new COLLeGe nimBUS Volume 9, Number 1 Fall/Winter 1992 New Colleagues Experience pairs with enthusiasm when student interns for alum. by Heruy Smyth For about sixty days this past summer Bonnie Gorla, a New College student in her last year, was my intern She is the first intern I ever hired as well as the fust intern hired by our office. As a middle manager in an office with a hiring freeze, an intern was a luxury I did not expect. Neverthe less, when I received Bonnie's letter and reswne in late April, I saw an answer to my area's persistent problem of too few resources and too many projects On paper, Bonnie was not very impressive Her reswne was a dis aster, and her cover letter was unfocused and did little to recommend her. On the telephone with her, however, I recognized in her voice the hunger I remembered as a student long on ambition but short on experience I called her academic advisor and liked what I heard there as well. I pitched the idea of using an intern to ftll the gaps in my area to my boss as well as our regional manager They liked the idea, espe cially in light of the work assisting Bonnie in the preparation of her Continued on page 2 Alumna eli ranks grew by 107 in May as New College graduated its 26th class.

Evens, and Carla Eastis, are pic tured above. by Bonnie Gorla T Z I decided to do an internship Y Y the summer, I researched how other people had set up internships in the past. During my search, I came into contact with the New College alwnnae/i coordinator In our meeting, I explained that I would be in New York City during the summer and would be interested in getting some "real world" experience in eco nomics. Carol Ann Wilkinson proceeded to compile a list of names, phone nwnbers and addresses of alumnae/i who were in the New York City area and open to estab lishing internships for New College stu dents With the list in hand, I called the alwnnae/i and sent them each a reswne. A week later, I received a call from Henry Smyth of Coutts & Co. in New York We discussed Coutts & Co., a private investment bank, and the type of work they engage in When I arrived in New York, I met with Mr. Smyth. He interviewed me and then gave me some reading material to familiarize me with the banking world As an introduction to the investment aspect of this bank, I began reading the Wall Street Journal Some of the projects I worked on for Coutts & Co. dealt with the Latin American Money Market Fund that they are developing. I met with some representatives from aleading Mexican investment fum to create a model portfolio for the fund. In addition, I constructed a Lotus-based matrix to analyze this fund's competitiveness with other Latin American funds. I also began organizing the fund's Risk Factors sec tion. During my seven weeks with Coutts & Co., I was able to get a flavor of the midtown Manhattan business world. I con ducted some research for my thesis Continued on page 2


A He I p in g Hand Continued from page 1 Smyth thesis. 1 invited Bonnie in for an mterview and spent a long time talking with her about her work at New College, job experience and in Latin America. On the latter pomt there wasn't much. No Spanish, no Portuguese, and not much familiarity with Latin America beyond some course work in economic develop ment. But I liked her. I liked her moti vation and I'm-New-College-and-cantherefore-do-anything attitude. She of course had no idea what she was in for. A word about our work. I'm in the Latin American Structured Finance Department of Coutts and Company AG, a global private bank headquar tered in Zurich and a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Westminster Bank Pic, a large UK banking group. Basically, what I do is come up with Latin American products and services to sell our private banking clients, and then go out and sell them. Our clients include individuals, corporations, investment managers and offshore funds. While different, they all have one thing in common: they're either moving money into or out of Latin America. We either have a structure for them or we create one. For some time we had planned to launch a Latin America Money Market Fund for our clients but had been frustrated by overriding priorities. I convinced my boss we could use Bonnie to do a lot of the legwork and re search necessary to put this fund Internship Possibilities? Did the thought, "I could do something like that," cross your mind while reading Henry's and Bonnie's descriptions? If so, send information (about your organi111tion, the type of work available for an intern, academic areas which might ap ply, preferred times of year, etc.) to the alumnae/i office. We'll make sure the infonnation is available to students and help you get in touch.

