Meet Me in Poughkeepsie brings over 1,000 students into the community

The Second Annual Meet Me in Poughkeepsie, which occurred on Oct. 10, brought more than 1,000 Vassar students into the Mid-Hudson Valley. Thirty activities, organized by Vassar student groups and offices, explored different facets of the area surrounding the College. Activities ranged from picnicking at the Vanderbilt Mansion, to apple picking at Wilklow Orchards, to sipping cappuccinos at the Aurora Pastry Shop. The day concluded with the Senior Class traveling to Mahoney's Irish Pub in downtown Poughkeepsie, where students danced the night away with the first (of many) bonding experiences during their final year of Vassar.
