Watson FellowsSophomores Stephanie Kozofsky '13 and Victoria Measles '13 have been awarded 2011 Jeannette K. Watson Fellowships. They were chosen from a pool of New York City undergraduate candidates because they "demonstrate exceptional promise, outstanding leadership skills, and commitment to the common good." 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 thinking of a career either as an English teacher, a lawyer, or a U.S. Senator.Measles, a Women's and Gender Studies and Political Science dual major, recently attended the 2011 United Nations Conference on the Status of Women, participating in the Working Group for Girls preconference. 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 in Review 2010-2011 | 11