I gave her all the Latin American fund literature I could lay my hands on Henry Smyth '76 is an investment banker at Coutts & Co. in New York. (probably twenty pounds worth), led her through one example, and told her to start reading. We needed to do a competitive analysis as part of our fund proposal to senior management and Bonnie was going to do it. In all, I suppose she went through about thirty fund prospectuses m the next three weeks, pulling out material for her analysis and loading it into the spread sheet. All this was done against the backdrop of endless grunt work-making copies, answering telephones, sending faxes, writing and rewriting memos -you get the idea. The result was exactly what we needed, on time and under budget. In the midst of all the projects and grunt work, Bonnie was also doing a lot of reading in her area of interest. In the process, she began to focus on po tential thesis topics. Her interest in economic stabilization policies in Latin America led her to recent privati zation of state enterprises, specifically in the telecommunications sector. I gave her stacks of material on the sub-Gorla using the materials in the bank. I was able to talk with people from other areas of the bank to gain a broader understanding of how investment banks are run. In addition, I attended several business meetings and visited the main branch ofNational Westminster Bank to see how they operate. Working with Coutts & Co. has rewarding. It has given me expenence in the banking world, as well as pro vided me with current research rial on Latin America for my thesis. I found my internship to be an invalu able experience, and I hope other alumni and students will take advan tage of this great opportunity. Bonnie Gorla is busy finishing her thesis and other requirements for graduation from New College in May 1993.


Opportunity Knocks ... Two Ways New College's Center for Service Learning offers students a chance to combine academic endeavors with community service. by Juliana Pare The Center for Service learning is a prime example the kind of the op portunity that New College is best at providing. As a small school it may not have the financial base necessary to present its students with ready made, easy-to-tap-into opportunities. What New College does offer is the flexibility for students to tum their en ergies and passions toward the goal of creating opportunities for them selves and others. Birthed out of a January 1990 Inde pendent Study Project by Steve Hen ley '87, the Center for Service Learning (CSL) was created to en courage and help students combine theoretical exploration, practical field work and community service. In the past year, CSL has separated into two overlapping areas: day-long volunteer projects and semester-long academic activities in which service to an organization is an integral part of study. Examples of the former in clude: removing exotic and harmful Brazilian pepper plants from Oscar Scherer Park, helping with fund-rais ers for migrant workers, and working with HRS to distribute information and assist clients. For the latter, CSL seeks out agencies and other groups to establish partnerships that can offer New College students the chance to truly participate in the larger commu nity of Sarasota, gaining marketable experience while studying the history and theory behind the work they do. A major factor in the development of CSL was the application for and receipt of a grant from Florida's OfStudents and staff attended the Florida Office for Campus Volunteers conference in April, 1991.

The funding and a clearer knowledge of how our efforts fit with other projects in the state was invaluable. Our most successful endeavor so far is a partnership with the Commu nity Housing Corporation of Sarasota. Professor David Brain (sociology) sponsored a CSL tutorial entitled "Sarasota Neighborhood Renewal: A Service Learning Approach." Here are excerpts from his description: This group tutorial was organ ized under the auspices of the Cen ter for Service Learning in collaboration with the Community Housing Corporation of Sarasota, a nonprofit corporation involved in developing solutions to the problem of affordable housing here in Sarasota. The students worked with the Community Housing Corpora tion in the Gi/lespieParkNeighbor hood. The students were involved in designing, implementing, and tabulating a surveyofthe residents of roughly 5 00 units in the neigh borhood. They also made a physi cal assessment of the dwellings, spent a great deal of time talking to residents, and attended neighbor hood association meetings. One of the students participated in the writ ing of a federal grant application for a project to convert a public housing project to tenant owner ship. [Editor's note: The Cohen Way HUD grant has been ap proved.] I am the student who partici pated in writing the federal grant application (an application for funds to help convert a housing project to a tenant owned coopera tive). Among other things, this meant exposure to the HUD grant application process. The fieldwork was incredibly important to my ex-Continued on page 4 Nimbus Fall/Winter 1992 -Page 3


