Now, Not Never!

Two years ago, Lori Tharps ’94 was at a crossroads, content in her life as a tenured professor but longing for something new. After attending her 25th Reunion, and hearing similar stories from classmates, she took a leap of faith, upending her comfortable life in pursuit of her true passion. These days, she couldn’t be happier.

Retirement Revolution

Many questions people have about retirement have nothing to do with finances. Ida Offenbach Abbott ’69, author of Retirement by Design: A Guided Workbook for Creating a Happy and Purposeful Future—a Wall Street Journal pick for best book on retirement—talks about some of these concerns and how retirement today is very different from what it used to be.

‘We Must Approach Preparedness Collaboratively’

The best way to be ready for the next pandemic—and there will be another one—is to work together as a global community.

‘Education Is Meant to Be Active’

The world needs big thinkers. Moving forward, we must educate engaged citizens able to solve complex problems.

‘Slowing Down Was at First a Challenge, Then a Gift’

The ‘stillness’ of the pandemic forced many of us to focus on our creativity. Life post-pandemic will be better for it.
