Hello! My name is Lindsay Roe. Currently, I am serving as president of C.I.R.C.L.E., which is an acronym for the long, but descriptive name of the MSMC student club Conversations to Inspire Reading Children’s Literature with Engagement.

Books to be discussed for the semester are chosen at the beginning of each term by C.I.R.C.L.E. members to ensure interest. In addition to meetings, C.I.R.C.L.E. members also share their books with students in the area, either by holding book talks in local elementary schools, volunteering at the Saturday reading program at the Newburgh Armory, or hosting events for local children on campus.

What is Academic Council?
The Academic Council represents the academic side of student life. Academic Council works to create a balance between working hard and having fun, and always welcomes new members and ideas! Academic Council bridges the gap between education and fun by holding events on campus to help students realize that both are possible.
