Fall 2009 Issue
Presidential Road Trips
Throughout the spring and fall, Barry University President Sister Linda Bevilacqua, OP, PhD, hosted several alumni gatherings in cities across the country, including Atlanta, Georgia, Washington, D.C., the San Diego/La Jolla area, Los Angeles and San Francisco. An alumni event is always a joyful and noisy occasion, but alumni are especially happy to have the opportunity to share their “Barry stories” with Sister Linda, who is not only the president of their alma mater but also a fellow alumna from the Class of 1962. Conversely, Sister Linda is always eager to update alums on Barry’s recent achievements as well as the University’s plans for the future. “Most attendees do not know each other when they walk in,” Sister Linda said. “They have one thing in common – they went to Barry and they love Barry. By the end of the evening, they are making plans to continue meeting and asking us to come back next year.”
