Several Queens students were recently awarded their academic degrees from Boston University—including Fresh Meadows’ Sae-Mi Jeon (who received a master of social work), Astoria’s Travis Vance (master of science in computer information systems), and Jodi-Ann Manning (BA in psychology).
Three Queens students—including Fresh Meadows’ Bernadette Rooney and Jamaica’s Sayeeda Manzoor and Jennifer Desamero—recently participated in a project that won a New York City sustainable design contest by using dried clay and melted aluminum to build a pavilion on Governor’s Island.
The three Hofstra University students’ project was titled “Cast & Place.” It took first place in the 7th Annual City of Dreams Pavilion competition that encourages sustainable design by challenging architects, designers and engineers to envision and create architecture out of materials that will have as little impact on the environment as possible.
