The Academy Celebrates a Great Fall Semester

Monday, December 5, 2016

The Bucksbaum Early Entrance Academy students celebrated completing their first semester in college with hot chocolate, holiday cookies, and a Netflix fireplace.  They also shared their best college memory to date, and reminisced over a late night gathering that bonded them together.

Belin-Blank Executive Director, Susan Assouline, Assistant Director of Student Services, Jan Warren, Administrator of Bucksbaum Academy, David Gould, Graduate Assistant, Kristin Wurster, and Kristin’s infant daughter, Ellen, joined the students.  Susan, Jan, David, and Kristin each shared a favorite recollection as well, which ranged from the welcome dinner – to how well the students had represented the Center at the November salon.

The students were given Ta-Nehisi Paul Coates’ book, Between the World and Me, to read over winter break.

To relax before final exams, the Academy students gathered at Fired Up – a contemporary ceramic studio – to paint pottery and eat pizza.  Along with Jan, David, Kristin, and (of course) Ellen, the students were joined by a group of upperclassmen connected to the Center.  It was great fun.

It has been a very successful launch to the Bucksbaum Early Entrance Academy, and the inaugural class is off to a terrific start.  Here’s to making 2017 the best year yet!
