According to recent studies, four-year colleges in the United States graduate about half of their students in six years. But some institutions, including some that lack the resources of more prestigious colleges and universities, achieve much higher-than-expected results.
From October 12–15, nine alums, three current students, and two faculty members traveled to Kolkata, India, with the Vassar Club South Asia (VCSA) for a four-day immersive program, “Behind the Scenes of Durga Puja.”
The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center announced the recent appointments of three exceptional individuals to key curatorial positions. These important hires reflect the Loeb’s ongoing commitment to sharing its outstanding art collection and exhibition program with our diverse campus and community audiences.
Vassar’s fall sports teams are off to strong starts and are in contention for post-season play. The men’s soccer team, paced by Liberty League scoring leader Owen Fauth ’24, battled Montclair (NJ) State University, the sixth-ranked team in the country, to a 1-1 draw.
Lynn Straus ’46 was a philanthropist, adventurer, tireless champion of early childhood education, and an avid art collector. Upon her passing, she bequeathed nearly 50 pieces of artwork to the Loeb for the benefit of Vassar’s students.
