My Google alert on "Roskie" (okay, I have an ego) turned up a little gem today - an article from the Bozeman (Montana) Daily Chronicle about students moving into Roskie Hall (on the Montana State campus). Roskie Hall is named after my great aunt, Gertrude Roskie, who was a home economics professor and dean of the professional schools until she died in a tragic car accident in the mid-1960s.
So what's the land use angle? Fittingly (as the Roskies have always been interested in natural resources issues) Roskie Hall has something called the Outdoor Pursuits Floor. According to the MSU campus walking tour literature, "This gives students an opportunity to become involved in outdoor recreational activities while learning more about ecological issues and the environment." The students might be more interested in the skiing than the ecology, but it's wonderful that MSU is taking advantage of the natural draw of the ski resorts to create an educational experience. If only I could figure out how to take my students on a skiing field trip in Georgia...
