Saint Vincent quarterly

embracing diversity

fall 2009

Message from P r e s i d e n t J i m T o w e y


erman monks of the Order of Saint Benedict came to Saint Vincent at the urging of an Irishman. Italians, Poles, Slovaks and others helped the Archabbey, College and Seminary become what it is today. Truly, where would Saint Vincent be without diversity? While demographic trends and changes in immigration may have made our corner of the Commonwealth nearly monolithic, you wouldn’t know it on our campus. For the last two years over 10% of the incoming freshmen came as members of racial or ethnic minorities, or as international students. Over 150 such students are enrolled here – an all-time record. The Quarterly’s cover photo introduces you to one of them – Claudia Arrunategui (pronounced “Ah-roo-nah-tay-gee”). She came to us from a middleclass family of five in Chiclayo, Peru – at age 16, no less. She is a Biology major who hopes to go to medical school in Europe after her graduation in May 2011. Claudia is active by any standard. In addition to studying in a difficult major in a second language, she is a member of the cross country team (her time in the 5K has improved by a couple of minutes and she now runs it “in the 21’s,” she says). She also works 10 hours a week on campus to make ends meet. She had a 3.3 GPA her first semester! She was homesick at first but a birthday cake brought to her dorm room on the morning of her 17th birthday introduced her to Benedictine hospitality. When I asked Claudia what she likes about Saint Vincent, she didn’t hesitate. “I have met people from other countries – Romania, China, Nepal, Brazil, Slovakia, China, and Taiwan. And, oh yeah, America. I’ve learned about different cultures and backgrounds.” As you read this issue, I hope you rejoice with me in the diversity that characterizes life at Saint Vincent College. Our differences strengthen us. If we surround ourselves only with people who look like us, think like us, and pray like us, we may lose out on some of life’s greatest adventures. Our founder Boniface Wimmer knew that – and Claudia Arrunategui knows that, too!

Embracing the Rich Dimensions of Diversity by T heresa S ch w ab


n its commitment to recruiting students, faculty and staff across a range of cultures, and religious, ethnic and racial backgrounds, Saint Vincent College is fostering a campus community that is increasingly diverse and ever more representative of the global community. What is striking is the critical support this effort is lending to the College’s longstanding core mission. Ever since its founding in 1846 when Boniface Wimmer and his Benedictine confreres from Bavaria settled at Saint Vincent, visitors from abroad have been welcomed. Now more than ever, the College community is embracing diversity in its student body, faculty and staff.

fall 2009











Vice President for Student Affairs Mary L. Collins says that “a commitment to valuing diversity is woven into Saint Vincent College from our foundation as a Catholic, Benedictine institution to our current Strategic Plan, which includes the goal of minority student support. We strive in many ways to make that goal a reality.” She notes for example that “there are discussions about respect for others in our residence life formation so that respect for others can be communicated through our on-campus life experience, and many clubs organize events and engage in activities that promote diversity. There are numerous other examples across campus that demonstrate our goal to increase our respect and appreciation of the many wonderful people Mary L. Collins who make Saint Vincent the special place it is.” Diversity covers not only ethnic and racial differences, but also geographical background, religion, age and gender. The special observance last year of the 25th anniversary of coeducation, for example, underscored the increased contribution of women in the college’s history. When women were invited to become equal partners in the academic community with the advent of coeducation, it was a significant change for the College. Saint Vincent today continues to reflect a female presence. Tracy H. Branson has joined the administration as Vice President for Institutional Advancement. She is charged with


s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

managing the College’s development programs and staff, and increasing support from alumni and other donors. She becomes the second female vice president after Mary Collins, Vice President for Student Affairs. This fall Saint Vincent also welcomed full-time mathematics assistant professor Dr. Christina Maher, and there are now female faculty in all the College academic departments. And a former international student returned to campus this fall semester as an instructor in anthropology. Hungarian born Mariann Vaczi, a 2004 graduate, originally attended Saint Vincent on a basketball scholarship. She came to Saint Vincent never having visited the U.S., and proved to be an excellent student. With the assistance of Saint Vincent’s The Class of 1968/Rev. Ronald R. Gorka scholarship, and the opportunity to travel, this anthropology major found her academic area of interest, specializing in Basque studies, especially the role of sports and sports fans in the Basque culture. She has gone on to earn three master’s degrees in Hungary and is currently a doctoral student at the University of Nevada, Reno, which has a Center for Basque Studies. Next semester, she will return to the Basque area for more research so she can complete her doctoral Dr. Osaro Airen dissertation. “I think coming to Saint Vincent was good for me because it gave me confidence in myself, and gave me the foundation for all my studies that have followed. It started me on my way.”

Educators who advance diversity as essential to educational excellence believe that students exposed to a racially mixed and diverse environment benefit in many ways. Researchers point out that these students demonstrate enhanced intellectual development, improved social self-confidence, a growth in their academic skills and

increased civic engagement. A diverse community of scholars surely is a testament to the country’s unique democratic ideals, and people of faith have been reminded since childhood to embrace the concept of community. At Saint Vincent last year, minority and international students represented 8.1 percent of the student

Dr. Anis Maize (right) with his son and Saint Vincent student Kareem.

r. Anis Maize, chairperson and professor of physics, was born in Egypt, about an hour from Cairo. Even as a young student, Dr. Maize was interested in science. He enrolled at Cairo University and earned a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering and a second bachelor of science in physics. He later pursued a master of science degree in solid state physics at the University of Louisville and a Ph.D. at Purdue University, where he completed his doctoral dissertation on nuclear physics, using electron beams to study the nucleus. He was a post-doctoral research associate at Brown University from 1984 to 1987. After brief teaching assignments at the University of Rhode Island and the University of Maine, he joined the Saint Vincent College Physics Department in 1990, being drawn to the idea of a small school and the special attention that can be given to students. His son, Kareem is a junior studying computing and information science at Saint Vincent. Dr. Maize hopes that he can continue to be helpful to students in appreciating a world view beyond the region.

