Partners in the Park
Dr. Will Hustwit, director of the Harrison Honors Program, recently participated in the "Partners in the Parks" (PITP) directors' retreat at Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park, Colo.  Partners in the Parks is an experiential learning program that partners National Parks with host collegiate honors programs to create week-long adventures in outdoor education. The program gives students and faculty an understanding of both the ecological and cultural diversity of the park as well as research and management issues unique to the park.  Students also get to meet incredible people who work for and with the National Parks and other honors students from across the country. Plus, you enjoy camping, hiking, and recreating in some of America's most scenic, natural destinations. In July 2023, Dr. Hustwit will return to Rocky Mountain National Park and co-lead a trip for Harrison Scholars, and other honors students. For more information, email

Cape Cod House for Rent
This three-bedroom house with wrap-around deck is in the Brewster, Massachusetts, Highlands, a private, charming neighborhood centrally located on Cape Cod. A two-minute walk to the end of the road brings you to a small private beach on Seymour Pond, a clear lake with no motorized boats allowed that is perfect for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailboarding, and paddle boarding. A five-minute drive (or 10-minute mountain bike ride) takes you to mountain bike and hiking trails in the Punkhorn Wilderness, an extensive town conservation area that protects a large portion of Seymour Pond. And a safe, five-minute bike ride away is the popular Cape Cod Rail Trail that runs south to Harwich and Chatham, west to Dennis and Hyannis, and north to Orleans, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown.
