Tom Dawson and Jessica Brody, the 1998-99 Athenaeum Student Fellows, would like to welcome all new and returning members of the CMC community to the Athenaeum.

Dawson majors in government and economics. He spent this past summer researching charter schools and education reform at the Pacific Research Institute for Public Policy in San Francisco. This topic will also be the focus of his senior thesis.

Brody is a PPE (philosophy, politics, and economics) major. This summer, she interned at the Alliance for Children's Rights with the support of a CMC Community Service Grant. Brody also worked as the scholarship coordinator at United Friends of the Children. She will research emancipated foster youth for her thesis.

The Athenaeum strives to offer an eclectic mix of speakers and subjects, as well as encouraging dialogue. We welcome your suggestions and feedback.

Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum

The Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum was conceived as a place where students and faculty could gather for intellectual discourse in an intimate and relaxed setting and integrate their academic and social lives. Public programs are scheduled Monday through Thursday during the academic year and are publicized through the bi-weekly newsletter, The Fortnightly.

While events are primarily for students, the Athenaeum hosts lunches, dinners, and receptions for academic classes, student organizations, and official functions of the College.
