The power of reinvention

Washington & Jefferson College Magazine

Throughout its rich and storied history, Washington & Jefferson College has never been afraid of change. In fact, change is something that our College has embraced willingly in order to maintain its reputation as an undergraduate institution of prominence.

President Tori Haring-Smith (left) welcomes former administrators Howard Burnett, president, and Ruth Riesenman, assistant dean, back to campus for a co-education celebration at Homecoming.

Starting in the 18th century, when young men were called away to fight in the Civil War, two rival colleges, Washington and Jefferson, combined to form one united W&J. When enrollment shrank again during World War II, reaching a low of 130 students, W&J opened its doors to veterans with the passing of the GI Bill, gradually returning to its normal size. Forty years ago, when the College was faced with particularly difficult financial times in the wake of the Vietnam War, W&J was required to reinvent itself once again.


The decision to become a co-educational institution in 1970 was not an easy one, I am sure. While W&J was joining the ranks of Yale, Princeton and Williams, all of which were admitting their first classes of women, there were many questions in the minds of the faculty, alumni and trustees of how this change would affect the reputation of the College. Could the College find jobs for its female graduates? Would the men study more to compete with the women, or would they be more distracted? Despite these concerns, W&J forged ahead in welcoming women to the campus, and that strategic decision saved the College.


The year 1970 proved to be a transformational time for W&J. In addition to going “co-ed,” the College inaugurated its 10th president, Howard J. Burnett, and adopted an innovative academic calendar that introduced faculty and students to a January Intersession term. The Presidents also produced their first championship-winning football team since joining the regional Presidents’ Athletic Conference in 1958, giving W&J students—male and female alike—something to celebrate. To commemorate the significance of these milestones, W&J held a special event during Homecoming weekend that reunited those alumni and administrators who played key roles in making 1970 such a remarkable year. It was a memorable reunion that brought back President Burnett and Deans Fred Frank and Ruth Riesenman, the first female staff member hired at W&J. Members of the first class of women rekindled the deep bonds of friendship they formed at W&J by poring over memories of their college days, and the 1970 Presidents returned to the football field amid sounds of cheering and applause from alumni and students. While the campus that these individuals returned to in October was certainly different from the campus they called home 40 years ago, the core of W&J’s enterprise has not changed. We will continue to adapt to the evolving needs of society, as we have done throughout history, but at heart, we will continue to be what we always have been—a place where earnest students and dedicated faculty and staff work together to ensure the success of our graduates. Everything we do—from our small classes to our Magellan Project to our eagerness to welcome new groups of students to campus—is designed to challenge our students and to produce, as our mission statement promises, men and women of uncommon integrity, competence and maturity who are responsible citizens and lifelong learners. This will never change. It is the W&J way.

W&J news By the Numbers: MAGELLAN PROJECT This past summer, more students than ever participated in the Magellan Project, traveling from Ecuador to Egypt, from Indianapolis to D.C., and many places in between. Here is a quick glimpse into some of their life-changing experiences.

Forbes ranks W&J top school in region At number 100 on Forbes magazine’s list of “America’s Best Colleges,” Washington & Jefferson College is the highest-rated institution in Western Pennsylvania, moving up 17 spots from last year. “Our overall ranking, particularly looking at our jump from last year, is exciting because of the criteria Forbes uses to determine the rankings—placing emphasis on areas like student satisfaction and post-graduate success, areas that are important to us,” President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., said. The Center for College Affordability and Productivity, in conjunction with Forbes, compiled the list of 600 undergraduate institutions based on postgraduate success, student debt, four-year graduation rate and competitive awards.



National recognition for W&J has not stopped there. The College also is featured in the 2011 edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges, profiling 300 of the “best and most interesting” colleges and universities in the country. Among the nation’s best-selling college publications, Fiske helps students and families discover the real personality of a school based on its student body, academics, social life and financial aid. “Wannabe doctors and lawyers would be well-advised to give Washington & Jefferson College a look,” the publication states. “This small Pennsylvania college is renowned for its pre-professional programs and graduates are almost guaranteed acceptance into medical or health-related graduate programs. Classes remain small here and, despite the

somewhat rural location, students enjoy an active social life thanks to a hearty Greek scene and the nearby city of Pittsburgh.” In addition, W&J’s acclaimed Magellan Project was singled out by Newsweek in a piece titled, “From Campus to Earthquake Zone: Why so many more students are choosing to study in the most remote areas of the world.” Released this fall, the publication quotes Haring-Smith and Whitney Sims-Rucker ’13, who traveled to The Gambia last summer to research how the country’s recent legislation has helped empower Gambian women.

W&J education expands far beyond campus boundaries Washington & Jefferson College is sending more students out into the world than ever before, according to the latest figures from the Institute of International Education. With 220 students studying abroad in 2009-10, W&J boasts the 26th highest participation rate among baccalaureate institutions in the country. In return, W&J is attracting more international students to its campus, increasing the number of foreign exchange students from five to 33 in just four years.

“While most colleges provide these kinds of international experiences for their students, W&J does more.” – TORI HARING-SMITH, PH.D., PRESIDENT

“We are becoming a global campus,” President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., said. “Students from South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East live and learn with our American students, bringing a global perspective to the residence halls and classrooms.” Haring-Smith says that the benefits of being part of an international campus are significant. “The friendships they form here become the foundation for international understanding, as well as the basis for business networking relationships in the future.” To continue this effort, W&J is teaming up with other regional schools interested in increasing international student enrollment and retention by 10 percent in the next five years. Called the GlobalPittsburgh Education Partnership, the consortium of 11 institutions includes Carlow, Chatham, Duquesne, Robert Morris and West Virginia Universities, among others. “The exchange students who have come to W&J have had good experiences, which has a sort of snowball effect in generating additional interest from students around the world,” Traci Fruehauf,

director of global education at W&J, said. Under Haring-Smith’s leadership, W&J has increased its number of study abroad programs from four to 40, giving students more opportunities to take their education overseas. “Our students are venturing out across the globe as well,” Haring-Smith said. “They travel with W&J faculty during our January Intersession term to learn about theater in England, study the real estate market in China, research the chemistry of perfume in Paris, or explore the politics of East Africa.” Students also can choose to spend a semester or a year studying at a foreign university or plan their own travels through the award-winning Magellan Project. “While most colleges provide these kinds of international experiences for their students, W&J does more,” Haring-Smith said.

On campus, W&J has formed an international-themed residence hall, offering both international students and students interested in studying abroad a community in which to live together. Filled to capacity, the house already is in demand among W&J students. “The International House has the potential of being the center for all things international on campus,” H.J. Manzari, Ph.D., associate professor of Spanish, said. “I would love for this to become a space where our Magellan Project students give talks, where we hold Fulbright and Rotary International Fellowship sessions, and where we offer scholars a chance to speak to and interact with our students.” – ROBERT REID

GETTING A CHARGE OUT OF MAGNETS Bridget Piko ’11 performs research in nuclear magnetic resonance chemistry at Radboud University, a leading research institution in the Netherlands. She worked alongside world-class researchers on projects using extremely rare equipment, from microscopic-sized probes to large, high-frequency magnets. “Not only did this project further my knowledge of NMR, but it allowed for my personal growth and development,” she said. “Taking in the landscape of a different territory is not only empowering, but allows for awakened senses when you return to your home country.”





Texas teens blaze trails at W&J They hail from a close-knit, Hispanic community where family means “pretty much everything,” and from a challenging high school environment where days begin early, in the classroom, and end late, at home, with piles of schoolwork. Luis Amaro, Elizabeth Martinez, Steven Perez and Metzli Rivera are graduates of the YES Prep Public Schools system in Houston and members of Washington & Jefferson College’s newest freshman class. They are the first YES Prep students to attend W&J as part of the College’s IMPACT Partnership with the district, which provides YES Prep students with academic opportunities and support, as well as better access to college. The four students place a great deal of importance on studying, living on a small campus, and developing relationships with those close to them, including one another. While the Houston area remains home, W&J seems to be filling in nicely as their second one.

“W&J is what I want from a college,” Perez said. “I was planning on getting away from Houston, nothing too far, but nowhere too close. I was looking at schools in Texas, but I thought, ‘why not broaden my horizons?’ I came across W&J because it is an IMPACT school. I visited and it was small, like my high school campus. I realize I made a good choice coming to W&J.” Perez said YES Prep prepared him well for the academic challenges of college. As a student at YES Prep since sixth grade, he would attend class from 7:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. It was routine to do homework until 11 p.m. or midnight. Each student gives a lot of credit to the teachers at YES Prep, who often would provide cell phone numbers to their students so they could be contacted in the evening and on the weekends. “The work ethic of the teachers at these campuses is amazing,” Alton Newell, vice president for enrollment at W&J, said. “You walk in the door of one of these campuses and you can tell there is a seriousness and a purpose about education.”