Opportunity Knocks Continued from page 3 perience. I knocked on doors in a housing project, Cohen Way, talked at some length with residents the Community Housing Corporatton and about the grant. I got to know a couple of the kids fairly well and they walked with me whenever I door-knocked. The bottom line is that I spoke with and learned from people I would likely never have had contact with, coming from a white/surburban background as I do. If I had only read about HUD's history in books, and learned about efforts to change current policies and situations from articles, I would know nothing about the very important and personal side of these policies. After talking with people about their concerns with the grant, I found that I believed in it; I really think it will help. So much so, that CSL is written into the grant application. We'll be setting up an enrichment/literacy program where New College students work with the kids and perhaps the adults of Cohen Way. The Community Housing Corporation was so pleased with the work of the participating New College students that their executive director is eager to set up more projects One currently underway is a tutorial which is producing an ethnographic film of an elderly black population in Laurel. Located about a half hour south of New College, Laurel is an established and historic community. While working with the Corporation on another project, the Laurel Civic Association president was impressed when she saw the survey that NC students had done for the Gillespie Park neighborhood and suggested a similar project in Laurel. This current project has grown into something more ambitious than last semes ter's tutorial. Again it is a service learning effort: students are learning about video and about putting together an ethnographic documentary. Readings cover such areas as the increasing trend of neighborhoods to use the video-making process to increase community interaction. The clash that can result between videographer and community is well documented Nimbus, Fall/Winter 1992-Page 4 Student volunteer Karen Eagen at the Deaf Service Center. and will provide excellent background for the project. Other issues include the danger of increased development wiping out Lau rel and dispersing its black population We hope the video will help preserve the community and raise awareness about Laurel; its beauty and history may otherwise go unnoticed. It's an ambitious project but an absolutely wonderful opportunity for students One real beauty of these and other CSL projects is that although they represent opportunities students made for themselves, their semi-insti tutionalization makes them opportu nities which can later be made available for the entire campus popu lation If, as you read this article, you think of community contacts that might be willing to work with CSL in ways similar to those described, please let us know by contacting the Alumnae/i Office Thanks very much Juliana Pare is a seventh-term New College student working on edu cation policy research in Tallahassee while on leave this term. #2BestBuy in Nation For the second year in a row, New College has been ranked second overall and ftrst among public colleges and universities as the best educational value in the nation by Money Magazine.

Letters to tile Editor Editor's Note: Both letters are responses to the article in the last Nimbus by Steve Waldman, NCSA president, about last year's ban on out door parties. This year students are allowed to have parties with music-in the Palm Court. Following a sound audit over the sum mer, students are experimenting with music vol ume levels and planning more permanent solutions such as speakers mounted high and directed toward the Palm Court floor. Another Modest Proposal DearSteve Waldman, My sympathies (()you and other mem bers of the New College community on the most n!cent demise of the Palm Court Parly. I say "most recent" because I'm writing to offer a small amount of histori cal perspective, as well as a possible solu tion. It should come as no surprise that this is not the first time PCP 's have been banned due to noise, and I hope, not the last The battle over noise (actually, it is music; calling it noise concedes a point to dte opposition) has been joined by stu dents, neighbors, campus police and city police probably for as long as New Col lege has existed. When I was a student dtings came to a head in I 978, I and PCP 's wen! forbidden. We were of fen!d the dining room in Hamilton Center as a alternative, but the relatively low ce1lmg (any ceiling would be too low) and the stench of hamburger grease and stale cigan!tte smoke precluded the kind of corybantic dancing attainable in Palm Court Needless to say, these wen! depn!ssing I spent a lot of time trying to imag me a solutron, but all the obvious ideas wen! either too expensive (architectural sound barrl_ers) or slow-growing (natural sound ban:ers). I rf!gn!t not having taken the long VIew at that time; if a few of us had planted a grove of something or other between the Hamilton dorms and U.S. 41 m the late seventies, Palm Court might now a clearing in the forest, where