Rev. Rick Malloy, S.J., Ph.D. on "Catholicism Through Hollywood Eyes," one of five faculty-led sessions with a decided "star" angle --- as in celestial, celebrity, TV, movies, theater, literature, art, music, show business of any sort.
Ed Strauman, Ph.D., delights many with his "Listening to the Movies" session. "A genius," noted one alumna, in her evaluation comments, anonymously, though, so he can't thank her properly!
Assistant professor Suzanne del Gizzo had them riveted with her "Hemingway on the Big Screen." Later that month, Dr. del Gizzo co-directed the 14th Biennial International Hemingway Society Conference in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Dr. Jacqueline Reich covered "The Starring Role of the '60s & '70s," as the two decades influence our lives today.
Regional historian David Contosta, Ph.D. delighted alums and guests with an overview of the beautiful resource that is Wissahickon Park, "Philadelphia's Best Idea."

It's party time --- Friday night's "Lights in the Piazza: CHC Idol Night on the Hill." No shrinking violets, here! The 40th reunion class --- no matter which one it is --- manages to rock this night every year.
Even the reunion volunteers get into the act!
