Chiller Plant

A 240-ton hydraulic crane delivered a 30-ton chiller to CMC on September 9. ‘What is a chiller?’ you may ask. It is a state-of-the-art, super-cool(ing) unit to service both the Mid-Quad dorms and Roberts Pavilion. And with late summer heat upon us, the timing couldn’t be any better.

Living on One’s “Change Series” launched its first two mini episodes on Sept. 3. This is an eight-part series following the experiences of Chris Temple ’12, Zach Ingrasci ’12, Sean Leonard and Ryan Christofferson, who lived on a mere $1 a day for eight weeks in rural Guatemala. Each episode focuses on a specific and pressing development topic faced by the young men (and their community), including access to clean water, nutrition, education, employment, finance and disasters. Each segment is paired with additional resources to help viewers take action.

The word "intensive" has taken on new meaning for a group of highly motivated CMC students who were enrolled this month in FIN 300: Seminar in Applied Finance, a course in the Masters Program in Finance at CMC.

The three-week course (which ended August 30) offered through CMC’s Robert Day School of Economics and Finance, differs from other classes in that it includes a team-building retreat in Big Bear and a networking trip to the Bay area.

Brentt Baltimore

Some people can’t quite figure Brentt Baltimore ’10. Others, when they find out the work he does and what he’s sacrificed to do it, know all they need to know about what kind of a guy he is.

You see, Baltimore, 24, is making news for having turned down a six-figure job at a Los Angeles hedge fund in favor of a $33,000-a-year position at a venture capital firm in Detroit––despite having $38,000 in student loan debt.
