Green Buildings Open House
(This is not entirely a Paul Smith's related item, but I thought some folks might be interested - esp. the Natural Resources students & staff. There are at least 5 sites out around Vermontville & Rainbow Lake. And if you're up for a longer drive, there are a bunch in the Canton/Potsdam area.)

Saturday October 6 is this year's Green Buildings Open House day.

You can take self-guided tours of green buildings in your area, talk to the owners, find out more about the renewable & alternative energy technologies they have installed, as well as other green technologies.

Things generally run from 10am to 4pm.

More information can be found here: http://nesea.org/buildings/openhouse/

Note: This is where you can find listings for the Green Buildings Open House in the six New England States, plus Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. I don't know where one might find the info for the other states, or even if it's scheduled for the same day elsewhere. One might check the website for the National Solar Tour.

Apparently, two students died after canoes overturned on Lower St. Regis Friday evening. Don't know all the details yet; but there's a statement up on http://www.paulsmiths.edu/http://www.paulsmiths.edu/

I was just sitting back, reminiscing about the old days at PSC, and thinking that Autumn was always my favorite time of year there. I used to swim at the ropes-course, I pushed the logs up to steady that little dock they have there. I enjoyed hiking around the rock-quarry, and one fall I dug a sand-cave under the bank by Toga. If you dug down deep enough, you'd find wooden benches I put in there. It's mostly filled in now, but at it's glory it had cinderblocks supporting a front wall, cobbles supporting the sides and back, and little alcoves carved in to hold candles. And of course there was the bucks hung up behind Deer Camp for the cleaning.

Yep, come Autumn, I really miss those days.

Hey Fellow Smitties!
It's the 4th week of school and it feels like I just got here. I've got a full course load and whole bunch other stuff on my plate. But I'm loving it.

I just thought I'd see how the rest of you, Smitties, are. Maybe we'll plan a lunch or something like that... just a thought.

Off to class. ^_^

Paul Smith's College, Paul Smiths, N.Y.
There's a simple explanation for the extraordinary look and feel of this career-oriented institution high in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. It began life not as a college but as Paul Smith's Hotel, a favorite of Teddy Roosevelt's. The main campus is 14,200 acres for just 850 students, with bachelor's programs ranging from biology and business to forestry and ecotourism. The school's director of intramurals calls himself "the Dean of Fun" and organizes hikes in boots, skis and snowshoes. There's also a marathon canoe team and a coed woodsmen's team that throws axes and rolls logs. The school owns and runs the nearby Hotel Saranac. ~Newsweek, 8/22/05

This was stolen from an email, I recieved this morning!

...a coed woodsmen's team that throws axes and rolls logs... Yup, that's me!

Just had to add that!

Hi all!
I'm a new user to this community and some of you probably know me. I'll be a Junior this year in the Environmental/Natural Resources area. Hopefully I'll graduate in December with my associates in environmental studies. I'm looking forward to another semester at PSC however, it might be my last. I've just recently applied to Johnson State College in VT and now I'm waiting to see what happens. But until then hope everyonen is having a great summer and I can't wait to get back to the adirondacks!

Hey! My name is Krista and I'm from California. I got stuff in the mail from Paul Smith's, and the internet isn't always as helpful as I would like it to be, so I'll bother you guys who go there.

I'm interested in the envrionmental programs, so if that matters:

What is the general social/student life like? Is the school liberal much?

collegeboard.com said the male/female ratio is 75:25....is that about true?

Does anyone know of any apartments or houses for rent, that are in the Saranac Lake, Bloomingdale, Gabriels, Easy Street or Paul Smiths area?

I'm a junior at Paul Smith's College and would like to have my own place. I pay too much for room and board to put up with the BS and drama in the dorms. I plan on sharing an apartment with my boyfriend and possibly a friend.

Thanks in advance. &hearts

Packing List!
Everytime I go back up to PSC, I always say I'm going to pack less crap. But do I, NO! So this time I'm going to try to bring less stuff. Here's what I'm limiting myself too! This might help you guys if your new to college or this might help you returners. But I know that it's going to help me. I only have so much room in my Blazer. LoL! If I'm forgetting something in my list that you think I'm going to drastically need, let me know. I hate it when I get to school and remember that what I forgot is in my room. >_<

Packing List?!?Collapse )

Hello Fellow Smitties!!!
Just stumbled across this community and instant thought, "No Way!". So I joined!

I'm a PSC student and Alum! I started my PSC career in the Fall of 2002. This May (2005), I received my Outdoor Recreation, associates and am planning on graduating in December 2006, with my Recreation Resource Management, Bacholer's!

I'm a member of the PSC Woodmen's Team and the Forestry Club. And I LOVE it there!!!! I can't wait until September!!!

I've lived in Hillside 210, Livermore 225 and Saratoga 124.

I've had the best experiences at PSC. From my first Rugby Kegger to the first night I saw Aurora Borealis. There is no place like it on Earth!

Okay, I'm done gushing over PSC. My little slice of heaven!

It's great to know that someone made a PSC community! Kudos to you!

just an idea to waste time out of class...

A dog-show sim, pretty addicting I think, but at least it's free. I just figured if people were wondering what to do over the summer, there's always wasting time online *grin*

I hate to be that person who never says anything of use to anyone, and only asks annoying questions, but it seems to be my lot in life.

I visited the campus at the last open house (wonderful job, guys), but there was one question that nobody seemed able to answer for me. What is the best phone service for the area? I need a new cell phone, and would prefer a provider who actually has service in the area. Sprint worked in Lake Saranac, but we couldn't get a signal on campus. Who would you recommend?

Bandwidth for Education
One of the things that annoys me from time to time is how some people seem to forget that first and foremost, Paul Smith's is an educational facility. Recently, a group of students formed a gaming club on campus and now they're protesting that games like Everquest are now blocked by the firewall.

I personally think that is a good thing... here's why.Collapse )

Educational resources are part of our tuition fees and something all students have a right to.

Games are not.