population—a steady increase over the previous four years. Minority and international students comprise 11 percent of the freshman class this fall, and the on-campus population of minority and international students has grown to nearly 200. Last year Dr. Osaro Airen was named to the newly-created position of Assistant Director of Diversity and Engagement. This southern California native, whose family is first generation Nigerian, assists international students and students of color in adjusting to their new environment. Dr. Airen provides leadership to the Office of Multicultural Student Life, which operates under the auspices of Student Affairs. The multicultural


s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

office is run with the philosophy that “diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It is about understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each individual.” He meets with students of color and serves as advisor to the Multicultural Student Coalition and the International Student Union. He provides academic guidance through Academic Affairs, and is involved in the planning of special events such as the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day in January, International Week in November, and Black History Month in February. For the past few years, the international students have had a

Dean of Studies Alice Kaylor says this growing population has unique needs, and the orientation is designed to help them familiarize themselves with all the academic and student services available. It is her job to ensure that all students (including the increasingly international population of seminarians) comply with all governmental visa regulations. “There is a lot of interest in Asian countries in having degrees from U.S. colleges,” Dean Kaylor says, and now the

availability of master’s degree programs is even more of an enticement to come to Saint Vincent. “Some international students have connections to the area, but others choose Saint Vincent for a variety of reasons ,” Dean Kaylor notes. One student from Jamaica said her mother had found Saint Vincent on the Internet and thought it would be a nice and safe place for her daughter. Dean Kaylor offers help with course selection.

public relations, because she did not think she understood American culture well enough, but Dean Kaylor let her know that her unique perspective would benefit the class. “We need people to tell us what the world is like,” she told the student. This year’s international students come from Taiwan, China, Ireland, Italy, England, Jamaica and the West Indies. This fall’s incoming class also saw increased representation from eastern Pennsylvania, and a full 23 percent of the incoming freshman class has come from out of state. Dave Collins, Assistant Vice President for Admission, says enrollment this year is the result of the collective efforts of dedicated counselors, active alumni (particularly in Long Island, New York) faculty and coaches. Eastern Pennsylvania— especially Philadelphia and Bucks, Delaware and Montgomery counties—is


s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

also proving to be fertile ground for recruiting. “This increased level of diversity offers our students from western Pennsylvania an opportunity to interact with students from different types of backgrounds,” Collins points out. Minority and Hispanic representation of students has been boosted by students coming from St. Benedict’s Preparatory School in Newark, New Jersey and the Milton Hershey School. There are also international recruiting agreements with colleges and universities in China, Korea and Taiwan. Simon Clayton of Newark is one of the students enrolled from St. Benedict’s. Simon is of African American and Puerto Rican descent. He feels that the choice of Saint Vincent has been a good one for him. The sophomore psychology major says he is enjoying his time at the college, where he serves

Diversity Spans the Ages


hen author Dr. Jerome Oetgen was a guest of the college last spring as a Threshold series lecturer he talked about the heritage of Boniface Wimmer. Dr. Oetgen, who has written two books about Wimmer, posed a question for his audience. What is a Benedictine community? Then Dr. Oetgen offered this answer: “Saint Benedict calls it a ‘school of the Lord’s service.’ But for him, the Latin word ‘schola’—school—signified not a building or an institution, not a college or a seminary...but rather a family—a family whose members include the young and the old, the wise and the inexperienced, the elders and those who come to learn the wisdom of the elders. Such a school as this exists so that its members may serve the Lord by serving one another. It exists for the purpose of passing on a sacred inheritance, an ancient wisdom, from one generation to the next.” Talking about diversity in terms of Saint Vincent certainly must touch upon the Saint Vincent monastic family which spans the ages—literally from the youngest college graduates, who just joined the monastic community and are the newest members of the family, to the longest living monk in the history of the Archabbey, Fr. Flavian Yelinko, O.S.B., who Fr. Flavian Yelinko, O.S.B., celebrated his 103rd birthday this past Sept. 2. (In his now 103-years-old. long life, he has met every Archabbot in Saint Vincent’s history, except Boniface Wimmer, who died in 1887.) With an average age of 55, and large groups of members in the community in their 50-60s, as well as their 20s, (such as former collegiates and now junior monks, Br. Michael Antonacci, O.S.B., and Br. Isidore Minerd, O.S.B.), the community is actually younger than many other monastic communities and doing well with vocations. The older monks offer guidance in the how-tos of community life in general for younger members of the community, says Fr. Justin Matro, O.S.B., Seminary Rector, who also sees value in the presence of the monastic community for the seminarians. When Saint Vincent College students join the monks for prayer, enroll in classes taught by the Benedictines and learn about the monastic community, the students come to appreciate the lives of these men of faith, of so many different backgrounds and ages. The “sacred inheritance” continues. As Dr. Oetgen told his audience: “From the time of Saint Benedict and since then for the past 15 centuries, the Benedictine family has in a very real sense been both inclusive and diverse. It has embraced multitudes.”

in the student Senate, as chairman of the student alumni committee and as a member of the college chorus. At the age of nine, Simon was playing outside his Newark home when two nuns asked him if he would like to attend summer camp. The sisters were members of the Missionaries of Charity, Mother Teresa of Calcutta’s order. He

did, indeed, want to go to camp, and later he was asked if he wanted to attend a Catholic school, which he did, ending up as a very successful student at St. Benedict’s. Through that school, he visited Saint Vincent and decided he wanted to attend (with hopes of becoming the first in his family to graduate from a four-year college). Now he finds that his life will again intersect providentially with the sisters. In May, Simon hopes to join other students visiting Calcutta with College President

