Beyond the Lab


Fostering a rich, supportive, and diverse community in which to study is high on the school’s agenda. Informal fall and winter gatherings promoted and encouraged fellowship among students.

A School Tradition — Celebrate Halloween

At Gerstner Sloan Kettering, Halloween is one of those holidays that requires a celebration. The scary, whimsical, and the funny came togther on Halloween evening to celebrate the fall holiday.

Third Annual Bowling Night

On January 14, the Gerstner Sloan Kettering Student Council held its third annual bowling night at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Live music fueled the competition as four teams went head-to-head in an all-or-nothing, two game, winner-take-all battle. As is tradition, teams were captained by members of Gerstner Sloan Kettering’s founding class. Jeff Smith’s team won this year’s night of bowling — pulling out ahead in the end.

Third Annual Ski Trip

In February, 30 students and their significant others traveled to Mount Snow, Vermont, for a weekend of skiing and bonding. Grouped by experience levels — first-time and seasoned skiers — chair-lift rides gave students the perfect venue for becoming better acquainted. All agreed that the trip was a wonderful experience — a tradition that should continue.
