Checking in With Dean Forbes -Summer 2019


We just wrapped up the last session of Nature of Life at Itasca, which means the new semester isn’t far off. The end of NOL brings with it the departure of Abby Connover, longtime coordinator of our Nature of Life program both at Itasca and back on campus, as well as leader of the CBS Guilds. Everyone who knows Abby understands what an incredible contribution she has made in this role, and we are grateful for her service to the College.