Jim Towey to work with Mother Teresa’s order there. “Now nine years later, I’ll be helping the sisters,” he says with delight. In the classroom, the sense of international culture can be found in the recent visit by a Cuban-born poet. The visit was arranged by English assistant professor Michelle GilMontero, herself a poet and wife of a poet from Argentina. Gil-Montero’s personal connection made it possible for internationally-known poet, José Kozer, the leading Cuban-born poet of his generation, to serve a week-long poetry residency teaching classes, offering a bilingual poetry reading and conducting a poetry workshop. One of the most influential poets in Latin America, Kozer has published 49 books of poetry and two books of prose. In the spring semester, Gil-Montero will teach a Literary Translation class, a workshop designed to offer students experience in translating poetry from a language they have studied. This semester saw Dr. Rubin Pillay of South Africa, who holds both a Ph.D. and M.D. and operates a large private medical clinic in his homeland, welcomed as an assistant professor of management in the McKenna School. Also new to Saint Vincent this semester was Ying Ziao of China, as associate professor of modern and classical languages. Fr. Benoit Alloggia, O.S.B., a native of France fluent in four languages, has returned to Saint Vincent as instructor of modern and classical languages following his ordination in Rome this summer. Interestingly enough, when faculty positions are posted, a growing number

of applications come from abroad, says Dr. John Smetanka, Vice President for Academic Affairs. “We get a large number of applications, much larger than in the past from other countries. For one position, there were 80 applications, with 40 coming from China, Russia and Ukraine.” Saint Vincent faculty members also offer students an international experience by their own commitment to teaching abroad, traveling and returning to share a global perspective with their students. Dean of the McKenna School, Dr. Gary Quinlivan, was a Fulbright Scholar at Shandong University in the People’s Republic of China. When he returns to China in January, it will have been his 23rd visit to that country. “It gives you so much in terms of practical experience to offer in the classroom. Students ask questions about developments abroad, and you’ve experienced them firsthand,” he says. “The entire business world is international now,” Dr. Quinlivan says. “I just got an e-mail from a student who has been assigned to head a plant in Mexico. Our students can get jobs anywhere in the world; it is a big plus to have a large portion of international students for networking.” The international connections that the College has maintained are providing opportunities for Saint Vincent students, he notes. The relationship with Fu Jen Catholic University in Taiwan, for example, has been successful. One Fu Jen graduate, Frank Yuan, now a successful businessman in hotels in China, has extended the opportunity for aspiring

hotel managers to intern at his hotels. Four or five students are expected to participate this spring semester, Dr. Quinlivan says. Kennametal has been helpful with international internships as well, the dean says. And international travel continues to enrich academic scholarship. Br. Elliott Maloney, O.S.B., professor of theology, is working on a second book, looking at life in the spirit of St. Paul. He explains that his extensive travel to Brazil and the intense Christian family life he witnessed, has informed his scholarship and enriched his teaching. He has also traveled to Africa, and is preparing an online course for Nigerians. Flags of all the countries represented by students who have studied at Saint Vincent make a colorful display in the cafeteria. There is even an international flair in the cafeteria, which weekly

It is in evidence at school events, in the dining hall, and on the playing fields.

H A Standing Ovation for

Joe Reilly By J u l i a Cava l l o


n June 27, 2009 the lights dimmed, the curtains closed for the last time. The final line of Joe Reilly’s play was spoken as he went home to grace the happiest play of all in heaven. It is hard to think of Joe without thinking about plays and movies, his stories and your stories. He loved them all. He had great affection for people and their stories, especially when he could make people laugh. Joe loved to tell stories about his time in the Army, school days at Holy Innocents in Pittsburgh’s Sheraden neighborhood and the early Saint Vincent Theatre while sitting on a blue chair at a table covered with red and white checkers and holding a handful of popcorn at the Summer Theatre Cabaret. “He loved human nature, human folly and especially stories that showed himself in a ridiculous light,” his daughter, Colleen, remarked in describing her father’s favorite kind of stories. His start in the theatre is itself a good story. In the fall of 1964, Joe was a Saint Vincent Seminary student who had to go in to Pittsburgh to register for the draft. He went down near the willow trees that line Fraser Purchase Road and began hitchhiking.

“My father had great respect for actors, both student and professional, because he knew how difficult it is to act and what courage it takes to be on stage,” Colleen said. “He really liked to see actors work and he loved helping them to do the best they could.” The respect that students and professional actors had for Joe was evident. An actor who performed here this past summer described Saint Vincent Theatre as “actor heaven.” A student enrolled in Joe’s acting class last spring commented, “Mr. Reilly is one of the best teachers I have had at Saint Vincent College. He is very personable, patient with the students and treats everyone with respect, while making the class fun and educational at the same time.” Another student said, “Mr. Reilly has been a fantastic teacher and clearly knows and loves what he teaches. He always has good feedback for us

students and is not afraid to challenge us. He makes the course interesting and is very interested in seeing his students succeed.” In every moment of every rehearsal and every production Joe was passionate. He loved the reaction of the audience and often watched the people as much as he did the play. He brought life to the stage, and also a lot of fun. After Fr. Tom passed away in June 2008, Joe hoped that another Benedictine would be appointed to the Theatre to maintain the Benedictine spirit of the place. In July, Joe’s hope came true when Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., assigned Br. Bonaventure Curtis, O.S.B., to the College for the appointment as Executive Director of Saint Vincent Summer Theatre. Saint Vincent Theatre will continue to build on the influence of Joe and Fr. Tom and their legacy will endure for many years to come. Joe, Fr. Tom, take a bow – you deserve a standing ovation!

