Behind the Name tag: Mail clerk Voner helps students get mail signed, sealed, delivered
While many students may not recognize her by name, they likely know Alice Voner as the mail clerk in the Smith Union Mail Center with long, flowing hair.
Voner is currently in her third year working in the Mail Center, and she said she is fond of her position because of its frequent interaction with students.
“My favorite part of the job is the students,” she said. “Some of them need to be mothered; some still need to be gently taught how to mail a letter. I get to still be a mom, basically.”
Jack Magee’s brings more to the table with new menu
Jack Magee’s Pub and Grill began satiating Bowdoin students’ late night desires for French fries and onion rings in 1995. Nine years later, Dining Services revamped the calzone-and-burger-joint fare, adding specials like Thai vegetable dumplings and the “El Grande” burrito to counteract competition with downtown establishments like Wild Oats Bakery and Café, according to a 2004 Orient article.
This year, the Pub ushered in a new semester with once-again updated fare: from the Tandoori Tempah Wrap with spicy eggplant relish to the already top-selling fish taco garnished with fresh avocado, shredded cabbage, salsa and green-onion mayo.
“The new options definitely make it more likely that I’ll grab something if I miss dinner,” said Charlotte Kleiman ’15.
