Thank you for all the support you have

shown Arcadia University during the past year.

The involvement and financial contributions

of alumni, parents, trustees, faculty, staff and

friends help make student success possible

at Arcadia.

Over the past year, the University

community has embarked upon a process of

implementing the Strategic Initiatives that

emerged from our planning process. These

initiatives capture the elements that we believe

are most crucial to continued student success

in today’s global society. They range from the

personal attention that is the hallmark of our

intimate campus environment to the global

perspective that sets our graduates apart in the

competitive marketplace. Our initiatives also

involve the continued evolution of a learning

environment that integrates classroom theory

with real world practice.

This edition of the Herald includes a feature

story on pages 6 and 7 that illustrates the

power of incorporating fieldwork, internships,

study abroad, and other hands-on experiences

into our academic programs. These experiences

flow naturally from our broad base of general

education courses as well as our disciplinespecific

major courses where theory and

principles are taught. The end result is

a student who graduates with experience

in his or her field and has the ability to solve

problems in a global environment.

Many universities do some of these things

some of the time. At Arcadia, that’s not our

definition of success. We believe every student

deserves our personal attention. Every student

should have access to a global perspective,

in the classroom or through study abroad.

And every student should have the

opportunity to practice applying his or

her knowledge and skills.

We believe every student

deserves our personal attention.

Every student should have access

to a global perspective, in the

classroom or through study

abroad. And every student

should have the opportunity

to practice applying his or her

knowledge and skills.

To achieve that level of success requires

your continued support. In recent years,

Arcadia has been recognized among the top

universities in the Northeast, earning high

marks from U.S. News & World Report,

Barron’s and The Princeton Review. This status

among the nation’s elite private universities

reflects not only upon our faculty and

students, but also upon our alumni, parents,

trustees, staff and friends, who make this

continued success possible.

Arcadia’s alumni giving rate is among

the highest in the nation because of each

individual who makes a decision to support

the University’s vision for the future. I hope

you will consider joining me this year in our

new President’s Circle giving clubs.

Annual Fund dollars make success happen

at Arcadia! Thank you!

Jerry M. Greiner

President of Arcadia University




n June 30, 2005, the

University closed its books on the most

successful year in our illustrious history.

More than $6.8 million was received over the

course of the year. The thousands of people

and organizations chronicled in this report

contributed to this accomplishment and are

extended our profound appreciation and

appropriately recognized for the distinction of

their support. There are many traditions at

Arcadia University that we celebrate yearly, but

none is of greater importance to Arcadia than

the tradition of voluntary support. It is essential

for Arcadia, as a leading private university, to

turn to our many thoughtful and generous

alumni, parents, and friends to provide the

resources that enhance the quality of an

Arcadia experience for students and faculty.

It is essential for Arcadia, as

a leading private university,

to turn to our many

thoughtful and generous

alumni, parents, and friends.

This past year, the University engaged

a leading national consulting firm to work

with President Greiner, the Board of Trustees

and the Advancement staff to assess our

fund-raising programs for “best practices”

and to benchmark our relative position against

institutions of similar size, stature and

performance. The review was the first ever

undertaken by the University and was

conducted so that we might better understand

our positions of strength and challenge.

The conclusions reached by the consultants

noted that, building upon the strength of

existing programs and success, “Arcadia is wellpositioned

to move its fund-raising programs

to the next level.” Several recommendations

came from the review, and implementation

of many is under way.

One of the strongest messages we received

in our review was to streamline our benefactor

recognition levels. Toward this end, the

various forums used in the past to distinguish

contributors yearly will be dropped and, as you

will read next, we have adopted the President’s

Circle to recognize contributions at different

levels beginning at $1,000. Members of the

Circle will be invited to special functions

and receive personal insight into the workings

of the University from President Greiner.

All contributions, regardless of designation,

will qualify benefactors for membership.

In addition, we will introduce lifetime

giving recognition by establishing the Kistler,

Gates and Landman Societies. Fund-raising

success at the University over the past two

decades is attributed, in part, to the leadership

giving from alumni, parents and friends.

We now wish to recognize these people

while at the same time honoring three

former Presidents who positioned the

University to enjoy our current prominence

in higher education.

And without reservation, we continue to

value and benefit from all contributors at all

levels who year-in and year-out support the

University. Their loyalty has made it possible

for Arcadia to consistently rank at or near

the top of U.S. News & World Report’s list of

colleges with the highest alumni giving rates.