Why Saint Vincent “Made The Grade” For 14 Valedictorians


ach spring, thousands of teenagers are faced with the challenge of choosing the “perfect college.” There’s no question that the brightest students have access to a world of possibilities, but for 14 high school valedictorians (as well as many other exceptional students who had grade point averages of 4.0 or higher), the decision to come to Saint Vincent was an easy one. This year, the College warmly welcomed valedictorians Emily Amond, Lucas Briola, Bethanne Dishler, Amber Elder, Colleen Fisher, Emily Helbling, Kaitlyn Hlebechuk, Diana Hric, Amanda Kasardo, Josh Martin, Melissa Mason, Phillip Meyerhofer, Neal Nanassy and Kasey Radicic to its freshman class. Despite diverse backgrounds and career objectives, these accomplished young people were attracted to the College for reasons

that can be best categorized as “the three Cs”: curricula, campus and community. For students who are passionately committed to scholarly pursuits, it is only natural to want to attend an institution that is focused on academic excellence, and many of the valedictorians were impressed by the quality and variety of Saint Vincent’s course offerings. Not only are these students excited about the classes that are related to their majors (which are predominantly in the areas of math and science), but they are also eager to explore other subjects, like foreign language, English and even philosophy, that are part of Saint Vincent’s core curriculum. After carefully considering over a dozen institutions, Colleen Fisher, who hopes to become a high school teacher, had no trouble

ruling out her other choices. “There was no reason to say ‘no,” she said. “I knew this is where I wanted to be.” Unlike the other education programs Fisher explored, Saint Vincent’s stood out because she can “become an expert in her subject” by majoring in chemistry (which she feels is key to being an effective teacher) and start her education courses this year. And it is no surprise that these freshmen were also drawn to the College because of its beautiful campus. Unlike urban institutions that have buildings scattered over several blocks or are too representative of the “hustle and bustle” of city life, Saint Vincent’s campus is like its own little world, where students can both focus on their studies and become involved with a wide range of activities.

about Saint Vincent is its close-knit community. From athletic teams to campus ministry and clubs, it is evident that long-lasting friendships lie at the heart of the College. In fact, students often use the word “family” to describe the meaningful connections they develop with professors, administrators, monks and each other. Visitors quickly become aware of this camaraderie, and prospective students long to share in it, as was the case with a number of the valedictorians. “I knew I wanted to come to Saint Vincent after visiting 18

an integral part of the lives of several of these freshmen, and it played a major role during the college selection process. For instance, Lucas Briola was introduced to Saint Vincent by his grandfather, who enrolled prior to World War II. Both close to home and affordable, Saint Vincent was an attractive prospect because it allowed him to double major in math and theology (he is considering either teaching or priesthood), and join the cross country team. Now in the middle of the semester, the freshmen seem to have made a seamless transition into the college experience. This first year represents a new life of independence, but not one that lacks the sense of belonging. “It feels like home,” said Helbling. And for many students, Saint Vincent always will.

Faculty Highlights By J ulia C avallo

Saint Vincent College added four new full-time faculty members for the 2009-2010 academic year. Each professor has a unique background and special qualities to bring to Saint Vincent. Students will have the opportunity to learn from the very best.

Making philosophy personal

Dr. Margaret Watkins has met interesting people all over the world and published eight journal articles, thanks in large part to her interest in an 18th century philosopher, David Hume. She is particularly interested in Hume’s moral philosophy and the intersection between moral and aesthetic theory. Though philosophy is her specialty, Dr. Watkins realizes philosophy can intimidate students. She tries to show them that it applies to interests that they already have. In the classroom, Dr. Watkins likes to give students a topic, such as friendship, to start a conversation and allow them to interact with each other. She believes that interaction is often where some of the best learning occurs. “Students have different experiences that they bring to the class, and they are able to learn from each other. It is important that they learn these philosophical theories and carry them into their everyday encounters.” Her goal is to make students more reflective in order to think of philosophies they are learning and apply them to real life experiences. “I’m not a professor who pours information into students, but models something for them and learns something from them too. It is a joint enterprise.”

Embracing a student-centered approach to teaching

Dr. Christina Maher’s eyes light up when she hears a student say, “I don’t like math.” She believes that everyone is able to do math, but many people have had a bad experience in a particular class that may have soured them on the subject. “I find it to be very rewarding to work with students who don’t like math. They think they can’t do math, then they begin to realize that they really can do it.” She promotes an open-door policy with students. The Notre Dame graduate encourages students to come to her office even when they think that they have a very simple question. Dr. Maher believes her openness to students goes hand in hand with the Catholic, Benedictine traditions of Saint Vincent. Her student-centered approach to teaching enables her to use everyday situations to explain mathematical concepts during classes. For example, she uses games that students like to play. When describing simple games like tic-tac-toe, Dr. Maher relates mathematical concepts that are closely related to the strategies and techniques of the game. The assistant professor of mathematics has discovered that even outside the classroom, people are interested in learning how mathematics relates to simple games like tic-tac-toe.

The instructor in communication values the opinions of students, recognizing that each student has his or her own motivations and diverse background. “I can meet them where they are and provide support, assistance, and guidance all because of my own journey through the field.” Robinson hopes to involve his

students in critical and ethical analysis of mass communication particularly in advertising and media technology. “Hopefully students in my classes begin to gain critical thinking tools so they are informed consumers and ethical producers of mass media.” At the conclusion of the journey at Saint Vincent, Robinson hopes that he has prepared his students to make a positive contribution on communication. “When students get in to the industry and they face a dilemma, my goal is that the ethical perspective they have developed at Saint Vincent will enable them to react in a positive way and affect positive change in the mass communication industry.”

Sharing his experiences as physician and healthcare manager Dr. Rubin Pillay looks forward to the challenge of his new position as associate professor of management. The South African native is passionate about health care, both from the perspective of a veteran physician, and as a health services manager. “The business of health care management is big everywhere. There are different challenges you face in health care in developing countries versus first-world countries. No matter where it is, the challenges in health care are in essence management issues.” Dr. Pillay hopes to formalize a study abroad relationship between Saint Vincent and South Africa. He likes to use case studies in his management classes to make the theories come alive. He explains that by formalizing a relationship with a South African institution, Saint Vincent students would have the opportunity for a practical and experiential component to their management studies. Dr. Pillay continue to make a difference in South African health care through his research evaluating health management. He believes that Saint Vincent students can gain valuable experiences by aiding him in his work, and also traveling to the country. A study abroad experience would allow Saint Vincent students to put their own learning into practice by helping small businesses and entrepreneurs get off the ground, and aiding in the development of business plans or the implementation of a marketing strategy.

