Nichols students visit NYC and network with alumni

"As an investor, I am constantly striving to learn more and internalize the expertise of other successful investors. While the experience of interacting with other successful alums proved rewarding in and of itself, engagement with some of the current students was the icing on the cake. I believe that directly interacting with the students affords alumni unique insights, enabling us to provide the highest level of utility to Nichols. By better understanding the concerns or challenges current students face, we can be most effective in providing support and guidance." - Jonathan Birtwell '06

Eight SAS students traveled to NYC on Friday, November 6 to visit with some prominent Nichols alumni on a beautiful 75-degree day. Steve Malcolm ’01 visited with students at his employer Invenias, Inc. to speak about social media and preparing for the workforce today. Steve is on the College’s Alumni Board of Directors and is also on the committee for the annual Alumni Golf Tournament. Students then enjoyed lunch in Midtown where they were able to speak with Keith Anderson ’81, Dave Bedard ’86, Jon Birtwell ’06 and Joanne O’Malley ’79. The students ended the day with another alumni visit with Rob Weibel ’81 at Imperial Capital where they learned about his career in risk arbitrage. It was a wonderful opportunity for the students to network with some of our most dedicated alumni in the big apple!

"The NYC trip was so important to my future, it's unbelievable. Meeting with alumni gave me a sneak preview to my life after Nichols." - Christopher Silvia '18

"After participating in this trip for three consecutive years I still have the same perspective from year one - Having the opportunity to speak with some of our most successful alumni and listen to their advice and stories motivates me to strive to work harder for who and where I want to be tomorrow." - Paola Solano '17

Forestry program leaves lasting mark on campus


Forestry alumni Jim Jackson ’69, Jon Ives '67 and Ron Schmitt ’65 stand with their alumni achievement award in the newly named Nicon Plaza on campus.

As part of the ribbon cutting for the new academic building, the College dedicated Nicon Plaza, a garden area adjacent to the new building, to the students and faculty of the Nichols College Forestry Program, Nichols Conservation Club (Nicon) and the Intercollegiate Woodsmen Teams

From 1954 to 1970, this group had such an impact on the culture of the college, with their hands-on study of forestry management, their thrilling competitions, and their annual game suppers,” said President Engelkemeyer. “Today they remain a spirited group of alumni who return to campus for their own reunion weekends and who spearheaded an effort to raise a significant gift to this building.”  Their efforts raised close to $250,000 for the project.

Earlier that day, Nichols College foresters were given the Alumni Achievement Award by the Alumni Association Board of Directors for their impact on the culture and history of Nichols. Jim Jackson ’69, Jon Ives '67 and Ron Schmitt ’65 accepted the award on behalf of all Forestry alumni.