The Knight Society, named after our mascot,

has been established to honor and recognize

alumni who have a history of unflagging

support. Through June 30, 2006, our inaugural

year for the Knight Society, all alumni who

make a gift will become members, irrespective

of past history of support. So, please join today,

by using the reply envelope folded into this

issue, and we look forward to seeing your

name listed here in the 2006 Annual Report.

On behalf of our students—past, present

and future—thank you sincerely for making it

possible to share the happy results for last year,

contained in the following pages.

Jay Vogel

Vice President for University Advancement





Arcadia values each and every

donor. Saying “thank you”

to the alumni, trustees, faculty,

staff, parents and friends

who invest in Arcadia is so

important that the University

has created new ways to show

its appreciation to those who

contribute to Arcadia’s present

and its future. With prestigious

annual giving clubs, lifetime

giving societies and a loyal giving

society, the University recognizes

those who help make the

Arcadia University Promise

a reality.

These new recognition clubs and giving societies are being initiated

with the 2006 Annual Fund drive, which is now under way, and

incorporate gifts made in the 2005–06 fiscal year. This Annual Report

reflects giving to the 2004–2005 Annual Fund drive and is the last report

to use the previous giving club designations. Watch for more brochures

and mailings with details on all the new programs.



Arcadia University is pleased to introduce the President’s Circle.

Starting with the 2006 Annual Fund, gifts of $1,000 or more qualify

a donor for recognition in the President’s Circle. Donors at this level

will be invited to a special event with the President.

Within the President’s Circle, recognition clubs include the

Renaissance Club for gifts of $25,000 and over, the Medallion Club

for gifts of $10,000 to $24,999, the Coronet Club for gifts of $5,000

to $9,999, and the Tower Club for gifts of $ 1,000 to $4,999.

Another special designation being introduced this year is Castle

Benefactors. This club recognizes those giving from $250 to $999.

As always, Arcadia is grateful to those at the Contributor level for their

gifts up to $249.

It All Adds Up: Proper recognition requires good math, so starting

this year, all gifts made by a donor to the University in the fiscal

year will count toward the total annual giving club level. Previously,

only unrestricted gifts made specifically to the Arcadia Annual Fund

were counted for this purpose. Now, every gift—including restricted,

unrestricted and capital gifts—will be included in a donor’s annual

giving total.



For the first time in Arcadia University’s history, new recognition

societies are being founded to honor individuals for their lifetime giving.

These new societies are named after former University presidents.

The Kistler Society recognizes lifetime giving of $1 million or more.

This society is named in honor of the Rev. Dr. Raymon M. Kistler,

University President from 1940 to 1960.

The Gates Society recognizes lifetime giving of $500,000 to $999,999.

This society is named in honor of Dr. Edward D. Gates, University

President from 1960 to 1982.

The Landman Society recognizes lifetime giving of $100,000 to

$499,999. This society is named in honor of Dr. Bette E. Landman,

University President from 1985 to 2004.

For these societies, a benefactor’s lifetime giving total includes all gifts

made to the University throughout the benefactor’s life as well as gifts

made through a bequest or estate. Once a benefactor has earned a place

in one of the lifetime giving societies, the membership is permanent.



Arcadia’s alumni giving rate is among the highest in the nation, as

ranked by U.S. News & World Report, because of each individual who

makes a decision to give. The new Knight Society recognizes Arcadia’s

most loyal alumni—those who give to the Annual Fund every year.

Any alumna/us who makes a gift to the 2006 Annual Fund automatically

becomes an inaugural member of the Knight Society of loyal giving.

Those who continue to make a gift of any size to the Annual Fund each

year will remain members of the Knight Society.

Knight Society Charter Members are those alumni who have given a

gift to the University every year since 1985 (the year the University began

electronic record-keeping) or every year since graduation, for those who

graduated in 1985 or after.

The benefits of Knight Society membership include special

recognition at Arcadia events and an annual program solely for

Knight Society members.



At Reunion Weekend on June 2 to 4, 2006, classes will present much

larger ceremonial checks to President Greiner and will have more

opportunities to leave their mark on Arcadia.

This year’s checks will include five-year totals for each Reunion class.

This new University tradition means that classes will add up all the gifts

from the five-year period since their last Reunion. These giving totals

will include Annual Fund gifts (both unrestricted and restricted),

capital campaign gifts, bequests and life-income gifts.

