Hey all,

It’s been a while for those who know me. For those who don’t (!) I’m Michaela & I graduated just last year & am now working in the Alumni Relations Office on campus. Lucky me I get to stick around and learn what others have done after transitioning out of Bennington. Anyway, I wanted to pop in & share RYOT an online news source co-founded by one of our very own, Bryn Mooser ‘01!

The site connects non-profit organization with news stories featured on the site. Following every article there is a link to an organization that does work related to the issues presented in the piece. This is RYOT’s way of allowing the reader to “Become the News” and get involved in the topics we read about in the paper and online EVERYDAY.

Thought I would share it with you all because it’s so Bennington in spirit and just plain fascinating. Take a peek! I apologize in advance because you’ll get lost in RYOT for hours upon hours……
