Deerfield Magazine Spring 2013

communications – April 15, 2013

The Spring 2013 Deerfield Magazine features stories about an important new capstone course, alumna Janie Merkel ’91 and her role as a biology researcher, and the development of our new Arts Center. Read the spring issue online.

Magazine Features:

  • Critical Elements: Students in Deerfield’s new capstone course, Global H20 American Currents, tackle some of the world’s most difficult challenges.

  • Body of Knowledge: A couple of years ago three Yale undergrads and their classmates abandoned chilly New Haven in favor of a more tropical climate for spring break. Their destination had it all: lots of lush foliage, sandy beaches, warm waters, and at least 40,000 plant species… not your typical hot spot. But then again, these students weren’t typical spring breakers, and neither was their destination.

  • He(Art): Renovations on the Memorial Buildings underscore Deerfield’s commitment to the arts.

Also Inside: The contributions of the Morsmans, College Admissions, Reflections from Admission’s Corner Office, and Robert B. Crow Schoolmaster’s Chair Andrew Harcourt