The new method for calculating Reunion gifts was introduced

at Reunion Weekend this past June. Using this formula, the Class

of 1955 gave the University an historic Reunion gift totaling

$1,088,316—the first Reunion gift ever to exceed $1 million.

Also part of a new Reunion model is greater alumni involvement

in bringing these meaningful Reunion gifts to the University for

Reunion weekend. Starting this year, Arcadia University is enlisting

the help of alumni in the Reunion classes to call on each other

and encourage each Reunion alumna or alumnus to make a gift

of personal significance in honor of Reunion.

In addition to this challenge to the Reunion classes, individuals

have more opportunities to make a lasting impression on Arcadia.

Reunion alumni from the Class of 2001 who qualify through the Senior

Class Challenge Program will see their names inscribed on their Alumni

Fund Walk of Pride pavers.

In another Reunion special challenge, many alumni are remembered

through the Reunion Year Charitable Gift Annuity Program. Alumni

who create a charitable gift annuity in honor of their Reunion year will

be eligible to name a Landman Library chair. Please call the Office of

Planned Giving at 215-572-2781, for more information.

Taking the time to honor alumni and friends, who give so much

every year and throughout their lifetimes, is always an important part

of Arcadia’s University Advancement program.

Patty Darling Kile ’56

Patty Darling Kile first contributed to Arcadia in 1957, the very first year after

she earned her B.S. in Education, and she has not missed an Annual Fund drive,

which makes her a charter member in the new Knight Society of loyal giving.

In her early years as a teacher, her gifts out of necessity were modest, but her

commitment to Arcadia was steadfast. “I became a teacher because of my

education at Arcadia. I didn’t have scholarships, but I know many of the girls did.

I feel it’s important to help those who need it now.” Kile returned to Arcadia

for her Master of Education in 1978 with a specialization in gifted education

and then earned her reading certification. She finds time for photography,

scherenschnitte, other crafts and writing for publication.

She enjoyed her 35 years of teaching, including the flexibility it gave her to

travel in the summers with her husband, Wils, and to take time to raise their two

children. Her career also allowed her to save for retirement through IRAs and

403(b7) accounts. After years of contributing to those accounts, she now finds

that the law requires that she begin withdrawing from them, and that means

paying taxes on the withdrawals. Celebrating her 50th Reunion in 2006, she has

found another way to give back to Arcadia. Putting her IRA withdrawals into

a charitable gift annuity gives her a chance to make a substantial donation to

the University and also to get benefits in the form of tax deductions and retained

income. Her generous life-income gift, celebrating her Reunion, qualifies her

for a Landman Library chair with her name on it.

Kile also donates her time for Arcadia. As a Fund Agent, she leads by example,

encouraging her classmates to support Arcadia. And she’s been a Class Notes

editor for the Herald for 20 years. With more

than 80 women in her class, Kile writes

numerous letters and e-mails. She and

her Reunion co-chairs, Harriet Baisch,

Tana Pratt, and others including

Ruth Campopiano, are planning

for a wonderful turnout for their

50th Reunion in June.

Advancement staff prepare to welcome participants for the Seventh Annual Ray McCollum

Memorial Golf Tournament on a bright and sunny Monday, October 4, 2004. The Tournament,

held at LuLu Country Club in North Hills, Pennsylvania, raised nearly $50,000 for the Ray

McCollum Scholarship Endowment. Left to right, Felicia Lundrigan, Maryanne Bowers,

Georgene Pilling, Janet Gala.


For four years, senior Ralph Giangiulio has owned a piece

of green in the middle of campus. The eight square yards

between the goalposts are his turf to protect. With a goalsagainst

average of just 0.5 this fall, he’s been fierce in the net.

The Marlton, N.J., native came to campus to watch

Vince Abate ’01 lead the Knights to a PAC championship,

and he knew Arcadia was where he wanted to play soccer

and study business administration. For several years, he

shared the field with another Abate, Vince’s younger

brother Matt. In the spring, Giangiulio added a semester abroad at Bond University in

Australia to his résumé.

“I tell everyone what a great opportunity I had at Arcadia,” he says. Alumni get to

leave their marks on Arcadia via Reunion chairs in Landman Library and pavers on

the Alumni Fund Walk of Pride. But Giangiulio has left his impression in the matted

grass and dented earth, where his body landed as he fought off opponents who dared

to invade his goal.