“W&J is what I want from a college. I was looking at schools in Texas, but I thought, ‘why not broaden my horizons?’” – STEVEN PEREZ ’14

Martinez joined each of the students in admitting that she has more free time at W&J than she did at YES Prep. When she first arrived at W&J, she often heard students talk about their classes and the amount of homework they were given. Martinez said she was prepared. “The hard thing is actually managing your time,” she said. “Here I have a class in the morning and then five hours of free time and I’m then back to class again.”

Four members of the class of 2014 hail from YES Prep Public Schools in Houston. Pictured from left are Metzli Rivera, Elizabeth Martinez, Luis Amaro and Steven Perez.



After one semester, the students quickly are becoming a part of the W&J community, getting involved in organizations like the Black Student Union, J-Walkers, Green Club and the Student Government Association, as well as athletics and intramural sports. Amaro already is making a mark as founder of the Latino Club.

At YES Prep, these students, all IMPACT scholars near the top of their class, were thought of as individuals who easily could succeed in the transition to a college more than 1,200 miles away from home. “I actually applied to more than 15 schools, most of them in Texas,” Martinez said. “I came across W&J from my guidance counselor. I came to visit and I liked the school.” In regards to the size of the student body, Amaro added, “There are enough people here that it does not feel small, that I do not feel claustrophobic.” Newell, who has visited YES Prep several times, immediately noticed its similarities to W&J. “We certainly realized that YES Prep and W&J share many common characteristics,” he said. “When they told me about their experience at YES Prep, it all kept coming back to family, community and knowing everybody, similar to the community here at W&J.” In fact, Newell takes that into consideration as he recruits YES Prep students. “I am not just recruiting students. I am recruiting their families as well,” he said. YES Prep Public Schools exist to increase the number of low-income Houstonians who graduate from four-year colleges and to help them compete in the global marketplace. The free, open-enrollment public school system serves 3,500 students across seven schools, with mascots that include wizards, trailblazers, explorers and mavericks. Newell would add “pioneers” to that list of descriptions. “This is the first group, and as always with pioneers, it is a little tougher. These students are groundbreakers,” Newell said. “They will be our ambassadors. No question about it.” While the students have not yet declared majors, they are enjoying the liberal arts experience by taking a variety of classes. Perez, who worked for Marathon Oil in Houston learning from and asking questions of corporate officials, was thinking about becoming a business major, and Amaro, who was considering pre-health, is now considering law school. “The key is to find something you are not only good at, but passionate about,” Newell advised. For now, the students are passionate about being freshmen at W&J. “I love it here. I love the fact that it is family-oriented,” Rivera said. “Our high school did a great job preparing us for college because I did not notice a big difference coming here. I know I made the right choice.” – ROBERT REID

Art students showcase work at renowned gallery Future lawyers converge at W&J Aspiring attorneys from colleges and universities across the region gathered at the Washington County Courthouse in October to participate in the first-ever Founding Fathers Invitational, hosted by the Washington & Jefferson College mock trial team. W&J students competed against teams from Fordham University, Swarthmore College, University of Pennsylvania and Villanova University, winning three of eight trials. More than 40 lawyers from the Washington County Bar Association donated their time to the two-day event, including team adviser and local attorney James McCune. “Mock trials are a huge advantage to students if they want to become trial lawyers,” said McCune, who also coaches teams at the high school level.

Pat Maloney has been a faculty member in the art department at Washington & Jefferson College for more than three decades, and to her knowledge, this is a first. “I believe this is the first time in the history of the College that the art department has ever had a class invited to exhibit their work in a professional gallery,” she said. Nine students from Maloney’s advanced ceramics class, as well as Maloney herself, were invited to exhibit their work at The Clay Place in Carnegie, Pa. It is a gallery where Maloney has taken her students to visit for many years. In December, thanks to an invitation from gallery owner Elvira Peake, Maloney and her students experienced the gallery as artists, displaying their talents to the region.

“The Clay Place is one of the most prestigious ceramic art galleries in the United States,” Maloney said. “Artists who have been invited to exhibit their work there include Toshiko Takaezu, Val Cushing and Kirk Mangus.” The students’ exhibit, titled “W&J Potters: An Homage to Elvira,” showcased pieces that, in some cases, held personal meaning to the artists. One of those artists was Valerie Bott ’12 who displayed candlestick holders she designed in honor of high school friends who have passed away. “This was the first time my work has been on display anywhere,” she said. According to student artist Joanna Krause ’12, the opportunity forced all of the students to work even harder in the classroom. Maloney noticed, saying that each of them “took it up a notch with their ideas, going beyond what they feel they can do.” She added, “They are students, but they are artists. I am really proud of them. This is about their art.”


Douglas Cannon ’12, president of the W&J mock trial team, served as lead prosecuting counsel during the opening trial. “I was pleased with how the W&J teams performed at this event, particularly since it was so early in the season,” he said. According to Cannon, the team is being invited to more events against high-level opponents, giving future W&J lawyers valuable courtroom experience. “These trials will help students in so many ways in the courtroom, particularly when it comes to improving their self-confidence and communication skills,” McCune said.

“Mock trials are a huge advantage to students if they want to become trial lawyers.” – JAMES MCCUNE, ATTORNEY AND TEAM ADVISER

THINKING OUTSIDE THE CUBE Hope Snyder ’14 helps Corrine Knop ’14 solve the Rubik’s cube with the help of the textbook, “The Cube: The Ultimate Guide to the World’s Bestselling Puzzle.” The students enrolled in an Intersession course that uses puzzles and card tricks to teach mathematic permutations. The class is taught by Michael Woltermann, Ph.D., professor of mathematics, who promises students that they will be able to solve the Rubik’s cube at the end of the three-week term. “These puzzles drive many people crazy, but can be solved pretty easily with a little mathematical background,” he said.



The strong attraction Rowley felt toward the College drove her to apply early; and while the honors student could have had her pick of schools, W&J was the only school where she wanted to apply. Now in her senior year, the English major, who serves as president of the Student Government Association and aspires to go to law school, hasn’t looked back. “I enjoy being part of a community in which everyone recognizes and supports each other, and I instantly got that feeling when I came here,” she said. “I knew W&J could provide me with opportunities that other schools just couldn’t.”

“So much change was going on in 1970 that not just one change was being focused upon. Everyone was finding their way…It was really about putting one foot in front of the other.” – JOANNE LADLEY ’74

At W&J, opportunities are abundant for Rowley and her classmates, who can choose from more than 30 majors, compete in one of 24 sports programs, and study abroad in more than 25 countries. The College even gives students the opportunity to design their own majors and plan their own travels if their ambitions exceed the College’s offerings.

In the end, Riesenman’s ability to adapt to change, a skill she honed while working with students at Kent State during the height of the civil rights and women’s movements, made her the ideal candidate for the job. She was offered the position and began work in August, with just a month to prepare for the arrival of the first class of women.

With such an impressive range of options, it is hard to believe that just 40 years ago, attending W&J would not have been a possibility for a go-getter like Rowley, because prior to 1970, the College did not admit female students. However, the remarkable strides taken by the initial class of 116 women at W&J opened up doors of opportunity for today’s young women to enter with confidence.

One of those women was Louise Kirkpatrick Ross ’74, who had her eyes set on Bucknell University until December of her senior year when her family learned that W&J was going “co-ed.”

Uncommon Women Ruth Riesenman never intended on being a pioneer. The headstrong graduate student was more interested in earning her doctorate degree. But in the summer of 1970, when she accepted the position of associate dean of student personnel at W&J, Riesenman became the first woman administrator at the historically all-male institution. It was an opportunity that almost didn’t happen for Riesenman. Just days before she was scheduled to interview for the position at W&J with Dean Fred Frank, unthinkable tragedy struck the Kent State University campus where she worked, killing four students and wounding nine. Riesenman, who still gets the chills when talking about what happened that fateful day, recalls being bused off campus to safety and calling Frank to cancel the interview at W&J. Ten days later, while on a mandatory leave-of-absence from Kent State, Riesenman finally arrived on the Washington, Pa., campus, where a demonstration was taking place in response to the shootings. “When Dean Frank got that quelled, we started interviewing. I met with administrators, faculty members and student government representatives,” she said. “I was on campus from 9 in the morning to 11 at night interviewing.”

“I was in the car before I knew what hit me,” she said. “When I visited the campus, it was a bleak, winter day, but I found the atmosphere so welcoming. I came away with the sense that they really wanted women to come to the College, and it just sort of raised W&J above the rest of the schools where I was applying.”

