Each June after Commencement, Robert Moussetis, associate professor of international business, takes students on a trip abroad. This year, he and 20 others will visit Italy from June 13 to 23 with a goal of seeing as many sites and experiencing as much culture, art, architecture, history and current challenges as possible during their visit. They will travel to Venice, Florence (photo), Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento, Amalfi and the island of Capri. Often called the “travelin’ man,” Moussetis loves to travel and has led many D-Term and summer trips abroad.

Although the graduates’ caps and gowns will look the same, they aren’t. This year, the College showed its commitment to sustainability by using a new line of eco-friendly graduation wear made from 100 percent, post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. With millions of plastic bottles ending up in landfills daily and remaining there for generations, the academic apparel manufacturer Oak Hall introduced its new GreenWeaver line, which uses 23 bottles per gown.
