Incoming Actives President Note:
First I would like to congratulate the new Cap and Gown members! I had a great time celebrating with you at Tapping Tea and am looking forward to serving as your President and getting to know you better throughout the 2013-2014 school year. I am thrilled to have such a talented new group of actives who truly embody Cap and Gown’s highest standards of academics, community service, and leadership.
Vice President of Mentorship, Andrea Hinton, Vice President of Finance, Veronica Polin, and I are excited to serve as this year’s Cap and Gown Actives Executive Board! Our goals for the year are to continue to strengthen the Cap and Gown community on campus through expanding the Cap and Gown mentorship program within the actives group, amplifying the group’s social media presence, and organizing both formal and informal events on campus.
I am looking forward to working with the Alumni Board to make the 2013-2014 school year a fantastic experience for Cap and Gown!
Outgoing Actives President Note:
It was an honor to serve as the Cap and Gown Actives President this past year. Looking back, I am thrilled that we were able to organize so many formal programs and events, including the Student Activities Fair, Tapping Tea, the Cap and Gown Mentorship Program, Winter Welcome, and Spring Brunch. Additionally, I enjoyed getting to know the Cap and Gown members through informal events we organized, such as the Fraiche Social. I know that the cross-generational and cross-cultural bonds that were formed throughout my Cap and Gown experience will continue to grow throughout my life.
In conclusion, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who helped make Cap and Gown such a fabulous experience for me this past year! First, I would like to thank Hannah Belitz and Jacquelyn Wong who tirelessly worked to revitalize the Cap and Gown application process and to make all of Cap and Gown’s events possible this past year. Second, I would like to thank the Alumni Board, which provided fantastic guidance throughout the entire year. Third, I would like to thank the Cap and Gown honorary members for participating in our events this year and passing on excellent advice to all of the Cap and Gown members. Finally, I would like to thank all of the active members of Cap and Gown and my graduating Cap and Gown class for being so inspirational. This past year was an amazing experience and I look forward to continuing to actively participate in Cap and Gown as a member of the Alumni Board!