Finding Their Way The first female students at W&J were not welcomed quietly by their alma mater; rather, they were received by fellow students and faculty with mixed reactions of celebration and contempt. Members of Alpha Tau Omega, one of the 12 fraternities on campus, hung a banner across The Commons that declared, “ATO welcomes co-eds”—a message that later was contrasted by one that read, “Co-eds go home.” A Red & Black headline that positively referred to the transition as “a new beginning,” was challenged by a staff reporter who questioned the impact of the changing student body on the reputation of the school. Pointing to pictures of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson hanging in the lobby of Old Main, the student quipped, “Their mouths seem to be clamped a little more grimly these days.”

Her future classmate, Joanne Ladley ’74, was on the waiting list at Dickinson when she received a letter from W&J inviting her to apply. “It was clear that the College was very tuned into getting as many women as they could to join, and I loved it,” she said.

Though controversial, the women’s arrival was not the only change taking place at W&J in 1970. The College also was preparing to inaugurate its 10th president, Howard J. Burnett, and adopting a curriculum that featured an additional, one-course term in January known as “Intersession.”

Ross admits that the College’s transition from all-male to co-educational also played a role in her decision. “It gave W&J an exciting, added dimension,” she said. “I guess that’s why they call us ‘uncommon women.’ We looked for something added to the college experience that wasn’t ordinary.”

“The school transformed that year,” Ladley said. “So much change was going on in 1970 that not just one change was being focused upon. Everyone was finding their way. President Burnett was finding his way. The faculty was with the new curriculum. It was really about putting one foot in front of the other.”

The “welcoming atmosphere” that attracted Ross and Ladley to W&J 40 years ago still appeals to young women today. When Breanna Smith ’11 visited W&J for a scholarship weekend event, President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., spoke to the visiting group of prospective students. “I thought it was fantastic that the president of the College would take the time to talk to a bunch of students who might not even come to W&J,” she said. “I think that sold me on my decision. You can give me the numbers on faculty/student ratios and everything like that, but witnessing that kind of personal attention first-hand was something special.”

Initial efforts to integrate the male and female students took place three short weeks after the first day of classes in preparation for Homecoming weekend. A cheerleading squad was formed, co-headed by Ladley, and a Homecoming court was elected, presenting a woman candidate nominated by the freshman class. While the Presidents emerged victorious in the football game against Bethany College that weekend, the overall event ignited some upset among the women who felt excluded from the festivities hosted by their male classmates. One of the more outspoken young women voiced her opinions in the Red & Black, writing, WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE


“Unfortunately, the weekend with its parties and dances did not meet expectations. In fact, it left many disgusted and disillusioned about the social activities of this school.” An offended upperclassman responded, “Fraternity parties are a W&J habit—a way of life. W&J co-eds are neither a way of life nor a habit, yet.” While the men may not have considered their female classmates to be “habits,” they could not argue that their presence quickly was generating change within the male-dominated community. According to Ladley, this proved to be “quite an adjustment” for the upperclassmen who did not sign up for a co-educational experience when they applied to W&J. “The men were used to working very hard through the week and playing very hard on the

weekend,” she said. “They weren’t distracted during the week because there were no women here. They didn’t know what to do with us. They didn’t know how to live with women all the time, let alone compete with us in the classroom.” With eight men for every one woman on campus, the social scene continued to heavily rely on fraternity life. Yet the women rejected the idea of forming sororities. “We just laughed when they talked about sororities, because there was no way you were going to break us up,” Ladley said. “We stuck together.” In a 1974 Red & Black article, one of the students asserted that the enrollment of women at W&J was “too diversified to put any number of them into one group.” It was not until 1979 that two sororities established chapters at W&J. Today, that number has grown to four.

Now with Greek female participation at nearly 40 percent, young women are free to enjoy the social benefits that sororities offer, but feel no pressure to join. “Those kinds of organizations, regardless of gender association, just have not been a part of who I am,” Rowley said. “I have a lot of friends who are in sororities, so I don’t have anything against them—it’s just not me.” Ashley Briggs ’11 chose to join a sorority her freshman year to expand her friendship base. Yet she adds that fraternities and sororities do not dominate social life at W&J. “Over the years, I feel the school has done a great job of providing other activities for us,” she said. “Being Greek is definitely not the only thing to do here.” Ladley thinks that their outlooks are fantastic. “It’s so refreshing to see a student like Katy who knew that sororities ‘weren’t her,’ so she was comfortable saying that she wanted to do something else,” she said. “You have to know yourself in order to do that. And it sounds as if today’s students really do.”

Pioneers of Change As the integration of women began to alter the social culture at W&J in 1970, it also generated a heightened sense of competition in the classroom. The freshman women adapted well to the College’s challenging curriculum, which offered courses that had remained largely unchanged from previous terms. “I think the administration accepted that if they were going to have females come to campus, then there was absolutely no reason that we couldn’t achieve the same things the men could if we went about the same path,” Ross said.

Riesenman remembers when one particularly motivated young woman—now a nationally recognized pediatrician—visited her office early in the semester to discuss the classes she was taking. “She was telling me that the professors posted their grades on the wall using only their last names and first initials,” she said. “One day, when they were all standing around and looking at their grades, the men were complaining that one of the students was ruining the curve. They thought it was another guy, but that student was actually her. She didn’t say a word.” “It is nice that they only ran the initial,” commented Ladley, who once encountered some opposition on her research proposal from a history professor. “When I told him I wanted to write a paper on the role of women in the Civil War, he said that I wouldn’t be able to find any research to support the topic. I said that I would do my best,” she recalled. “To his credit, three weeks later when he handed out the papers, he stopped in front of my desk and said, ‘This is the best paper in the class.’ And he handed it to me.” Continuing the research focus on women that Ladley championed 40 years ago is Smith, a senior who is majoring in English and history.

“I focus all of my papers on women’s history, no matter what class I’m in,” she said. “In my Civil War class, I wrote about a Southern belle named Mary Chestnut and whether or not she was a feminist. Last semester, in a Buddhist history class, I talked about the patriarchal structure of Buddhist nuns.” Today, students like Smith can choose to minor in gender and women’s studies and enroll in classes taught by a full-time faculty that is nearly 40 percent female, a significant increase from 1970, when the College employed just four female faculty members. However, if a student wanted to pursue an unconventional opportunity not offered in those earlier years, Ross adds, “They never discouraged us from trying, and I appreciated that. It was an evolution. If they didn’t have something at W&J, it was a chance for us to make a change.” That is why Ladley ignored her male classmates’ warnings that she would not be able to participate in a foreign policy semester at American University in Washington, D.C. “They said that W&J doesn’t have programs like that. But when I presented the information to my professor, he encouraged me to go, and I did,” she said. “The College didn’t have anything for women when we got there. We went ahead and created our own opportunities.” A German major with a passion for traveling, Ladley also took advantage of Intersession trips to Vienna, Austria, and New York City. These kinds of travels are now an integral part of the W&J learning experience thanks to unique programs like the Magellan Project, which provide funding for students who strive to turn their highest aspirations into reality. As a French and international business major, Briggs was given the opportunity through the Magellan Project to travel to Bordeaux, France, where she studied business trends within the country’s wine industry. To help guide her research, the College connected her with a young alumnus who heads the largest fine wine distribution company in the U.S. “He helped me formulate my project and gave me a little more direction. It was amazing,” she said. “When I came to W&J, I was determined to

study abroad, and it has been a monumental experience for me. I don’t think I’d be the same person I am today otherwise.”

Following Their Footsteps Though it took time for change to come to W&J—the College graduated all-male classes for nearly two centuries—change escalated quickly after the arrival of the initial class of 116 women. Upon returning to campus their sophomore year, the women entered a very different environment than the one that greeted them in 1970.

after not seeing us all summer.” Ross added, “We weren’t the special ‘little dolls’ on campus anymore. After all, we had another class of girls coming in behind us.” So the cycle continues. Since the first class of women stepped foot on campus in 1970, the College has matriculated 40 co-educational classes that are continually evolving in their diversity. Today, W&J is home to a student body that is half male, half female, and includes individuals boasting a wide range of ethnic and geographic backgrounds. Yet after 40 years, the special bond that unites the women of the class of 1974 remains steadfast, and the lessons they took away from their experiences at W&J continue to influence their lives, as well as the lives of students today. At this past Homecoming, after becoming acquainted with accomplished young women like Briggs, Rowley and Smith who are boldly following in the footsteps of those alumnae before them, Ladley concluded, “I appreciate those students who acknowledge what it must have taken for us to open the doors that they’re walking through.” – MEGAN MONAGHAN

“There was a huge difference between freshman and sophomore year,” Ladley said. “When we came back, all of the guys were waiting for us in front of Alexander Hall and giving us huge hugs

W&J remembers 1970 as transitional year The year 1970 stands as a milestone in the storied history of Washington & Jefferson College, marking the start of its modern era after nearly two centuries of being an all-male institution. In the spring 1984 issue of the alumni magazine, J.B. Donnelly, professor of history, wrote, “In the 18th century, the present site was selected. In the 19th century, Washington and Jefferson Colleges were united. In this century, the major decision, I contend, was to ‘go co-ed’ in 1970.”

