Share Your Successes with Fellow Alums

Arcadia University graduates have gone on to do amazing things, from opening businesses and writing books to exhibiting art work and enjoying successful careers. Alumni are encouraged to share their story to be highlighted in a future Chronicles by emailing alumni@arcadia.edu.

Emily-ScottEmily Scott ’09 recently started her own business, noting that it involved “using all the wonderful knowledge I gained from my BA!” Compendium is a progressive independent designers’ boutique and collective that opened this past summer. The boutique is located in Swarthmore across from the train station. Visit the website at compendiumboutique.com.

Jenean-DouglasJenean Douglas ’82 has published her first book, From Darkness...To Light, a 31-day devotional for parents, available this month via Westbow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishing Company. “The book is about my journey with my twins who were diagnosed with autism at the age of three and a half years," says Douglas. "It also includes the stories of seven other women who share how God gave them peace in the midst of their storm."

Ellen Coleman ’69 invites alumni to attend an upcoming day trip to New York City on Saturday, Dec. 15. Tickets are $60 per person and donations are requested for the Breezy Point Disaster Relief Fund. For more information, visit Excursions From the Square's website.

Career Mentoring at Arcadia

professional-networkingAlumni Volunteer Career Mentors have been busy this month. The annual Professional Networking 101 took place on Thursday, Nov. 8. After some initial mingling between students and alumni mentors, Connie Grier ’07 , founder of The RESPECT Alliance, a non-profit corporation and CKG Consulting, LLC, spoke to students about the benefits and process of professional networking. Afterwards, alumni mentors shared their positive networking experiences. The evening ended with a networking session for students and mentors. Photos.

Many of the mentors in attendance are also involved with Arcadia’s Honors Program mentoring, which requires a commitment from both students and mentors to maintain contact with each other for the entire time the student is enrolled at the University. These mentors returned to campus on Nov. 11 for the second event held for the Honors Program this year.

The mentors were asked to share a Beaver College/Arcadia University memory with their mentee before enjoy brunch and a game of trivia. The afternoon concluded with a group community service project for Aid for Friends.
