Dear Albright Reporter,

I have always enjoyed reading The Reporter ever since I became an alumna of Albright College, but have really enjoyed the last two issues. My favorite professors over my four years at Albright are the Andrones and Barbara Fahy. I was a double major in history and English and took as many classes as I could from the three of them. They never ceased to amaze me with their wealth of knowledge and kindness. Both Richard Androne and Barbara Fahy were my academic advisers and I will never forget the times I spent visiting their offices and would end up staying for over an hour because of the great discussions we had. Thanks again for helping me to remember some of the best times I had at Albright!

Dear Albright Reporter,

Without power recently due to Superstorm Sandy - and without hope of getting it back on until at least a week later - my family and I decided to take a road trip rather than sit in the dark the weekend following
the storm.

Having not been back to campus for a number of years, we chose to visit Reading, Pa., to check out the Albright football game and do some Christmas shopping while in town. Upon visiting Albright I was really struck by two things. First, the campus looks fantastic! Having read about all of the recent building projects in The Albright Reporter, it was great to see the Schumo Center, Science Center and all of the upgraded athletic facilities in person.

Second, the friendliness of the people we encountered during our visit was really appreciated. Be it at the bookstore, stadium or just walking around campus, everyone was quick to say hello and make my family
feel welcome. In fact, my twin boys - Matthew and Cole – couldn't stop talking about meeting the Albright Lion.

In all, although my family was inconvenienced by the storm, we were luckier than many whose lives were affected by Sandy. I'm also sure that it won't take another hurricane for us to visit campus again in the near future.