The possibility of co-education came into focus when the College administration set its sights on increasing enrollment to 1,100. According to the fall 1969 issue of the alumni magazine, a comprehensive report presented to the Development Council detailed trends in admissions. The studies showed that the appeal of all-male and all-female colleges was declining, demonstrating “further the difficulty W&J may face in attracting a sufficient number of qualified students if it remains an all-male college.” It also was suggested that “the social revolution of the 1970s will shift the role of women in our society” and that to isolate the male students from these societal changes was to do them a disservice. After extensive research and serious consideration, the College board of trustees voted Dec. 12, 1969, to authorize the admission of women as undergraduate students, effective September 1970. Newly elected W&J President Howard J. Burnett concurred with the decision to admit women to the College. “Co-education in itself will be a contribution to the educational process…It should result in improved academic performance. Their participation in the life of the College also will grace its activities.” Only 40 years old when chosen to lead the school during a time of widespread changes, Burnett was among the youngest of W&J presidents after George P. Hays in 1870 and J.D. Moffat in 1881. During his 28-year tenure as the College’s 10th president, Burnett played a key role in the integration of women at W&J, instituted an expansive building program, and launched several new academic programs, including the Entrepreneurial Studies Program, Freshman Forum, and cooperative international education programs. The adoption of the 4-1-4 curriculum, also initiated in 1970, was the last major change in the College curriculum and resulted in the academic calendar students are familiar with today. It consisted of two 14-week semesters and a one-month term in January called Intersession. The new term offered students a variety of study opportunities, including trips abroad, interdisciplinary courses, and month-long intensive courses on a specific topic. Among the exciting and challenging courses offered during the first Intersession was a 30-day tour of Greece to study archaeology, painting, sculpture and architecture. For those on campus, an analysis of security exchange markets like the New York Stock Exchange, contemporary song writing, space science, and accounting with the computer were just a few of the 60 courses available. – REBECCA KEENAN, U.

A Firm Foundation Their dedication to Washington & Jefferson College is unwavering. Their passion for teaching is profound. The following four professors have been inspiring W&J students for more than 30 years, honing the young minds of the best and the brightest before sending them out into the world to pursue meaningful careers. On a campus that is continually evolving, the influence of these professors is constant— serving as a foundation on which the College can thrive.

As we pause to reflect on W&J’s rich history—one that changed dramatically 40 years ago with the advent of co-education—we turn to those professors who not only have witnessed the College’s growth, but who have played invaluable roles in its progress. Here are their stories, as told by the young people whom they impact each day—W&J students.


Nicholas Cavoti, Ph.D. Nicholas Cavoti’s small office on the second floor of Dieter-Porter Hall is decorated with dozens of framed photographs. Pictures of his wife, children, colleagues and friends line one wall. They obscure one table completely. However, he keeps his first identification card issued by Washington & Jefferson College in 1971 in his wallet.

though some students find the process nerve-racking. He paces his classrooms with a stack of them and chooses names at random, earning his students’ full attention. “As much as every student sits hoping that their name card somehow got lost, they keep you alert, so I guess he has a pretty good method to his madness,” Jenna Wandrisco ’12 said.

The card’s lamination has peeled up from the corners and colored a slight yellow during the past 39 years. Excluding his silver hair and matured face, the now 65-year-old man looks very much like the 26-year-old in the photo. Today, he still boasts a dress shirt and tie and an engaging, warm smile.

Cavoti understands his students’ anxiety. Early in his career, he was closer in age to his own students than to his fellow faculty members, which intimidated the young professor.

The photo is a fond reminder to Cavoti that W&J has been his only employer throughout his adult life. He has been a professor of psychology since 1971 and the chair of the psychology department since 1984. His devotion to the College is mirrored by his commitment to and enthusiasm for a liberal arts education. He received his undergraduate degree in psychology from Ursinus College, a highly competitive, liberal arts school not unlike W&J, and his master’s and doctorate degrees from West Virginia University. The tailored education he received as an undergraduate influenced his decision to teach at W&J. “Having gone through the experience [of a small college], I knew it was a good experience and wanted to participate in the kind of education I had as a student,” he said. “So I knew exactly what I was getting into [at W&J] having gone to Ursinus.” In the classroom, Cavoti is known to use note cards to call on his students. This gives everyone a chance to participate in class discussions, 14


“[It was] a very conservative place when I came here. My first years were kind of threatening,” he said. He encountered many strict and imposing figures, many of whom sported suits and, from his perspective, acted “prim and proper.” Initially, he felt that he was not well respected by his colleagues because of his youth, but he worked hard to prove that he was as capable as any seasoned faculty member. He even donned suits to look the part and, to this day, continues to wear them. His growing pains at the College were mirrored by female students’ struggles to earn the respect of their male peers and professors in the early 1970s. However, it was not long until Cavoti, like women at W&J, became an integral part of the campus community. During his career, he has taught courses on experimental psychology, elementary psychology and organizational behavioral management, among others, and continues to teach even though he has taken on more work as the chair of the department. In addition to his responsibilities at W&J, the jovial professor is a consultant for businesses in regards to behavioral safety and management. Between his

professional obligations, Cavoti has little time left for himself. “After my teaching day is done and all the work with the department is wrapped up and I’ve finished any consulting work, there isn’t much time left for hobbies. But that’s the way I like it,” Cavoti said. “I really do love teaching and I like W&J students. Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to work with young, engaging students with the world ahead of them?” – SHAUNNA BALLARD ’12


Roman Wong, Ph.D.

On a typical morning at Washington & Jefferson College, Roman Wong bustles around his small, square office on the third floor of Old Main, preparing for another busy day of teaching. The open door welcomes visitors into his tidy space, where dozens of mathematics books line the shelves. Behind his desk, Wong sits in a worn, high-back brown leather chair. The mug cupped between his hands explains the pleasant aroma of tea, and his warm smile reveals his passion for teaching—a passion he has passed onto W&J mathematics students since 1978. At 9:15 a.m., class begins. Wong stands on his tip-toes and thrusts his arm toward the ceiling in order to reach the blackboard’s upper edge as he discusses the z-score. Twenty students frantically scribble notes to keep up with the fast-paced lecture. At 9:28 a.m., the sound of chalk against the blackboard ceases. Wong exchanges his piece of chalk for a large, black eraser. He has run out of space. Wong was born in China. After completing his undergraduate studies in Hong Kong, he moved to the U.S. to obtain his doctorate from Rutgers University. He spent one year teaching at Syracuse University before accepting a position at W&J, where he has been teaching ever since. When Wong joined the faculty, W&J had been co-educational for eight years. He believes the College was well adjusted to the change at that time, though he admits that few females were enrolled in his math courses. “I think there were more males than females in my classes not because co-ed was new, but because, at the time, not many females chose to be math majors,” he said. Today, the number of male and female students in Wong’s math courses is equal.

For Wong, “math is timeless.” While the department adjusts courses to incorporate new technology, the actual material has not changed in more than a century. Unlike the content of his math courses, Wong’s role at W&J has changed greatly since 1978. He came to the College solely as a professor, and he taught both math and computer science courses for 10 years. During the last two summers, Wong received grants to conduct research with several of his math students. “Math research opportunities are really hard to get,” Chelsea Cerini ’11 said about her summer research experience. “Dr. Wong gets very involved with his students and gives them amazing opportunities to do research on campus. At the national math conference in San Francisco, we presented alongside some of the smartest mathematicians in the nation.” In addition to providing his students with career-broadening opportunities, Wong also enjoys teaching unique Intersession courses, which, like female students, were introduced to W&J in 1970. He once taught a course on origami mathematics, and the students’ colorful projects still decorate his office. “I enjoy those classes a lot,” he said. “Most of the students are not math majors. I teach those courses to make students, especially freshmen, not feel intimidated to take math courses and to maybe become math majors.”

“Teaching is just such a rewarding profession.”

At W&J, Wong teaches exclusively in Old Main. He appreciates the building’s high ceilings, old age and charm, and stresses that the older technology does not present a problem. Grinning, he adds, “Fortunately, for math, we rely on blackboard and chalk.” When asked why he loves to teach, Wong flashes his widest smile yet. He pauses for a moment, then replies, “Sometimes you get something from your former students and they come back to see you. Some visit me back home. Teaching is just such a rewarding profession.” – AMANDA GABER ’12

In addition to working with college students, Wong occasionally teaches child-level math courses through a community outreach program. While the material may be very different, his teaching method is the same. “You have to be patient to be a teacher,” he said.




