Student Profile: Elena Smith

News & Events

The Belizean unions strike of 2005 brings back mixed memories for a graduate student, Elena Smith, who played a key role in the national uprising. She remembers police stationed outside her home, being shot at with rubber bullets, but also the virtue in fighting for educators.

“It was a dangerous time, but it was something we needed to do as teachers and as citizens,” said Ms. Smith.

Time to ‘Step Up’

News & Events

On Monday, Nov. 5, in the Moakley Center auditorium, Noube Rateau, '10, owner of Noube Productions, is presenting “Step up,” a documentary about the increase in broken homes and cases of father abandonment in today's society.
 
This is Mr. Rateau’s eighth film. As with his previous documentaries, Mr. Rateau seeks to highlight an important social issue in hopes it will educate the public and inspire change. The film focuses on the long-lasting problems for children who grow up without fathers.

A Hurricane Force

News & Events

Long before Hurricane Sandy began making its way up the East Coast, the national hurricane forecast for the season was being put together two thousand miles away. Few may know that the data that serves as the bedrock for that forecast is housed and maintained inside BSU's GeoGraphics Lab.

Working for Sen. Kerry

Thu, 2012-10-25 13:02 -- rmatheson

Lorrie Jenkins, '13, a Navy veteran, was recently hired as Veterans' Liaison for U.S. Sen. John Kerry, a position she secured thanks to Career Services' Shadow a Legislator Program, where students trail an official at the Massachusetts Statehouse for a day. Her new job recently brought her to President Obama's rally in New Hampshire, where she met the presidential candidate. Pretty good for someone who was never one for politics before the shadow program sparked her interest just last semester.

A Capital Gain

News & Events

When Michael Verlezza decided to attended Bridgewater State University he got more than he bargained for. In a good way. The economics and finance major from Attleboro was given the opportunity to spend time in the nation’s capital thanks to the institution’s partnership with The Washington Center, the largest independent, nonprofit academic internship program in the country.

“It is an experience of enrichment and inspiration that will come to define my academic career at Bridgewater State University,” he said.
