Alumnae Bulletin February 2010

From the Editor

Would you like to share your telling story about changing careers, reentering the workforce, or just saying “no” to retirement? How about volunteer work that led to a paid position? Have you faced sexism or ageism? In our May issue, we will launch a series of articles on career transitions, beginning with first jobs out of college for Bryn Mawr alumnae/i.

Please send a short account of your experience that addresses the how and why of the transition you made—as well as any internal struggles you may have dealt with and the outcome—to the Editor, Bryn Mawr Alumnae Bulletin, 101 North Merion Ave. Bryn Mawr, PA 19010-2899 or jtremble@brynmawr. edu.

All alumnae are invited to join us at Reunion this year on Saturday, May 29, 2010, for the launch of the year-long celebration of the College’s 125th Anniversary. This fun-filled day of performing and visual arts will include two ballets by Rebecca Kelly Dance Company to celebrate the reopening of Goodhart Hall and an art exhibit on the work of Red Grooms.

In this issue, the Alumnae Bulletin hosts the 2008–09 Annual Report of the College.

In our May issue we will also report on Haiti relief efforts; a documentary, “The Art of the Steal,” produced by Sheena Joyne ’98, on the impending move to Philadelphia of the Barnes Foundation; and the implications of the first literary history of American women writers by Elaine Cottler Showalter ’62.

Correction: a photo caption on page 23 of the November 2009 issue misidentified Alexandra Fenton ’08 as Amanda Davis ’08. Amanda is pictured on page 26.
