Moscovici Explores the Science of Wine in Australia

Daniel MoscoviciDaniel Moscovici, associate professor of Environmental Science and Geology, received a Fulbright Scholarship this summer at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) in Toowoomba, Australia, where he looked at the science and sustainability of wine. There is a lot more behind that glass of red or white on your dinner table than you may realize. 

During his time at USQ, Moscovici met with many faculty members at the university to find ways to incorporate sustainability into their teachings. He also developed and recorded two lectures which the university will be able to use in their online courses indefinitely. Moscovici helped expand curriculums for USQ’s Wine Science major, Master of Sustainability in Science and specializations in Sustainable Development.






Picture Stockton…Remembering 9/11 with a Campus Memorial

Angel Cordero

Student senators and their friends spent the past week writing by hand the names of each 9/11 victim who was killed during the attacks.

All 2,977 names are on display in the Campus Center coffeehouse. The streams of paper spanning the height of the walls have converted the space into a visual memorial. Next to the names is a banner that reads, “Gone, but not forgotten.

Angel Cordero, the SVO president and a post 9/11 veteran, said, “I share a bond with those who were immediately impacted by the attacks. We remember today, and tell these stories, because the 3,000+ people who perished cannot. We keep their memories alive through reflection, remembrance and respect.”