Final Cuts By J im B erger


t only takes one visit to the Saint Vincent athletic website to realize that the Bearcats are ahead of the curve in regard to the use of multimedia in promoting and publicizing the school’s 20 varsity teams. With ever-advancing technology and the prevalence of video throughout the World Wide Web, Saint Vincent sports information director Jeff Zidek has ensured that the Bearcats will remain on the cutting edge of sports promotion. Thanks to the high interest in sports on campus, as well as an eager and enthusiastic pool of student workers, sports videos have been a hit. Athletics

videos average over 5,000 views per month. As popularity for the videos grows, so does student interest in working for the Sports Information department, where they receive invaluable real-world experience. “When a student comes to work for me, I stop treating them as a student and try to give them a realistic workforce experience,” Zidek said. “So, by not treating this as a traditional student job, I feel we are giving them a better education.” Erik Kaminski, who worked in the sports information department for four years before graduating in 2005, agrees wholeheartedly with Zidek. “It wasn’t like a normal work-study

job where you had to file papers for two hours or answer phone calls,” he said. “It really gave me a hands-on opportunity that I wouldn’t have gotten from just watching a game as a fan.” Kaminski is entering his second year as assistant sports information director at Mercyhurst College, after working in the same capacity at Robert Morris University and Goucher College following graduation. Eddie Coughlan, a 2008 graduate, was integral in editing and producing a number of the first online highlight reels. Though he fully embraced the role, he never thought it would become so successful so quickly. “I never expected the web videos to explode like they have,” he said. “Back then, it was just about getting some exposure for our athletic department

and getting highlights to the athletes and their parents who may not have been able to make it to every game. Seeing how it has evolved is amazing.” Coughlan is currently employed as production coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens, where is he in charge of all of the video that goes onto the team’s official website. Early in 2009, Zidek created a Bearcat athletics page on the popular internet site Featuring highlights of almost every Saint Vincent varsity sporting event from throughout the year, as well as numerous other features including interviews of studentathletes and coaches, the site became an immediate hit, so much so that Zidek was asked to give a presentation on the benefits of YouTube for college athletics at the annual College Sports Information Directors of America in San Antonio, Texas in late June. “The presentation was extremely wellreceived,” he said. “I continue to get calls and e-mail from my colleagues at schools from all over with questions on how to do what we do at Saint Vincent.” “Saint Vincent is doing things in video that a lot of Division-I institutions aren’t,” said Kaminski. “The office has come a long way since my early days there, and it looks like it’s continuing to go in the right direction.” Former Sports Information Student Workers Jason Seidling (left) and Conner Gilbert (right) were recently hired by the Pittsburgh Penguins as a writer for the web and Penn State-Altoona as Sports Information Director respectively.

A Conversation with

Herb Boyer


r. Herbert W. Boyer, C’58, D’81, is among Saint Vincent College’s most notable alumni, having received international recognition throughout his career for the pivotal role he played in the creation of the biotechnology industry and the founding of the pharmaceutical firm Genentech that utilized his DNA-splitting technology to pioneer numerous lifesaving drugs. Despite his success, he admitted to having one regret. “I wish I had asked more questions when I was here,” he told President Jim Towey and student Jess Salandro during a recent visit to campus with his family. Relaxing at an afternoon Pittsburgh Steelers practice on August 11 with his wife Grace, son Ethan, daughter-inlaw Laura, and granddaughters Natalie and Grace, he took a few minutes to share some memories about the undergraduate education he received at Saint Vincent as a student commuting from nearby Derry. Asked about his fondest memory of Saint Vincent, he jokingly replied, “When I graduated.” He recalled a daily routine of hitchhiking or riding the bus to campus—later he rode with his wife’s brother and split the cost of gas, to demanding classes. He told of having a locker that was his base of operations and of wearing a jacket and tie. “I had

would put your hands behind your back and he would place some of the 206 bones of the body in your hand, one by one. You had to feel it and identify which one it was and whether it was from the left side or the right side of the body. There is only one bone in your body that is symmetrical and that is the hyoid bone in the bottom of your skull so that was the

When I read that chapter and presented it, I knew I was going to do that.” tricky one—so everyone got a hyoid bone. We called Fr. Owen “The Frog” because he taught frog anatomy.” “My physics professor was Fr. Roland—we called him Rocky—he was a small, wiry man,” he continued. “The faculty were all tough and were really characters. There was no grade inflation. I remember the worst class I ever took was a philosophy course in Metaphysics. I just didn’t get it. I had no idea—so I flunked Metaphysics. Years later when I was at Saint Vincent to speak I told the Archabbot that I had tried to insert some philosophy into my remarks and asked if it might be possible to go back and change my Metaphysics grade to a C.” “It was Fr. Joel Lieb who really sparked my interest in DNA,” Boyer said. “It was sort of an accident. I 26

had taken an elective course in cell physiology and, as part of the course, we had to give a seminar—it was a small class, maybe ten students. We were assigned a chapter on which to give a seminar and I was assigned a chapter on the structure of DNA which was just getting into textbooks at that time, 1957. I was interested in genetics but had only read about the standard fruit fly experiments. When I read that chapter and presented it, I knew I was going to do that. It had such heuristic value. It explained everything. Now, it has become so complex.” “We also had an economics professor,” Boyer continued. “He was sort of a dapper guy who would wear a suit and scarf but he was so tough—Fr. ArmandJean Baldwin. We called him the Purple Shaft—he wore a cape and had this very continental panache about him. The Benedictines were all terrific and were all characters in their own way.” While a student, he had a part-time job on campus working for Fr. Tom Devereux on the stage crew. “We used to play gin rummy offstage during performances,” he said. Now, Herb Boyer’s name is attached to the School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computing, an announcement that was made during Commencement in 2007 in the presence of that year’s speaker, President George W. Bush. “It is very humbling,” he admitted, “but it’s not something I really enjoy. President Towey and Archabbot Douglas convinced me that it would help the School to do that, so I agreed.” Enrollment in the Boyer School has steadily increased, with 38% of this year’s freshman class choosing a major there.