Vicki Staton

Of all the red banners that hang proudly in the Henry Memorial Gymnasium, boasting more than 100 championship seasons of Washington & Jefferson College athletics, the women’s basketball banner stands out among the rest. With 12 conference championships, the program is the most decorated women’s sport—an impressive feat for a program that did not get its start until 1975, just five years after the College began to admit female students. The woman behind the titles, Coach Vicki Staton, directed the women’s basketball program for 25 seasons and the volleyball team, which has won six conference titles, for 28 seasons. With 646 combined victories, she has produced the most victories by a head coach in the College’s athletic history. However, Staton’s career at W&J got off to a less than victorious start when the basketball and volleyball teams posted grim records of 0-13 and 0-14, respectively, in their first seasons. The former high school basketball coach, who holds a master’s degree from West Virginia University, was not used to losing. “My first season as coach was a tough one. I’ve never lost like that before,” she said. “I learned a lot that year about basketball and about myself. Most of all, it was a humbling experience. I realized I was going to have to work hard, very hard, to win.” Fueled by the 1972 passing of Title IX, an equal opportunity education act, Staton pushed to receive additional funding and new equipment for the women’s athletic programs to put them on an equal playing field with the men. When she came to W&J, the Presidents’ Athletic Conference was comprised only of male teams, inspiring Staton, along with others, to create the female-only Pennwood West Conference in

1977. The conference, which included teams from Bethany College, California University of Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon University and Seton Hill University, paved the way for female athletes to compete against one another on a fair platform. The Presidents went on to win seven Pennwood Conference championships. Today, students attribute Staton’s unmatched work ethic to her outstanding character. “From the first practice I had with her, I could tell she was a fierce, yet loving coach,” Vanessa Rivera ’12 said. The first tenure-track female faculty member, Staton has retired from her role as head coach of women’s basketball and volleyball, though she continues her involvement with the basketball team on a volunteer basis. However, that has not stopped Staton from continuing to impact W&J athletics as head of the College’s intramural sports program. Noting students’ lack of participation in intramurals, she reorganized the program to include new courses ranging from cardio kickboxing to racquetball, attracting 600 students just last year. After 35 years of dedicated service to the College, Staton has announced that she will be retiring at the end of the year. Though students will no longer find her on the W&J court, they will continue to benefit from her legacy as the driving force behind the creation of women’s athletics at W&J. Staton, for one, is proud of the College’s progression in this field, saying, “W&J has long been recognized for its academic and athletic excellence, and it has been very rewarding for me to play a role in helping our students succeed in both arenas.”

“I realized I was going to have to work hard, very hard, to win.”

W&J celebrates 40 years since first PAC championship

The last thing on the minds of Washington & Jefferson College football fans in 1970 was celebrating a conference championship. W&J had been a member of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference since 1958, but had only produced three winning seasons. From 1966-69, the Presidents had only won five of 29 games. Prior to an early loss in 1969, a season in which the Presidents were outscored by a 223-118 margin, a W&J assistant coach joked to his players, “Gentlemen, just protect yourselves!” However, as the 47 members of the 1970 football team returned to campus for their preseason training camp, Head Coach Chuck Ream noticed a different attitude. Some quipped that, with the arrival of women on campus that year, the first female cheerleading squad would spur the Presidents to new heights. Or maybe the Presidents’ new black jerseys would end the spell of losing seasons. After a tough, mistake-filled early season practice, a dismayed teammate was overheard in the locker room saying, “Get used to this!” Numerous players responded, “We don’t think so. We are going to turn this around.” The tone was set. In the season opener, W&J shut out Bethany 20-0 and narrow victories over Carnegie Mellon (28-21) and Allegheny (20-19) gave the Presidents their first 3-0 start since 1939. Standing in the way of their winning streak was defending PAC Champion John Carroll. After taking a week-four trip to Cleveland to face the Blue Streaks, W&J trailed 12-0 heading into the fourth quarter. After a W&J touchdown, defensive back Dan Copeland ’72 intercepted a pass to give W&J the ball back. With 23 seconds 18


remaining on the clock, Don Kasperik ’72 tossed a 31-yard touchdown pass to Rob Barone ’73 to set off a wild celebration following a 14-12 victory.

“There was always one game each year that just slipped through our grasps,” linebacker Jim Boesler ’71 said. “The John Carroll win… that was a miracle. We were determined to end the heartbreaking losses. We knew we had the talent. We just had to prove it.” W&J improved to 6-0 after wins over Case Western Reserve (20-13) and Thiel (41-28) and clinched the school’s first-ever PAC championship. A 10-0 loss to Juniata ended the perfect season and kept W&J from earning a bid to the Knute Rockne Bowl, the NCAA Small College Division East Regional championship from 1969-72. The Presidents then finished the season on a bright note with a 44-28 win over Wilmington. “The 1970 season was special because we had been down for a few years,” tackle Boyd Yesler ’73 said. “It was satisfying to put together a special year.” Forty years later, members of the team were brought back to campus for a celebration during Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2010. “We had five seniors on that team and three of them came back for this celebration,” Mike Medden ’71, a four-year letter-winning linebacker, said. “For us, it was a Cinderella season and it feels great to be back at the place where it all happened.” Barone, who hauled in the winning touchdown versus John Carroll, had to break a few tackles before getting into the end zone that decisive game. Returning to campus and spending time with his teammates helped bring back those memories. “We all still think about this championship season and appreciate the College’s efforts to bring us back together,” he said. “Sure, we wish we could play again right now, but some of us might not be able to get the pads on.”

Bob McLuckey ’72 served as the team’s captain and was an All-PAC wide receiver and linebacker. He believes the relationship between the College and the city of Washington had a lot to do with the team’s turnaround. “We had a great sense of pride after winning that conference title and we couldn’t have done it without the support of the College and the community,” he said. “We felt everything just came together for us at the right moment and you can sense that the support of the College and community still plays a role in the football program’s success today.” W&J Director of Athletics Bill Dukett, who helped bring the 1970 championship celebration to Homecoming weekend, echoed McLuckey’s sentiments. “This championship team has a ton of memorable stories from their battles on the football field,” Dukett said. “It is important for the College to revisit our past successes. By celebrating that success, our current student-athletes get a first-hand glimpse of how important this accomplishment was.” Even though W&J Head Football Coach Mike Sirianni had not yet been born when W&J celebrated its first conference title, he affirms that the 1970 team’s victory still impacts the program today. “I would have loved to have witnessed some of their games, including that great John Carroll victory,” he said. “After meeting some of the past players and hearing their stories, it is easy to understand why they were the first to win a conference championship. They were focused and determined to turn things around.” When four-year linebacker Jim Denny ’71 reflected on the team’s miracle season, he simply said, “Call us the ‘Cardiac Kids.’ We won every way imaginable that year. It was just meant to be.” – SCOTT MCGUINNESS

Presidents capture second ECAC title

Tim McNerney rushed for 1,009 yards and 18 touchdowns this season, including this 69-yard touchdown run in the ECAC Bowl.

The Presidents capped off a successful football season with a victory in the 2010 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Southwest Bowl at Cameron Stadium in November. Head Coach Mike Sirianni’s Presidents defeated Franklin & Marshall in a wild 54-41 shootout to finish the season with a 9-2 overall record. It was the Presidents’ second ECAC title in history, the first since capturing the 2003 crown at Wilkes. The game featured 938 yards of total offense, including 500 by W&J, and 53 first downs. Wide receiver Jordan Roycroft ’11 was selected as the Most Valuable Player after catching 12 passes for 207 yards and three touchdowns. He caught his passes from senior quarterback Gino Rometo ’11, who capped his W&J playing days with a career-high 377 yards and five touchdowns.

Tim McNerney ’13 added 147 yards and three touchdowns, while free safety Craig Sedunov ’11 recorded a game-high 11 tackles, including the 317th of his career, which vaulted him into second place on the school’s all-time list. W&J made its 12th-straight postseason appearance (10 – NCAA, 2 – ECAC) and upped its streak of consecutive winning seasons to 27. That streak is 10th-best in NCAA Division III history and only three schools (Linfield, Ithaca and Mount Union) own longer active streaks. The 2010 Presidents also became the 16th team to win nine games since 1992. Prior to that year, only 10 teams in school history posted nine victories. Next fall, W&J will enter its 120th season of varsity football with 675 all-time wins, third-most in NCAA Division III history behind Wittenberg (699) and Mount Union (685).

