CCSU Alumni E-News, May 2010

The CCSU Alumni ENews is designed to keep alumni and friends up-to-date with news from the University, including important announcements, student and alumni achievements, athletic news and upcoming events.

New Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Named

CCSU President Jack Miller named Paul Schlickmann the new Director of Athletics early in April. Schlickmann comes to New Britain from Stony Brook University, where he was the Executive Associate Director of Athletics.  Click here for more of the story. Click here for video of the announcement.

Around Campus

CCSU students received a number of awards recently, as did the University itself, which was selected by Princeton Review as one of 286 “Green Colleges” in the nation. CCSU was identified as an “exemplary Green institution.”
     Theatre major Gabbi Mendelsohn received the national award for directing at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in DC (think of it as an Oscar) for directing a play she cowrote with Marissa Ann Grande.

CCSU Moonbuggy Team

     Marketing major Samantha Magri won the Personal Venture Division of the Spring 2010 Connecticut Collegiate Business Plan Competition ($1,000); she also won the state-wide Elevator Pitch Competition for a Personal Venture ($500). Mechanical Engineering student Tim Maver won the overall award for top engineering paper at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) student paper competition. Fourteen engineering students competed in the 17th Annual Great Moonbuggy Race, held at the US Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Jeffery Cloutier, Walid Alhomari, Hitesh Shah , Jason Williams, Joseph Wickham, Arsalan Shamin, Majidullah Dehlavi, Mounir Elrassmani, Nicholas Monacchio, Pawel Abramek, Carly Woodward, Emanuel Figueroa, Massab Hashmi, and Jenna Kimble designed, built, and raced the CCSU Moonbuggy to 7th place out of 54 teams drawn from around the nation.
