Barbara Ann Karr Smith '70

"Beauty Shop" hairdryers in the basement of Whiting Hall! Sharing french fries and a coke in the Gizmo with my husband to be Stephen B. Smith, also 1970. Professors who knew my name. Professors who still remembered me decades after graduation!

Joan Kleerup Mansfield '54

I loved meeting new people, being a cheerleader, eating snacks in the Gizmo, playing bridge after dinner in Whiting Hall, and now, I love belonging to the FYC.

Linda Hall '69

The personal attention of the professors for their students.  Most of mine were available whenever I had a subject that needed clarification.  I also loved the hot fudge sundaes at The Gizmo.

Justin Steele '13

I love the Knox bubble, breakfast bagels in the Gizmo, looking at the stars from SMAC's roof, Flunk Day scares, the cool educational culture, and the freedom to flourish.