W&J Athletic Hall of Fame picks six The Presidents welcomed back some of the greatest talent in Washington & Jefferson College history for induction into the Athletic Hall of Fame in September, marking the 12th class to be inducted since the Hall of Fame was established. “This year’s class featured not only standouts on the playing field, but also standouts in the classroom,” Bill Dukett, director of athletics, said. “We have 27 ESPN/CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in our storied history and two of them were in this class. We also had academic all-district honorees and a former quarterback who chaired W&J’s English department for 15 years. These individuals are inspirations for our student-athletes to look up to.” The 2010 Athletic Hall of Fame inductees are: Nemanja Kuzmanovic ’03 played on the first water polo team at W&J and was named Most Valuable Player as a freshman. A native of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, he was a four-time Collegiate Water Polo Association Division III All-American. He finished his career with a remarkable 307 goals, including a school-record senior season in which he totaled 76 goals and 25 assists for 101 points. A three-time Southern Division All-Conference honoree, Kuzmanovic also excelled in the classroom with a 3.87 grade-point average. Following his senior year, he was selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team, becoming just the 18th student-athlete in school history at the time to accomplish the feat. Kuzmanovic continued to make waves during the winter season as an All-PAC swimmer. Angelo Morascyzk ’77 has been instrumental in the success of the W&J wrestling program as a student-athlete and coach. He joined the wrestling team in 1973, starting every match for the Presidents during his four-year career. A four-time national qualifier, his 62-14 career record remains the fifth-best winning percentage in school history (.813). His 62 victories were a school record at the time of his graduation and currently rank 15th on the all-time list. As a freshman, Morascyzk earned the wrestling program’s first team point at the 1974 NCAA Division III Championship Tournament. He also was a four-time All-PAC wrestler and, in 1974-75, played a key role on the first nationally ranked team in W&J history. Morascyzk returned to his alma mater as a co-head coach with James White and helped the 1995 Presidents win the school’s first PAC title in 29 years, before taking over as head coach three years later. A. Michael Pratt ’81 graduated as one of the most talented guards in W&J basketball history. As a 5-foot-10 slick ball handler and shooting

guard, Pratt set a single-game school record as a freshman with 13 assists, a record which still stands today. He also led the PAC in assists as a freshman. Pratt earned All-PAC honors three times during his career. Following his senior year, Pratt was elected to the CoSIDA Second Team Academic All-America Team. He is one of only four men’s basketball players in school history to be honored as a national Academic All-American. Pratt finished his career with 1,221 career points, the third-highest total in school history at the time of his graduation.

1994 classmates and Hall of Fame inductees Lynne Yater and Brian Sullivan share a laugh.

Brian Sullivan ’94 was a two-sport standout student-athlete at W&J in the early 1990s. He earned seven letters during his career, four for the cross country program and three for the track & field team.

Yater led her teams to 57 wins, including a 19-5 record as a senior, bringing the PAC and ECAC Division III South Championships to W&J. The ECAC postseason title was the first in school history.

In cross country, Sullivan was a four-time, all-conference performer and named Most Valuable Player by his teammates. As a sophomore, Sullivan placed third at the PAC Championships, earning the school’s best finish since Bill Milroth’s third-place showing in 1959.

Kenneth M. Mason Jr. ’64 was inducted as the 2010 Robert M. Murphy Award Winner. He was a two-sport standout at W&J, lettering four years in football and baseball. As a junior, he earned All-PAC football honors for his play as a defensive back. He also was the team’s quarterback. Mason led the 1962 Presidents to a 4-3 record, which included a four-game win streak after a start of 0-2.

A 1993 CoSIDA Academic All-District winner, Sullivan set school records in both the 5K and 8K races during his junior year. He continued his success during the spring track & field season, earning All-PAC honors on five different occasions. The 1992 Most Valuable Player saved his best moments for his final track & field season as he captured conference championships in both the 5,000 and 10,000 meters. Lynne Unice Yater ’94 graduated as the most accomplished women’s basketball point guard in W&J history. She ended her career as the Presidents’ assist leader with 446, a record which remained untouched for 10 years. Yater also poured in 1,034 career points as a 5-foot-4 guard.

He then helped the Presidents to a second-place finish in the 1963 PAC standings. A 14-6 loss to John Carroll in Cleveland during the final week of the season kept the 1963 squad, coached by W&J Hall of Famer Chuck Ream, from becoming the first conference champions in school history. Mason later led a distinguished career as a professor, which included 15 years as chair of the English department at W&J and 11 years as head of the arts and humanities division.





Fall sports gain


Ask even a casual follower of the Western Pennsylvania collegiate sports scene about Washington & Jefferson College athletics and you are likely to hear a response about the Presidents’ outstanding football program. The reasons are clear. With 27 consecutive winning seasons, 21 NCAA Division III playoff appearances, and the third-most wins in Division III history, the football team’s success is indisputable. However, nipping at the heels of that program’s tremendous reputation are three fall sports— women’s soccer, men’s soccer and field hockey— that are making amazing strides. “Our recruiting model is really paying off and bringing in some of the top talent from all across the nation,” Bill Dukett, director of athletics, said. “We have a group of very dedicated coaches. I think these coaches have used our football program as a measuring stick of where they can also take their programs.” The Presidents’ women’s soccer team claimed its third straight Presidents’ Athletic Conference championship this fall under the direction of three-time PAC Coach of the Year Pete Curtis. Head Coach Ian McDonald guided the 2010 men’s soccer team to its first undefeated PAC regular-season record (7-0) in school history. The field hockey program competed in the Empire 8 Conference championship match for a fourth consecutive season and reached as high as number five in the NCAA Division III North Atlantic Region rankings. “Our coaching staff has done a terrific job identifying talented student-athletes,” Dukett said. “We have achieved great success on the field. Even more importantly, since 2007, 10 of our student-athletes have been named to the ESPN/CoSIDA Academic All-America Team, including one men’s soccer player (Sean Maddock ’11) and one women’s soccer standout (Spencer Ahrenholtz ’10).” The Presidents’ women’s soccer program has posted a 50-29-8 record the last four years since



“I’ve tried to instill a sense of responsibility in the teammates and the belief that together, they can achieve anything.” – PETE CURTIS, WOMEN’S SOCCER HEAD COACH

Curtis arrived on campus. In the previous 17 seasons, W&J averaged just under 6 wins per year. “I’ve tried to instill a sense of responsibility in the teammates and the belief that together, they can achieve anything,” Curtis said. That belief has produced three straight trips to the NCAA Division III Tournament, including a shootout victory in the 2008 first round that marked the first time a W&J women’s sports team ever advanced in a NCAA Tournament bracket. McDonald concluded his 20th season at the College this fall and helped the men’s soccer team earn its seventh postseason bid in history. W&J received the number two seed in the ECAC Division III South Tournament. The 2010 Presidents concluded the season with a 12-4-3 overall record, which marked the lowest number of losses in school history. “We are always striving to reach benchmarks and it is always rewarding to do something new like finish the conference season undefeated,” McDonald said. “That said, we fell short of our ultimate goal, which was to win the conference tournament and advance to the NCAA. But, we have a good, hard-working group coming back and we are determined to get back to the national tournament.” The field hockey program continued its winning ways in 2010 with a 15-4 record. The Presidents’ senior class—Kolbey Seidel ’11, Julianne Zackey ’11 and Kim Marcius ’11—set the school record for 50 victories during a career. Seidel, Zackey and Jennifer Marabella ’13 became the first trio selected to the All-North Atlantic Region Team. Marabella then topped that feat by becoming the first All-American in program history. “I think it says a lot about how much the program has grown and where it is headed,” Jomara Coghlan, two-time Empire 8 Coach of the Year, said. “I am really proud of our accomplishments and of every player on our team. I have emphasized what it takes to be a

winning program and the players worked hard to get us there. At the end of the day, it is the players who have embraced and cultivated this culture of success.” Marabella, who also became W&J’s first Empire 8 Player of the Year, ranked 13th in NCAA Division III with 22 goals. She scored more individual goals than two teams in the conference scored for an entire season. Seidel finished her career as a two-time, all-region choice who posted a school record 21 assists. A three-time First Team All-Empire 8 choice, Zackey had 25 goals and 19 assists in 73 appearances for the Presidents. Marcius was the Empire 8’s second-leading scorer and tied for second in the W&J single-season record book with 15 goals. “These programs have proved that we are on the cusp of some great things here at Washington & Jefferson College,” Dukett said. “We’ve won 60 percent of our overall games since 2008 and our men’s athletic programs have won six consecutive PAC Men’s All-Sports trophies. We are hoping to bring all 24 of our sports to the same level—competing for a conference championship and a spot in the NCAA Tournament every year.” – SCOTT MCGUINNESS

W&J alumni

Presidents unite at Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2010 Sunny skies and warm 70-degree temperatures greeted the more than 1,000 Presidents who descended upon the W&J campus during Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2010. The weekend—which was highlighted by a celebration marking 40 years since the College went co-educational and produced its first championship football team—also featured traditional gatherings like class reunions, legal and medical lectures, and a Pittsburgh-themed tailgate lunch.