Arcadia gave Jennifer Vessells, a painter, the best of both worlds.

“By choosing Arcadia, I was able to get a liberal education as well

as study abroad to experience what life was like at an art school.”

Her semester at Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia,

gave Vessells the opportunity to immerse herself in her painting and

in another culture. She returned eager to tell others about Arcadia.

The opportunity for students in every major to study abroad is part of what

makes Arcadia unique. The chance to be an Orientation Leader, a Senator

in Student Government, a member of the Student Programming Board,

and more adds value to Vessells’ University experience.

Now Vessells is a tour guide, and she has found that giving back to Arcadia takes

many forms. Students like Vessells, a junior, help attract the next class of high-caliber

freshmen. “I want to make a positive impact on people who are interested in attending

Arcadia,” she says.

The Bette E. Landman Plate is presented at Reunion

and honors the Reunion class with the largest gift to

The Alumni Fund. Barbara Danziger and Anna Laura

Thompson accepted the Plate on behalf of the Class of

1950 from Rosemary Deniken Blankley ’57, National

Chair of the Annual Fund, joined by President Greiner.

The Ethlyn Selner Mack Bowl is given each year at

Reunion to honor the Reunion class with the highest

percentage of participation in The Alumni Fund.

In June, the Bowl was awarded to the Class of 1955

and accepted by Fund Agents Elsa-Lu Greenblatt Berkowitz

and Anne Cornell Swalm on behalf of their class.




Carrie Allgeier Cardillo ’96

As she talks them through their eye exams, Dr. Cardillo’s patients would

never realize that she was once a soft-spoken science major. “Arcadia did a lot for

me in terms of character-building,” says Carrie Allgeier Cardillo ’96. “It helps me

in my job every day.”

She realized when she was choosing a college that she didn’t want professors

who knew her “just as a number. That was part of the reason I chose Arcadia

University,” she says. “I was shy in high school, but I forced myself to be more

outgoing” by becoming an Orientation leader and working with the Student

Alumni Association. The Arcadia environment made it easy for her to get to

know people. “You could talk to (then) President Landman or another student,

and everybody was friends forever.”

Dr. Cardillo earned her B.A. in Interdisciplinary Science, which was “a big

jumpstart” for the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. The undergraduate

science program was tough, she says, but “the first year of optometry school

was mostly a repeat of what I’d already learned.” She currently practices in offices

in Stroudsburg and Allentown.

Dr. Cardillo gives each year to the Annual Fund to help other students enjoy the

same benefits of an Arcadia education. “I know what things were like when I went

there, and I want to make sure today’s students can have the same experience.”

She’s hoping to relive a little of that college comradeship at this year’s Reunion

2006, where she and her classmates will mark their 10th anniversary. She also will

celebrate her first wedding anniversary

with her husband, Rob, this spring.

rcadia University opens the door to a new

giving society this year by inviting all alumni to join,

but membership soon will become limited to the

University’s most loyal alumni—those who give every

year. The Knight Society is a new donor recognition

society honoring alumni who give a gift, of any size,

to the University every year.

Any alumna/us making a gift to the 2006

Annual Fund automatically becomes a member

of the Knight Society of loyal giving. Those who

continue to make a donation—large or small—to

the Annual Fund each year will remain members

of the Knight Society.

“We already have a cadre of alumni who have

given every year since graduation, and they are

recognized as our Knight Society Charter Members,”

said Vice President for University Advancement Jay

Vogel. “Recognizing that this concept is brand new,

and in an effort to allow all current alumni the

opportunity to join this new Society, we are wiping

the slate clean. Any alumna/us who gives a gift to

the 2006 Annual Fund becomes a member of the

inaugural class of the Knight Society.”

Knight Society Charter Members are those

alumni who have given a gift to the University every

year since 1985 (the year the University began

electronic record-keeping) or every year since graduation,

for those who graduated during or after 1985.

To make a gift to

the Arcadia University

2006 Annual Fund

and begin your

membership in the

Knight Society, please

use the postage-paid

return envelope

enclosed with this

issue of the Herald.

The benefits

of Knight Society

membership start with

a thank-you magnet

and a brochure about

the Society. An event

solely for Knight

Society members is

being planned.

“When others see

just how many of our

alumni already give

every year, it will be a great way to encourage our

new alumni to start a tradition of giving when they

graduate and a wonderful opportunity to honor the

University’s most loyal alumni,” says Vogel. The Knight

Society was created in conjunction with President Jerry

Greiner and the University Advancement Committee

of the Board of Trustees.