Grand Challenges for Engineering

By d r . p a u l f o l l a n s b e e James F. Will Professor of Engineering Science


eriodically, technical communities come together to identify the highest priority technical challenges in the coming years. Identifying these topics helps to define investment opportunities, research directions, unique partnering relationships, and future training requirements. In 2008, the National Academy of Engineering issued a report entitled Grand Challenges for Engineering listing 14 such topics (see sidebar on page 28).

Fall 2009


The Engineering Grand Challenges represent more than a timely listing of research topics. Rather, they comprise challenges to the health and economic competitiveness of our country. Each of these challenges carries some degree of urgency. Many of today’s students likely will join professions that directly or indirectly impact these grand challenges. Part of our responsibility as educators at Saint Vincent College is to prepare students both for the opportunity and responsibility posed by these grand challenges. I was trained as a mechanical engineer (Duke, BSE 1972), but early in my undergraduate education, my interests were drawn to the materials science and engineering discipline (CMU, PhD 1981). My passion for materials first developed as a sophomore at Duke University during an introductory materials course taught by a seasoned professor who had served as an engineer at Pratt & Engineering’s 14 Grand Whitney Aircraft. I have since had an opportunity to Challenges practice as a materials scientist and engineer at Los Alamos National Laboratory, General Electric Global Defined by U.S. National Academy R&D Center, Howmet Castings (an Alcoa business), of Engineering, 2008 and Pratt and Whitney Aircraft. Sustainability Make solar energy affordable* Commercialize fusion energy* Develop carbon sequestration* Manage the nitrogen cycle* Improved Living Enhance virtual reality Advance personalized learning Engineer tools for scientific discovery* Health Provide access to clean water* Restore / improve urban infrastructure* Advance health informatics Engineer better medicines* Reverse-engineer the brain Reduced Vulnerability Prevent nuclear terror* Secure cyberspace

Two seminal studies commissioned by the National Research Council—one of which was recently * Special role for materials science released—have helped to chart research directions in and engineering the field of materials science and engineering. The first study was initiated in the mid 1980s at a time when the materials field was expanding rapidly. Advances in micro-electronics, including the “Moore’s Law” increase in number of transistors that can be placed on an integrated circuit (which in turn relates to storage capacity, processing speed, etc., in our computers), increasingly efficient air travel (due to increasing thrust to weight ratios in aircraft engines and the development of high temperature materials and coatings), and artificial joint materials and technologies are but a few examples of advances during the latter third of the 20th century that


s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

were enabled by materials technologies. The NRC wisely commissioned the 1986 study under the co-leadership of Praveen Chaudhari (IBM) and Merton Flemings (MIT) to set the stage for further coordination in the materials discipline. One of the main recommendations of the report, entitled Materials Science and Engineering for the 1990s—Maintaining Competitiveness in the Age of Materials, 1989, was that materials engineers need to understand the relationship between chemistry (composition), processing and structure, and performance of the system. That is, the composition of a material, the manner in which it is processed, and the resulting structure (microstructure) are inter-related factors that dictate how well a material performs. The original materials “tetrahedron” illustrates this interdependence. Simple as it appears today, this concept reinforced to the materials engineer the need to specify more than the chemistry of a material for it to optimally serve an intended application. And, it reinforced to the materials scientist that the basis of the interdependencies were worthy of continued study. The report’s recommendations Performance were particularly relevant to the invention and synthesis of new materials for new applications, e.g., solar conversion, energy storage, drug delivery, light weight automobile engines, etc. My own research during the 1980s and 1990s, which I am now able to resume at Saint Vincent College, benefited from the Chemistry recommendations from this NRC study. I was brought to Los Alamos National Properties Laboratory (LANL) in 1981 to develop a research program in the area of deformation Structure dynamics, which is the study of the strength and fracture resistance of materials when exposed to very fast impact events. The availability of very sophisticated test equipment at LANL allowed me to make fundamental measurements of how the strength of a metal varies with the rate at which the metal is stressed. Engineers commonly probe the variation of strength with temperature; my measurements complemented this data and allowed a more fundamental analysis of the origin of kinetic laws and the development of mathematical equations that engineers could use to predict a metal’s strength in, for instance, a complicated impact scenario. My work probed the relationship between strength (as the performance metric) and a metal’s structure and processing history. The research by my team during the 1980s and 1990s was one of many research efforts to increase understanding of the connections between a material’s composition, processing, structure, and performance. Computational modeling and simulation grew in importance in design as engineers sought to take advantage of these interrelations in design of new components and systems.


fall 2009


The realized importance of high technology materials to the U. S. economy led to another National Research Council study in 2006. In general, products using advanced materials are high-value products that yield high manufacturing returns (profits) and high paying jobs critical to national economic competitiveness. With strong participation from the automobile, aerospace, and materials supplier industries, the report, issued in 2008, called for increased integration of the materials design tools and new simulation and characterization tools that more thoroughly account for the material’s microstructure and the variation of the microstructure with processing and service. In fact, the report, entitled Integrated Computational Materials Engineering—A Transformational Discipline for Improved Competitiveness and National Security, draws a parallel between materials and the emerging bioinformatics discipline. While I’m not convinced a materials informatics discipline is required, I do believe that many of the engineering grand challenges defined by the NRC study in 2008 will go unsolved without the development and introduction of new materials. For example, the efficient conversion of solar energy requires inexpensive materials, based on readily available raw materials, which will convert a photon of light energy to electrical energy at high efficiencies. Commercialized fusion energy will require development of containment materials which will withstand high temperature, erosive, and high radiation environments. The design of molecules that will bond with a carbon dioxide

