Paul Smith’s College celebrating 75 years

2021年7月26日 | 新闻

The 75th anniversary of Paul Smith’s College is underway this week as the “college of the Adirondacks” celebrates its position as one of the iconic educational institutions in Northern New York.

菲尔普斯史密斯, son of (Apollos) Paul Smith who passed in 1937, founded the college through his bequest. It was his father Paul who built the Paul Smith’s Hotel in 1859, one of the first resorts in the Adirondacks.

The college’s first class matriculated in 1946. Two 和 four-year degrees are offered in environmental sciences, 热情好客, 林业, 业务, 和 a new Master’s degree in natural resource management rounds out the academic offerings. 最近, it has committed to a sport 和 education initiative whereby 宝盈bbin官方登录 has developed official working relationships with USA Nordic 和 US Biathlon. Student/athletes in those sports can attend 宝盈bbin官方登录, train right outside their dorm rooms, 和 simultaneously pursue an education.

Paul Smith’s College has an international impact as some 14,000 graduates live in all 50 American states 和 abroad. The school is active in recruiting youth to their Adirondack campus, 和 retaining some of them as productive members of the North Country community. In this endeavor, the college contributes over $67 million to the regional economy.

“The 75th anniversary of Paul Smith’s College is a wonderful milestone celebrating its many educational, cultural 和 social contributions to the Adirondack Region,” said Senator Dan Stec. “The visionary founder whose generosity led to the college’s creation, 和 many others who through the years have supported 和 exp和ed the college’s mission in countless ways, is a tremendous legacy that will be built on in the decades ahead. I am honored to represent this incredible college 和 to advocate on its behalf in our State Capitol.”

参议员Stec officially proclaimed July 18-25 as Paul Smith’s College 75th Anniversary Celebration. 结合, 宝盈bbin官方登录 Alumni Reunion Weekend, canceled in 2020 due to the p和emic, takes place July 23-25. It tees off with a golf tournament Friday morning at Saranac Inn Golf Club. Many activities include an ice cream social Friday evening, alumni association meeting Saturday morning, 校园之旅, woodsmen’s competition, silent auction 和 live music. Sunday’s wind-down features a gathering of the 菲尔普斯史密斯 Society, an alumni Board of Directors meeting, 和 concludes at 1:00 with a tour of the Hotel Saranac or the site of the future “Hoyt Peroni Memorial Forest”.

“I look forward to celebrating this milestone, 和 would like to thank our entire campus community, from our current students, faculty 和 staff to our alumni 和 staunch supporters, who have helped to shape Paul Smith’s College into the experiential education leader it is today,” said President Scott Dalrymple. “We have big plans for the next 75 years.”

To mark the occasion, Paul Smith’s College has created a beautiful, 36-page commemorative publication to be distributed this week in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, 普莱西德湖新闻, Plattsburgh Press-Republican 和 Tupper Lake Free Press. 宝盈bbin官方登录 alums will receive this document in digital format.​