Bedside manner won’t be any problem for Julia “Jaa” Dyer, a health

administration major who plans to go to the University of Medicine and

Dentistry of New Jersey after she graduates from Arcadia this year.

Eventually, Dyer plans to open her own medical practice. She became

a Resident Assistant her sophomore year because she enjoyed mentoring

and helping her peers, an activity she started in high school. “I enjoy

helping people as they go through different developmental stages, just

being there to hold their hand,” says the senior, who now oversees the

first and second floors of West Heinz Hall.

Dyer has been a Freshman Peer Mentor and a Diversity

Mentor. She’s been president of the Sisters of Support (SOS), a discussion group

for black women, for three years. And she is the student coordinator for Storytellers,

a campuswide dialogue series about multicultural issues.

Dyer may talk softly, but she also carries a big stick as captain of the Arcadia

lacrosse team. A defender, she was named to PAC’s All Sportsmanship Team in

spring 2005.

Arcadia’s Empty Bowl Dinner 2004 raised over $7,000, a

record amount, and collected 21 boxes of nonperishable food

items. The proceeds from this hunger awareness event were

distributed to the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Northwest

Philadelphia and Heifer Project International, a worldwide

relief agency that provides farm animals for families in

developing countries. The bowls were made primarily by

Arcadia Fine Arts students, and the soups, breads and desserts

were donated by local restaurants, businesses and individuals.

The food was served by Aramark, managers of Arcadia’s

Dining Complex.

Elinor Towell Chevalier ’56

Books have been a constant in Elinor Towell Chevalier’s life, a constant

that was reinforced during her college days. She also appreciates the broadening

aspect of change and was happy in her senior year to switch her major from

French to English. “Each required so much reading that I decided to gain credit

for the books I really wanted to read, the areas I hadn’t gotten to on my own.”

In the schedule squeeze to fulfill requirements, she received permission to

eliminate Modern Dance. “Avoiding it was one of my major achievements.

Dancing barefoot on that gym floor horrified me. It was bad enough passing the

swimming test in a pool in the basement at the Jenkintown campus,” she says.

“Barbara Bopp coached me for that.”

Chevalier’s passion was books, novels, poetry, American Literature with

Mrs. Sturgeon, and English with Dr. Hinton. “In the small school that we went to

at the time, no one encouraged change, but she (Sturgeon) encouraged change.

She increased the depth of my reading.”

Chevalier is a voluminous reader. Among her friends, “people expect me to have

read everything. Althea Trutner has added to my must-read-and-tell-about list of

books. Joan Cranmer shares her perceptions as well.”

The Beechwood Library, Chevalier remembers, was a rectangular room over the

gymnasium thoroughly managed by “Whispers” Wheatley. Chevalier earned her

master’s in library service from a university with a seven-floor library, so she

appreciates that Arcadia is “not the same place we attended,” especially with the

new Landman Library.

“I give in honor of what I knew, and I also respect the change and growth that

has occurred at Arcadia,” she says. “I appreciate how far Beaver has come, how its

size and condition didn’t limit the vision

of what Arcadia could become. Instead

of being satisfied…somebody realized

what else could happen and also

found ways to fund it.”

Julie Tippens ’06, International Peace and Conflict Resolution

graduate student, spent last summer working with street children

in Nairobi, Kenya, as an intern with UNICEF. She is spending her fall

semester studying gender issues and equality at the United Nations

University for Peace in Costa Rica.

Last spring some of her class traveled to Costa Rica to do a case study on

how to resolve the needs of a few—indigenous peoples in the southern part

of the country—with the needs of the many. The government wants to build

a large hydroelectric dam that would flood the indigenous people’s land.

Tippens and other students in the master’s program in International Peace and

Conflict Resolution are able to integrate overseas field study with their classroom

theory coursework because Arcadia budgets for study abroad as an integral part of the

learning process, rather than a stand-alone experience.

“If you get students out in the world, it makes what they’re learning in the classroom

more relevant,” says Dr. Warren Haffar, program director. Support of Arcadia’s Annual

Fund makes it possible for Tippens and others to do research around the world that

gives them relevant, marketable skills, competitive with other elite universities.

Catherine Null and

Kerry Ann Costello-Null ’92, ’94M

Charles “Chuck” Null was recently married, recently laid off, and just

turned 40 when he grabbed the opportunity to redirect his life. Already in love

with his new wife, he soon fell in love with her alma mater, too.

