In honor of President’s day, I thought I might highlight one of Union College’s most beloved past presidents, Eliphalet Nott. During his unprecedented and unrivaled 62 year tenure, Nott bought our current campus and ended our time squatting in downtown Schenectady, hired a frenchman to do the designing with some European flair, and reformed our fabulous curriculum. And with a name like that, it’s no wonder they named our fantastic 16-sided Nott memorial after the man! Nott may have kicked it almost 150 years ago, he still has something to say: check Eliphalet Nott out on Twitter!
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
