Pints With Profs
The class of 2012 hosted the biggest Pints With Profs gathering to date, attracting a record 300 students and 120 faculty and staff members to the April 5 event.
Organized each spring by the outgoing senior class, Pints With Profs helps students transition to their post-graduation lives by providing a venue to chat informally with faculty and administrators about their plans. Part of the appeal of this year’s gathering was the unveiling of the class of 2012 pint glasses, which students fashioned from repurposed wine bottles donated by Dining Services’ catering division and individual faculty and staff members. Each was emblazoned with the Dickinson wordmark and “Class of 2012."
“We’re trying hard to make this year’s senior events unique to our class,” says Kim Starfield ’12, who worked with Charlie Alcorn ’12, Elaine Herbig ’12, Idea Fund members and other student volunteers to create 345 glasses, which sold out at the event. “A lot of the [senior] events are annual, ingrained events that we wouldn't really want to change or replace, so we've worked to find ways to add our spin.”
