Hmmm. Twenty-five instant sisters freshman year on our hall – an exhilarating experience for a shy only child finally away from home. Exceptional teaching – especially Dr. Madtes, Dr. Ketchum, Dr. Devor, Mr. Heeschan, and Mr. Logan. I still value and use the rigor and discipline I learned particularly from Dr. Madtes. Singing – Chapel Choir, then Allegheny Singers. Special friendships, some of which remain strong to this day. And meeting Tom McGrath in the nick of time,  just before he graduated. Education after Allegheny M.A. in English (is there any other major?) at Alfred University, part time while I was teaching (also part time) and raising two babies (more more »

Feist, Jerry

So many memories are still fresh in my mind. People, places, things. Growing, learning, trying new things. Allegheny people and experiences were formative in my development. For example: Blue Freshmen beanies!! Making friends in the dining hall, sit-down-dinners where I minded my manners. Being called to attention in ROTC and being told, “President Kennedy has just been assassinated.” The excitement of classes where I learned totally new ways of understanding. Discovering I had no idea how to study. The agony of deciding whether to be an “Independent” or join a fraternity; then “Which to join?” Learning to ski on outing club trips.
