This year students are analyzing more sustainable solutions to food waste in the GSB dining area. When asked why food waste was selected as the issue for this year, Mrs. Schuchman explained:
The Association for Experiential Education (AEE) defines its philosophy as a process that begins with a concrete experience, usually in order to solve a problem, a process of reflection and discussion that leads to abstract thinking, and later an application to real life. AEE values collaboration, leadership, and creative problem-solving skills that positively impact an individual’s ability to contribute greatly to companies and communities later in life.
This past July, my wife and I attended a concert with some friends at an extraordinarily small venue. For starters, the fact that we were able to go out and see a concert—as parents of three young children—was a minor miracle. To the point, though, seeing one of our favorite bands up-close-and-personal was a real treat.
