A Community of ScholarsWhile at Pace, Lorendra was a Dyson Fellow, head delegate for the Pace Model United Nations Team which won the Outstanding Delegation for the Netherlands at Model United Nations, student videography coordinator for the Left Forum at Pace, co-editor of Pace's Aphros literary magazine, and in her capacity as President of the Stonewall Coalition and the Gay-Straight Alliance helped to found the LGBTQA Task Force and Center.

WGS Professor Nancy Reagin, PhD is also including a chapter by Pinder in the forthcoming book, The Hobbit and History. Her Fulbright scholarship will take her to South Africa in February 2012. She will be researching the gender and socioeconomic factors that foster the practice of multiple concurrent partnerships and as a result increased rates of HIV/AIDS transmission among youth in KwaZulu-Natal."I started at Pace in 2007, as a naive but optimistic first generation college student, with a lot of hopes but no real idea of how I was going to make it through the next four years," says Pinder. "Then I was accepted to the Honors College, began working on campus and started to catch my footing in the Pace system. There, I met professors, staff, and alumni who without a doubt changed my life. At every juncture, especially in the tough times, they gave me the guidance, that in working towards my own personal greatness, I would be nowhere without. I have been given a lot of opportunities, from financial aid and scholarships that ensured my place here every semester, to the support of a college community that, once I really tapped into it, nurtured and really helped me to grow. For that, I am immensely thankful." 10 | Dyson College of Arts and SciencesAcademics

The three-year Watson Fellowships include paid summer internships, mentoring, and enhanced educational opportunities.Kozofsky, an English major with minors in Criminal Justice and Spanish, spent last summer working as an English language teacher at a camp in Greece and serves as president of her dormitory council and secretary of the Criminal Justice Society.

She is an active student leader and organizes and facilitates weekly "Taboo Talks," where students are encouraged to share perspectives on gender, sexuality, and related topics. Society of FellowsOn April 28, 2011, the Society of Fellows of Dyson College of Arts and Sciences celebrated its 30th anniversary and inducted its 30th class named for University Historian and History Professor Marilyn Weigold, PhD. This honor society fosters undergraduate scholarship in the arts and sciences by providing enriching experiences for students with outstanding academic ability. Participation and membership in the Society of Fellows affords students an opportunity to develop their intellect and display their talents in a variety of settings.Each fall the Society hosts an extremely popular off-site weekend retreat where students, faculty, and alumni share in a lively debate on a chosen topic in a casual setting. This year's topic was "The Cinematic Environment: Reflecting on the Environmental Condition through Film." At the Society's Annual Meeting held in early spring each year, students present scholarly research and artistic projects. New members are recognized at the annual Induction Ceremony held in late spring. The official journal of the Society, Transactions, was created for the purpose of publishing peer-reviewed work done by Pace University students under the sponsorship of a fellow or member of the Pace faculty.Fast Facts About Dyson 23 Fulbright Winners since 200218 Watson Fellowswww.pace.edu/dysonfellowsYear in Review 2010-2011 | 11
