'Caturday: Alumni Wildcats at Reunion University

russian downton

Dean Lindenmeyr brought to life the period of the Russian revolution with research and anecdotes about the Countess Sophia, her family, and the politics of that era.

Unlike 8:30 a.m. classes that students sometimes have during the school year, the first session of Reunion University started at 10:30 a.m. and featured the newly appointed Dean of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Adele Lindenmeyr, who presented her research on A Russian Downton Abbey: A Countess, a Great Estate, and the Russian Revolution.

There was a buzz of energy and lots of chatting just before the reclassification session began.

After lunch, old friends and alumni association colleagues gathered for On the Move: Preparing for Villanova’s 2016 Reclassification and Re-ranking. Ann Diebold and Jim Trainer explained the process that leads to a Carnegie Foundation reclassification. Re-ranking of Villanova University by U.S. News & World Report would follow suit and place Villanova in the national, rather than the regional, category.

Talented and passionate faculty, staff, students and alumni are proof positive that Villanova will continue to ignite change. Go Nova!