Dwnystanfestr vals could be staged away f"?m f!re eyes and ears of the uniniti ate (which rs to say, the residents of Bay Shore Drive). My favorite solution was not techni cally feasible at the time, but may warront consideration by cutn!nt New College stu dents. During my years at New College tit_en! an extremely low-budget FM mdw on campus, WRNC. Its broad casttng_schedule seemed to wax and wane acconimg to the inten!sts of whoever hap pened to be around at the time. Still, it ocCutn!d to me that if we could provide every student with a small FM receiver and headphones, we might broadcast Nimbus, Fall/Winter 1992 _Page 10 dance tapes during PCP s and everyone could dance together in silence. Each per son could have all the decibels he or she desires, and yet the neighbors wouldn t hear a thing U nforlunately, the Walkman had not yet been invented (or at least had not been mass-marketed) and I couldn t picture al'o/one wanting to dance wearing the n!latively massive headphones that wen! available at the time. But we are now living in the post-Walkman em, and this idea may be just odd enough to catch on at New College. I don' t know ifWRNC still exists but I believe low-powen!d FM lltlnsmitters can be bought reasonably at places like Radio Shack-or built by an enterprising Nat-Sci student Such a scheme would not be without dawbacks Some individuals' dancing styles are not conducive to keeping head phones on. (Mine, at times; Funky George 's almost always ) But the advan tages could be profound. The obvious need to get people back outside to dance is first and foremost : as long as dances are held indoors, it remains difficult for beginners to transcend the physical realm. This proposal might also have secon dary benefits for the folks in the admis sions office. The spectacle of hundreds of students dancing maniacally under the stars-in rhythmic unison, and yet in si le. nce---,should serve to attract just the land of person who would thrive at New College Certainly it would foster our reputation as a somewhat idiosyncratic in stitution ("Yeah, I was accepted at MI.T. but they didn' t have silent dance orgies .") M_oreover, need everyone be dancing m umson? A few additional FM transmitters from Radio Shack would make it pos sible to broadcast an assortment of dance tapes on different .frequencies, so dancers could choose their own drummers so to (Dancers obviously out of sync wtth the majority might referred to as members of the Thoreau School, or per haps the Stone Ponies faction after an early Linda Rondstadt group that had a hit song based on a Thoreau text.) This could be dangerous at a place like New C?l_lege, however, where the numberofindrvidual transmitters might eventually multiply to equal the number of students One other thought occurs to me. I was pleased to read in Nimbus that Rick Doblin has decided to go legitimate in the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). I would encourage everyone to support the work of MAPS, in hopes that some evening in the future we may find ourselves in Pal"! dancing together to the silent mUSic. W1thout headphones. Anyway I hope this will prove useful or at least inspire someone to come u with a less cumbersome solution whife 'td I' we aww e rverance by MAPS. Dancing un-der the stars in Palm Court was one of the most educational things I did while at New C ollege (it s the closest I came to solving the mind-body problem); I'd hate to see dtat opportunity lost Sincerely G illiam Johnston 7 5 Gilliam is a family physician who has been working for the U S Indian Health This fall he begins teaching at the Marne-Dartmouth Family Practice Resi dency Program in Augusta, Maine. He is mildly nervous that mentioning Rick Doblm may affect his DEA license Another Viewpoint Dear Steve Waldman: I could not help but respond to your one sided, selfish article, 'The Year the Parties Died. I fantasized about the day that I would be able to move off campus because the wall noise on weekends was so unnerving. I like many students, had a part time job in addition to my studies, and often I had to work Saturday and Sunday mornings. I could have done my job better if! had got ten more sleep some of those weekend nights-but I was sometimes kept up by the Palm Court noise And even on the nights that it didn 't keep me up, it stili pis sed me off that so many students could be so insistent, and sometimes belligerent, about their right to a loud stereo. Don't stereotype me as some goody goody who doesn't party and doesn't think anyone else should. I've done my share. But I did not feel I had the God (or New College) given n'ght to inflict my mu sical tastes on my follow students every weekend at oulltlgeous decibels until the wee hours of the morning Why don' t you and your fellow ear drum busters be diplomatic, instead of bel ligerent, and come to a compromise? There is a real world outside of New College......,..ou just can't act like the Pei cam pus is in a sound-proof bubble. Most sincerely, Laura Bmnstetter '87 Laura is fulfilling the internship requirement for the M.A in museum science at Texas Tech nical University at the Rogers (Ark.) His t orical Musewn.


