Hey all, hope you’re having a fantastic start to the semester. The weather’s been nice enough, the pizza at Peirce has been dope, and the hills are alive with the sound of music. What more can you ask for? Well, before you answer that, I have what you’ve been looking for – the newest edition of the Adventures of D-Cat, the series where we pop into the world of Sims and see what our lovely president has been up to.
Unfortunately, the Nuge isn’t actually hanging out in Copenhagen (as far as I know). But while visiting the Bertel Thorvaldsen Museum the other day, I did notice this sculpture of what could very well be one of S. Georgia Nugent’s illustrious ancestors. If Denmark’s greatest sculptor immortalized the Nuge in marble, I wonder who it was who immortalized her on canvas?
The first frost is falling, the campus is emptying and everyone’s headed home for the holidays, which means it’s time for everyone’s favorite activity: Nugespotting.
This most hallowed of Thrill traditions applies mostly to those who will be in the tristate area over winter break; if you’ll be around New York City, you might just have a chance of spotting our fearless leader, S. Georgia Nugent, in her natural habitat (hot tip- she’s indigenous to the Upper West Side region). Last one to take a surreptitious iPhone pic of the Nuge is a rotten egg! Extra points if you can get her to take a selfie with you.
Our beloved Nuge is cheating on us with another institution! Well, not exactly, but she has been elected to serve on the board of the American University in Sharjah (AUS). Sharjah is one of the United Arab Emirates (think Dubai’s little sister), and the University offers “the chance to experience authentic American education in the Gulf.”
“Dr. Nugent has experience as a graduate, professor and academic administrator at renowned institutions, and in the light of her current role as Chair of the Board of the Council of Independent Colleges, she is exceedingly qualified to serve on the Board of Trustees of AUS.” — Dr. Peter Heath, Chancellor of AUS