The jam-packed schedule of events kicked off with the annual Homecoming dinner where President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., addressed alumni in attendance with stories of student achievements and campus improvements. Festivities concluded at the increasingly popular Fifth Quarter event, where alumni gathered after witnessing W&J’s 31-20 victory over Saint Vincent College and the crowning of Bo Harstine ’11 and Gina Policastro ’11 as Homecoming king and queen. Plans are already underway for the next Homecoming and Reunion Weekend, which is set for Oct. 21-22, 2011.

Alumni honored for service and achievement A pioneering CEO, an award-winning surgeon, and an up-and-coming financial leader were honored by their alma mater during Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2010 for demonstrating unparalleled commitment to Washington & Jefferson College and a high level of achievement in their fields. At the annual Homecoming dinner, the W&J Alumni Association presented Charles “Tuck” Nason ’68 with the Distinguished Service Award; Sheldon Weinstein ’59, M.D., with the Alumni Achievement Award; and Jimil Wilson ’00 with the Outstanding Young Alumni Award. Homecoming honorees gather with Chairman Kenneth Melani and President Tori Haring-Smith at the President’s house before the annual awards ceremony. Pictured from left to right are Melani, Jimil Wilson, Haring-Smith, Sheldon Weinstein and Charles Nason.

From one alumni leader to another, chairman of the board Kenneth Melani ’75, M.D., presented his predecessor, Nason, with the Distinguished Alumni Award in recognition of his years of service to the College.

Weinstein has had a long and successful career as an OB/GYN physician and surgeon—a success that comes as no surprise to classmate and friend Ron Pellegrini ’59, M.D., who presented Weinstein with his award.

Nicholas Cavoti, Ph.D., professor of psychology, was introduced to Wilson in his first class on his first day at W&J. Ten years later, Cavoti was honored to present him with the Outstanding Young Alumni Award.

“His business acumen was a vital component to our fundraising efforts over the years, but what makes Tuck truly unique is his ability to build solid relationships with students, faculty members, the administration and many others who share his passion for W&J,” Melani said.

“We had 125 classmates in the pre-medicine program and one stuck out, the red-headed guy. He was always driven and the leader of small groups,” Pellegrini said.

“One of the wonderful aspects of teaching at W&J is that we genuinely get to know our students as individuals in and outside class,” Cavoti said. “I got to know Jimil very well during his time here.”

A four-term member of the W&J board of trustees, Nason has served the College in numerous capacities, most recently as chair from 2007-10. During this time, he welcomed 15 new trustees to the board, shaped procedures for governance, and helped the College raise more than $35 million in funds, providing key leadership during the construction of the John A. Swanson Science Center. In addition to his role on the board, he served as chairman of the investment committee and development council, was a member of his reunion committee, and hosted alumni events at his home. “I spent four years as a student and four decades as an alumnus. W&J is an important part of my life,” Nason said during his acceptance speech. Professionally, Nason was a pioneer of diversified financial services for The Acacia Group, where he was president and CEO until his retirement in 2005. His career there spanned more than 28 years, including 15 years as chairman and CEO, as well as more than 12 years as managing director of Acacia’s Financial Center in Pittsburgh.




A Phi Beta Kappa scholar, Weinstein continued his studies at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine on a full scholarship. After receiving his doctorate of medicine, he began his career as an OB/GYN physician and surgeon at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Today, Weinstein maintains a private practice while serving as a clinical professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. Weinstein is one of only seven physicians in the U.S. to be honored with two prestigious awards in the field of gynecology— the Distinguished Surgeon Award from the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons and the Vaginal Surgeons Award from the Society of Pelvic Reconstructive Surgeons. Weinstein credits a large portion of his success to his mentor, Dewey Dieter. “Fifty-five years ago, I matriculated to W&J and met Dewey Dieter. He was little in stature, big in presence. Mentors are here at W&J,” Weinstein said in his acceptance speech. “You have to find a good mentor and be a good mentor. The passing of knowledge is the greatest gift.”

During his time at W&J, Wilson, an economics major, co-founded the Economics Club and served as president of the Black Student Union. In the short time since his graduation, Wilson already has succeeded in his financial career. He is a director at PNC Capital Markets, a division of the Pittsburgh-based PNC Financial Services Group Inc., which assists other financial institutions in improving their profitability. Prior to this position, Wilson received his master’s of business degree from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. In his community, Wilson tutors children at Pittsburgh’s Perry Traditional Academy and serves on the board of directors for Pace School, a placement option for children with emotional challenges or autism. He also is involved with the Concrete Playground organization, which holds football and basketball camps for inner-city youth. He gives back to W&J as a member of the Alumni Executive Council. – KERRI DIGIOVANNI ’09

Alumni House named in memory of loyal alumnus and trustee

The McCune family attends the Alumni House dedication ceremony in honor of Barron P. McCune ’35.

The Alumni House, a campus gathering spot for friends and family of Washington & Jefferson College, has a new name. Dedicated in memory of the Honorable Barron P. McCune ’35, a loyal alumnus and trustee of W&J, the house now stands as a testament to his tremendous impact on the College. “The Alumni House serves as the alumni living room—a place to come, relax and reconnect,” Michael Grzesiak, vice president for development and alumni relations, said during the dedication ceremony. “It is completely fitting that this house bears the name of Judge McCune.” A member of the College board of trustees for more than 40 years, McCune served as chairman from 1976-83, profoundly influencing the direction of the College. At the dedication, McCune’s sons, Pat and Jim, spoke on behalf of the family. “I think this dedication of the Barron P. McCune Alumni House would perhaps be the most meaningful recognition that he would have received in his long and busy life,” Pat McCune said. “The memory of the Judge is not only confined to this residence,” President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., said. “His influence over 70 years of association with the College is in every building, every blade of grass, every student experience, and every faculty and staff experience.” The Barron P. McCune Alumni House is located at 335 East Wheeling Street.

Alumni and students connect through mentor program Launched this fall, the Alumni Mentor Program has united 42 Washington & Jefferson College graduates with students looking for guidance as they pursue their undergraduate degrees. The program also gives alumni the opportunity to reconnect with the College by forming relationships with today’s students. Geno McCourt ’12 is grateful for the bond he has formed with his mentor, Dana Devereux ’73, president of the Alumni Executive Council. “It is great to have Dana to talk to because he’s been there before,” McCourt said. “He understands the pressure of college and what advice to give beyond simply working hard.” According to Devereux, the feeling is mutual. “My relationship with Geno has grown to the point where it’s more than mentoring,” he said. “I am truly interested in him and what he is doing at W&J. I think of him often and think I should call, not just because I should, but to find out how things are going because I want to know.”

“My relationship with Geno has grown to the point where it’s more than mentoring. I am truly interested in him and what he is doing at W&J.” – DANA DEVEREUX ’73

The pairings are arranged through the Office of Alumni Relations, providing a confidential environment in which students can feel comfortable expressing their goals and ambitions. The mentor serves as a role model who can offer counsel and criticism, supplying a student with feedback and information when needed. Meetings are generated by the pairs on their own terms so that personal relationships can be fostered without a feeling of demand. The pairing has grown into a meaningful relationship for McCourt, who explains, “Dana is not only a good mentor but a good friend.” Devereux adds, “Knowing and working with Geno has led me to realize that I have received far more than I have given.” Alumni of all professions and backgrounds are encouraged to consider applying for a mentorship position.

THEN & NOW One traveled to the Soviet Union on the first Intersession trip led by John Mark Scott ’69. The other traveled to Zuni, New Mexico, on the last Intersession trip led by Scott. One worked for the College radio station, WJCR, when it was a small studio in the Old Gym. The other works as the sponsorship manager for the current radio station, WNJR, located in the Rossin Campus Center. One graduated from Georgetown University’s School of Law in 1980. The other hopes to attend law school after graduation. United through the Alumni Mentor Program, John Tate ’77 and Dreadless Stubbs ’12 have formed an invaluable relationship rooted in their passion for W&J.

Why did you choose W&J?

What’s your favorite W&J memory?

John: I knew I wanted to go to law school after college graduation and heard about W&J’s reputable pre-professional programs. I liked the location from home—not too far but not too close. I also liked the small class sizes.

John: My favorite memory was the first Russia trip I took with Dr. Scott. It was at the height of the Cold War and it was such a different world.

Dreadless: I heard good things about W&J from people in my community so I decided to visit the College. Once I visited, I fell in love. The people at W&J are genuine.

Who is your most influential faculty member? Dreadless: Dr. John Mark Scott. John: I also would have to say Dr. Scott. I randomly signed up for Russian my freshman year and most of the class was comprised of upperclassmen. Before the first test, I was really nervous and afraid I was going to fail. Dr. Scott saw me studying and came over and talked to me. He sensed I was nervous and reassured me I could do it. I really appreciated that.

Outside your major, what has been your favorite course at W&J? John: Of course, Russian with Dr. Scott, but also political thought. It was a very intellectually stimulating course. Dreadless: I agree about Russian. Another class I like is sculpture. I find myself staying there until 2 or 3 a.m. working on projects.

