roof and A/C condensate. Specially designed tanks built-in under the adjoining Koski Plaza collect storm water. Special C02 room sensors measure air quality and adjust the A/C system accordingly. High-efficiency windows let in natural light. Pavers and high reflective roofing materials reflect sunshine. More than 85 percent of construction site debris was recycled. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationallyrecognized green building certification system that was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED promotes sustainable building and development practices through a suite of rating systems that recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance. New College Student Receives LeRoy Collins Distinguished Alumni Rising Star Award New College of Florida student Jodi Johnson received the LeRoy Collins Distinguished Alumni Rising Star Award during the Association of Florida Colleges Presidential Gala Dinner in Naples, Fla., on October 27.

After being a stay-at-home mom, she was inspired to continue her higher education as a role model for her teenage son. At SCF, Johnson developed her leadership skills as president of Phi Theta Kappa, organizing scholarship workshops and participating in service projects. She also cofounded the Awareness Initiative Program at SCF Venice, designed to raise awareness about drug and alcohol dependence. Johnson was one of only 50 college students nationwide to be named a Coca-Cola Academic Team Gold Scholar, and her name appeared in the April 11 special edition of USA Today. After finishing her second bachelor's degree at New College, Johnson plans to attend graduate school and work in a musewn hist oncal society or nonprofit org amzation focused on humanitarian aid. The LeRoy Collins Distinguished Alumni Awards were created to honor distinguished alumni from Florida community colleges for the substantial contributions they have made to their college, community, state or nation. The award was named in honor of LeRoy Collins, former governor of Florida, whose leadership was instrumental in establishing a community college system for the state. New College dedicates the newly-named Koski Plaza New College dedicated the plaza adjacent to its new Academic Center. The Koski Plaza recognizes a generous gift of $1 million from Beverly Koski and her late husband, Robert, co-founder of Sun Hydraulics. The gift will be used to construct a bell tower in the section of the plaza adjacent to the Jane Bancroft Cook Library on Bay Shore Road. The rest of the gift will be used to fund a variety of academic priorities at New College "In Beverly Koski's gift, we celebrate the tradition of giving by generous donors, which runs in the DNA of our institution, back to its private days" President Mike Michalson stated in his opening remarks. Beverly Koski, one of Sarasota's leading philanthropists and community leaders, has been active at New College for much of its fifty-year history, serving for many years as a leader of the New College Library Association (NCLA). "New College is a special place," said Koski. "It's a place where students can come and design their own program under a mentor and the leadership of a fabulous staff. I am very proud to be a part of the New College tradition. It pleases me to think of the faculty, and students gathering in this plaza to discuss the topics of the day and the challenges before them." In the College's early years, the Koski's made one of the first large gifts to the library, and the Koski Core Collection Fund continues to help acquire new books and resources, helping make the Cook Library one of Southwest Florida's most important public-accessible research libraries. ................. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www.ncf.edu/alum rn

New College really changed the trajectory of my life. I never would have gone to graduate school had it not been for my fantastic mentor, Penny Rosel, who encouraged me and pushed me through my thesis project (which, when I looked back on it a few years ago, was better than most of the M A. theses my students are writing today!) I remember asking her "What's graduate school?" when she mentioned perhaps I should think about continuing my studies. I came from a working class neighborhood in Dallas, so there weren' t a lot of people around me who had much higher education. The New College learning environment was extraordinary -when I got to the University of Wisconsin for my Ph.D. pro gram, they didn' t know what to do with me. I had already read all the books and done all the work at New College they typically asked first year students to do. So they put me in advanced seminars right away! The freedom to delve into the subjects that interested me, the encouragement to ask novel questions and work with original data all that came from New College but proved to be essential in succeeding as an academic researcher. www.ncf.edu/alum