Part of our responsibility as educators at Saint Vincent College is to prepare students both for the opportunity and responsibility posed by these grand challenges. molecule or even catalyze the conversion of the harmful carbon dioxide molecule into something more inert is one concept for sequestration (required to reduce the rate of global warming). Restoring / improving urban infrastructure is a huge materials problem demanding corrosion and wear resistant materials with an eye toward the total life cycle impact of processing and ultimate disposal. “Engineer better medicines” will entail, among other attributes, the design of molecules that target cancer cells or specific viruses within the body. With nuclear energy considered to be one of many sources of global energy in light of exponentially increasing demand, the likelihood of nuclear terror must be mitigated through design of fuel cycles that yield undesirable (to the terrorist) spent fuel resources, while reducing the volume of hazardous waste. Advanced materials will be part of the solution to each of these grand challenges. 30

fall sports preview By J i m B e r g e r


hough the 2009-10 academic year is in its infancy, the fall sports schedule is in full swing, with eight Bearcat athletic teams. The Bearcat football team, in its third year back after a 45-year hiatus, looks to have experience on its favor, as 80 players, including 21 of 22 regular starters, return from a season ago—a

far cry from the past two seasons when the vast majority of starters were freshmen and sophomores. Six All-Presidents’ Athletic Conference recipients return for head coach Bob Colbert’s squad, led by sophomore tailback Jairus Marlow, who led the conference in yards per carry (7.8) last year and scored six

touchdowns. The team also returns a pair of quarterbacks who split duties last season in sophomores Kevin Corona and Jake Smith, while the entire starting defensive unit from 2008 is also back, including junior safety Josh Diamond and sophomore linebacker Anthony Johnson, who finished fourth and fifth, respectively, in tackles in the PAC last year. The Lady Bearcat tennis team, in the midst of its most successful stretch in team history, looks for another exceptional season under head coach Jim Bendel. Last year, the team went 13-3-1, and enjoyed a programrecord 10-match winning streak midway through the season. Though both of the team’s top players from last year—Kim Meier and Megan Wells—have graduated, Bendel’s team returns a number of quality players. Sophomores Alexis Cup and Emily Morris combined to go 20-6 in singles play last season, while junior Nicole Peer went a perfect 8-0 and senior Brittany Vignero 6-0. Doubles play was also solid for SVC, as the Lady Bearcats won 31 of 45 doubles matches in 2008.

fall 2009


The men’s soccer team, coached by Keith Harmon, looks to bounce back from a disappointing 7-11 2008 season, with seven losses coming by one goal. Senior forward Luis Rodriguez looks to anchor the team’s offense, after leading the PAC in scoring in each of the past two seasons, including a 15-goal, twoassist output in 2008. He enters the 2009 season fifth all-time in program history in career goals scored, and should quickly ascend up the list over the course of the season.

The twin brother tandem of seniors Matt Fecik and Ben Fecik is also back for Harmon after each was named AllConference in 2008. Matt is expected to be an anchor on the team’s defense, while Ben looks to team with Rodriguez to give the team a solid one-two goal scoring punch on offense. Head coach Becky Stewart’s women’s soccer team returns seven starters from last season, and the Lady Bearcats hope to improve upon its 7-9-3 record in 2008. Senior co-captains Alex Shasko and Ashley Bartko—both three-year

s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

starters—are two of the key players for the Lady Bearcats. Shasko, a midfielder, is a three-time all-conference selection, while Bartko, known for her intense, physical brand of play has anchored the defense throughout her career. Junior Leanna Seminsky is the team’s leading returning scorer, as she scored seven goals in 2008, while another junior, Michelle Stepien, has seen her role continually increase on offense throughout her career, and will be looked upon as another goalscoring threat for the Lady Bearcats. Sophomore Logan Gamelier, who played every minute of every game as a freshman, will team with Bartko on defense, while Kirstie Mills, another sophomore, returns in goal, after placing in the top five in the PAC in 2008 in saves and save percentage. The Lady Bearcat volleyball team, coached by Sue Hozak, looks to continue its winning tradition in 2009, as the team went 25-7 last season, and has amassed a record of 125-36 over the past five seasons. All but two starters return from last year, led by allconference outside hitter Diana Petrovich. The 6-1 junior finished among conference leaders in both kills and blocks, and led the Lady Bearcats in kills in 23 of their 32 matches in 2008. Rejoining Petrovich on the front line will be junior Rachel Pace and sophomores Taylor Guido, Dawn Timko, and Natalie Hozak. Pace and Guido started all 32 matches last season, while Hozak returns after a knee injury cost her the entire 2008 campaign. As a

freshman in 2007, however, she was one of the top all-around players in the PAC, earning all-conference recognition while finishing among conference leaders in kills, digs, and aces. Senior Christa Calgaro returns to lead the defense, after pacing SVC with an average of 3.8 digs per set, and finishing fourth in the PAC with 42 service aces in 2008. Fresh off of its second place finish at the PAC Championships a year ago, the Bearcat men’s cross country team, coached by Dr. Andrew Herr, also expects its good fortunes to continue. Though the team graduated arguably the top runner in program history in Adam Smith, a three-time PAC champ and 2009 ECAC champion, the Bearcats return a number of their top runners from a season ago. Sophomores Kevin Wanichko and Ryan Barlow finished 2008 with a flurry, with the former taking third at the PAC championships and the latter fourth, while junior Matt Hagg and two other sophomores, Tomas McLaughlin and Josh Hooke, also finished among the team’s top seven in each meet a year ago. Herr’s team will also welcome a number of talented first-year runners, including Jeff Hite, Cam Stumme, and Lucas Briola. The Lady Bearcat cross country team, coached by Tom Harbert, also boasts a number of returnees from a strong 2008 campaign, highlighted by senior Katie Macioce and sophomore Ivette Mejia. Macioce medaled in five different meets last season, including a fifth-place finish at the PAC championships. Mejia began the year with a bang, taking second in the first competition of her career at Westminster Colllege, before battling