“His goal in life always was to teach. We made a commitment that he would

go back to school,” says Kerry Ann Costello-Null. She earned her B.A. in

psychology/special education from Arcadia in 1992, followed by her Master

of Education in 1994. She is the school director at Wordsworth Academy in

Elkins Park, Pa. In winter 2002, Chuck Null enrolled in Arcadia’s Master of

Education program in pursuit of his professional dream.

“He fell in love with Arcadia,” says Costello-Null, who is the Fund Agent for

the Class of 1992. But in 2004, he was diagnosed with cancer. “Chuck didn’t

get to finish graduate school, but he loved it, and it was always his goal,”

says Costello-Null. “School was something that he really, really cared about.”

“A day after his funeral (March 2005), my mother-in-law said we should find

a way to memorialize him,” says Costello-Null. Charles was Catherine Null’s

only child, “and her whole goal is to make sure that her son’s dreams will be

remembered. He would have been proud.”

Over the summer they finalized plans for the Charles Null Memorial Scholarship

for non-traditional students—students like Charles, who follow their hearts to

Arcadia in pursuit of their dreams. “We paid for his tuition on our credit cards.

I really felt strongly that the scholarship needed to help a non-traditional student,

because that’s exactly what my husband was.” In addition to setting up the

endowment, which will provide scholarships for years to come, the two women

made an additional gift so that the first scholarship could be awarded this year in

Chuck’s memory.

In fall 2004, the men’s soccer team won the

Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC)

title for the third time in four years and

advanced to the second round of the NCAA.

The 19th-ranked Arcadia team battled third-ranked Salisbury

University to a 1-1 tie after 110 minutes of soccer, but fell in

penalty kicks. In women’s softball, Laura Fencik ’07 was named

a second-team, All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches

Association. During the 2005 season Fencik broke the Arcadia

record by slugging 18 home runs while knocking in 61 runs.

She had a .455 batting average and a .962 slugging percentage.

Knight Society Invites All Alumni to Join

There is no secret door in the Castle that lets alumni into Arcadia’s new

Knight Society. In fact, Arcadia is hoping all its alumni will want to join.

The Knight Society has been created to honor Arcadia’s most loyal alumni,

those who give every year.

The Knight Society is being formed with a cadre of Charter Members,

who have set a high standard by giving every year since graduation,

or since the University started electronic record-keeping in 1985.

Since the Knight Society is a new concept, ALL of Arcadia’s alumni will

be given the opportunity to roll back the clock, as if they were just graduating

this year. Any alumna/us who gives a gift in the 2005–06 fiscal year will be eligible

for initial membership in the Society. A gift of any size each year will sustain

the membership. Don’t miss this chance to join!

The Knight Society, where loyalty reigns!



Louise Stevens ’90M

When Louise Stevens found the newspaper listing for a Beaver College

course in Math Education, she was already teaching elementary school, but she

knew she wanted to enroll.

It was a team-taught graduate course in probability and statistics, with lots of

group projects. Her group consisted of two other “mature” women and a young

student. “We were from four totally different backgrounds and life experiences,

but because we had to work as a group, we became good friends.”

Her appetite whetted, Stevens took one course after another, but “I’d never even

heard the term ‘matriculation,’” she says. “Then one day Dr. (Richard) Polis called

me into his office and asked, ‘Do you have an adviser? Are you matriculated

yet?’” Soon she was well on her way to her master’s in Math Education.

Not long after she received her degree, Stevens’ elementary school principal

wanted her to revamp the English curriculum. Fortunately, a position teaching

math became available at the local high school. To her surprise, she was

appointed department chair before the year was out. And rather than stopping

there, she continued her coursework, eventually adding 39 more credits

before she retired. Along the way, she encouraged three other teachers in her

department to enter Arcadia’s master’s program.

Stevens hasn’t stopped learning, but her classroom is now about 40,000

kilometers in circumference. Her husband, Peter, is of Italian descent, so Italy

is a frequent stop, along with other parts of Europe and Australia. “There’s a

whole part of history and culture that we never get in school books,” she says.

Thanks to Annual Fund donors like Stevens, many Arcadia students also have

the opportunity to use the world as their classroom. “We have been comfortable,

and we feel it’s important to support Arcadia,” she says, both through annual

donations and by referring new students to Arcadia.

