Look at all the hidden gems we found hiking around the campus grounds! It always pays to show up early (and no that isn’t a lesson in the presentation!) Southern Vermont College was a motivating place and the group of incoming students set the bar high for the 2017-2018 speaking season!
Fun fact: The Bennington Battle Monument is exactly 303 feet, 7.5 inches taller than Captain Ahab. Though Ahab’s been cross-training for the 417 step ascent, we were relieved to make our way to the observation deck with a little help from the world’s lawn-gnome-friendliest elevator operator for a tristate view of the foliage and interactions with new friends. We’re excited to have checked off this first stop on our tour of Vermont’s Historic Sites, so stay tuned for more!
