Summer 2014

In the Summer 2014 edition of Allegheny magazine, 2011 graduate Lindsey DiLoreto shares her story about working as a dedicated Peace Corps volunteer in Ukraine before and after the social upheaval that has rocked the Eastern European nation. Lindsey was airlifted out of Ukraine with other service volunteers and tells her tale from her McKean, Pa., home. Also, staff writer Heather L. Grubbs outlines the new course offerings for students to meet the needs of a changing world. In news off-campus, writer Kathleen Prosperi ’11 looks at a different approach to hiring employees that Jim Wible ’71 is trying. Wible hired a cohort of new Allegheny graduates in May in order to foster a greater degree of teamwork at his American Colors facility in Ohio. Plus President James H. Mullen, Jr., talks about his role as chair of the board of directors of the American Council on Education, and there are hundreds of ClassNOTES about your friends.
Here’s a note on the magazine cover: In September, we’re kicking off our Bicentennial celebration with the dedication of a new plaza and a yearlong series of events. It’s all part of Our Third Century Quest campaign to secure forever Allegheny’s rightful place as one of the great liberal arts colleges in the history of the United States. Please join us in the celebrations!