Arcadia values each and every gift, just as it treasures each student and every alumna/us,

parent and friend. New gift clubs introduced in the 2005–2006 fiscal year demonstrate the

University’s sincere “thank you” to all who contribute to the University’s present and its future.

The President’s Circle will include all donors giving at least $1,000 in a fiscal year, with

graduated levels of recognition including the Tower Club, the Coronet Club, the Medallion

Club and the Renaissance Club. Donors giving $250 to $999 will become Castle Benefactors.

All gifts to the University in a fiscal year will count toward a donor’s annual giving club level.

President’s Circle

Renaissance Club $25,000 and over

Medallion Club $10,000–$24,999

Coronet Club $5,000–$9,999

Tower Club $1,000–$4,999

Castle Benefactor $250–$999

Contributor up to $249

School spirit was contagious as midnight rolled around and

the men’s and women’s basketball teams entered the darkened

Kuch Center under the glare of the spotlights.

Joseph Patrick Archie ’77

Joseph Patrick Archie’s connection to Arcadia runs deep. Freshman year

introduced him to an unlikely pair of pursuits that became life-long passions:

philosophy and tennis. His baccalaureate work at Arcadia led him to defer law

school so he could continue studying philosophy. Focusing on ancient Greek

texts and ideas, he earned several graduate degrees, including a doctorate from

Bryn Mawr College and Oxford University in England. He then entered law

school, adding a J.D. from Harvard University, where he was an Editor of the

Harvard Law Review and graduated with honors. In the midst of all that was

a year as a tennis teaching pro.

After Harvard, Archie served as a law clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals and

started practicing law at Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York. In 1995, he

returned to the Philadelphia area, joining the international law firm, Dechert

LLP, where he is now a partner in the litigation group and specializes in appeals.

He works principally on issues that arise in complex civil litigation matters such

as class actions. And he continues to be an avid tennis player.

Archie’s roots at Arcadia remain strong. He has been a Trustee for three years

and currently serves on the Audit and Academic Affairs committees. He has

generously supported the Annual Fund each year, as well as special projects

such as the Library and sports facilities. “An institution that teaches the rigor and

joy of both intellectual and athletic pursuits and introduces one to people like

Helen Buttel, Pradyumna Chauhan, Bill Bracy, Siu-chi Huang, Barry O’Connor,

Ray Rose, Betty Weiss and many others is worth cultivating,” he says.

Arcadia welcomed 577 new students – 435 freshmen and

132 transfer students – to campus this fall. For the first time

transfer students will have the opportunity to participate in a

“preview” as they plan to travel to Florence and Rome this

spring break with the University's new Italy Preview program.

Some new names will be appearing on campus next summer. Fifth-year Reunion alumni

from the Class of 2001 who qualify through the Senior Class Challenge program will see their

names inscribed on their Alumni Fund Walk of Pride pavers. And some names from the classes

of 1956 and 1981, among others, will be adorned on chairs in the Landman Library.

In addition to individual recognition, Reunion classes will be recognized for their five-year

giving totals. The giving totals will include annual giving, capital gifts, bequests, and life-income

gifts. Each total will continue to build until Reunion in June. Gifts made to the 2006 Annual

Fund will mean larger class totals presented to President Greiner at Reunion Weekend,

June 2–4, 2006.

Alumni who create a charitable gift annuity or other life-income gift in an amount

corresponding to their Reunion—$2,500 for a 25th Reunion, $5,000 for a 50th Reunion,

for example—will have the opportunity to name a Landman Library Chair.

Dr. Mark P. Curchack

Mark Curchack has donned his academic regalia for Arcadia’s

Commencement more than two dozen times. First as a professor and then

as an administrator, he has watched graduates venture into the world each May,

only to be replaced by a new class of eager freshmen in August.

For the faculty and staff of the University, the cycle is entwined with the

changing seasons, feelings of pride in the graduates turning to expectation

as the new students arrive.

Curchack came to Arcadia 28 years ago and taught anthropology for 10 years

before becoming the college’s first presidential Executive Assistant and Board

Secretary, helping President Bette Landman reshape the campus from Beaver

College into Arcadia University and guiding the University’s reaccreditation

studies. He has been Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies since 2001.

“If you add up the teaching years and the administrative years, this is my career.”

The best reason for investing three decades in Arcadia, he says, “is the job that

we do with our students.”