“I think the College does a good job of pushing you to grow up.” – JOHN TATE ’77

“W&J allows you to learn a lot about yourself.” – DREADLESS STUBBS ’12

How has W&J prepared you for the future?

John Tate ’77 and Dreadless Stubbs ’12

John: The College always has done a good job preparing its students. I felt prepared and had a good experience in law school and the working world. Dreadless: W&J allows you to learn a lot about yourself; you have to, it’s part of the liberal arts education. From taking a variety of classes, you can learn what you like to do. John: I think the College does a good job of pushing you to grow up. You learn to think for yourself.

Dreadless: I come back to campus early each year for football camp, and I like that first day when the rest of campus returns for the fall. John: The first couple days of the semester are neat, when everyone sees each other for the first time. Dreadless: I also enjoyed the trips I took with Dr. Scott to Ecuador and Zuni, New Mexico. Going anywhere with Dr. Scott is interesting and exciting.

What advice would you give an incoming freshman? Dreadless: Try a variety of different classes and clubs but don’t pressure yourself too much. Find something that fits for you, something you like. John: Incoming freshmen should take advantage of what the College has to offer but not spread themselves too thin. They need to remember to keep two feet on the ground.

You were two of the first people to sign up for the Alumni Mentor Program. Why did you want to participate? John: The program sounded interesting. Dana Devereux (Alumni Executive Council president) spoke positively about his experience and I thought it would be interesting and educational for me. I’ve also had two interns from W&J at my company, and had great experiences with both of them. Dreadless: I thought it would be a good opportunity to get a sense of the world and to learn how guys from W&J fare. I also knew I’d always have someone reliable to go to if I needed advice.

What are some highlights of your relationship thus far? Dreadless: We visited John’s company’s plant in Huber Heights, Ohio, that works with fuel cell technology. It was a great learning experience. John: I hadn’t been there yet myself, and it was great. They did a full presentation for us like they do for customers.

What do you hope to get out of the Alumni Mentor Program? John: I hope I can be someone Dreadless can come to for advice, whether it be about W&J, preparing for law school, or his future career. Dreadless: I already have gotten a lot out of it. I think any advice John gives is good advice. I’m excited for our relationship to grow. I can see John becoming one of my best friends. – KERRI DIGIOVANNI ’09



W&J veterans document foreign war stories Paul Ohrman ’44 knows how to keep a promise. When serving as a combat engineer in the U.S. Army during World War II, he met a dying man at a German concentration camp who asked Ohrman “to tell the world his story.” Ohrman, who studied German as a student at Washington & Jefferson College, assured the man that he would and took his photograph with a press camera issued to him by the military. More than 50 years later, that photograph, along with 200 others taken by Ohrman during the war, are published in a book dedicated to that man’s story. The book, titled “Bridges to Peace: World War II through the Lens of a Combat Engineer,” is Ohrman’s first-hand account of the war as he experienced it through personal recollections and photographs. “A couple of years ago, the news told us that 1,000 veterans were dying each day. Now that number is up to 1,500,” he said. “Before our memories dim and our numbers fade away, it is important for those of us who lived the war day by day in the front lines to document our experiences.” Now other foreign war veterans who graduated from W&J are able to join Ohrman in this mission. The College’s U. Grant Miller Library, in conjunction with the American Folklife Center, is participating in the Veterans History Project to collect the oral accounts of U.S. veterans who served in or supported foreign wars. By reaching out to members of the W&J community, to date, the library has videotaped interviews with 17 alumni veterans. The videos are then submitted to the U.S. Library of Congress where they are permanently archived among the world’s most treasured collections. “It is a great opportunity for people of different backgrounds to connect with one another,” Jeffery Brunner, digital projects and systems librarian at W&J, said. “Our student volunteers were honored to talk with alumni who attended W&J more than 50 years ago, and the veterans were excited to share their experiences with our students.” Michael Digman ’11, a business major who volunteered to participate in the project, was impressed by the veterans’ abilities to recall specific details from that time period. “I can’t believe how much they are able to remember, just like it was yesterday,” he said. Foreign war veterans interested in participating in the Veterans History Project can contact Brunner of the U. Grant Miller Library at 724-223-6539 or More information is available at – MEGAN MONAGHAN

Alumni support region’s first army community center The September opening of the nation’s third Army Strong Community Center, located in Coraopolis, Pa., was attended by LTC Stephen Lockridge ’89 and Luke Ravenstahl ’03. The center provides counseling, employment and other services to soldiers’ families in Western Pennsylvania. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, these services are available to active-duty soldiers and their families who live at major military installations, but are less accessible to the Reserve’s 207,000 citizen-soldiers scattered across the nation. The Army selected Coraopolis for the new center because of the 2,500 Army reservists and their families living in the Pittsburgh area. “With the nearest active component military installation a four-hour drive from Pittsburgh, this center will serve as a virtual installation providing services to local military, families and veterans,” Lockridge said. Ravenstahl, who signed a covenant pledging the city of Pittsburgh’s support of the center, said, “That signature is just the beginning of a longstanding partnership.” Other family centers are located in Rochester, N.Y., and Brevard, N.C.

Giving with HEART BELOVED DONOR CONNECTS WITH RESIDENTS OF NAMESAKE DORMITORY A long-time supporter of W&J, Violet Bica-Ross (center) enjoys frequent visits to campus, especially to spend time with her “kids,” or residents of Bica-Ross Hall. Bica-Ross has continued a tradition of generosity that started with her husband, the late L. Clayton Ross ’30, by providing capital gifts, scholarships and unrestricted funds. Her scholarship fund is a permanent endowment that provides students with financial aid not only today, but in perpetuity. Bica-Ross also has included the College in her estate plans. As a member of the Old Main Society, she joins other like-minded alumni and friends who have made provisions in their wills, trusts, insurance plans or retirement plans—thus ensuring the College’s future financial strength.

Giving with PROMISE DONORS GATHER TO CELEBRATE OPENING OF CAMPUS LANDMARK The John A. Swanson Science Center opened with much fanfare in April thanks to the alumni and friends who generously invested in its creation. Donors were given the opportunity to personally dedicate the classrooms and laboratories made possible through their support, including Ronald V. Pellegrini ’59, M.D., who is accompanied by wife Donna Lucas Pellegrini, and their children, Luke and Francesca. As the chief of adult cardiac surgery at UPMC, he has performed more than 15,000 open heart surgeries during his distinguished medical career. Additional donations made to the W&J Science Initiative will support renovations to the Dieter-Porter Life Science Building and help provide student scholarships, research funds and program funding in the sciences.

Generous donor support given to important initiatives like the Magellan Project and International Programs Fund allowed more than a third of W&J students to study abroad during the past year. Whether engaging in student-initiated independent study, traveling with an Intersession class, or spending a semester abroad at a foreign university, W&J students are rapidly gaining life-changing global experiences. Magellan recipient Morgan Link ’13 spent a month last summer in Ofaaka, Ghana. A teacher at The Good Shepherd Orphanage, Link worked with a fifth-grade class of 43 students between the ages of 10 and 15. While there, she was able to use donation money to buy 26 pairs of school shoes for female orphans and provide students with school supplies.

Proud family members of D’Rese Despert ’10 congratulate her on an accomplished college career after the 2010 Commencement ceremony in May. Parents play an invaluable role at W&J. In addition to entrusting the College with their children’s education, many go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of W&J students by providing the College with additional financial support. The W&J Parents’ Council was established to promote the importance of giving to the College through the Parents’ Fund, which supports projects like College Central, a career resource database. Last year, with the help of the Council, more than $70,000 was raised by W&J’s dedicated parents.

Members of the W&J Athletic Hall of Fame, a prestigious association of the College’s finest alumni athletes, support the football team by serving as co-captains for the Homecoming game against Saint Vincent College. These co-captains, as well as many former W&J student-athletes, also give back to the College through participation in the Pete Henry Society.

Named after Wilbur F. (Pete) Henry ’20, the Pete Henry Society provides W&J alumni and friends with a way to benefit current and future generations of W&J student-athletes. Proceeds from the annual golf tournament held in June are used to support W&J’s 24 athletic programs.

W&J gives me the resources to learn whatever I want. From learning how to break into biometric fingerprint scanners in my Information Security class to producing a music video with an alum who works for HBO, there is nothing I have not been able to accomplish. And thanks to a work-study program with the College web manager, I know that after graduation, I want to be a web developer. But no matter where my career takes me, I am confident that W&J has prepared me to meet the challenge.

My degree. My story. My W&J. Each student at W&J has a unique story. It is our aim to provide them with the resources to help them share their stories with the world. When you give to the W&J Fund, you have an immediate impact on students like Brian, providing crucial support for programs related to financial aid, student activities, faculty recruitment and athletics.