_1 l Volunteers Around the World Equatorial West Africa: Following are excerpts from a letter written this sum mer to Professor Margaret Bates by Peace Corps volun teer Kathryn Galt '84 after her first year in Equatorial Guinea. Let me begin by telling you that I am happy with my decision to join the Peace Corps. It certainly isn't for every one, as you know. Eight of our original 18 group members have left for varying reasons, from refusal to take the Peace Corps oath (swearing to defend the U.S. Constitu tion, etc.), to unidentifiable growths in the lungs, ... to a proposal, via mail, of marriage. Our program in Equato rial Guinea now has a mere 20 volunteers with another group of 21 scheduled to arrive in August. I hope they're a hearty bunch! The cooperative volunteers met with disappointment in December with the withdrawal ofU.S.A.I.D. funding for the C.L.U.S.A. project. Apparently, Washington cut all budgets less than U.S. one million dollars, in order to trim our own budget, I suppose. So, all transportation, training, and other useful and successful activities came to an abrupt end. Village volunteers struggle on with their economatos (small cooperative stores) while I, as the sole city volunteer representing small business development, have a number of diverse projects. Currently, I work with an established women's cooperaDon1inican Republic Rodrigo Diaz '84, a Peace Corps volunteer in Do minican Republic, has spent the last year as the only American living in a town of .Dominican campesinos and a few Haitians. He's a community education pro moter, working with organizations help ing the rural poor. One of his main goals is to help the groups' members and leaders develop skills for community interactions. He works with two PTA-like organiza tions, is a technical advisor to a goat-raising coopera tive and also provides training for rural librarians. During a recent visit to Sarasota he summed up his work by saying the Peace Corps lives up to its slogan, "The toughest job I've ever loved." tive/credit union which is involved in construction of a children's park, cultivation of onions from Cameroun, pro duction of eggs and chickens, and other community devel opment schemes. The president of the group, Trinidad Morgades, is a linguistics expert specializing in Pidgin (!) and is one of the few educated persons to have returned to Equatorial Guinea after Macias' reign of terror ended in 1979 .... My other projects include increasing com production on the island, helping two Guineans establish their own ca cao production business without the costly "support" of Spanish middlemen, and teaching English to adults (my of ficial secondary project). I thoroughly enjoyed, much to my surprise, my English course after my initial refusal to involve myself in something with such a strong U.S. bias (everyone here wants to live in AMERICA). I decided I had had enough personal requests from older people (not able to attend lhe public schools) to make an effort to "meet the need." I designed a four-month course with the class meeting three times a week and believe those stu dents who attended regularly came away with a strong foundation on which to build in the future .... You never told me how much fun classroom instruction can be it seems like so much work from the student's perspective, both for himself and the professor!! Se11egal Ireland Steve Rosenbluth '86 has been appointed by the Mennonite Central Committee to supervise a community development project, setting up a wood working workshop, Bridge Woodcrafts, with a local community center in Belfast, Ireland. Steve will be in Belfast for three years. Gary and Tammera Lee Race '82 (shown above) joined the Peace Corps following their marriage in February in Ellenton, Fla. They initially went to Africa to work in environmental educa tion, but now are posted at the southern edge ofNiokolokoba, the largest national Park in West Africa. They're working on a sensi bilization program with the Bassari, a traditional, hunter/gatherer tribe. Nimbus Fall/Winter 1992 -Page 11