His leadership positions at Arcadia also have given him the opportunity to be

involved with colleagues across the country, and sometimes around the world.

An inveterate traveler whose academic discipline involves the study of modern

cultures, Curchack has used these opportunities to make a lifelong network

of friends and play a leadership role on a national scale. “It’s really been an

incredibly central part of my life. I don’t think I am

able to repay the institution for the kind of

extra benefits that I’ve experienced.”

Curchack and his wife, Peggy, also spend

a lot of their personal time traveling.

Before a trip to Mali, they decided it was

time to update their wills, and it was

natural for Curchack to include Arcadia

among the beneficiaries. He also has been

a loyal Annual Fund donor, and there is

a bookshelf in the new library with his

name on it, a small indication of the indelible

mark he’s made on the many students he has

watched graduate over the years.

Gifts to Arcadia come in many forms—from Annual

Fund gifts to endowments; from bequests to life-income

gifts. The staff of the Office of University Advancement

is available to answer questions and provide assistance

about all these giving options.

ost of the University’s

mailings focus on the Arcadia Annual Fund,

which has the broadest participation from

alumni, parents and friends. Please note

that once an individual makes a gift to the

Annual Fund, that person will not receive any

additional solicitations during the fiscal year.

By making an early gift, donors can enhance

the value of their gifts by saving the University

further postage and printing costs.

For more information about making a gift

to Arcadia, contact the Office of University

Advancement, 450 S. Easton Road,

Glenside, PA 19038, 215-572-2945. An Online

Giving Form is available on the University

Web site at www.arcadia.edu/givingback.

Alumni, parents, trustees, faculty and friends

of Arcadia could hear from a student, a member

of the University Advancement staff, or even

President Jerry M. Greiner as Arcadia kicks off

Annual Fund 2006.

The Annual Fund secures funds for the

University’s ongoing programs and daily

operations. The Annual Fund makes up the

difference between the actual costs of running

an internationally recognized University and

what tuition brings in each year. Gifts can be

unrestricted or designated for a specific use.

Designations can include Academic Support,

Buildings and Grounds, Library Operations,

Student Scholarships and Student Services.

To make a gift to the Arcadia Annual Fund,

please use the postage-paid return envelope

enclosed with this issue of the Herald.

Or call Judy Severin, Director of the Arcadia

Annual Fund, at 215-572-2124, or e-mail her

at severin@arcadia.edu.


Many employers match contributions made

to charitable organizations. Please ask your

employer if a corporate matching gift program

is in place. Often a spouse’s employer also

will match personal contributions through

a corporate matching gift program. In most

cases, you will need to fill out a company

form and enclose it with your gift. Securing

a matching gift can sometimes double or triple

the impact of your gift to Arcadia University,

and you receive credit for the full amount of

your gift plus the match.

For more information about matching gift

programs, please call Judy Severin, Director

of the Arcadia Annual Fund, at 215-572-2124,

or e-mail her at severin@arcadia.edu.


Major gifts to Arcadia support capital

expenses, such as building projects and

expansion, and they often add to the

University’s endowment, a pool of capital that

provides yearly income for the University.

Major gifts are sometimes part of a capital

campaign, and often are pledged over a number

of years. Gifts of a certain size—starting at

$25,000—allow the donor to create a named

endowment, such as a scholarship honoring

a loved one or favorite faculty member. In this

case, the donation continues to grow as part

of the endowment, while a portion of the

income is spent every year to fund the donor’s

intention. The impact of the gift grows larger

over time.

For more information about major gifts

to Arcadia, or about named endowments,

please call Tina Hennessey, Director of

Special Gifts, in the Office of University

Advancement, 215-572-2781, or e-mail her

at hennessey@arcadia.edu.


Planned gifts can benefit Arcadia University

while helping the donor save taxes, increase

income and pass on more to his or her heirs.

Planned gifts include bequests, life-income gifts

such as certain types of trusts and charitable

gift annuities, gifts of life insurance, and gifts

involving retirement accounts and real estate.

Planned gifts often cost the donor very little

while giving Arcadia a gift of real significance.

When the University realizes the benefit of

a planned gift, that money becomes part of the

University’s endowment, shaping and inspiring

Arcadia’s future for years to come.

For more information, contact the Office

of University Advancement at 215-572-2945,

or e-mail plannedgifts@arcadia.edu.

More information about these gift options,

including personal illustrations, also is available

through Arcadia’s Planned Giving Web site,
