"We are too early on in assessing the damage," said Anna Marie Gewirtz, who assumed her new role as executive director of the Flynn just six weeks ago. "We are doing everything in our power to get things back in pristine condition and working order."

"I've always been the person [who] gets involved in different cultures because I feel that's the way I grow," said the University of Vermont sophomore.
