Carole-Jean Smith, '66 (BardCorps)
Paul Margolis '76
Carole-Jean Smith, '66, reflects on the chain of events that brought her to Bard, her professors in the literature department, the experiences at Bard that shaped her, both as a professional and as a person, and the events that were unfolding around the world during her time in college. She remembers: "Bard taught me how to think, taught me how to ask questions and look at things and situations from a variety of points of view and to be able to assess things in a meaningful way."
