Washington University Women’s Society volunteer Elaine Burkhardt (left) talks with Roberta and Bill Schnoor of Brookline, Mass., at the grand opening of the new Bear Necessities store Aug. 20 in Umrath House in the South 40. The Schnoors’ son Will is a member of the Class of 2013. Bear Necessities sells WUSTL apparel and gifts, birthday cakes and other items. All proceeds from the store — run by the Women’s Society, more than 600 women who serve as the University’s ambassadors in the community — help fund the Elizabeth Gray Danforth Scholarships and student projects.
