Introducing the March/April Issue

March April 2013

Have you received our March/April issue yet? If not, your copy’s well on its way.

That “Designing Woman” on our cover is Carrie Fishbein Robbins ’64, a Distinguished Alumna and long-time Broadway costume designer. The story, by Chris Raymond ’87, features photos of Carrie in her NYC studio filled with vintage costumes and accessories, all captured by photographer Deborah Feingold (whose work you might recognize).

Another feature story,“Future Tense,” is my Q&A with David Almeida, professor of human development and family studies here at University Park. He talked to me about his research into the physical consequences of daily stress. To borrow some Oprah lingo, I had lots of “Aha!” moments during our conversation—especially when Professor Almeida talked about strategies for keeping stress at bay.

And in “Students Without Borders,” by Erika Spicer, you’ll learn about undergrads who are traveling the world as part of some cool new classes at Penn State.

Other good stuff in this issue: a short profile of All-American wrestler Quentin Wright, a Penn State entomologist’s bedbug breakthrough, and updates on the Paternos’ response to the Freeh report and the lawsuit against the NCAA.