through injury in the middle stages of the season. Upon returning, she quickly regained her old form, ending the year with a 10th place overall finish at the PAC championship. A number of talented returnees will join Macioce and Mejia, including juniors Emma Goetz, Claudia Arrunategui, and Brenda Hartman, as well as sophomores Natalie Wolff and Rachel Horne. The team that enjoyed arguably the biggest turnaround at Saint Vincent in 2008 was the women’s field hockey team, led by coach Jym Walters. After finishing 3-15 in 2007, the Lady Bearcats rebounded to go 8-11 in 2008, with seven of the losses coming by one goal. All but two starters return for Walters in 2009, led by senior Maryellen Baverso, the team’s leading scorer in each of the past two seasons. The 2009 squad is quite veteranladen, with six seniors and six juniors, all of whom have been full-time starters in each of the past two years. Baverso will be joined on offense by senior Lauren Scheloske and junior Sam Larkin, both of whom have shown a knack for putting the ball in the net. The midfield will be led by senior Rachel Hill and junior Tonya David, who have both been extremely valuable two-way players throughout their careers, while seniors Judy Spelz and Katie Benedict return to anchor the team’s defense in front of senior goalie Jackie Novak, who looks fully recovered from a knee injury that cost her almost the entire 2008 campaign.

Junior Tonya David spearheads the attack for the women’s field hockey team.

The German pilgrimage included a visit to Carrolltown, where Boniface Wimmer initially planned to establish his foundation.

German Visitors Make Pilgrimage to See Boniface Wimmer’s Legacy

outstretched to embrace a new day, a day devoted, as he wrote frequently, for “the greater honor and glory of God.” Monks, students, parishioners, employees and visitors can’t help but be reminded of his work as they glimpse the statue standing before the imposing Basilica that was completed nearly two decades after his death. A different statue of Boniface Wimmer stands in

the center of a square in his hometown of Thalmassing, Germany, a tribute from the people of his hometown to a native son. In July, a group of 16 visitors from Thalmassing stood before the “other” statue of Wimmer as they made a week-long pilgrimage to Latrobe as part of the yearlong celebration on campus marking the bicentennial of his birth. The invitation

for their visit was extended by Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., when he visited Thalmassing in 1996, on the occasion of the sesquicentennial of Saint Vincent. The pilgrims toured many sites of interest locally and in Pittsburgh. Their visit included tours of the Basilica, the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve, and the Saint Vincent Gristmill, which was constructed shortly after Wimmer’s arrival. They also spent a day in Carrolltown, where Wimmer had initially intended to establish his foundation. The visit helped the pilgrims gain a better picture of Wimmer’s work. Richard Heindl, who came with his wife Irmi, discovered only a few years ago that he was Wimmer’s great-great-great-

nephew. Since then, Heindl has read Wimmer’s biography, An American Abbot, and the recent collection of his letters edited by biographer Jerome Oetgen, Letters of An American Abbot. But even with that research, Heindl, an IT systems specialist, said the full picture of what Wimmer achieved was difficult to picture until coming to Saint Vincent. “To see the towers of the Basilica at night was my first impression of this place,” he said, noting that the visit made a deep impression on him. “For the first time, I realized completely the dimensions of Boniface Wimmer, his person and his work,” said Alfons Kiendl, burgermeister (mayor) of Thalmassing. He said the anniversary of Wimmer’s birth has given everyone an

opportunity to learn more about him. In October, a group from Saint Vincent reciprocated the visit, as they traveled to Thalmassing and Bavaria in October for the Benedictine Heritage Tour. Father Anton Schober, who has served for 30 years as pastor in the church where Wimmer was ordained in 1831, noted that “the real impressions, to be in that place where he was, are much more than I’ve known before. We, who come from his home parish, now can see what it is he has been able to bring about through his life and work. We can only marvel that what he has begun continues to this day, at what rich fruit his work has brought us.” — Kim Metzgar

Admission Website Receives Top Honors


aint Vincent College’s admission website was ranked #1 in the country by in its 11th annual Enrollment Power Index, an analysis of admission websites of all four-year colleges and universities. Each summer, the MCO team of college admission and internet experts conducts a research-based analysis that measures how well college and university websites provide information to prospective students to assist them through the application process.

The study grades over 3,000 institutions on a 100-point scale, including functionality, design and technology components. The criteria for the study are reviewed and updated

annually by internal experts as well as current high school students. Each institution was reviewed by more than 1,000 college-bound high school students.

New Director of Alumni Relations Named


ichael C. Gerdich, a 1998 graduate of Saint Vincent College who has served in the College’s admission office for the past decade, has been named by President Jim Towey as director of alumni relations. Gerdich, 33, will head the department which is responsible for maintaining relationships with nearly 12,000 Saint Vincent graduates in the United States and around the world. “Mike is perfect for this job and I am excited about the energy and experience that he will bring to this important post,” Mr. Towey said. “He did a great job in admission and his love for Saint Vincent is evident in everything he does.”

of Josh Vigna (pictured at left with Zahorchak), a sophomore student from Johnstown, who wrote him last spring. “I couldn’t wait to get here,” he said. “I thought it would be a great idea to visit Saint Vincent.” “We have education at the forefront of this country as never before,” Dr. Zahorchak continued. “For a good reason it is at the forefront because it’s a changing world with changing dynamics. Other countries are working at this too and other states are at it hard. We want to regain our position of national prominence.”
